Just curious what advantages each platform (7K vise ASR1K) would provide in respect to building an OTV layer 2 extension.

The ASR supports things like NAT, firewall, etc.  The Nexus would have much higher port density.  

Bottom line is that the ASR is a router and the Nexus is a switch.

Just curious if there any advantages to either in respect to OTV.   There must be discreet differences between the two platforms and how these differences would influence the decision as to which platform to employ in any given situation.

No difference with respect to OTV.  Think of it like the OSPF or GRE.  The difference between those on a 7k vs. an ASR1K is negligible.

Please explain your reason for the "C" grade.

From the grading guidelines:

C should only be given for an incomplete solution that does not fully address or answer the question. A C grade should be awarded only after the asker has replied to all expert comments, provided all requested information, tried all suggested solutions, given the experts ample time to reply, and received clarification about the answer given. The asker must justify giving a C grade and give the experts an opportunity to improve it.  If the answer provided is incomplete or unsatisfactory enough to get a C grade, the asker should consider deleting the question entirely.

sorry dude...I never give out C's

I must have been in a rush and clicked the wrong grade.   The worst I have ever assigned is a B and that is when someone just grabs a Cisco.com URL and sends it my way.

How do we remedy this?
