Cisco Nexus Titanium Image

Hello Experts,

Can someone please provide a link to where I can find the emulator image for nexus called Titanium?

I know its been leaked on the internet, however is it possible to obtain the image from Cisco's website?

Cheers

Carlton

Hi Don,

What does that mean?

I'm sure I read it's out on the Internet

Internally means that only Cisco personnel within a specific business unit have access to it.

As you stated in your original post, leaked means that it's not intentional. I'm guessing someone was able to obtain a copy and posted it somewhere.  But it is not legitimate.  Kind of like downloading a pirated copy of a movie.

Furthermore, it's not very useful.  It's a control plane emulator.  No data plane.  Which means that you'll be able to configure OSPF, but it won't actually route traffic. In BGP, the neighbor adjacencies won't form. The list goes on.

Yep.  And I've got a bridge you can buy. :-)

Seriously,  I've talked to people that have used it.   You can "configure" things, but they don't work anywhere near they way they're supposed to.  75% of the labs for the CCNA DC courseware simply do not work.  And those are about as basic as you can get.  

That said, it's expected to be released to Cisco Modeling Labs in January/February.
