  2. One huge advantage Nokia has over Cisco is being able to dump out your configuration in the exact context you are in with “info” or “info detail” (detail to show all “default” parms). Also, the structure to me is much more intuitive and easier to use as an engineer moving around the box.

    Cisco has an advantage of being able to dump all sorts of config into the box prior to “commit”ing the config, where as Nokia makes changes as the commands are put in much like IOS.

    1. Hi Eric,
      Yes, I fully agree with you. “info” is very useful command, especially upon troubleshooting. It’s interesting that Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) has partially implemented such two-stage commit. It’s available there only for route-policies configuration. Probably it was done in order to reduce traffic blackholing during changes of route-policy.

  3. Thanks for this great article,
    One weird question is how to display tables (like route-table) from Nokia on the screen without being missed up. Is there any way to make ssh screen wider so that all the columns fit in?
