UADP based platforms, both older (C3650/3850) and newer (C9xxx) do
support MPLS encap and VXLAN encap and can be extended in future to
support others. There are new 9xxx based off UADP 3.0 with 40G and 100G
ports:

Nexus 7k supports MPLS with LDP while Nexus 9k supports MPLS but
with SR (IGP) or BGP-LU (no LDP support).
