we are in the need of doing a proof of concept to a service provider customer, to whom we have proposed a 6500 based security solution. Local Cisco have planned to come through with a POC but thats going to take some time. We also have some equipment and are trying to do a POC our selves. Following is our expected setup.
1. 6509 chassis with sup 720
3. 6748 linecards (no DFC)
Customer is putting up a hosted data center. and also hopes to deploy managed security services to the hosted DC customers. Following are some of the items that i've noticed missing and required for the above list.
1.) virtual FW licenses
2.) good traffic generator (possibly a generator which can raise security events in FWSM and IDSM)
What I also need is a proper setup and a proper guide as to how to do this(possibly a documentation of a similar set up at Cisco CPOC)
any idea on such documentation. Also, can you suggest a good traffic generator for this purpose. Possibly a software one
Many thanks guys
