I have a customer whom has a Cisco CE 510 installed. currently they are using it just for Web Caching.

I remember reading at some point in the past that this Content Engine could serve video. Is this accurate? Is there any documentation to support this?

Live and on-demand Video is definitely supported.

1. You need to figure out how to intercept the traffic you want to serve (wccp, proxy-pac, etc.) You may need to add services to your intercpetion technology.

2. You need to have a license for ACNS for Windows Media (and Real) support.

3. You may have to re-partition the drives for MediaFS if you want to cache VOD and CDNFS if you want to pre-position VODs and other files.

Here is a link for Video support in ACNS 5.5.
