Can you please elaborate on your question?



Sorry, I had a problem with the web. My comment was:

I know that other products such as Juniper's WXC supports Bandwidth Management. Does Cisco WAAS support it too?

Bandwidth Management means:

- Guarantee a minimum bandwidth for your most critical applications.

- Set maximum bandwidths to limit (or drop) low-priority traffic.

- Set priorities to determine how the “excess” bandwidth is allocated.

Thanks in advance.

The WAAS architecture relies on the underlying network infrastructure to manage the QoS for each type of traffic/application. WAAS provides the ability to mark/remark DSCP values in order to signal to the network infrastructure how traffic should be handled.
