We are increasing the bandwidth of our head office WAN link from 8 Mbps frame relay to a 20 Mbps ethernet connection, this connection goes into a service provider MPLS cloud for our network.
My question is increasing the speed of the WAN link to 20Mbps will that have any effect on the operation of the WAE-7326?, will latency become a problem? what is the maximum bandwidth environment that a WAAS box can exist in and continue to work well?
Note our WAAS operate in one arm mode NOT inline.
I did some checking and here are the recommended # of TCP and Bandwidth for your box - WCCP or Inline deployment does
n't matter. Keep in mind these are general guidelines and some environments must be different but this will keep you close.
WAAS 4.1.3 (Cisco EOL'd the 7326 after 4.1.3 release)
Max # of TCP Connections - 5000
Max BW on WAN - Unoptimized - 155Mbps
Max Optimized Throughput - 450Mbps
Core Fan out - 672
