My company is considering a evaluation / test of the WAAS etechnology. We already use 2811 remote routers and core 7206 routers. Our switching is by Enterasys (Cabletron). Enterasys switches do not support WCCPv2. Will we be required to upgrate to Cisco switches to get the WCCPv2 support? Does WAAS require WCCPv2 ?

WAAS does not require WCCP for interception. You can also use Policy-Based Routing (PBR), although I'm not sure if there is an equivilant on Enterasys switches.

Can you not run WCCP on the 2811 and 7206 routers?
