Content Engine and L4 Switches

I am network administrator in a big company, the case is as follows:

I have a new Content Engine 590 and I want not to use wccp, I will buy a new cisco L4 switch and want to use it with the engine, some one told me that it is not supported by my engine, is that true or not???

I have a cisco router and I can use wccp but papers from different web sites writes that L4 switching performance is better, is that true???

thanks

Re: Content Engine and L4 Switches

The feature is code-specific, and the content engine will support L4 switch forwarding. You might want to look at this document to see the sample configuration for this. If you scroll passed the CSS config you will see what the CE configuration will look like.

If you weren't interested inL3 WCCP on your gateway router and wanted performance, you might want to look into the L2/mac re-write redirections you can do with a Cat 6K and a CE:
