Support 802.1q at WAE device?


I'm sy jeon

I wonder if the cisco WAAS support 802.1q.

We are planing to attach the cisco wae to ethernet switch.

as you know, we should configure the two vlan to WAE, one for PBR, wccpv2, other to return the traffic to router.

if so,How can I configure 802.1q in WAE,

if our network configuration is incorrect, please give me advide about that.

Thank you.

Re: Support 802.1q at WAE device?

Hello Sy,

Cisco WAAS does support 802.1Q. It depends on your deployment setup. If you are using WCCP, there will be no need to configure dot1q trunk as the traffic will be handled either by redirect/return method. For the return method, it can be either ip forwarding (WAAS will used configured default gateway) or GRE Return if using a configured egress method of negotiated return or Generic GRE.

If you are using inline interception, meaning you will be using an inline card to intercept the traffic, then you can configure dot1q trunk for the inline ports and define which VLANs you would like to intercept and optimize traffic on.

Let me know if this answers your question.
