WAAS network design

Hi all,

In enterprise network there are these WAAS devices: several SRE-SM-700-K9 modules (each installed in separate branch border routers) and WAE-674 appliance located at head office. At the head office border router there is no WAE module installed (there is only WAE-674 appliance at head office). Branch sites are connected to Head Office via IPsec tunnels. How all of these devices must come together to optimize traffic flows from branch offices to central servers? Which device mode to select on WAE-674 appliance - application-accelerator or central manager? If application-accelerator mode is selected, where to place WAE-674 appliance assuming that Head Office border router has one inside and one outside interface?
