Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers are next-generation, modular, services-integrated routing platforms designed with the flexibility to support a wide range of 4- to 16-millions of packets per second (mpps) packet forwarding, 5- to 20-Gbps system bandwidths, performance, and scaling.


One of the many features that are supported on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series is Web Cache Control Protocol (WCCP) Version 2. By way of this feature, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series enables a lot of new high-speed and transparent linkages to the existing advanced technologies such as WAN optimization and email security.


This document provides details of the extent of WCCPv2 protocol features that are available in Cisco IOS Software XE Release 2.2. It will also cover the integration of the above-mentioned technologies and how they work on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series.
