While we had overall idea of the design direction, we have identified other points that were integrated into the final design. The diagram below shows the almost finalized design.
I would like to mention the hardware being used at this design, as it could provide guidelines for other network engineers when it comes to transparent proxy for enterprise networks.
- PBR are Cisco Catalyst 6506-E with SUP720-B3, X6748 line cards
- Proxies are Bluecoat ProxySG x5,
- Packetshapers are Bluecoat 0 x3
- Core layer Cisco Catalyst 6509 with SUP720-3B.
