Riverbed quoting

New to world of network acceleration and have few questions about it, We are trying to include Riverbed Steelhead devices for our WAN network and have a couple of questions:

1. Except the Riverbed model, OS release and the license, do we need to quote anything else in terms of cards or cables?
2. I understand that there are CX255, CX570, CX770 series of the devices, is that any table or rule of thumb that a given model is suited for certain WAN Bandwidth?

Thanks in advance;

Thanks for sharing the chart, it talks of the QoS BW and QoS settings .. are the QoS markings done on the riverbed devices or the edge WAN routers? Please shine some light on it.
