The coated electric wire will need to be strung tighter than rope or tape, so your corner supports must be good and secure. You would want that with any fence though. With coated wire, be sure to install it exactly as the manufacturer recommends with the appropriate fasteners and tensioners, otherwise the fence will stretch out of shape and could break.
Depth and thickness of your corner posts will depend upon how many you use and how you brace them. If you use three posts in an L shape braced, they don't need to be as thick. A single corner post with side braces like you have shown will need to be thicker and in deeper. Depth will depend on your soil. You will need to get them in deep enough to be solid. This means at least 3' in the ground. If you cement them in you won't have to go quite as deep.
