Understand that multicast can conserve bandwidth as a single stream of video can send to the multicast router and replicate from there (Layer 3 router).
My question is, base on my attached diagram (Fig 2), if there is an additional workstation on edge switch 1, will the multicast stream increases (from initial 1, to 2) as shown in the diagram with red arrow.
OR, its still a single stream from the distribution switch to edge switch, whereas the replication of stream is done on the edge switch to the receiver(workstation)?
The reason of me asking is that, my client is concern about the load(cpu, mem, bandwidth) on the equipments and would like us to identify the potential equipments that will have heavy load.
Please advise, Thanks
