Support for Video

Unanswered Question
Nov 13th, 2008


I am working on a design for my organization for streaming evening board meetings across the IP network to the community. Can anyone share what is the best practice for this need and what solutions does Cisco or (third-party) offer that will fit.

I have available fiber that I will use to route the video traffic from the board room to the core, I would like to use QoS at the core and firewall to prioritize traffic, but do not think that my core (cat4006) and firewall (PIX515) will support. What routers/switches at the access/core would be best and be scalable.

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

A better option for streaming video out to end users may be Cisco Digital Media System (DMS) with the Live Event Module. Here is a link to the product page:

To see what the portal page looks like just check out the Cisco News page. It is what they use for hosting thier videos.

Hope this helps.
