I have IPTV system deployed in the network, there are two options from the client side to join a channel "group" either using hardware "set box" or using software that the client can install in his PC.
The problem is that in the soft method the client can run "join" more than one channel âgroupâ in the same time, which result is a more consuming of the bandwidth on the WAN link to the clients in the remote sites.
My question is that is there any method to limit the concurrent number of the groups that the client can join in the same time "per switch port"?, I mean limit the number of concurrent sessions per client to one.
Please note the type of the edge switches is 3560
ip igmp max-groups X
