Layer 2 multicast using IGMP V2 snooping

Hi Forum,

I hope you are doing great, the reason why I’m writing is to ask your assistance in regards with a question that I have.

We are working with some video surveillance equipment(Endura from Pelco), this equipment are all ip multicast for layer 2 networks, we know that a lot of your switches are compatible with IGMPV2 snooping, I want to design the best network possible for things to run smoothly I was wondering if you could help me decide the best type of switches for core(query) and edge (queries), I need switches that can hold around 250 multicast sessions at a time, also if you can direct me to layer 2 IGMPV2 snooping information and configuration manual I would really appreciate it.

Another thing that I want to ask  is to know if I can use an only layer 2 solution with the core and edge switches being Layer 2 or if it would be better to have the core switch as a layer 3 which would be a hybrid solution.

We are thinking of using a 3750 layer 2 as core and 2960 layer 2 as edge

I hope you have the time to answer my questions.

Have a great day

Bruno Martinez
