CloudFront's 1000 Mbps limit: How to test it?

I have set up Wowza as an HTTP caching origin for CloudFront as outlined in How to integrate your Wowza EC2 instance with CloudFront.

I’m interested in testing how many concurrent 1 Mbps connections CloudFront can handle. According to their documentation it should be 1000 equalling 1,000 megabits per second:

1000 simultaneous connections to a 1 Mbps stream == 1000 Mbps

Is there a way to simulate a large amount of HTTP connections?


There are some suggestions here.

but you wont be able to use the RTMP testing tool with cloudfront, the other suggestions made there may be viable though.
