    Default Wowza 3.6 & 5000 Viewers

    Hi,
    We have 8Gbps connection and ensure live streaming for 5000 viewers. My question is Wowza 3.6 can do this?

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Wowza does not have a hard limit to the number of connections it can receive.
    Generally the limitation for our clients is their bandwidth.

    What bitrate is the stream?
    How many steams do you have?
    Is 5000 the maximum number of viewers at any one time?
    What hardware do you have?

    Hi,
    Are you sure your network connection is 8 Gbps?

    The stream bitrate x the number of concurrent clients means you will be streaming 4 Gbps.
    0.8 Mbps x 5000 clients = 4000 Mbps which is 4 Gbps.

    You will likely need more than 8 GB RAM, to handle 5000 concurrent connections I recommend 16 GB RAM and a 8 core with hyper-threading or 16 core processor for supporting the number of clients you're going to have.

    hi there i also need some advice on speed of line as it confuses me

    i currently have 100 meg download with 5 meg per second upload bandwidth

    my mine is 0.9 mbps x 120 clients = 108 mbps =

    would i need a fibre optic line and if so what upload speed is needed in mbps? i currently have copper and imagine the contention ratios are not so good

    I have one question. Wowza media server 3.6 has Dynamic Load balancer solution and I need download LoadBalancer_2.0.zip and go forward README.html to start loadbalancing between two my Wowza media server?
