    Default OTT architecture


    I have a architectural question regarding wowza streaming engine. In an OTT scenario, which is better:
    - use multiple wowza servers for ingesting/trascoding input streams which also act as streamer/origin or
    - use multiple wowza servers only for ingesting/trascoding input streams and have a seperated wowza server to just act as origin/streamer ?

    I would like to build a technical solution for OTT using Wowza streaming engine.

    Server specification:
    2xE5-2620v3 (12 CPU cores)
    4xGe ports (possible addition of 10GBe interface)
    2xQuadro K5200 GPU
    3x300GB 10k SAS HDD

    Input: 40 SD channels, 2-3Mbps
    Output: 4x ABR profiles (320x240 430kbps, 640x360 700kbps, 640x360 1200kbps, 720x576 2000kbps)
    Audience: around 40k end customers, expected 10k concurrent sessions

    My assumptions:
    - Transcoding: around 3-4 such servers should be enough to transcode 40 SD channels into desired ABR profiles.
    - Regarding bandwidth: 10k users (hypotethical scenario, if all of them would use the highest profile 2000kbps, this means 20Gpbs of needed bandwidth)

    - Can I utilize 10GBe NIC in wowza streaming engine with my server specification?
    - Could I use each server that would to transcoding also to do streaming or would it be better to push streams into a seperated wowza origin server?
    - How much bandwidth output could I achieve with my server specification?
