I think I'm having a pretty fundamental problem in calculating bandwidth math.
I work in streaming video and I often have clients asking me the famous question: "How many streams can I push at once?"
My response is invariably the same:
Let's say you have a 1,024 kilo-bit per second stream. It's unlikely, as that's an extremely high-quality HD stream. In any case, if you have a 100 mega-bit per second link, that means that by simple math, you should be able to push out 100 of these extremely high-quality streams concurrently, theoretically.
...to which I always receive a response like "Only 100 streams!?!?!"
I don't know how to reply. Is my math accurate? Clients in the wild often see much higher concurrent users than this with high-quality streams. Am I missing something in my math?
