I have 200Mbps of streaming video traffic coming into my command center. How do I split the load between routers?
The setup is like this:
fiber ---> router ---> switch ---> workstations
This specific project is for our company's IP CCTV system. We have deployed over 100++ cameras all over a building/campus and we have estimated each camera to take about 2Mbps of bandwidth each. They're all connected to a switch and that's entirely fine.
But coming into our command center, they have to be on a router since it'll get more than 200++ cameras next year (and I don't want to have too many hosts on one subnet). My plan was to have the 1st hundred on a 172.16.9.x block and the 2nd hundred on a 172.16.10.x block (all /24).
The servers I have are currently sized to match (about 5 dual 6-core Xeons) and I'd have about 19 workstations all streaming video from the 5 servers. (Servers pull video from the cameras).
But 200Mbps of constant traffic? I haven't dealt with this much traffic before. How the hell do I even break this up? I need to have one gateway to manage the routes.
