Hello All,

Apologies to those already subbed to DEOS-L, but I thought others might
want to read - looks like potential bad press out there...

What is being done about the enormous bandwidth required to support
CU-SeeMe? There was a demonstration on a weekend during a break when
traffic was as low as it ever is here at MTU, and the one connection
almost filled our networks capacity. At least that was the explanation I
heard from the organizer. My impression, which of course could be
entirely inappropriate, was that it would be impossible to handle for
multiple sessions simultaneously.

Am I missing something here?
