we have a pilot OCS setup with two standard edition servers - one in the US and one in the UK.
There's an effective 20Mb WAN pipe between the two and we have < 20 pilot users and of those only ever 5-10 in concurrent usage.
So far everything is peachy and there's some serious love for the product amongst the participants.
The networking folk have been monitoring the traffic between desktops / servers etc and it seems that when a meeting is hosted on (for example) the UK server, all UK server homed users connect to the UK server and all US users connect individually to the UK server as well.
My question is: is there some way to have only the servers communicate over the WAN link and for them to then distribute the audio/video traffic locally amongst the users - wherever they may be?
Thanks for any help you can give.

Your idea sounds very nice but for the moment I don't know of a way to "control" this traffic flow.

It is not possible to have the pools bundle the audio/video over the WAN
I think they are looking into a later timeframe to solve this
