Some of the video streams are up around 8 Mbit/s.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. Its the Ethernet data that  
we were testing limits on. You're correct in pointing out that you  
can push heaps of video traffic down the ISG.

TransACT imposed a two-stream limit on the ISG a couple of years ago  
in the interests of limiting access network bandwidth contention.  
Prior to that I had also seen towards half a dozen streams through  
the ISG.
