This equipment is a per-site cost if the current networking infrastructure 
at the site cannot support multicast. It doesn't replace any of the other 

With an agreeable network staff who already has the appropriate flavor of 
Cisco router, such a tunnel could likely be set up to existing equipment. 
However, with such a staff and equipment I suspect that proper multicast 
might be doable anyway.
