Milestone Corporate (~100 Homes) Bandwidth Question

I have an interesting client that we’re trying to sell Milestone XProtect Corporate on. It’s an HOA community consisting of roughly 100 single family homes that originally wanted cameras mounted on street lighting fixtures but was denied by the City due to liability. The community has agreed that they are willing to share their houses to mount the cameras/utilize their private WiFi.

I was thinking to get the camera port forwarded, and send the stream to a Milestone XProtect Corporate server located inside a datacenter. The issue I am dealing with right now is that they want the 100 or so homes to have access to the video feeds so they can browse at any time.

How can we accomplish this over the WAN? I am not too familiar with Multicast, and I don’t think it would be possibly to do that over the WAN. Do we have any options?
