Our service provider is providing 100 Mbps MPLS service to one of our remote sites that will accept the handoff via a gig fiber connection into our 3845 router using a GLC-SX-MM SMF tranciever. I'm assuming that I will have to shape the ingress traffic to 100 Mbps. Can anybody send me a link on CCO that explains how to do this? And am I correct that I will have to shape the ingress traffic? Thanks, John

If the handoff to you is physical gig, you shouln't need to do anything inbound. Outbound, however, you might consider shaping to 100 Mbps so you can see and better manage congestion. Especially important if your provider enforces 100 Mbps using a rate limiter or policer.

Thank you! Do you have any references or examples on CCO that you could point me to?
