100 Mbps MPLS but service provider handing of gig fiber?

Unanswered Question

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

Even though you have a fiber coming into your remote location your service provider would have rate limited it appropriately in and out from his perspective to 100MB as per the BW sold to you.

So from your question there should be no need to implement any policing in or out on your router towards the service provider.
