I feel you need to provide more clarity on how the the link is getting terminated and how the lan is segmented in the remote location.

whats the ip addressing scheme beind used at present and how many users are there in the LAN.

I assume that your IP range at the remote office is a dedicated range only used by you. In this case a simple solution would be to define CAR at the WAN interface.

Configure an ACL with your IP addresses at the remote site:

"access-list 1"

Apply rate-limiting at the WAN interface:

"rate-limit output access-group 1 3000000 8000 8000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop"

You should make sure the other party does limit their traffic also ;-).

If the situation is more complex, other solutions my be necessary.
