The Catalyst 3550-12T is capable of performing rate limiting via its support of the Cisco Committed Access Rate (CAR) functionality. Through CAR, bandwidth can be guaranteed in increments as low as 8K. Bandwidth can be allocated based on several criteria including MAC source address, MAC destination address, IP source address, IP destination address, and TCP/UDP port numbers. Bandwidth allocation is essential in network environments requiring service-level agreements or when it is necessary for the network manager to control the bandwidth given to certain users. In addition to CAR functionality, the Catalyst 3550-12T supports 128 aggregate or individual policers. This gives the network administrator very granular control of the LAN's bandwidth.
