Is there a way to limit the available bandwith on a router to a certain amount of throughput but open it up automatically as needed? Lets say you have a 10Mbps pipe and you want to limit the throughput to 5Mbps on average but if needed it can open up to the full 10Mbps automatically for as long as needed and tehn throttle back. I know the first thing that jumps out at me is just to let the full 10Mbps rip at all times but we are trying to move a service provider funtion of a burstable service down to the CPE level. I'm probably not explainging it well. Please feel free to ask clarufying questions.
Thanks in advance. All replies rated
