Re:Bandwidth allocation by Catalyst3560

With the 3560, you can perform strict policing outbound, but you cannot rate limit inbound, nor can you do any traffic shaping. In order to do bidirectional rate-limiting, you will need a router, such as an ASR. A 2900 or 3900 may also work, but I have not looked into their QoS capabilities in depth.
