I need to solve to a scenario. The remote sites are being monitored by IP cameras from head office on 2 Mbps link . the IT team has apparently no control over cameras so i need to rate limit the IP cameras traffic on branch router. The Video traffic is coming on dedicated seperate subinterface on LAN . How can i limit it to use a max of 128Kbps WAN link
Thanks for reza and marwan!!! Thats really helpful. The IP cameras resides att braches and braches are using 1811 router (with 8 port builtin switch) On 1811 VLANs are created, video vlan is seperated there.. Whynot i apply MQC or ratelimit on video VLAN. or would i need to deploy it WAN itnerface of 1811. Thanks
Its better to do it at the WAN router, as reza mentioned.. on routers you can have modular qos configurations applied which makes it easier to manage.. on switches you might find it tough to implement prioritization, policing, based on your switch model.. also as a best practice, you can mark packets (video/voice/data) at the edge, and have qos policing done on your exit point , which is the wan router.. i think you are on the right track restricting traffic on routers...
If it is going to be rate-limiting, then you can do it on the LAN interface, for the incoming traffic... but if you want to do class based policers, you can apply it on the outgoing interface, since that is the point you want to restrict the traffic...
I personally visit the customer premises and find out that instead of IP cameras they are using 16 plain camereas that are connected to a server with DVR cards. So essentially i will have to play with a single IP address rather than 16 IP addresses. I am not quite sure if 256 K is enough for 16 cameras (2 are rotating cameras).
The cameras portion comes under different dept and we do not have control over it so the only thing we can do is to configure our router to limit it.

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
