Traffic Shaping on FR PVCs

I have a 576K Access at a remote site, with 4 PVCs (CIR's are 3x128K and 1x64K). All the 128K PVCs are shaped so they won't exceed 256K (bc=16000, be=16000). The carrier is saying all PVCs should be permitted to burst to the remote Access speed, ie bc=16000, be=56000. Is this correct? Won't this cause congestion at the remote site when all PVCs are busy?.

The Access speed at other end of these PVCs is 1920K, 1920K, 1280K and 256K.


Re: Traffic Shaping on FR PVCs

It may be desirable in some situations I supopse....having said that.....

The PVC would not burst above the access rate of your locally connected interface anyway. So if you have a a t1, it will never burst above that of regardless of what the remote AR is. So in general I would say no, it is not correct.

My understanding is that be is normally set to (local access rate, not remote) be = ar - cir
