Upstream Rate Limiting - is it possible on 7200 HSSI?

I am looking for a cheaper option to a dedicated network management box like packeteer or WiseWan 401.

I would like to know if Upstream rate limiting is possible on a 7200 router. I have no access on our ISP's router so I need to apply something on my side.

Any other solutions I may have overlooked/not found?

Re: Upstream Rate Limiting - is it possible on 7200 HSSI?

When you say upstream rate limiting, are you trying to rate limit certain types of traffic ?

There are a couple of things that you could do.

You can

a) Rate limit using CAR

b) use WFQ and set bandwidth constraints for certain types of traffic

You can find more details on these mechanisms here
