My suggestion is to
enable the full DS3 and have each router traffic-shape to 6M on the
neighboring interfaces. Rate-limit on the input of your router to
disallow the customer from sending you more than the limit. Remember
that for the most part rate-limiting polices, where traffic shaping performs
more buffering and shaping. Thatís why you should use the combo of a
shape on the sender side and a police on your side to

Bandwidth Control Question
A customer of ours in the next
building would like 6M of Internet bandwidth from us, so we would wire a DS3
between the two buildings for connectivity.
The question is: how to we control
the amount of bandwidth that we give them? Could we use rate limiting to
contain the bandwdith to 6M, our would we need to get external IDSU's to do
Note: we have a Cisco 7206VXR
router on our end. The customer has a Cisco 7513.
