As first and very basic option, you may use Generic Traffic Shaping to implement FRTS. This is a common technique, not unique to Frame-Relay, with the following properties:

- Configured by using traffic-shape interface command
- As with standard GTS, internal shaper queue is basic WFQ
- Configured per inteface/subinteface (no PVC granularity)
- GTS may adapt to BECNs & reflect FECNs (BECN received at any interface/subinteface PVC will cause shaper rate to throttle back to minCIR)
- FECN reflection activates sending BECNs in responce to incoming FECN frames. Note, that FECN/BECN responce requires provider to mark frames with FECN/BECN bits
- You can configure Fancy-Queueing (WFQ/PQ/CQ) at physical interface level with GTS.


! Physical Interface, fancy-queueing may apply here

interface Serial 0/0/0:0
 no ip address
 encapsulation frame-relay

! Subinterface, apply GTS here

interface Serial0/0/0:0.1 point-to-point
 ip address
 ! Shaping rate
 traffic-shape rate 512000
 ! "MinCIR", adapt to BECNs
 traffic-shape adaptive 256000
 ! Reflect FECNs as BECNs
 traffic-shape fecn-adapt
 frame-relay interface-dlci 112

About Petr Lapukhov, 4xCCIE/CCDE:

Petr Lapukhov's career in IT begain in 1988 with a focus on computer programming, and progressed into networking with his first exposure to Novell NetWare in 1991. Initially involved with Kazan State University's campus network support and UNIX system administration, he went through the path of becoming a networking consultant, taking part in many network deployment projects. Petr currently has over 12 years of experience working in the Cisco networking field, and is the only person in the world to have obtained four CCIEs in under two years, passing each on his first attempt. Petr is an exceptional case in that he has been working with all of the technologies covered in his four CCIE tracks (R&S, Security, SP, and Voice) on a daily basis for many years. When not actively teaching classes, developing self-paced products, studying for the CCDE Practical & the CCIE Storage Lab Exam, and completing his PhD in Applied Mathematics.
