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
