Traffic Shaping Devices

I'm looking for device(s) that can support traffic shaping at or above 1000Mbps. I have few Cisco switches and Routers that do support traffic shaping but at lower speeds.

Example:
Cisco 3825 Router - TS up to 155Mbps
Cisco 2821 Router - TS up to 155Mbps
Catalyst 3750 doesn't seem to support traffic shaping
Catalyst 4900M - TS up to 10Gbps

I have to be conservative on the budget side.
It does not have to be a Cisco device, but it has to go up to 1Gbps.

Any help is appreciated.

there is a software which you can install on any hardware. It is called Mikrotik. it may help your traffic shaping in any speed. It will depends on your CPU and RAM quality.

I'd rather use a more traditional approch (overpay for a brand name product), but this is definetly an intresting idea. Do you know how much is the license?

Thank you.

i think 45$ just software. it is changing according to country. But price shouldn't you dissapointed. System is really stable and powerful. I am using today more than 300 points connection for this system. The routerOS is so powerful on QoS and traffic shaping. You may create tee based policy on it. you can apply diiferent shape in different conditions.

I see, It sounds like a good product. Perhaps some day I can find some time to play with the demo version adn get familiar with the CLI. Thank you equalizer.

For this project however, I would prefere a more conventional piece of hardware.

Thank you.

equalizer, I installed the router (v4) but I'm not sure if I understand the different queues.

How would I setup a queue that would do traffic shaping on two interfaces (in and out) to limit the incomming and outgoing traffic to 300Mbps?

Thank you.

you can find some information below link. there are different algoritms for different shaping. PCQ is better for end user shaping. You may create multi scenario combination with different algorithms.

PS : you may not see big number in combox in winbox interface. if you will write 10M with hand, system will understand it.
