Network Rate Limiting Policy

In order to protect customers from network storm conditions, broadcast and multicast suppression systems are in place on all customer interfaces.

Broadcast and multicast suppression thresholds on bandwidth policed customer VLANs are as follows;

Allowed rate:  10000000 bits/sec

Exceed burst rate:  26000 bits/sec

Violate burst rate:  32000 bits/sec

Traffic exceeding the violate burst rate will be dropped.

Aggregate broadcast and multicast suppression thresholds on all other customer VLANs are as follows;

Allowed rate:  200000000 bits/sec

Exceed burst rate:  50000 bits/sec

Traffic exceeding the exceed burst rate will be dropped.

Thresholds are subject to change
