bandwidth (Protocols RSVP)


Hierarchy Level


For certain logical interfaces (such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode [ATM], Permanent Virtual Circuit [PVC], or Frame Relay), you cannot determine the correct bandwidth from the hardware. This statement enables you to specify the actual available bandwidth.

This statement also enables you to specify the bandwidth for a bypass label switched path (LSP). If you have configured multiple bypasses, this statement is mandatory and is applied to all of the bypass LSPs.


The hardware raw bandwidth is used.


bps—Bandwidth in bits per second. You can specify this as an integer value. If you do so, count your zeros carefully, or you can use the abbreviations k (for a thousand), m (for a million), or g (for a billion [also called a thousand million]).

  • Range: Any positive integer

  • Default: 0 (no bandwidth is reserved)

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.

routing-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
