"Traffic policing occurs when a flow of data is regulated so that cells (or frames or packets) that exceed a certain performance level are discarded or tagged. It may be desirable to supplement a traffic-policing policy with a traffic-shaping policy. Traffic shaping is used to smooth out a traffic flow and reduce cell clumping. This can result in a fairer allocation of resources and a reduced average delay time."
