You mean inside the router itself?

The short answer is YES. But you have to be more specific. First, answer to yourself, what do you want?

* Limit the bandwidth for particular applications?
* Limit bandwidth for specific users?
* Get some traffic higher priority than other traffic?
* Is it inbound traffic or outbound?
* Should it be just a local limitation or it should be through your network?
* If it's Internet traffic, does your provider supports this limitations/prioritization?
* What amount of traffic you are talking about?
* What if traffic comes at higher rate than you expect, is it OK to drop the exceeding traffic?
... etc.

For basic information, look for "QoS" term - traffic management is part of the "Quality of Service" suite. Look at the Cisco website for "QoS" to get all information required. Or hire consultant. :-)

Good luck,
