This memo describes two rate adaptive shapers (RAS) that can be used in combination with the Three Color Markers (srTCM and trTCM) proposed in [Heinanen1]. These RAS improve the performance of TCP when a TCM is used at the ingress of a diffserv network by reducing the burstiness of the traffic and thus increasing the proportion of packets marked as green by the TCM. Simulation results showing the improved performance are briefly discussed in the appendix.
