Well at least with frame relay the committed data rate is automatically
available to the router, its passed in the LMI packets. Eg cisco shows

router#sh fr map
Serial0.16 (up): point-to-point dlci, dlci 16(0x10,0x400), broadcast, BW = 128000
status defined, active

The BW parameter is reported back to the cisco by the frame switch.
