Rate enforcement for downlink is done at the PGW (in case of UMTS it is done at the GGSN) as this is the first node of entry for the traffic to enter into the Telecom Network from external world.
Rate enforcement for uplink is done at the eNodeB as this is the first node of entry for the traffic to enter into the Mobile Network from UE.
Hope this helps.

For downlink packets , PCEF pick the packet checks the Type of Service or DSCP field from IP header and then send packet to the appropriate bearer to met QoS requirement in LTE network. I am not sure about uplink packets. I think PDCP layer at eNB perform Uplink date rate enforcement.

I understand the eNB enforces UE-AMBR(both UL and DL). I understand the DL rate can be measured by n/w side and enforced at n/w side.
Whatabout the UL data rate ? How do we tell UE , "not to exceed the UL rate".

Could some QOS experts help please ?

In specification, I found two categories of QoS rules i.e., Signaled and Derived QoS rules. At a high level what I know that signaled QoS rules are the rules which are generated at core network and sent to UE as part of PDU SESSION ESTABLISHMENT. But I want to know what is derived QoS and where it is generated and used ?
