detecting and limiting bandwidth

Asking for a friend.
We want to able to monitor and limit the bandwidth in and out of an Apple TV. Unfortunately the switch that we have (Netgear 10g XS-728T) doesn't allow QoS to that level (if that's even the right thing to do).
Wondering what sort of Systems wizardry exists in the universe to do this. Some sort of hardware device? Pass through on a PC with some sort of limiting software?
Any help appreciated. My friend thanks you.stein

@Michael I just took a look online for this particular switch and it says it supports port based rate limiting for the switch you mentioned. Have they taken a look at this feature already built in?

https://www.netgear.com/business/products/switches/smart/10g-smart-switch.aspx#tab-featuresPort-based rate limiting: Egress only (XS708T/XS712Tv2/XS716T) Ingress and egress (XS728T/XS748T)

I will recommend taking the time to learn the might Mikrotik RouterOS

You can get a tiny box for $100 bucks, they even have cloud lics (level 6 unlimited hotspot users $230).

I like this link as it shows the CLI way, but their UI Winbox is as capible.

Lots of info out there if you choose this route(r).

You typically would do this via your firewall, and or wifi/router.
What is serving internet to this device? You could probably just get a TPLink or Asus Router and just use it between your NetGear and your apple TV to specifically limit the bandwidth and monitor it.

Here are some examples of how to do so with these routers
https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1013333/http://www.tp-link.com/us/faq-557.html

If you really want to go nuts..get a fortinet 60D or something like that..
