Description

Frame Relays enjoy worldwide popularity, with most major Service Providers around the globe offering Frame Relay as one of their core services. It has become an important technology for connecting data networks across North America, Europe, and Asia. To meet the needs of the audience, Cisco Frame Relay Solutions Guide provides a collection of solution strategies for IT professionals looking to build more versatile, reliable, and efficient Frame Relays. Part I begins by describing the basics of the technology, including the introduction of Cisco's Frame Relay implementation, followed by the configuration basics of Frame Relay on Cisco IOS. Part II, Cisco Frame Relay Solutions for Traffic Congestion and Management, tackles the configuration tasks for traffic shaping, router foresight, switching enhancements, SVC support, Frame Relay-to-ATM internetworking, PPP, and PVC bundles. Part III addresses the need for compression and fragmentation, providing solutions to common problems such as slow links, how to save bandwidth, when to use payload compression, and what to do when the network can not support the original size of a particular packet. Part IV introduces congestion management solutions, and part V discusses Congestion Avoidance and Signaling. Within each chapter, the book addresses commons problems, details the associated solution, including configuration and command examples, and each chapter ends with a detailed, real-world case study based on a tested Cisco solution.show more
