Cisco ICND2 1.1: Frame Relay Connections
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Frame Relay is a high-performance WAN protocol that operates at the physical and data link layers of the OSI reference model. It was standardized by the ITU-T. Frame Relay was one of the most extensively used WAN protocols, primarily because it was inexpensive compared to dedicated lines. In addition, configuring user equipment in a Frame Relay network is very simple. This course describes Frame Relay operation, configuration, and troubleshooting.
A Frame Relay network offers a few additional benefits that a leased-line implementation does not offer. But with these benefits comes a bit more complexity. The addition of concepts such as Non-broadcast Multiple Access (NBMA), Local Management Interface (LMI), Inverse Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), and Frame Relay maps require that an administrator has a fundamental knowledge of these concepts to better troubleshoot connectivity issues that may arise. This course describes the basic steps that are used to troubleshoot a Frame Relay WAN. How to identify and resolve the most common Frame Relay connectivity issues are also covered.
