Cisco ICND2 1.1: Frame Relay Connections

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.

Overview

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.

Target Audience

Anyone wishing to obtain the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification that validates the knowledge and skills required to successfully install, operate, and troubleshoot small to medium size enterprise branch network. Network administrators, network engineers, network managers, network designers, and project managers. Candidates who have completed the 640-822 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1) exam associated with the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician certification which is the first step in achieving the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification.
