Frame Relay: Technology and Practice is the most comprehensive, current, and practical handbook available for understanding and deploying frame relay. Gathering information from many different sources, this book provides essential facts and techniques in one convenient volume. It explains frame relay technology in understandable terms, interprets frame relay standards, and discusses vital deployment issues. This book offers an overview of the benefits and limitations of frame relay and how it compares to other networking technologies. It contains a thorough description of frame relay technology, including architecture, interfaces, virtual circuits, and traffic management. In addition, the book describes the differences between the various carrier implementations and discusses real-world issues in design and management of frame relay networks, pricing, and procurement. The book also features several exercises, as well as numerous useful diagrams.
You will find coverage of the most current frame relay topics, including: *Voice over frame relay (VoFR) *Data-oriented virtual private networks (IP VPNs) *Frame relay-to-ATM integration *Quality of service (QoS) offerings from carriers and vendors *Switched virtual circuits (SVCs) *Virtual circuit network design *Recovery from virtual circuit failures *Capacity allocation and congestion management *Non-CIR versus flow-controlled approaches to frame relay networks Especially useful for network managers considering migrating to frame relay or those expanding their use of public frame relay services, this book will help you make well-informed decisions about purchasing, designing, and deploying frame relay technology for high-speed, reliable, and cost-effective networks. 0201485249B04062001
