ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. frame relay market. Frame relay continues to meet the majority of enterprise data networking requirements with high levels of reliability that businesses know and trust. There's no doubt that some enterprises are retiring their frame networks and installing some flavor of IP-VPN. In truth, the attractiveness of any of the IP-VPN types depends on the customer's goals, and what the customer is willing to trade off. Smaller companies that can't afford frame relay bandwidth increases, for example, might turn to public Internet-based VPNs. MFR is a Layer 2 inverse multiplexing capability that aggregates the bandwidth of multiple physical-layer links while presenting a single high-speed frame relay logical user-to-network interface (UNI). The UNI supports more bandwidth than is available from a single physical interface. While enterprises will inevitably turn to new network services to support new kinds of applications or to decrease costs, they might find, at least in the short term, that they give something up-be it reliability or security or cost.
