© 2002Objectives At the end of this workshop you will be able to: Define how Frame Relay defers from other communication technology Describe the features & benefits of Frame Relay technology Explain the Quality of Service mechanism built-in to Frame Relay technology Discuss the Service Level Agreement Parameters and Measurements related to Frame Relay
© 2002 What is not Frame Relay ? Frame Relay is not a networking protocol ! Frame Relay Is an Interface Protocol used in wide area networking Frame Relay User - Network Interface (UNI) Frame Relay Network - Network Interface (NNI)
© 2002 Frame Relay Interfaces CPE Frame Relay Network FR-UNI Frame Relay Network FR-NNI UNI – Between Customer and Operator NNI – Between two Operators
© 2002 Leased Line based Network Multiple Interfaces, DSU/CSUs and Links Router
© 2002 Leased Line based Network Advantages Simple Totally Managed by the Customer organization The links are ‘private’ to the organization Considered to be secure Disadvantages Not optimum in bandwidth utilization High number of links & physical ports required. Hence expensive to the customer Confined to LAN traffic (IP/IPX) Does not provide extensive QoS features

© 2002 Need for Congestion Management Input buffer Output buffer Subscriber Frame Handler Switch Node
© 2002 Congestion Management No congestion Mild congestion Severe congestion Throughput Delay Offered Load Throughput or Delay ITU Recommendation I.370 defines the frame relay congestion
© 2002 Congestion Control Techniques Discard Strategy Providing guidance to the network regarding which frames to discard; by way of CIR and DE bit. Congestion Avoidance Providing guidance to the end systems about the congestion in the network; by way of FECN, BECN and CLLM. This is called explicit control. Congestion Recovery End system infers congestion from frame loss; by way of higher level protocol function. This is called implicit control.
© 2002 FECN / BECN Frame Relay Network User data FECN=0 / BECN=0 User data FECN=1 / BECN=0 User data FECN=0 / BECN=0 User data FECN=0 / BECN=1 Client Server Congestion Congestion in the direction of Server The end stations (or Transport protocol such as TCP) shall take care of FECN/BECN to avoid congestion
© 2002 CLLM Message Consolidated Link Layer Management message Is a variation of BECN Used when no reverse traffic is available Carries congestion information of multiple virtual circuits
© 2002 Implicit Control When a higher layer protocol detects frame discards, it can adapt rate control such as using sliding window technique. This function is independent of Frame Relay technology and usually handled by transport layer protocol like TCP.
© 2002 Service Parameter Definition CIR - T c - B c - B e - Committed Information Rate: The guaranteed throughput provided by the network for the user traffic under normal operation Committed Burst Size: The maximum amount of data the network agrees to transfer, under normal conditions, over the measurement interval of T c Excess Burst Size: The maximum amount of data in excess of B c the network will attempt to transfer, over a period of T c TcTc # of Bits Transmitted Time BcBc B c + B e CIR Access Rate Committed Rate Measurement Interval or Bandwidth Interval
© 2002 Example Service Parameters Access Rate = 2.048 Mbps T c = 1.125 s CIR = 128 kbps Permits a burst rate B c = 144 kbps These parameters are defined per virtual circuit Though the CIR is 128 kbps, user data is fed in to the network at 2.048 Mbps resulting in low latency; 15 times faster in this example. A single physical link can carry several virtual circuits and the service parameters are configured according to the: Type of traffic, viz. real-time, transaction, database backup & replication, etc. Bandwidth required

© 2002 Discard Eligible (DE) bit DE=0: The frame is guaranteed to be delivered. DE=1: The frame delivered if possible The DE bit is used to mark a frame as Discard Eligible at the ingress port of the Frame Relay switch first Frame Relay switch if the input data rate exceed the committed burst rate Frame Relay Network CPE FR Switch FR Switch DE=1 CPE Ingress port Egress Port
