Product Description

From the Back Cover

A complete guide to using frame relay technology to deliver high-speed network services Frame Relay for High-Speed Networks Current networking demands of international networks, voice alternatives, virtual private networks, and network quality of service have generated renewed interest in frame relay. The traditional frame relay roles in SNA and LAN router connectivity remain undiminished, but frame relay has proven remarkably well-suited for a number of high speed networking situations. However, books on frame relay have been mainly restricted to exploring ITU-T plans for an ISDN-based frame relay infrastructure that has never appeared. This is the first volume to detail how real-world Frame Relay Forum networks are currently implemented. Walter Goralski's lucid style makes complex discussions on frame relay for voice, IP, ATM, and other uses easy to understand for the novice or expert. Frame Relay for High-Speed Networks:*Describes Frame Relay Forum frame relay in detail*Examines ITU-T standard frame relay*Explains how IP and frame relay can work together*Tells you how to use frame relay for voice and video to save money*Discusses using ATM quality of service in frame relay networks*Describes proven techniques for integrating frame technologies with your current systems

Format: Hardcover
Well, this book was write to help you to understand what you can do using Frame Relay Networks, but I think that he needs some "upgrade", that can be made over ATM Backbones using Frame Relay as access, and to mention how some networks, today, uses this technology. I mean, it's not easy to find some answer for some question, like "How can we use a Frame Relay network, transporting IP packets, and delivery this information using ATM interfaces, by ATM-FR Interworking ?". Of course that's my sugestion, but I found very good informations inside it. I recommends.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers all aspects of today's frame relay: history, functionality, deployment, management, internetworking with TCP/IP, ATM, SNA, voice and other frame relay networks and regulatory constraints. It starts with an excellent introduction that will get most people up to speed. All topics are covered in a knowledgeable, readable and sometimes amusing style.

Subjects of the book are organized very good and it mentions the technologies with an order. It is separated from the other related books that the author knows frame relay and he presents his kwowledge better. I srongthly recommend to read that book to whom want to learn the basics of frame relay and other technologies.
