WAN Design with Frame Relay
David Horton CST-443 Abstract This paper gives a high-level overview of how to design a Wide Area Network (WAN) using Frame Relay technology. Aspects of the WAN design process are explored through the use of a fictitious manufacturing company called Zippy's Chips. The Zippy's WAN design covers the topics of weighing alternative technologies, setting up basic Frame Relay Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) connections, adding redundant links and scaling the network for future growth.
