The 2521 has a Token Ring and ISDN interfaces which probably will not do you much good. It has 2 regular serial interfaces and 2 sync/async interfaces which are useful. You certainly should be able to configure this as a Frame Relay switch.

I am not sure that I can say that I have done this with a 2521, but many times I have configured routers in the 2500 series with 2 serial interfaces as a Frame Relay switch. They work quite nice for this.

Good luck with it.
