Hi there!

Yes, Frame Relay works over serial connections.

We have a number of sites in the UK which are connected together via MPLS. Each of the sites links to the MPLS cloud via a 2 MB Frame Relay connection. We connect the routers to the NTE via a serial cable and serial WIC.

I'm not convinced E1 is the normal medium for frame relay.

Not sure about maximum frame relay speed; sorry.

Kind regards,
