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.

The following link will give you a good guide on configuring frame-relay switching.

In my lab I use a 4500-m-ch as my frame switch. It is good in the way that you can load the NP slots with 4T's allowing you to create a large cloud.
