how Cisco consider 1K=1000bytes or 1024?

When I configure Frame Relay switch, if the link is 64k, in general, it should be

clock rate 64000

so cisco consider 1k=1000bytes, right?

or it should be

clock rate 64*1024

Thanks

Re: how Cisco consider 1K=1000bytes or 1024?

64000 is 64K for configuring a Frame Relay switch. The difference between 1K = 1000 and 1K = 1024 is in how it is being used. In data storage, due to the way that data is referenced, it is 1024 because it has to be a multiple of two. For data transfer, you are measuring discrete pulses. Since you are measuring discrete pulses, you can use the standard metric value of 1000.
