Multiple Connections over Frame

I need some advice.

I am wanting to know if I can run multiple Frame Relay connections (of 128k each) through one pipe of 384k. I need these to be seperate connections for differnet clients and they would need to be secure.

Is this possible?

any help would be appreciated

Re: Multiple Connections over Frame

I am not sure what you want to accomplish. However, it sounds like a Cisco router (or another box like an Adtran Atlas 550) could act as a frame relay switch. Bring the frame circuit with the 3 connections (DLCI) into the frame switch. The DLCI's could then switched to their own tail circuit and be terminated on a different router. The only thing in common is the frame switch and the circuit from telco. Security in this scenario is absolute (except from you, of course).

Hope this helps;


Re: Multiple Connections over Frame

Correct me if I am wrong but what you are looking for is a straight forward hub and spoke topology. Traffic between clients could be kept separate from each other (don't let the hub router route between spoke DLCI's and/or don't let the spokes have frame maps to the other spokes).

See the link:

or with subinterfaces:

Hope it helps
