FR SVC for 7200-serial-7200

Hello,

is it possible to configure 2 7200 (7200-Serial-7200) for FR SVC ?

Whether a real FR Switch is mandatory between 7200s ?

Thanks in advance,

Kirill

Hi Kirill,

AFAIK you need to have a frame relay switch in the middle. If you do not have a real fream relay switch you can simulate one using cisco router.

"The Frame Relay switching enhancement feature currently does not support SVC switching functionalities. Presently, only PVC switching is supported."

Feature Navigator says the same - FR SVC Switching not yet supported :(

Thanks for help,

if you just want to connect two routers back to back without a frame relay network in the between (for example another IOS router configured as a FR switch) there are two ways -

1) disable LMI keepalive on the interface. This stops router from sending or expecting LMI traffic so the interface will stay up permanently.

router 1

interface serial X/Y

encapsulation frame-relay

no keepalive

...

router 2

interface serial X/Y

encapsulation frame-relay

no keepalive

...

2) use the following configuration on one router to configure it as a frame relay DCE so it interfaces directly to the other frame relay DTE device -

frame-relay switching

interface serial X/Y

encapsulation frame-relay

frame-relay intf-type dce

you would still use PVC's via the same DLCI to pass traffic between each router.

Refer here for full details on frame relay config commands -
