Frame Relay

Frame Relay is used for large-scale applications requiring accessing the Internet and interconnecting Local-area Networks (LANs). It is also used to connect LANs to Wide-area Networks (WANs). Frame Relay's data rates range from 56 Kbps to 45 Mbps, giving a wide range of flexible options to choose from for unique business needs. It is an "always on" service.

If the LAN Internet usage varies significantly throughout the day, and has bursty data, Frame Relay may be the best solution. With Frame Relay Internet access, Internet connectivity can be maximized at key times throughout the day by "bursting" up to the full limit of the transport chosen. A burst is a specific amount of data sent or received in one intermittent operation. Bursty data uses bandwidth only sporadically. It is sent intermittently and does not use the total bandwidth of a circuit 100 percent of the time.
