need to make a layer 2 network over Frame relay with Cisco
Posted on 2001-06-11
Here is the situation. I have a customer with a bunch of connections. Some of the connections are ethernet over fiber. They all bridge together and we provide a layer 2 network between the customer's various sites.
We are now adding an additional few sites. But the new sites are going to connect with Frame relay.
I have 1 frame connection at my central site ( from which the fiber goes out) and 2 other sites that connect to the cloud. In addition, one of the 2 sites has a P2P T-1 going to a third site. Ideally I would like to continue to provide a layer 2 solution. I would have to guess I can use IP un-numbered on all my routers. But then how can I manage them? ideas?
I already have 3 2511s I can use and a 1600, so I think I am set on the hardware.
POP ------ Cloud ------ site 1
site 2 ---T1-- site 3
