Cisco Router as Frame-Relay Switch cabling
Posted on 2006-06-05
I'm getting a small lab setup to get some practice with the use of Frame-relay as well as troubleshooting.
I have a cisco 2600 router configured to work as a frame relay switch. The router has two WIC T-1 CSU/DSU cards installed. I also have two samller Cisco 1602 routers which also each have a WIC T-1 CSU/DSU card installed.
My one question is the cabling to use to conenct the smaller units to the Frame-relay switch.
<1602A> ? <2600-Frame-Swicth> ? <1602B>
(S0/0) WIC CSU/DSU ------- WIC CSU/DSU (S0/0) | WIC CSU/DSU (S0/1) --------- WIC CSU/DSU (S0/0)
Should I be using a patch ethernet cables, standard rollover cabling or some other CAT5 cableing with a different pinout?
