Cisco Router Upgrade Configuration Question - Bridge Mode

I am trying to upgrade a client from frame relay to a full T1. I believe I have the remote side office figured out. I just need to change the interface to T1

However, on the home office side, they have the frame relay interface bridged with a second remote office. Do I need to create a second interface on the home office router, or can I just change the subinterface to be a T1?

If you need to maintain the frame-relay connection to the second remote office, you'll need a separate interface for the T1 on the home office side.

Is there such a thing as 1.54 mb frame relay? It appears the second remote office has that as a set-up. I assume I  can just change the remote config from using only 12 channels to the full 24 channels?

1.54mb is a full (24 channel) T1. If you use only 12 channels, the frame link will only be 768k. And just reducing the number of channels on the remote side isn't enough. You'll need to use reconfigure the home office too. And if your goal is to not need another interface for the first remote site, you'll only realize 768k to each remote site.

I am increasing the number of channels from 12 to 24 in the remote site. Hope I am making sense.

Sorry. It's confusing when talking about 2  remote sites. It's hard to know which one you're talking about. If the remote site that you're upgrading is currently at 12 channels, then yes, all you'll need to do (there) is change the number of channels in your config.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
