I have a customer that is running a Cisco 2610 and using frame relay for their T-1.  They want to bring in a second T-1 and use multi frame relay to "bond" them.  Under the interface config options, MFR is not listed.  Does anyone know what feature pack I need to be able to get this option?

Cisco Feature Navigator says you need 12.3(26) at a minimum to run MFR.  Looks like if you have a 2610 "regular" you need an IP PLUS feature set but if you have a 2610XM, IP BASE should work.  If you are running the T train, 12.2(15)T16 should work.  Requirements for 12.3(26) are 64 RAM 16 Flash.  Can you post a "show version" from the router.

Definitely running an IOS that doesn't support it.  The problem is you only have 32MB of RAM and 8MB of Flash so you can't run 12.3(x) that supports MFR.  You will need to either upgrade the RAM and Flash or replace the router (unfortunately).

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.
Quality of Service (QoS) options are nearly endless when it comes to networks today. This article is merely one example of how it can be handled in a hub-n-spoke design using a 3-tier configuration.
