Frame Relay Migration to MPLS
Frame Relay is a standardized wide area network technology that specifies the physical and logical link layers of digital telecommunications channels using a packet switching methodology.
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mechanism in high-performance telecommunications networks that directs data from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, avoiding complex lookups in a routing table.
Frame Relay aimed to make more efficient use of existing physical resources as clients were unlikely to be utilizing a data service 100 percent of the time. In more recent years, Frame Relay has acquired a bad reputation in some markets because of excessive bandwidth overbooking by these telcos. Telcos often sell Frame Relay to businesses looking for a cheaper alternative to dedicated lines; its use in different geographic areas depended greatly on governmental and telecommunication companies' policies. Many customers are likely to migrate from Frame Relay to MPLS over IP or Ethernet within the next two years, which in many cases will reduce costs and improve manageability and performance of their wide area networks.
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) enables Enterprises and Service Providers to build next-generation intelligent networks that deliver a wide variety of advanced, value-added services over a single infrastructure. This economical solution can be integrated seamlessly over any existing infrastructure, such as IP, Frame Relay, ATM, or Ethernet. Subscribers with differing access links can be aggregated on an MPLS edge without changing their current environments, as MPLS is independent of access technologies. Integration of MPLS application components, including Layer 3 VPNs, Layer 2 VPNs, Traffic Engineering, QoS, GMPLS, and IPV6 enable the development of highly efficient,…...

Migration

...1. Introduction More than 100,000 years ago the first modern humans left Africa and began to colonize the world. Since then human history is also a history of migration. Migration has always been a strong impetus towards human development, these days however migration is often seen as problem or threat. Migration is defined as the permanent change of residence of a person or group. It is a natural social phenomenon. Humans have colonized the entire world and penetrated its remotest areas. Migration is taking place within very different contexts: f.e. military conquest, refugees, expulsion or enslavement. But migrants have also traveled in search of economic opportunities, new settlement areas or trade routes. Currently approximately 216,000,000 people are living away from their place of birth. This number equals about 3% of the world population. Analyzing the reasons for migration one distinguishes between push and pull factors - often both appear together. Push factors are circumstances in the country of origin that lead people to emigrate, for example poverty, war or environmental disasters. Pull factors are conditions in the destination country that make immigration attractive such as economic opportunity and political freedom. Overall trends By far the most immigrants live in the United States followed by Russia and Germany. The main countries of origin are Mexico, India, China and Russia. In proportion to the population Persian Gulf countries host the largest......

...medium-sized business that will need to consider WAN technology using Frame relay technology within the company for the future expansion to other towns and cities. The Frame relay analysis will include the operation of frame relay, what equipment is needed, what switching technologies are employed by frame relay and how frame relay is actually brought into the business premises. Frame Relay in a WAN Frame Relay Frame Relay is one of the most common WAN protocols. This high performance protocol operates at the Physical and Data Link layers of the OSI, performing any type of serial interface. This technology was developed at an attempt to resolve some of the communication problems that the other protocols would not. There was an increased need for higher speeds, an increased need for larger bandwidth efficiency, an increase in intelligent network devices that lower protocol processing, and the need to connect LANs and WANs. The Frame relay evolved passed the X.25 as a less careful, but less burdensome protocol designed to transmit packets across a network. (Horton, 2010) Frame relay is known all around the world in many different networks. There are many terms that describe and refer to Frame relay and Wide Area Networking in telecommunications. These terms are also noted when referring to Local Area Networking as well. The table below describes these terms.

From examining existing congestion management efforts to up and coming possible solutions there are a multiplicity of efforts intent on solving network congestion issues. These efforts include work by independent research groups as well standards groups like the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and IEEE (802.1Qau - Congestion Notification). Congestion is defined as the condition in which demand exceeds available network resources (i.e., bandwidth or buffer space) for a sustained period of time. Congestion control deals with the resource allocation and traffic management mechanisms that avoid or recover from conditions causing congestive situations. (McDysan, Spohn (1999). The methods for congestion control in frame relay involve congestion management and avoidance. Congestion management attempts to make sure the network never experiences congestion. One method of management attempts to avoid congestion entirely. This involves network designers allocating proper......

Relays

...What are relays? Before, I talk about any particular relay – I think it is very important to clarify what exactly relays are? As per my understanding, relay is basically a type of electromechanical switch It has electromagnet and several other components in it. Relays works on electromagnetic principles. How relays work (theory) A relay basically has two parts (circuits). One part (circuit) is the actual switch, which basically acts as a control of the current to electromagnetic and the relay itself is controlled by electromagnet. A relay is basically an incomplete circuit when it is turned off. It has arm which we call "armature" which completes the circuit if and only if the electromagnet is present (electromagnet is produced if we allow the current using the first circuit thus creating an electromagnetic..). So, if we turn on the first part of the circuit which allows the current to flow and consequently, electromagnet is produced in the circuit which produces a magnetic field around it - This electromagnet attracts the armature coil towards itself thus completing the circuit. Thus, the circuit is now completed and current flows through the entire circuit. Of course, if we want to simply stop the circuit at any time, we can simply switch off the first part of the circuit which means no current in the first part of the circuit and as such the electromagnet is no longer magnetic and thus the armature coil goes back to its initial position and circuit is now......

Frame-Relay

...Professor Jeffrey Robinson August 20, 2013 Abstract In this discussion we look at some of the history around frame-relay. We then look at some of the equipment necessary to create the frame relay connections, as well as how the connections work both logically and physically. Some limiting factors are discussed as well as committed information rates, burst rates, an error handling. Some of the positive aspects of frame-relay are identified along with some options for the future of WAN technologies. Frame-Relay Operating at the physical and datalink layers of the OSI model, frame relay is a high-performing WAN protocol. It was originally designed for use with ISDN integrated services digital network interfacing. It has evolved into being used on multiple types of network interfaces. In 1984 the initial proposal for frame-relay standardization was presented to the CCITT Consultative Committee on international telephone and telegraph. Because interoperability standards were lacking, frame-relay did not fully take off until the 1990s. In 1990 StrataCom, Northern Telecom, Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), and Cisco created a consortium that focused on the technical development of frame-relay technology. While the CCITT was already discussing frame-relay, the consortium established specifications that while still conforming to the frame-relay protocol, enhanced the protocol with additional features to accommodate more complex......

Mpls-Vpn

...A report on MPLS-VPN VIT Submitted By Sameer Narula FMG19C 191169 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mechanism in high-performance telecommunications networks which directs and carries data from one network node to the next. MPLS makes it easy to create "virtual links" between distant nodes. It can encapsulate packets of various network protocols. MPLS is a highly scalable, protocol agnostic, data-carrying mechanism. In an MPLS network, data packets are assigned labels. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself. This allows one to create end-to-end circuits across any type of transport medium, using any protocol. The primary benefit is to eliminate dependence on a particular Data Link Layer technology, such as ATM, frame relay, SONET or Ethernet, and eliminate the need for multiple Layer 2 networks to satisfy different types of traffic. MPLS belongs to the family of packet-switched networks. Customer site Large customer site Customer Network (C-Network): the part of the network still under customer control Provider Network (P-Network): the Service Provider infrastructure used to provide VPN services Customer Site: a contiguous part of customer network (can encompass many physical locations) MPLS operates at an OSI Model layer that is generally considered to lie between traditional definitions of Layer 2 (Data Link Layer) and Layer 3 (Network Layer), and thus is often...

Frame Relay Migration to Mpls

...Gevork Darakhchyan NT 2640 Unit 10 assignment1 Frame relay migration to MPLS Frame relay | MPLS | Frame Relay is based on the PVC or Permanent Virtual Circuit. You access the network using a specialized piece of customer premises equipment called a FRAD or Frame Relay Access Device. Within the network frame routers are configured by the network operator to create your PVCs from a list of sources and destinations and your desired bandwidth or Committed Information Rate (CIR). | MPLS or Multi Protocol Label Switching is also a private network arrangement. It's designed to run on the newer IP based networks that are replacing traditional circuit switched or TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) networks. The multi-protocol aspect allows all sorts of traffic to be carried on the network simultaneously. What MPLS layers over the core IP network is a specialized label system. Each label specifies source and destination and quality of service. The labels work something like the virtual circuits of Frame Relay in that they identify where packets are coming from and where they are intended to go. | Benefits * Keeping cost of ownership and technology complexity low at point-of-sale and branch endpoints, ensuring fast service activation. * Deploy products to enable simultaneous delivery of private line, Frame Relay, and MPLS services during the transition phase to avoid service interruption. * Build MPLS-compatible traffic quality classification, performance, and......

...Assignment #2 – Migration It was a really rough time in Bosnia during the 1990s. The war between three countries was destroying everything and sustaining a lifestyle in these countries was close to impossible. Many families were sent to refugee camps or fled to other surrounding countries. Not all were this lucky as the Serbians were ripping families apart. Called the Bosnian genocide, over 8000 people had been killed just because they were Muslims. Every year on the anniversary of the genocide, more and more bodies are found and laid to rest. Because of the war, many families fled to the United States to chase the American dream, including my parents. I was born in Rijeka, Croatia, after my parents decided to leave Bosnia since not many job opportunities were available. After living there for about three years, our cousins who were already in America helped us travel to Iowa, where I currently live now. My family has been here for 16 years and we have achieved much more in life than we would have if we stayed in Croatia. Beginning in 1800, it was mainly the eastern side of the United States that was populated thanks to the first 13 colonies. From there, with every 50 years the population moved over towards the west and more states developed, continuing until all 50 states had been created. During the movement to the west, the population in the first 13 colonies grew and by 1930 New York had the highest population of all states. By 1990, which is when I......

Frame Relay and X.25

...between X.25 and Frame Relay. The biggest difference between Frame Relay and X.25 is that X.25 guarantees data integrity and network managed flow control at the cost of some network delays. Frame Relay switches packets end to end much faster, but there is no guarantee of data integrity at all. Frame Relay is cost effective, partly due to the fact that the network buffering requirements are carefully optimized. Compared to X.25, with its store and forward mechanism and full error correction, network buffering is minimal. Frame Relay is also much faster than X.25: the frames are switched to their destination with only a few byte time delay, as opposed to several hundred milliseconds delay on X.25. An evolution beyond the X.25 protocol, Frame Relay is a network interface standard based on statistical multiplexing. By combining the flexibility of X.25 packet protocol with the performance of private lines, Frame Relay Service can move data much more efficiently than the packet protocol. In fact, Frame Relay Service streamlines the processing steps associated with X.25 error detection/correction and routing procedures. Frame Relay technology takes advantage of highly accurate digital networks with their reduced line errors and intelligent network end point devices with their end-to-end error checking protocols. The reduced per packet processing time allows you to process more user data. Also, the upgrade to Frame Relay Service is simple and cost effective because Frame Relay......

...  EXECUTIVE SUMMARY MPLS, or Multiprotocol Label Switching, is a next generation, more intelligent nnetwork that will enable companies to expand their current infrastructures to do a wide variety of services. Since MPLS is independent of access technologies, it will allow subscribers to access differing access links without changing their current environment. MPLS takes the control of IP routing and combines it with layer 2 switching to give a seamless solution to the many needs of companies today (Semeria, 1999). The goal of MPLS was to standardize protocols that used label-swapping forwarding techniques to support unicast and multicast routing (Yuan, 2002). Many ISP networks today are built using an overlay model, in which IP’s topologies run independent of layer 2 switch topology, such as ATM and Frame Relay (Semeria, 1999). MPLS took advantage of the rapid advances in semiconductor components and focused on separating the routing and forwarding problems from each other; layer 2 switches provide high-speed connectivity, while IP routers, interconnected by a mesh of layer 2 circuits, provide intelligence to forward IP datagrams (Semeria, 1999). With these two topologies combined, you are able to get a fast, intelligent network. MPLS is used by many network operators today because it can support a diverse legacy system as well as modernize them for next-generation applications (Cisco, 2013). Because of its many uses, MPLS can be used to facilitate many different......
