Frame relay uses high quality, digital transmission facilities and advanced packet switching technology to provide a connection oriented high-speed service. Connection oriented simply means that data transmissions (frames or segments of end user data) sent through the frame relay network always follow the same pre-defined path with the data arriving in the order it was sent. This type of service allows for the transfer of variable length frames across a wide geographical area.
Syringa Networks’ Frame Relay Service combines the most flexible and efficient wide area network (WAN) technology platform layered on the Syringa SONET Network. Our transport methods are ideal for connecting remote offices without having to plan, build, or maintain your own network. Syringa Networks is the only alternative provider offering Frame Relay Service between the majority of southern Idaho’s cities and towns.
The switch implementation for frame relay at the port and Private Virtual Circuit (PVC) level provide for the Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities that map directly to ATM Class of Service. This allows Syringa Networks to offer the efficiencies of ATM Class of Service (CoS) [CBR, VBR-RT, VBR-NRT, UBR] on a Frame Relay port. The Frame port and PVC have both Transfer Prioritization settings to the ATM switch fabric as well as Emission Prioritization to the Frame link that allow for prioritization onto the frame link from the port.
This capability allows an end user to retain the Frame relay port while enjoying a high QoS that is not traditionally offered by other Frame Relay service providers.
