...Course Project Author Note This assignment is being submitted on September 5, 2013, for N235/CET2629 Section 02 Cisco Networking Fundamentals and Routing course. Course Project Assuming that the router (R1) connecting the NOC to the outside world is configured with an IP address of 154.78.0.1 is directly linked to router (R2) with IP address 154.78.0.244 complete the following: Explain the steps required to configure router R1 and R2 to use Frame relay your explanation should include the commands used. Frame relay is fairly simple to configure. Remember that by default, Cisco uses High-level Data Link Control (HDLC) as a serial link encapsulation. This is a proprietary encapsulation and can only be used if you’re connecting two Cisco routers with a point-to-point link. Frame relay allows you to connect multiple vendors’ routers because of the frame relay standards created. The configuration of each router is very simple and looks something like this: R1 Router>enable Router#config t Router(config)#hostname R1 R1(config)# interface serial 0 R1(config-if)#ip address 154.78.0.1 255.255.0.0 R1(config-if)#no shutdown R1(config-if)#exit R1(config)#exit R1# R2 Router>enable Router#config t Router(config)#hostname R2 R2(config)#interface serial 0 R2(config-if)#ip address 154.78.0.244/255.255.0.0 R2(config-if)#no shutdown R2(config-if)#exit R2(config)#exit R2# The two routers can now communicate point to point.
