Feature Information for Using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay


Using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay


Multilink PPP is a method used to reduce latency and jitter for real-time traffic. This module contains conceptual information and configuration tasks for using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay.

Module History

This module was first published on May 2, 2005, and last updated on May 2, 2005.

Feature Information for Using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

Prerequisites for Using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

Knowledge

Be familiar with the concepts in the "Reducing Latency and Jitter for Real-Time Traffic Using Multilink PPP" module.

Enable Queuing Mechanism

Multilink uses first-in first out (FIFO) queuing for queuing and interleaving packets. Other queuing mechanisms such as low latency queuing (LLQ), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and class-based weighted fair queuing (CBWFQ) can be used. If you want to use one of these alternative mechanisms, enable it before configuring Multilink.

Enable FRTS

Frame Relay Traffic Shaping (FRTS) must be enabled on the Frame Relay interface.

Restrictions for Using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

Number of Links per Multilink Bundle

Only one link per multilink bundle is supported.

VoIP Support

Only Voice over IP (VoIP) is supported; Voice over Frame Relay (VoFR) is not supported.

Information About Using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

To use Multilink PPP over Frame Relay, you should understand the following concepts:

Frame Relay Traffic Shaping and Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

MQC and Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

Multilink Group Interfaces

Frame Relay Traffic Shaping and Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

Before using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay, FRTS must be enabled.


Note On the Cisco 7200 and lower series of routers, the frame-relay traffic-shaping command is used to enable FRTS. On the Cisco 7500 and higher series of routers, the Modular Quality of Service (QoS) Command-Line Interface (CLI) (MQC) is used to enable FRTS. For more information about MQC, see the "MQC and Multilink PPP over Frame Relay" section.


FRTS is a Cisco traffic shaping mechanism. A traffic shaping mechanism allows you to regulate (that is, "shape") the packet flow on a network. When you shape traffic, you control the speed of traffic leaving an interface. This way, you can match the flow of the traffic to the speed of the interface and avoid bottlenecks on the network.

Cisco has long provided support for forward explicit congestion notification (FECN) for DECnet and OSI, and backward explicit congestion notification (BECN) for Systems Network Architecture (SNA) traffic using Logical Link Control, type 2 (LLC2) encapsulation via RFC 1490 and discard eligible (DE) bit support. FRTS builds upon this existing Frame Relay support with additional capabilities that improve the scalability and performance of a Frame Relay network, increasing the density of virtual circuits (VCs) and improving response time.

FRTS can eliminate bottlenecks in Frame Relay networks that have high-speed connections at the central site and low-speed connections at branch sites. You can configure rate enforcement—a peak rate configured to limit outbound traffic—to limit the rate at which data is sent on the VC at the central site.

MQC and Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

Before using Multilink PPP over Frame Relay, a policy map must be created. (See the "Prerequisites" section.) Policy maps are created using the Modular Quality of Service (QoS) Command-Line Interface (CLI) (MQC).

Virtual Template Interfaces

A virtual template interface is logical interface configured with generic configuration information for a specific purpose or configuration common to specific users, plus router-dependent information. The template takes the form of a list of Cisco IOS interface commands that are applied to virtual access interfaces, as needed.

Multilink Group Interfaces

A multilink group interface is a collection of interfaces bundled together in the multilink PPP configuration. With a multilink group interface, you can bundle interfaces into logical multilink groups.

How to Configure Multilink PPP over Frame Relay

This section contains the procedures for configuring Multilink PPP over Frame Relay.


Note While the first two procedures are listed as optional, you must choose one or the other according to the Cisco router you are using on your network.


Configuring Multilink PPP over Frame Relay on a Virtual Template Interface (optional; applies only if you are using the Cisco 7500 series router or the Cisco 7600 series router)

or

Configuring Multilink PPP over Frame Relay on a Multilink Group Interface (optional)

Associating the Virtual Template Interface with a Frame Relay PVC (required)

Verifying the Multilink PPP over Frame Relay Configuration (optional)

Configuring Multilink PPP over Frame Relay on a Virtual Template Interface


Note These steps apply if you are using the Cisco 7500 series router or the Cisco 7600 series router only. If you are using another series of Cisco router, do not complete these steps. Instead, advance to "Configuring Multilink PPP over Frame Relay on a Multilink Group Interface" section.


Prerequisites

Before proceeding with this task, you must create a policy map. The policy map contains the configuration parameters used to apply a specific QoS features such as distributed LLQ (dLLQ) to the network traffic. To create a policy map and configure the appropriate QoS feature, use the MQC. See the "MQC and Multilink PPP over Frame Relay" section.
