WAN setup using frame relay

Main site have 8 departments and each department have 60 pc's,remaining sites each have 6 departments and in each department have 40 pc's and in the design of WAN connection you use frame relays and that is the 100% growng hosptals and clock speed is 64000 bits/sec and security must don't access the unautheraised users from out can I do this?thanks for any help!

real or fake

This sounds like a question from a book or something. Nobody uses 64k circuits. A slow cellphone internet connection will use more than 64k.

You need to reask what you really need to know. The sizing of the circuits and network is based on the traffic flow.

Frame relay is on its way out. The bandwidths requirements have grown so large that other technologies are more cost effective than messing frame relay to run fractional circuits.

Besides if you are in the US and need to meet HIPPA you need to hire some help fast. If you cannot design a simple network you will never manage to get one that works with encryption activated.

I haven't setup 64K links since 1994 or 1995.

This sounds like some exam question. And today's users would scream at such a low rate.

If this is a legitimate system you are setting up, be sure to give it to your competition and wait for the next RFQ to replace that outdated failure next year. They certainly won't do business with them again!

Thanks Bill and Bob for your timely reply, this is the project assigned to me from the college. I have checked with some of the Institutes to do my project, but they are asking more money to get this done. So, I need some help from you guys to do this project on my own. Or shall I pay them (Institutes) to get this done. Please suggest....

number of sites

There is no way to say, you did not specify the number of sites or how the data flows.

Even so you have 240 pcs at your remote site. I would not put a site in like this at less than 10m. It all depends where the servers and internet access is.

Although you could in theory use frame relay to do this there is no reason to. Almost everyone uses MPLS to provide any-any and point to multipoint networks.

It's a dead project.

No one would seriously suggest 64K frame relay today for 100+ users. It's a joke in today's world and you should distance yourself to avoid the black mark from being involved with such a system.

And yes, any company/consultant will ask for money to write a report or make a recommendation but with the meager 64k line across as many users is the sign you don't want to be marked as one that helped do this.
