Chapter 16. Frame Relay Fragmentation

Recent years have seen the rapid emergence of voice technologies and the increasing trend of integrating voice onto data networks. Frame Relay Fragmentation has an important role in ensuring the quality of service (QoS) for real-time delay-sensitive traffic.

This chapter discusses Cisco's Frame Relay Fragmentation solutions. Generally, Fragmentation is a Link-Efficiency tool which helps to reduce the delay experienced by smaller packets when the smaller packets are transmitted together with larger packets over a slow-speed link.
