Each DLC has an identifying number called a data link connection identifier (DLCI).
This new ServicePoint Integration Pack delivers specific color-coded icons reflecting device and interface errors along with the ability to monitor individual Data Link Connection Identifier (DCLI) addresses," said Kevin Hart, marketing manager for ADC.
IPM allows customers to monitor traffic at critical network points, evaluate frame relay congestion, and report network availability and throughput based on DLCIs (data link connection identifiers - the electronic fingerprint of the data communications channel).
These include network equipment alarms, frame count, byte count, traffic levels, input and output errors, physical addressing, PVC designations, data link connection identifier addressing, interface speeds, a graphical representation of WAN topology, as well as other LAN/WAN network information.
On Frame Relay links, the NetScout Probe automatically discovers Data Link Connection Identifiers (DLCIs) and Committed Information Rates (CIRs) and gives customers the flexibility to view the entire link or drill down to an individual DLCI.
9, the Frame Relay Forum standard for data compression, providing up to 4X compression in many applications, and with dedicated compression history tracked separately on up to 200 virtual circuits; -- Switched transmission, using Xylan's extensive virtual LAN capabilities, including the ability to support multiple virtual paths across a single Data Link Connection Identifier (DLCI); -- RFC 1490 encapsulation, including Q.
These include performance enhancements which increase Frame Relay throughput by over 100% across the switching backplane, expanded Digital Link Connection Identifiers (DLCIs) allowing connection to up to 500 PVCs per interface, and multiple Local Access Points (LAPs).
