Generic Requirements for Frame Relay Access To SMDS
Document Number TA-TSV-001240
Issue Number 01
Issue Date Jun 1993
ABSTRACT: This Technical Advisory presents the early preliminary view of Telcordia Technologies on generic criteria for Frame Relay Access to
Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS). SMDS is a connectionless, public, packet-switched data service that provides Local Area
Network (LAN) features and performance across wide geographic areas.
The TA defines specifications for a Frame Relay Permanent Virtual Circuit access path to the network supporting SMDS using the SMDS
Interface Protocol (SIP) Relay Interface (SRI). It also defines requirements for a near-term Local Exchange Carrier (LEC) network
implementation in support of this access method.
