different kinds of frame-relay connections, dynamic, static, broadcast

There can be differnet kinds of frame-relay connections. You can lookup the status with „show frame-relay map“ to see what kind of conenction you have.

  • dynamic mapping – if frame-relay uses inverse arp to dynamically map the dlci with the ip address, it’s a dynamic mapping
  • static mapping – if you use a map statement to statically map the given dlci to an ip address, this is called a static connection.
  • broadcast – pon point-to-point links there a „frame-relay interface-dlci“ statement can „setup“ mapping. So this would show up as neither dynamic or static, than broadcast.
