Re: Multi-link Frame Relay OR Load Balancing

In my experience the breakeven point for a Frame Relay DS3 is 6 DS1I'll second that. Our ILEC extended our existing SONET node (for the PBX in another building) to our machine room (couldn't push DS3 over copper that far). Now, if they'd just terminate the old T1s at the new node and not push them over local copper from there to the machine room, we would be sitting pretty.
Another nice thing about DS3's is that it is easy to scale bandwidth inDitto. We have one in a 7204 with a CIR of 30Mb. Handles it quite nicely, replaced 5 T1s on load-sharing per-packet link.
