Frame Relay is a data link layer digital packet-switched network protocol technology designed to connect local area networks (LANs) and transfer data over wide area networks (WANs). Frame Relay shares some of the same underlying technology as X.25.
It is based on the older X.25 packet-switching technology that was designed to transmit analog data as voice conversations. Unlike X.25, which was designed for analog signals, Frame Relay is a fast packet technology, which means that the protocol does not attempt to correct errors. It is often used to connect LANs with main backbones, as well as in public wide area networks and in private network environments with leased T-1 lines. It requires a dedicated connection during the transmission period and is not ideal for voice or video, which require a constant stream of transmissions.
