A Frame Relay makes it possible to share facilities because
of Bursts. A Burst is a specific amount of data shot over lines from one point
to another, not a constant stream. This gives companies an ability to share lines to cut
cost. Since no one person or company needs to use 100% of this channel 100% of the time.
This shared facility is called a Frame Relay network or a
Frame Relay cloud. This is the network that connects your company to VividNET
Communication and then out to the world.

bandwidth does my company need?
The bandwidth ( how many K of frame relay ) usage really depends on what you are
using it for. The most important thing to keep in mind is that a 128 K Frame Relay is not
the same type of line used for higher speed Frames.
384 K, 512 K and Full T1 Frame Relays run off the same physical lines. This makes it easy
to upgrade quickly from 128K to a Full T1 with an affordable setup cost. The easiest way
to figure out what size of line you require is to follow this table.
