Hi Cisco crew,

i was thinking of getting a 2610 for a frame relay setup. will i still need a TRANSCEIVER? please let me know if this is a good router for it or any suggestions on what to get to complete frame relay.

thanks and god bless

    The only built in port on a 2610 is a single ethernet. You'll need WICs or an NM to use it for frame relay. If you want to use it as a frame relay switch you'll probably want to get a NM-4A/S or a couple WIC-2Ts. You won't need a transceiver though.

    You won't need a transceiver, but you'll have to get one of these: Understanding 4- and 8-Port Async/Sync Network Modules - Cisco Systems

    As previous posters have stated... you'll need the NM-4A/S and the 2610 will run perfectly. This is currently what I use as a Frame Relay Switch. HTH
