A network administrator has statically configured the LMI type on the interface of a Cisco router that is running Cisco IOS Release 11.2. If the service provider modifies its own LMI type in the future, what step must the network administrator take?

The network administrator must modify the keepalive time interval to maintain connectivity with the LMI type of the service provider.
The network administrator does not have to do anything, because all LMI types are compatible with one another.
The network administrator must statically set the LMI type to be compatible with the service provider.
The network administrator simply has to verify connectivity with the provider, because the router has an LMI autosensing feature that automatically detects the LMI type.

Which provider-negotiated parameter would allow a customer to send data above the rate of the bandwidth specified by the CIR?

Traffic that exits subinterface Serial 0/0/0.102 is marked with DLCI 201.
Traffic on Serial 0/0/0 is experiencing congestion between R1 and the Frame Switch.
Traffic that is mapped to DLCI 201 will exit subinterface Serial 0/0/0.201.
Frames that enter router R1 from a Frame Relay neighbor will have DLCI 201 in the frame header.

Which three actions can be taken to solve Layer 3 routing protocol router reachability issues when using Frame Relay? (Choose three.)

Use subinterfaces.
Disable Inverse ARP.
Use a full mesh topology.
Use the keyword cisco as the LMI type.
Disable split horizon.
Configure static DLCI mappings.

When would the multipoint keyword be used in Frame Relay PVCs configuration?

when multicasts must be supported
when using physical interfaces
when participating routers are in the same subnet
when global DLCIs are in use

A network engineer has issued the interface serial 0/0/1.102 point-to-point command on a router that will be communicating with another router over a Frame Relay virtual circuit that is identified by the DLCI 102. Which two commands would be appropriate for the network engineer to issue next? (Choose two.)

no shutdown
no ip address
encapsulation frame relay
ip address
frame-relay interface-dlci 102

Which two Frame Relay router reachability issues are resolved by configuring logical subinterfaces? (Choose two.)

LMI status inquiry messages sent to the network are not received.
Inverse ARP fails to associate all IP addresses to the correct DLCIs.
Frame Relay is unable to map a remote IP address to a DLCI.
Distance vector routing protocols are unable to forward routing updates back out the incoming interface to other remote routers.
Link-state routing protocols are unable to complete neighbor discovery.


Refer to the exhibit. A network administrator has implemented the show interfaces serial 0/1/0 command. What can be verified from the displayed output?

Router R1 connects to multiple sites through the serial 0/1/0 interface.

Split horizon is preventing successful routing table updates on the multipoint link.
Multipoint Frame Relay networks cannot be used with this IP addressing scheme.
