Re: What frame relay switch is causing MCI/Worldcom such grief?
Doe's anyone have an idea as to what Link State Algorithm the Cascade/Ascend 9000's switches run? I have been given conflicting reports that it is OSPF, or others say that it is OSPF "like" since John Moy worked for Cascade, he developed a version of OSPF for the Cascade/Ascend switches. Doe's anyone have more info on this? Also, if so, what version is supported on the Amethyst, Jade v.1, v.2. releases. Apparently, this may have something to do with all the instability issues with WCOM. CJ Michael Dillon wrote: > On Mon, 9 Aug 1999, Michael P.
