RE: Frame Relay encap vis-a-vis point-to-point at UUNET

Well, UUnet does terminate T3s into the Cascades.  One of our T3s happens to
go to UUnet and it is into one of their Cascades at PAIX.  It is currently
only a fraction circuit.  From talking with their installer, they only plug
you directly into one of their routers if the circuit is 15mb or higher.  We
have had this circuit for 9 months now and everything seems to be working
great with it.

	Later,
	Chris

I have never heard complaints about the Cascades for T-1 termination
except where they are terminating too many sessions in the Cascades and
the router couldn't handle that many sessions. This was a bigger problem 
before the 7500 series routers came out and more importantly the RSP4s. 

Fortunately UUNet doesn't terminate T3s into Cascades or ATM switches 
(yet...)
