Is frame relay a level 2 protocol?

Is frame relay a level 2 protocol?
Yes, frame relay relays packets at the Data Link layer (Layer 2) of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model rather than at the Network layer. A frame can incorporate packets from different protocols such as Ethernet and X.25. It is variable in size and can be as large as a thousand bytes or more.
