Advanced Features
Fiber Port Options
10/100M models with fixed-fiber connectors are available with
multimode (MM) dual fiber, single-mode (SM) dual fiber and
single-mode single-fiber (SF) options. They support ST, SC,
LC and MT-RJ connectors with distances up to 5km over MM
fiber, 120km over SM fiber and 40km over SF. The 10/100M
Small Form Pluggable (SFP) model supports a wide variety of
SFP transceivers available in 20nm increments from 1270nm
to 1610nm to support FTTX and CWDM applications.
Port Statistics and Optical Performance Statistics
The 10/100M supports reporting of utilization, port and optical
performance statistics. Port statistics are available for 38
different variables for the UTP and fiber ports. Additionally,
full optical performance statistics are available on SFP fiber
transceivers with a digital diagnostic bus.
Port and optical performance statistics reporting provides
the ability to monitor customer bandwidth utilization, network
performance and the link signal quality for each individual
port.
Link Modes
The 10/100M features multiple, user-selectable link fault
detection modes, including Link Fault Propagation, Remote
Fault Detection and Symmetrical Fault Detection. These Link
Modes provide rapid fault detection and isolation by monitoring
the state of the cabling hardware, and operate independently
of the network management.
IEEE 802.3ah Operations, Administration and Maintenance
The 10/100M supports the IEEE 802.3ah OAM standard,
including Fault Detection, Performance Monitoring and Remote
Loopback.
Tag VLAN, Port VLAN and QoS
The iConverter 10/100M supports the IEEE 802.1Q tag Virtual
Local Area Network (VLAN) packet tagging and untagging
(including Q-in-Q) and the 802.1p Quality of Service priority
standards.
10/100M VLAN Q-in-Q tunneling technology enables service
providers to offer their customers E-Line and E-LAN services
via Ethernet Virtual Circuit (EVC), which connect multiple
business LANs at different locations and make their networks
appear to be on the same local network. Q-in-Q Service tags
transparently transport customer network traffic across the
service provider network, isolating it from other customer and
service provider management traffic.
10/100M Port VLAN enables the ability to specify and restrict
traffic flow between the fiber, UTP, backplane and management
ports.
The 802.1p prioritization standard enables delivery of Quality
of Service (QoS) to high-priority, real-time applications such
as voice and video over Ethernet.
Performance Monitoring
802.3ah Performance Monitoring tools are used for the detection
and notification of link performance (quality) faults. Ethernet
data performance can deteriorate slowly before disrupting
service, and the 10/100M allows the setting of error-per-second
thresholds. Once the pre-set error threshold is exceeded, an
event notification is generated that provides early indication of
a problem that may be resolved prior to loss of service.
Fault Detection
The 10/100M detects and indicates link failures, dying gasp
and other critical events.
Remote Loopback
Remote Loopback is used for fault localization and link
performance testing. When a 10/100M port is in loopback
mode, all received service traffic is looped back and transmitted
back unaltered. The statistics from the 10/100M port and the
remote link partner can be compared for consistency.
metro ethernet access
Port Bandwidth Control and Port Access Control
The Bandwidth Control feature supports levels of bandwidth
between the fiber and UTP ports from 128Kbps to Full Line
Speed.
The 10/100M features Port Access Control which blocks user
service while maintaining the network link. Port Access Control
enables the service provider to control user access while
maintaining port configuration for easy disabling or enabling
of customer service. Port Access Control provides enterprise
administrators the capability to improve network security by
controlling port access when the port is not in use.
iConverter10/100M
At the Central Office, the 10/100M plug-in module is installed
in a managed iConverter 19-Module chassis for high-density
fiber distribution from UTP switch equipment. At Customer
Premises 1, the 10/100M plug-in module is installed in a
2-Module chassis with an iConverter 4TxVT four-port switch
module. The two modules share data via the Ethernet
Backplane. This configuration functions as a remotely
managed demarcation switch with a fiber uplink port to the
Central Office and five copper ports that drop off Ethernet
service. At Customer Premises 2, the 10/100M standalone
NID provides a fiber uplink to a single copper port for intelligent
demarcation of Ethernet services.

Management system
The 10/100M has integrated management, eliminating the
cost and space required for external management hardware.
The iConverter management system provides comprehensive
remote configuration and performance monitoring. iConverter
management reduces operational expenditures by keeping
truck rolls to a minimum through remote provisioning, trap
notification and loopback capabilities.
iConverter management is available out-of-band via IP-Less
protocol using the 802.3ah OAM channel or Omnitron’s Secure
OAM channel, or in-band using SNMP or Telnet.
Management is accessed via Omnitron’s NetOutlook SNMP
Network Management Software with an intuitive Graphical
User Interface, or third party SNMP software. Telnet and CLI
management interfaces are also supported, and utilize an easy
to use, menu-driven interface. The CLI interface is accessed
via a Serial Console Port, that provides local configuration
and allows for firmware updates. Additionally, the port can be
connected to a serial modem to provide an alternative remote
management path.
A management processor on the 10/100M in the 19-Module
Chassis isolates the encrypted management data from the
customer data and communicates with the NMM via a separate
management backplane bus. Management traffic on the
user data lines is IP-less and carried on a securely encrypted
data channel to protect the management from unauthorized
access. The chassis at the Central Office requires only a single
IP address to manage itself and all of the connected remote
chassis managed by the Remote OAM channel. This is the ideal
configuration for networks that separate secure management
traffic from the service (customer) traffic on different networks,
or when management IP addresses are at a premium.

IP-Based Management
The 10/100M can be managed through IP protocols, SNMPv1,
SNMPv2c, SNMPv3 and Telnet. The IP address of the 10/100M
can be user-defined or resolved through the DHCP host on
the network. The IP protocols for management access can
be enabled or disabled individually or as a group. Access to
the management is protected by password authentication.
SMNPv3 strengthens secure access to devices by a
combination of authenticating and encrypting packets over the
network. Management VLAN can also be defined to separate
management traffic from customer traffic.
