Typical Application—
Service Provider
Transparent LAN service providers require remote management
capabilities, and must be able to isolate management traffic and
customer data. Typical Customer Premises Equipment (CPE)
do not allow this, since those devices are usually owned by
the customer and inaccessible to the network operator. The
compact IE-MiniFiberLinX-II, functioning as a more advanced
Network Interface Device (NID), is designed for operation
by service providers and campus network administrators. It
provisions point-to-point fiber optic connections and provides
a remote network interface at the customer’s location that
monitors the entire link between two locations.
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II for fiber optic networks allows service
providers to deliver managed, high-bandwidth “triple play”
voice, video and data services to customer premises.
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II and the fiber link can be managed as
a single entity, allowing remote configuration and autonomous
alerts to network administrators on fault conditions. As a copperto-fiber media converter, it allows low-cost copper switches to
connect to the fiber line. Offering unparalleled flexibility, the
IE-MiniFiberLinX-II supports multiple fiber types including multimode and single-mode as well as single-strand fiber, doubling
the capacity of installed fiber. Coarse Wavelength Division
Multiplexing (CWDM) functionality is also an option.
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II comes equipped with one 100 Mbps
fiber port for data and management, one 10/100 twisted pair
port for customer data, as well as an RS-232 port for local
configuration on the unit during installation. The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II supports multiple powering options. Use
the included AC power adapter or use a 4-terminal DC power
block, which has an extended voltage range of 5 to 50VDC. The
IE-MiniFiberLinX-II also complies with the IEEE 802.3af Power
over Ethernet standard, acting as a Powered Device (PD) to draw
power when connected to 802.3af-compliant Power Sourcing
Equipment (PSE).
NID Application
800-624-1070 Combining copper-to-fiber conversion, extended
temperature performance, plug-and-play
operation, miniature size and multiple power
options, the IE-MiniFiberLinX-II is one of the
most versatile fiber optic NID devices available
on the market today.
RoHS Compliant
Full-Featured IE-MiniFiberLinX-II
From a central location, network operators are able to receive real-time device and traffic statistics on the remote device, allocate bandwidth, turn
services on or off, initiate loopback testing, modify VLAN settings and adjust QoS policies assigned to different traffic types.
•VLAN Support— VLAN tagging capability keeps customer
data and SNMP traffic separated
•Troubleshooting Features— FiberAlert, LinkLoss and 802.3ah
Passive OAM (Operations, Administration and Maintenance)
assist in diagnosing potential problems on fiber optic networks
•Loopback Testing— Functionality loops back all frames
arriving on the fiber port (except for the device’s management
traffic). Supports MAC Address swap on Loopbacks
•Bandwidth Control— Fine granularity allows operators to
offer custom levels of service and easily change bandwidth
allocation, remotely, in seconds via SNMP
•Supports the Unified Management Agent (UMA)—
The FiberLinX family has always supported Host/Remote
environments, i.e. managing the Remote from the Host
location. With UMA, operators can centrally manage all
devices installed in an iMediaChassis using only a single IP
address for the chassis. Refer to the UMA data sheet for more
Using the VLAN Functionality on the IE-MiniFiberLinX-II
Service providers routinely use IEEE 802.1Q Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tagging to secure, separate and differentiate customer traffic. The
IE-MiniFiberLinX-II enables service providers support of multiple VLAN-based applications.
•IEEE 802.1Q VLAN compatible
•Valid VLAN IDs are 1 to 4,094
•Port-based VLAN tagging and Q-in-Q (extra tagging)
•Transparency Mode passes all data and respects the VLAN tag or
lack thereof, i.e. allows a mixture of VLAN Tagged and Untagged
•Configure to support VLAN IDs, filtering/passing up to 32 VLAN IDs
for data, plus an additional VLAN ID for SNMP management
•IEEE 802.1p provides a two-tier queue for differential prioritization
of inbound and outbound traffic, which is especially beneficial for
traffic requiring high priority, such as VoIP
Using Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) with the IE-MiniFiberLinX-II
Optionally, the IE-MiniFiberLinX-II provide for Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing, adding scalability to data delivery
•Scalability allows transport of data on up to eight wavelengths
•Increase bandwidth without the addition of more fiber strands
SNMP Management Made Easy
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II features an SNMP management
agent for monitoring the status and activity on copper
and fiber ports at the remote end. Initial setup and
modifications can be performed in the field via iView²
SNMP application, Telnet/TFTP, or a local serial (CRAFT)
•Remote, software upgrades via Telnet/TFTP or
management software ( iView²)
•Monitor unit and fiber with real-time monitoring and
•Change bandwidth “on-the-fly” up to 100 Mbps
•Create a secure management domain to isolate
management domain broadcasts from TX Data ports
on both units
•User-definable unit/port descriptions and information
800-624-1070 Application Examples
Typical Application— Single
IE-MiniFiberLinX-II Solution
NID Application
Network operators can deploy a single
IE-MiniFiberLinX-II in stand-alone applications. At
the Central Office (CO), a fiber switch connects
via a fiber cable to the IE-MiniFiberLinX-II at the
customer premises. The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II can be
managed from the CO over SNMP or Telnet.
Typical Application— Powering
The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II is very versatile and offers
a range of AC and DC powering options. It
also supports 802.3af powering functionality,
allowing it to act as a Powered Device (PD). The IE-MiniFiberLinX-II can be powered from a
PSE-enabled wireless Access Point, which in turn
can be powered by a remote source such as
the solar panels on a street light. The data is
transmitted over fiber to an iMediaChassis/20 with
iMcV modules in the Central Office to form an
end-to-end managed system.
