About the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
NOTE
Unless noted otherwise, all references to the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II in this manual are
also applicable to the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II TX/SFP and iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
SFP/SFP.
Overview
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II allows network operators to deploy managed
Ethernet services, with a full range of remote management, traffic monitoring,
and alarm reporting features. Operators can choose from enhanced versions
combining 1000 Mbps fiber to 10/100/1000 Mbps copper, or an all-copper
version. The fiber-to-copper versions are available for a range of fiber
connectors (SC, ST, or SFP) and a variety of wavelengths, supporting higher
density CWDM and single-strand fiber operation.
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II supports two main configuration modes: Standalone
or Host/Remote. When using Host/Remote, the Remote modules can be fully
managed without an IP address using a secure management channel. In either
mode, the network operator can choose to assign an IP address to the Host or
Standalone module. Or, if using a local iMediaChassis managed chassis, all
local and remotely connected iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules can be managed
using the single IP address of the chassis. This not only preserves IP addresses
and reduces configuration complexity, but management traffic traveling on the
non-IP based transmission channel is kept isolated from customer traffic,
enhancing network security.
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II offers the following features:
• Securely separates the SNMP management network from the data network
• IEEE 802.1Q VLAN Tagging
• Q-in-Q VLAN Extra-Tagging with EtherType (TPID) selection
• Remote traffic monitoring
• Remote automatic alarms
• Bandwidth limiting
• FiberAlert (loss return)—Fiber versions only
• FX and TX LinkLoss (Link Fault Pass Through (LFPT)
• Loopback testing
• Auto Negotiation
• Selective Advertising
• AutoCross
• Broadcast Storm Protection
• Provisioned for IEEE-802.3ah OAM support
• Coming soon: ability to be configured as a Remote device and managed
through UMA

The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module is a double-slot, chassis-mounted module.
Compatible chassis include the following:



iMediaChassis series
MediaChassis series
IE-MediaChassis series
Port Interfaces
Every iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II includes the following port:

A 10/100/1000 twisted pair port (EXT MGMT) for management
One of the following uplink ports:


One fixed 1000 Mbps Fiber port
A SFP port capable of receiving a gigabit fiber optic SFP module
or a gigabit twisted pair (RJ-45) SFP module
And one of the following DATA ports:


A 10/100/1000 twisted pair (RJ-45) port
A SFP port capable of receiving a gigabit fiber optic SFP module or a
gigabit twisted pair (RJ-45) SFP module
Configure the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II by using either the serial craft port
connection, through SNMP management application such as iView² or a Telnet
session.
About Serial Port Configuration
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II includes a serial port on the unused pins of the EXT
MGMT Ethernet port. This RS-232 serial connection provides access to the
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module configuration screens. These configuration
screens are also accessible from a Telnet connection.
DHCP Disable (Static IP Addressing)
DHCP is disabled in the default configuration. Initially, modules are assigned a
Static default IP Address of 10.10.10.10. Changes to the Static IP Address can
be added manually through iConfig, an RS-232 Serial session, or Telnet. The
changes will be initiated following reboot of the module.
DHCP Enable (Dynamic IP Addressing)
If a DHCP server is present on the network and DHCP is enabled, the DHCP
client will initiate a dialogue with the server during the boot up sequence. The
server will then issue an IP address to the management card. Once the new IP
address is received, the SNMP Management Module will reboot so that the new
2
IP address will take effect. Refer to About Serial Port Configuration for more
information about Enabling/Disabling DHCP.
When there is no DHCP server on the network, use iConfig or serial configuration
to manually set the IP addresses.
When DHCP is enabled, the IP address (default 10.10.10.10 or user configured)
is saved. When DHCP is disabled, the saved IP address will be reinstated and
the device will reboot.
DHCP servers give out lease times: devices renew their leases based on the
administrator-specified time. If a device cannot renew its lease, and the lease
expires, the device will be given the IP address 10.10.10.10 and will reboot.

iView Management Software
iView² is the B&B Electronics management software designed specifically for the
B&B Electronics iMcV family of modules. It features a Graphical User Interface
(GUI) and gives network managers the ability to monitor and control the
manageable B&B Electronics products.
2
iView is available in several versions and can also function as a snap-in module
for HP OpenView Network Node Manager. For assistance in selecting the right
version of iView² for a specific operating system, please visit:
http://www.bb-elce.com
2
iView supports the following platforms:
•
•
•
•
Windows NT
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Vista
In addition, there are Java versions of iView² for other Java capable operating
systems such as Linux.
iConfig Utility
iConfig is a configuration utility in iView² that allows the user to quickly and easily
complete the initial SNMP configuration for B&B Electronics’ SNMP-manageable
devices. iConfig can set the IP address, set the Subnet Mask and Default
Gateway, define the Community Strings, and define SNMP Traps. iConfig can
also be used to upload new versions of unit software.
iConfig offers an authorized IP address system and access restriction to MIB
groups supported by the B&B Electronics manageable devices. These extra
layers of security are purely optional and do not effect SNMP compatibility in any
way.
Default Username/Password
The default user ID and password for both iConfig and Telnet are the following:
User: admin / Password: admin
For information on how to set/change passwords, see Password
Protection/Changing Password.
NOTE
It is the responsibility of the network administrator to store and maintain the
password lists.

Installation
Each iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module requires two slots in an iMediaChassis,
MediaChassis or IE-MediaChassis. To install the module in a chassis, remove
the blank faceplates covering the slots where the module is to be installed. Then
slide the module into the chassis card guides until the module is seated securely
in the connector. Secure the module to the chassis by tightening the captive
screw.
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module includes on-board SNMP logic. A chassis
other than an iMediaChassis series cannot manage an iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II,
so the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II must be managed independently.
When installed in an iMediaChassis, the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module can be
managed from the chassis by using the Unified Management Agent (UMA).
Refer to http://www.bb-elec.com for more information on using UMA with iConfig,
iMediaChassis and iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II. iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules not
managed by UMA must have an IP address assigned to them after installation
before they can be managed. Refer to Assigning IP Information for more
information.
Small Form-Factor Pluggable Ports (SFP)
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules are available with one or two optional SFP
port(s). It is necessary to use a 1000 Mbps speed SFP for fiber connections or
any gigabit copper SFP (1000 Mbps or 10/100/1000 Mbps). In addition, many
SFPs, including those from B&B Electronics, feature enhanced diagnostics
capabilities with a Digital Diagnostics Monitoring Interface (DDMI). DDMI
statistics provide real-time access to transceiver operating parameters such as
voltage, temperature, laser bias current, and both transmitted and received
2
optical power. DDMI information can be accessed in iView by clicking Tables >
SFP Info.
NOTE
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II has been tested with the B&B Electronics SFP modules. You
can install any MSA-compliant SFP module. However, B&B Electronics does not
guarantee the functionality of non-B&B Electronics SFP modules due to possible nonconformity with MSA design standards.
AutoCross Feature for Twisted Pair Connection
All twisted pair ports on the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II include AutoCross, a feature
that automatically selects between a crossover workstation and a straightthrough connection depending on the connected device.

Hardware Configuration
Before installing the module in a chassis, there are two features that must be
selected using the DIP switches. These selections are:
•
•
Enable or disable management on each port
(DIP switches 1, 2, and 3)
Configure the module as a standalone, a host, or a remote
(DIP switches 7 and 8)
DIP Switch Settings
Before installing the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II, use the DIP Switches to set the
hardware-configurable features. The DIP Switches are located on switch SW1
on the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II card. Refer to the diagram and table for switch
settings and available features.

Host/Remote and Standalone Units
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II can be used as a Host, Remote, or Standalone unit.
Refer to the Application Examples section for examples.
When two iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II units are used as a pair, configure one as a
Host unit (DIP switch 8 = ON) and the other as a Remote unit (DIP switch 7 =
ON). As a host unit, the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II requests management
information from the attached remote unit. It then displays that information, along
9
with its own, when queried by SNMP. As a Remote unit, the iMcV-GigaFiberLinX-II will respond to requests for management information from an
attached Host unit.
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II default configuration is as a Standalone unit (DIP
Switches 7 and 8 = OFF).
Management
Although the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II provides a twisted pair port solely for
management (EXT MGMT), the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II can be configured to
accept IP-based management traffic from any of its three ports. Enable
management on more than one port, or disable management on all of the ports,
as desired. These switches limit only IP-based management. Host-to- Remote
management is IP-less and is never blocked from the fiber port. Serial port
management of the unit is always available on the EXT MGMT port regardless of
the DIP Switch settings.
In addition to defining which ports are used to manage the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinXII units, the management DIP Switch settings also define what ports the flow of
the Network Provider’s Management Domain traffic can take through the unit.
See Application Examples for information regarding the Management Domain.
DIP Switch 1 = On for management on the EXT MGMT port.
DIP Switch 2 = On for management on the DATA port.
DIP Switch 3 = On for management on the OPTICS or UPLINK port.
10
Software Configuration
The following sections describe the features that can be configured. Refer to the
iView² online help for iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module configuration information.
Assigning IP Information
When the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II is installed in an iMediaChassis, use UMA to
manage the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II without an IP address (refer to the iView²
online help for more information on UMA). When the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II is
not installed in an iMediaChassis, SNMP-management is not accessible until the
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II IP information (e.g., IP address, subnet mask, etc.) is
configured (using iConfig, a serial port craft connection, or DHCP). After
assigning iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II an IP address, use iView² or another SNMPcompatible Network Management System (NMS) to remotely configure, monitor
and manage the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II.
Auto Negotiation, Duplex Mode, and Speed
The DATA and EXT MGMT ports on the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II module Auto
Negotiate for speed and duplex mode. This module also provides the option of
selectively advertising or forcing the speed and duplex mode.
Auto Negotiation
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II ships from the factory with Auto Negotiation enabled
on the twisted-pair ports. In this mode, the ports negotiate for speed and duplex.
Forcing the Speed and Duplex Mode
Manually set the twisted-pair ports on the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II for 10 Mbps or
100, or 1000 Mbps operation at Half- or Full-Duplex (i.e., 10 Mbps Full-Duplex,
10 Mbps Half-Duplex, 100 Mbps Full-Duplex, 100 Mbps Half-Duplex, 1000 Mbps
Full-Duplex, 1000 Mbps Half-Duplex). The Optics Port operates at 1000Mbps
Full-Duplex.
Selective Advertising
Selective Advertising, when used in combination with Auto Negotiation,
advertises only the configured speed and duplex mode for the twisted pair port.
If a specific speed and/or duplex mode are desired, B&B Electronics
recommends using Selective Advertising, rather than Force Mode, when
connecting to devices that only use Auto Negotiation.
Bandwidth Control
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II includes bi-directional bandwidth control in 32 Kbps
2
increments (configurable via iView ). This allows the bandwidth limit to be set
independently from the DATA Port to the OPTICS (or UPLINK) Port and vice
11
versa in a single iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II application. In a dual iMcV-GigaFiberLinX-II application, it can be set from the Host unit to the Remote unit and
vice versa (i.e., the bandwidth on the DATA ports on both the Host and Remote
modules can be limited independently).
NOTE
Management packets do not have priority over data packets.
12
FX/TX LinkLoss and FiberAlert
During normal operation, link integrity pulses are transmitted by all point-to-point
Ethernet devices. When an iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II receives valid link pulses, it
knows that the device to which it is connected is up, and that the copper or fiber
cable coming from that device is intact. The appropriate LNK (link) LED is lit to
indicate this. For troubleshooting information utilizing the LinkLoss and FiberAlert
features of the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules, refer to Troubleshooting at the
end of this manual.
** WARNING **
FiberAlert and LinkLoss features cause data interruptions designed to alert remote sites
of line failures. These data interruptions can be misinterpreted as module failures when
these features are enabled. Enable these features only when the resulting data
interruptions and causes are well understood.
FX LinkLoss
FX LinkLoss is a link integrity monitoring feature that forwards fiber link faults to
the RJ-45 Data port to indicate that a fiber link fault has occurred.
TX LinkLoss
TX LinkLoss is a link integrity monitoring feature that forwards an RJ-45 link fault
to the fiber connected device to indicate that a link fault has occurred.
FiberAlert
FiberAlert minimizes the problems associated with the loss of one strand of fiber.
Normally when a single strand of fiber is lost, the transmitting side of the
connection is unaware that there is a fault. FiberAlert returns faults back on the
fiber they came in on.
Using LinkLoss and FiberAlert
In a typical central site to remote site media conversion, it is recommended that
the enable the LinkLoss and FiberAlert features are enabled as indicated in the
following:
FiberAlert and LinkLoss

** WARNING **
Do not enable FiberAlert on both modules when using iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II in
13
pairs. This will cause them to lock up when a fault occurs on the fiber. Only enable
FiberAlert on the remote module.
Link Fault Pass Through (LFPT)
Link Fault Pass Through is a troubleshooting feature that combines TX and FX
LinkLoss from both the local and remote modules. LFPT is enabled by turning on
both FX and TX LinkLoss on both modules. This feature allows either end of the
conversion to detect a link fault occurring at the other end of the media
conversion chain.
Regardless whether a break occurs on a copper or fiber segment between the
End device and the media converter, or between the two media converters, End
devices at both ends.
Regardless if there is a break in segment 1, 2 or 3, the link will drop on the
switches at both ends. It acts just like it would if the devices were directly
connected.
NOTE
FiberAlert can also be added to the remote side of the pair to further assist in locating
a fault.
Last Gasp
NOTE
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II does not support Last Gasp, as the present hardware
design cannot provide that feature.
14
Loopback Testing
The following functions are available during loopback testing. During loopback
testing, management traffic entering the uplink port is still capable of managing
the device. This is selectable form the UNIT screen in a serial/Telnet session.
There are no LoopBack test options in iView²
The menu of choices in the CLI includes:
• No loopback, normal traffic mode
• Loopback Enabled
• Loopback, Source/Destination address swap
• Loopback, address swap and clear Multicast bit
• No learning on fiber or Data ports
The menu of choices in iView² includes:
• Off
• ON
• On-Address Swap
• On-Address Swap + Clear MC
Loopback Testing on Remote or Standalone
No loopback, normal traffic mode
The standard mode in which the units function, either as stand-alone or
Host/Remote.
Loopback Enabled
Loopback mode without address swap
Source/Destination Address Swap
A Layer 2 Ethernet switch will discard all received packets with the same MAC
address as sent packets. To avoid this issue the Loopback feature can swap the
source and destination MAC addresses on the looped data. (This selection can
cause a frame with a multicast source address to be created, which violates the
IEEE standard.)
Address Swap and Clear Multicast Bit
In addition to swapping the source and destination MAC addresses on the looped
data, the Loopback feature can also be set to clear the multicast bit. This allows
the looped data to avoid being blocked by any multicast settings.
Loopback Testing in a Host/Remote Configuration
Configure the Host by selecting No Learning on OPTICS and DATA Ports; on the
Remote, choose SRC/DST Address Swap or Address Swap and Clear Multicast
Bit.
15
Host: No Learning on OPTICS and DATA Ports
The Loopback feature can be set to disable address learning on the OPTICS (or
UPLINK) and DATA ports, allowing the loopback to be performed without
interference from MAC address filtering functions. This is a function on the
HOST unit. Set the REMOTE unit for Loopback then set the HOST to disable
learning so Loopback frames pass from the Optics port to the Data port.
Remote:Source/Destination Address Swap
A Layer 2 Ethernet switch will discard all received packets with the same MAC
address as sent packets. To avoid this issue the Loopback feature can swap the
source and destination MAC addresses on the looped data.
OR
Address Swap and Clear Multicast Bit
In addition to swapping the source and destination MAC addresses on the looped
data, the Loopback feature can also be set to clear the multicast bit. This allows
the looped data to avoid being blocked by any multicast settings.
NOTE
Units should not be in the Default Mode when performing LoopBack tests.
Broadcast Storm Protection
Broadcast Storm Protection allows setting the maximum broadcast packet rate
allowed as a percentage of line speed (from 0% - 20%). The suggested value is
1%.
16
Using Telnet
It is necessary to assign the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II an IP address before using a
Telnet session (this is not necessary when using UMA). Refer to the Assigning
IP Information section for more information. All of the configurations that can be
performed from the serial port can also be performed using a Telnet session; only
one Telnet session can be launched at a time.
The following are the three levels for Telnet account access:
User: View status, change own password, and reboot.
Operator: All User privileges mentioned above, plus ability to change settings.
Administrator: Operator privileges mentioned above, plus ability to add/delete
accounts and reinitialize the unit to default settings (cleandb).
Serial Configuration/Telnet Session
The following sections describe serial configuration (including VLAN
configuration), Telnet session configuration, and DHCP configuration.
NOTE
Some screens may show TX and FX for the port titles where TX = DATA port and FX =
OPTICS (or UPLINK) port. The examples are from firmware version 512-00A2.
Serial Port (EXT MGMT)
NOTE
The serial port (EXT MGMT) is always set to Administrator level. The password for
Telnet sessions is the password that is set and used in iConfig (refer to the iConfig
section for more information).

press Enter.
Passwords are a way to make the management of the B&B Electronics devices
secure, but these password lists must be stored and maintained. If a password is
lost, neither users (including administrators) nor B&B Electronics have a way to
decode it. Refer to the iView² iConfig online help for more password information.
If the serial password is forgotten, it is necessary to contact tech support for
assistance in resetting the password. If the iConfig username and password are
forgotten, launch a console session through the serial port, and type in the
command cleandb. If both the serial and the iConfig passwords are forgotten,
please contact technical support at 1-800-624-1070.
Assigning SNMP Trap Destinations
Traps are sent by the manageable device to a management PC when a certain
event takes place. To enter a trap destination, press T. When prompted, enter
the IP address of the destination device and press Enter. Next, type the name of
the community string (that the destination device has been configured to accept)
and press Enter. Select whether the trap is for SNMP version 1 or 2c and press
Enter. This function enables all of the device traps. Use iConfig to configure the
device to selectively activate and de-activate traps.
19
Supported traps include: Link Down, Link Up, Cold Start, Warm Start, Last Gasp,
and Authentication Failure.
When deployed in pairs, iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II also supports the following traps:
• Remote Unit Lost
• Remote Unit Found
• Far End TX Link Up
• Far End TX Link Down

for general use and another with read/write access for the administrator) and
tested before deleting Public. To create a new community string, go to the main
configuration screen and press C. Enter the name of the new community (up to
16 characters, no spaces) and press Enter. Then type one of the following to
assign the community string’s access rights:
•
•
•
R = read-only access
W = read/write access
Enter = abort
Deleting All SNMP Community Strings
To delete all community strings and start over, press U. Press Y when prompted
to proceed and delete all community strings, N to abort. Press Enter to finish.
This function will delete all community strings. To selectively delete community
strings, use iConfig to configure the device.

In the Port Control Settings area of the Port screen it is possible to set the
following:
Port Enable - Enable or disable the port. Both Port Enable and Admin Status
must be enabled (enabled and up) to enable the port. This setting can be
2
disabled from iView .
Admin Status - Enable (Up) or disable (Down) the port. Both Port Enable and
Admin Status must be enabled (enabled and up) to enable the port. This setting
can be disabled from MIB-II compatible software.
Port Speed Ctrl - Set the port for Auto Negotiation or to force one of the
following speeds:

10/100/1000 Mbps Half-Duplex

10/100/1000 Mbps Full-Duplex
Advertise Ctrl - This is the Selective Advertising feature. Selective Advertising
is used in combination with Auto Negotiation to advertise the selected speed and
duplex mode for the DATA and EXT MGMT ports. This allows advertising: all
speeds and duplex modes; 10 Mbps Half-Duplex; 10 Mbps Full-Duplex; 100
Mbps Half-Duplex; 100 Mbps Full-Duplex; 10 Mbps Half and Full-Duplex; etc.
Auto Negotiation must be enabled for Selective Advertising to work.
NOTE
If a specific speed and/or duplex mode are desired, B&B Electronics recommends
using Selective Advertising, instead of Force Mode, when connecting to devices that
can only Auto Negotiate. For the FO uplink versions, the port is always force flow
control 100 FDX and cannot be changed.
23
Advertise FlowC and Force FlowCtrl—the following are Advertise Control
features.
When using Flow Control functionality on any port, enable Flow Control (refer to
Unit Flow Control for more information). Next, configure each port individually:

To use Auto Negotiation and Flow Control:
Advertise FlowC = Advertise Flow, Force FlowCtrl = Flow Auto

To use Auto Negotiation but not Flow Control
Advertise FlowC = No Flow

To use Flow Control and force the port speed (Port Speed Ctrl)
Advertise FlowC = Advertise Flow, Force FlowCtrl = Frc FlowCt
All RJ-45 ports feature Flow Control in Full-Duplex and Back Pressure Flow
control in Half-Duplex. Back Pressure Flow Control is a hardware based flow
control that forces collisions on the line to limit bandwidth.
Unit FlowControl - Enable or disable Flow Control functionality on the unit. This
must be enabled to use Flow Control on any port.
Mode Configuration—config
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II can be configured to allow several combinations of
VLAN tagging and management. This manual refers to the most useful
combinations as modes. The applications of these modes are described in detail
in the Application Examples section.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Mode One – Default
Mode Two – Transparency with Untagged Management
Mode Three - Transparency with Tagged Management
Mode Four - Transparency with Extra Tagging (Q-in-Q)
Mode Five - Port VLAN
Mode Six – Port VLAN Filter
NOTE
Default mode is the factory default and is provided as a starting point from which to
configure the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules. This mode does not provide
adequate management isolation and is not recommended for normal use.
This section describes the Telnet/serial port screens and fields available for
configuring the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modes.
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modes are configured using the config command
from the Device-Specific Options screen. This opens the Transparent Mode
screen or the VLAN Mode screen depending on the current configuration.
24
Transparent Mode
The Transparent Mode screen is displayed when the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
module is configured in Default mode or Transparent mode.
Transparent Mode – with either (not both) Data and Optics Mgmt dipswitches
set to on, all traffic passes between Optics and Data port EXCEPT what has
been defined as the Management Domain. The Management Domain can either be
defined as untagged traffic or traffic with a specified VLAN ID.
In Transparent Mode with BOTH Optics and Data Mgmt dipswitches set to off,
all traffic passes between the Optics and Data Ports.
Default Mode – the unit passes only Untagged Packets.
The unit is currently in Default Mode.
Enter Y for Transparent Mode, N for no Transparent Mode or <enter> to
move to other options [ Y ]

RX Bandwidth Limit - Set the receive bandwidth limit (up to 1000Mbps) for both
the DATA and OPTICS (or UPLINK) ports. Entering a setting of either 0 or
1,000,000,000 will result in a limit of 1000 Mbps. When the received data
reaches the set limit in a one second interval, the unit stops receiving data. If
flow control is enabled, then flow control begins prior to reaching the set limit.
TX Bandwidth Limit – Set the transmit bandwidth limit (up to 1000 Mbps) for
both the DATA and OPTICS (or UPLINK) ports. Entering a setting of either 0 or
1,000,000,000 will result in a limit of 1000 Mbps. When the transmit data
reaches the set limit in a one second interval, the unit stops transmitting data, but
will continue to receive until all the internal buffers are filled. If flow control is
enabled, then flow control begins before all the buffers are filled.
NOTE
It is not recommended to set both the RX and TX Bandwidth limits at the same time.
Setting TX Bandwidth Limits allows for full use of the memory buffers in the unit.
Unit RateControl Enable/Disable – Enable/disable the bandwidth limiting
feature on this unit.
Application Overview
Before using iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II, decide the following:
•
•
•
Will iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II units be located at only one or at both ends of
the fiber?
How will the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II units be managed?
Will VLAN IDs be defined?
32
How many iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II units will be used?
•
•
•
Two for Host/Remote applications–allows IP-less management providing
greater security
One for a single unit application
One unit as a host and a Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II as a Remote
How will the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II be managed?
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II can be managed through any of its three ports (and
any combination thereof) or from the chassis. Using the EXT MGMT/OPTICS (or
UPLINK) port combination separates management traffic from the data and
provides the highest level of security. UMA management does not require an IP
address.
Will VLAN IDs be defined?
When VLAN traffic is used with specific tags on any/all of the DATA ports, it is
necessary to disable Transparency and define VLAN IDs (refer to VLAN
Configuration section). When it is desirable to use VLAN tagged, untagged, or
double-tagged traffic, enable Transparency.
Application Examples
The following are application examples of the different VLAN configuration
modes available using the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II. If assistance is required to
configure an application, contact B&B Electronics Technical Support at
[email protected]
The application modes include the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Mode One – Default
Mode Two – Transparency with Untagged Management
Mode Three - Transparency with Tagged Management
Mode Four - Transparency with Extra Tagging (Q-in-Q)
Mode Five - Port VLAN
Mode Six - PortVLAN Filter
NOTE
When configuring VLAN IDs, remember to use any VLAN ID between 1 and 4,094. The
VLAN IDs used in the following applications are for example purposes ONLY.
Mode One-Default
Default mode passes only untagged data between the DATA port and the
OPTICS (or UPLINK) port. This mode is the factory default and is provided as a
33
starting point from which to configure the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules. It is
not intended as a mode for normal use.
NOTE
Default Mode does not provide any management traffic protection and is not
recommended for normal use.
Mode Two-Transparency with Untagged Management
Transparent with Untagged Management mode passes tagged traffic between
the DATA port and the OPTICS (or UPLINK) port and isolates untagged traffic as
management domain traffic (untagged).
To configure this mode, do the following:
1. Set the management DIP Switch ON for the ports using management (in this
example it is the OPTICS (or UPLINK) port: 3 = ON). To enable External
Management (EXT MGMT), set DIP Switch 1 to ON. (otherwise, leave DIP
Switch 1 in the OFF position (default from factory) to disable EXT MGMT)
2. Set Transparent Mode to allow both tagged data and untagged management
traffic to pass:
a. In the Main Configuration screen, press the Space Bar and type config.
The Configuration Screen displays:
Transparent Mode – with either (not both) Data and Optics Mgmt dipswitches
set to on, all traffic passes between Optics and Data port EXCEPT what has
been defined as the Management Domain. The Management Domain can either be
defined as untagged traffic or traffic with a specified VLAN ID.
In Transparent Mode with BOTH Optics and Data Mgmt dipswitches set to off,
all traffic passes between the Optics and Data Ports.
Default Mode – the unit passes only Untagged Packets.
The unit is currently in Default Mode.

NOTE
The flow of management domain traffic is defined by the DIP Switches. For
example, if the management DIP Switches are on the OPTICS and DATA ports,
management domain traffic is allowed to flow through those ports.

Mode Three-Transparency with Tagged Management
36
Transparent with Tagged Management mode passes both tagged and untagged
traffic between the DATA port and the OPTICS (or UPLINK) port. By using a
VLAN Tag, it is possible to isolate and route the management path in the module.
This method can be used with or without continuing the management path down
the EXT MGMT port.
To configure this mode, do the following:
1. Set the management DIP Switch ON for the ports using management (in this
example it is the OPTICS (or UPLINK) 3 = ON and EXT MGMT 1 = ON).
2. Set Transparent Mode to allow both tagged and untagged traffic to pass:
a. In the Main Configuration screen, press the Space Bar and type config.
The Configuration screen displays:
Transparent Mode – with either (not both) Data and Optics Mgmt dipswitches
set to on, all traffic passes between Optics and Data port EXCEPT what has
been defined as the Management Domain. The Management Domain can either be
defined as untagged traffic or traffic with a specified VLAN ID.
In Transparent Mode with BOTH Optics and Data Mgmt dipswitches set to off,
all traffic passes between the Optics and Data Ports.
Default Mode – the unit passes only Untagged Packets.
The unit is currently in Default Mode.
Enter Y for Transparent Mode, N for no Transparent Mode or <enter> to

e. Ensure Are VLAN Tags required on the EXT Port? is set to N.
37
f. Press S or F3 to save the settings. This will set all traffic with VLAN ID 7
as management.
g. Type Reboot.
Now the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II is configured to pass all data between the
OPTICS (or UPLINK) and DATA ports except that which is tagged with VLAN ID
7. All data tagged with VLAN ID 7 is considered management traffic and passes
from the OPTICS (or UPLINK) port to the EXT MGMT port only. The iMcV-GigaFiberLinX-II is configured to receive untagged data from the twisted pair EXT
MGMT port and add the VLAN ID 7 before sending it out of the OPTICS (or
UPLINK) port. In this mode the EXT MGMT port provides a secure link to the
management port at the other end of the fiber line.

Mode Four-Transparency with Extra Tagging (Q-in-Q)
Transparent with Extra Tagging mode can add an extra tag to data received on
the DATA port. By using Extra Tagging in a Host/Remote iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
pair, all data received on the Remote iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II DATA port can be
extra-tagged and sent out of the Host iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II DATA port with a
unique tag for identification in the Host cloud. In the reverse direction the extra
38
tag is removed before sending the data out of the Remote iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
DATA port.
To configure this mode, perform the following:
Set the Extra Tag Mode on both of the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules:
1.
In the Main Configuration screen, press the Space Bar and type config.
The Configuration screen displays:
Transparent Mode – with either (not both) Data and Optics Mgmt dipswitches
set to on, all traffic passes between Optics and Data port EXCEPT what has
been defined as the Management Domain. The Management Domain can either be
defined as untagged traffic or traffic with a specified VLAN ID.
In Transparent Mode with BOTH Optics and Data Mgmt dipswitches set to off,
all traffic passes between the Optics and Data Ports.
Default Mode – the unit passes only Untagged Packets.
The unit is currently in Default Mode.
Enter Y for Transparent Mode, N for no Transparent Mode or <enter> to
move to other options [ Y ]
2.
Enter Y in the Transparent Mode field and press any key (except S or Q) to
open the Transparent Mode Setup screen.

DATA port.
5.
Select the Extra Tag TPID EtherType (optional).
6.
Press S or F3 to save the settings.
7.
Type Reboot. Repeat steps for second module.
Now the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II Host/Remote pair is configured to pass only
VLAN ID 8 data from the Host iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II to the Remote iMcV-GigaFiberLinX-II where the VLAN ID 8 tag is removed before sending the data out of
the Remote DATA port. The Extra Tag VLAN ID 8 is added to all data received
on the Remote DATA port before being sent to the Host iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
where the VLAN ID 8 tag remains on the data leaving the Host DATA port.

Now the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II is configured to pass only VLAN ID 13 from the
OPTICS (or UPLINK) port to the DATA port. Untagged packets arriving at the
DATA port (Tags = N) receive a tag (VLAN ID = 13) before being sent out of the
OPTICS (or UPLINK) port. The VLAN ID number used for a port must be
different than the number used for the Management VLAN ID.

Management of a host unit through the external port requires an IP address on
the host unit. A remote unit connected over the fiber link is managed through the
local unit using internal IP-less communication. If direct IP management of
remote units is required, then DIP switch #3 must be ON and the remote must
have an IP address.

Mode Six-Port VLAN Filter
The VLAN filter mode allows isolating a segment of the network to only accept
data using some or all of the 32 available VLAN IDs.
To configure this mode, do the following:
1.
In the Main Configuration screen, press the Space Bar and type config.
The Configuration screen displays:
Transparent Mode – with either (not both) Data and Optics Mgmt dipswitches
set to on, all traffic passes between Optics and Data port EXCEPT what has
been defined as the Management Domain. The Management Domain can either be
defined as untagged traffic or traffic with a specified VLAN ID.
In Transparent Mode with BOTH Optics and Data Mgmt dipswitches set to off,
all traffic passes between the Optics and Data Ports.
Default Mode – the unit passes only Untagged Packets.
The unit is currently in Default Mode.
Enter Y for Transparent Mode, N for no Transparent Mode or <enter> to
move to other options [ N ]

Troubleshooting
•
If two iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II Host/Remote units are not communicating
properly, make sure one is a Host and the other is a Remote. If the second
unit is not configured as a Remote, it will be recognized as a Standalone unit
and the Host and Remote units will not communicate with each other
properly. Setting the OPTICS (or UPLINK) port management DIP Switch #3
to the ON position on both modules will allow performing a simple ping test.
This is possible only if pinging from the computer through the optics uplink
port, which is highly unusual. The EXT or data switch must be enabled and
connected to the computer to ping either device.
•
If a link on a twisted pair port cannot be established, make sure the cable is
in working order; if not, replace the cable (iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II includes
AutoCross; a link should be detected regardless of the Cat5 cable type).
•
If a fiber link cannot be established, make sure that the fiber transceivers on
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II are not over/under driving the fiber receivers. For
fiber specifications, please visit www.bb-elec.com. Make sure the fiber
mode and wavelength on both iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II units match (i.e., both
are 1310 nm single-mode fiber).
•
Make sure the port speeds on iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II match those on the
end devices connected to iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II. B&B Electronics
recommends configuring all connected devices to Auto Negotiation, or if
using Force mode, ensure speed and duplex settings match.
•
If using single-strand fiber, make sure the pair of devices is compatible
single-strand fiber devices. For example, an iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
TX/SSFX-SM1310-SC which transmits 1310 nm and receives 1550 nm must
be connected to a device which transmits 1550 nm and receives 1310 nm.
•
If using an iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II unit with an SFP port and it is not
functioning properly or at all, make sure that the installed SFP module is the
correct speed (1000 Mbps).
•
When using the FiberAlert feature, make sure that FiberAlert is enabled on
only one unit when connecting two iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II units, or when
connecting an iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II to another B&B Electronics media
converter which includes the FiberAlert feature.
•
If management is not functioning properly, make sure that the DIP Switch
settings are accurate for the port to be managed.
47
•
To restore the unit to factory default settings, use the cleandb function via
the serial port (refer to the Device-Specific Options from the Command Line
section for more information). This is especially helpful if the module may
have been configured improperly. If restarting to factory defaults is
necessary, B&B Electronics recommends using this function on both units in
Host/Remote applications, then reconfiguring all settings.
•
Ensure READ/WRITE Community Strings for iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II and
iView² are the same.
•
Ensure none of the twisted-pair ports on the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II are
connected to the twisted-pair port on the iMediaCenter chassis or the
management module in an iMediaChassis series chassis.

Fiber Optic Cleaning Guidelines
Fiber Optic transmitters and receivers are extremely susceptible to contamination
by particles of dirt or dust, which can obstruct the optic path and cause
performance degradation. Good system performance requires clean optics and
connector ferrules.
1.
Use fiber patch cords (or connectors, as appropriate) only from a reputable
supplier; low-quality components can cause many hard-to-diagnose
problems in an installation.
2.
Dust caps are installed at B&B Electronics to ensure factory-clean optical
devices. These protective caps should not be removed until the moment of
connecting the fiber cable to the device. Should it be necessary to
disconnect the fiber device, reinstall the protective dust caps.
3.
Store spare caps in a dust-free environment such as a sealed plastic bag or
box so that when reinstalled they do not introduce any contamination to the
optics.
4.
If it is suspected that the optics have been contaminated, alternate between
blasting with clean, dry, compressed air and flushing with methanol to
remove particles of dirt.
54
Electrostatic Discharge Precautions
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause damage to any product, add-in modules
or stand alone units containing electronic components. Always observe the
following precautions when installing or handling these kinds of products
1.
Do not remove unit from its protective packaging until ready to install.
2.
Wear an ESD wrist grounding strap before handling any module or
component. If the wrist strap is not available, maintain grounded contact
with the system unit throughout any procedure requiring ESD protection.
3.
Hold the units by the edges; do not touch the electronic components or gold
connectors.
4.
After removal, always place the boards on a grounded, static-free surface,
ESD pad or in a proper ESD bag. Do not slide the modules or stand alone
units over any surface.
WARNING! Integrated circuits and fiber optic components are
extremely susceptible to electrostatic discharge damage. Do not
handle these components directly unless you are a qualified
service technician and use tools and techniques that conform to
accepted industry practices.
