IMC Networks iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II, TX/SFP (1x SFP/1250-ED Module)
SNMP-Manageable Optical Ethernet Demarcation Unit
10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
An Optical Demarcation Unit Enabling Delivery of
Transparent LAN Services while Providing Carrier-Grade
Management and Line Provisioning Capabilities.
Service providers who provide customers with Transparent LAN services
must be able to remotely manage their customer premises equipment while
keeping management and customer data traffic completely separated.
Designed to meet the needs of service providers and administrators of
enterprise campus networks, Giga-FiberLinX-II provisions point-to-point fiber
optic connections and provides a unique management tool to monitor the
entire link between two locations.
Field-proven worldwide since 1999, the Giga-FiberLinX-II system
is ideal for Optical Ethernet, FTTx and campus area network
The Giga-FiberLinX-II solution connects two remote networks over fiber optics
and allows administrators to observe both the end-points, and the fiber link
between them, as single management entities and not as separate elements.
Host management traffic is not visible to the remote or customer network
nor is access to the customer network required, guaranteeing end-to-end
data integrity. Giga-FiberLinX-II allows for remote configuration and alerts
administrators to any potential problems on the long-haul fiber run,
provides vital information on link condition and reports data traffic statistics.
In addition, it reduces the total cost of network equipment by functioning as
a copper-to-fiber media converter, allowing deployment of lower cost copper
switches at both ends of the fiber connection.
Offering unparalleled flexibility, Giga-FiberLinX-II supports multiple fiber types
including multi-mode and single-mode as well as single-strand fiber which
can effectively double the capacity of installed fiber.
The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II features:
1000 Mbps fiber data port
10/100/1000 twisted pair data port
additional 10/100/1000 twisted pair port (TX EXT) for management
serial port with DB-9 connector
Twisted pair ports auto-negotiate speed and duplex or can be set manually.
Ports also feature Flow Control in FDX and Back Pressure Flow Control.
Two models are also available with SFP ports, allowing users to easily accommodate changing fiber requirements; simply install a new SFP module rather than
replacing an entire Giga-FiberLinX-II unit.
Secure and flexible solution
• Preserves complete end-to-end fiber connection and data integrity via SNMP
• All management traffic remains isolated
from the remote LAN
• IEEE 802.1Q VLAN and 802.1p compliant
• VLAN-tagging and Q-in-Q (double-tagging)
segregates customer traffic
Features and functionality
• Transparency feature allows VLAN/nonVLAN traffic on same port
• Provides differential priority
• Remotely configure settings
• LinkLoss and FiberAlert and loopback functionality for troubleshooting
Minimizes networking costs
• Avoid unnecessary service calls
• When using Giga-FiberLinX-II in pairs,
deploy less expensive copper switches at
both ends
End-to-End Solution

Office applications and Giga-FiberLinX-II

Easy to configure and manage with GUIbased iView²

Full-Featured Giga-FiberLinX-II
From a central location, network operators are able to receive real-time device and traffic statistics on the remote
CPE, allocate bandwidth, turn services on or off, initiate loopback testing, change customer VLAN settings and adjust
QoS policies assigned to different traffic types.
• Management Port and VLAN Functionality — Having a
separate management port as well as VLAN compliance
keeps customer data and SNMP traffic separated.
• Loopback Testing functionality loops back all frames
arriving on the fiber port (except for the device’s
management traffic). When in Loopback mode, the
Giga-FiberLinX-II drops the link on the twisted pair port.
• Troubleshooting Features — FiberAlert and LinkLoss
along with LEDs assist in diagnosing potential problems
on fiber optic networks.
• Supports the Unified Management Agent (UMA) —
Giga-FiberLinX-II has always supported Host/Remote
environments, i.e. managing the Remote from the Host
location. With UMA, the central location can manage all
devices installed in an iMediaChassis with the single IP
address of the chassis.
Using the VLAN Functionality on Giga-FiberLinX-II
Service providers routinely use IEEE 802.1Q Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tagging to secure, separate and differentiate
customer traffic. The Giga-FiberLinX-II enables service providers to support multiple VLAN-based applications.
IEEE 802.1Q VLAN compatible.
Valid VLAN IDs are 1 to 4,094.
Port-based VLAN tagging.
Transparency Mode passes all data and respects the
VLAN tag or lack thereof, i.e. allows a mixture of VLAN
Tagged and Untagged traffic.
• Configure to support VLAN trunking; the Giga-FiberLinX-II
Application Examples
Typical Application— Dual Giga-FiberLinX-II
When used in pairs, a Giga-FiberLinX-II configured
as a Host resides at the head-end while another
Giga-FiberLinX-II, configured as a Remote, installs
at the remote customer location, typically on the
network edge where the customer network meets
the service provider infrastructure. Via SNMP, the
Giga-FiberLinX-II solution monitors the entire link and
ensures data integrity while remaining isolated and
completely transparent to the customer LAN.
Typical Application— Single Giga-FiberLinX-II
A single Giga-FiberLinX-II can be used as a singlesolution (CPE) application. Install a Giga-FiberLinX-II at
the customer’s network edge and configure the device
as a standalone. Connect the Giga-FiberLinX-II to a
media converter at the central office or directly to a
fiber switch. Manage the Giga-FiberLinX-II from the
central office.
can trunk up to 32 VLAN IDs for data, plus an additional
for SNMP (Transparency Mode disabled).
• IEEE 802.1p provides a 2-tier queue for differential prioritization of inbound and outbound traffic especially
beneficial for traffic requiring high priority (e.g. VoIP; this
traffic is serviced first).
SNMP Management Made Easy
FiberLinX modules features an SNMP management agent for monitoring the status and activity on copper and fiber
ports at the remote end. Perform initial setup of the unit and modifications in the field via: iView² SNMP application,
Telnet/TFTP, or local serial connection.
Enable features and change configuration settings from central office.
Remote upgrades via Telnet/TFTP, serial port or mgt. software.
Monitor both units and the fiber in between.
Receive real-time monitoring and statistics.
Create a secure management domain to isolate management
domain broadcasts from TX Data ports on both units.
• User-definable unit/port descriptions and information.
