The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II media converter solution
connects a host/remote network over fiber optics
with bandwidth up to 1000 Mbps over both the
Copper and the Fiber Ports. Building on the success
of the original FiberLinX solutions, the iMcV-GigaFiberLinX-II offers 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet, an
advanced-feature set for network management and
troubleshooting functions, including Extra-Tagging
With the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II, administrators can
observe 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 endto-end data integrity.
iMcV-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.
Application Example - Dual iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II Solution
When used in pairs, a iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II configured as a Host resides at the
head-end while another iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II, configured as a Remote, installs at
the customer location, typically on the network edge where a customer network
meets the service provider infrastructure. Via SNMP, iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
monitors the entire link and ensures data integrity while remaining isolated and
completely transparent to the customer LAN.

VLAN Functionality on iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
Service providers routinely use IEEE 802.1Q Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tagging to secure, separate and differentiate
customer traffic. iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II enables service providers to support multiple VLAN-based applications.
• IEEE 802.1Q VLAN compatible
• Configure to support VLAN trunking; iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
can trunk up to 32 VLAN IDs for data, plus an additional
ID for SNMP (Transparency Mode disabled)
• 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
• IEEE 802.1p provides a 2-tier queue for differential
prioritization of inbound and outbound traffic. For
example, VoIP applications can be assigned a higher
priority than data traffic
VLAN Tagging and Extra-Tagging
Support for IEEE 802.1Q Extra Tagging, also known as Q-in-Q, allows the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II to more effectively
route network VLAN traffic. Extra tagging simplifies management and configuration efforts for service providers who
have customers using a range of VLAN IDs for different applications. Routing guidelines and other traffic rules can be
programmed based on the extra tag, rather than being programmed for all of the potentially hundreds of individual VLAN
IDs. Also, since a service provider’s customers control their own internal VLAN settings, the extra tag is needed to make
sure there is no overlap of VLAN IDs among customers, and to prevent traffic from different customers from becoming
mixed. The extra tag is removed once the traffic is routed to its correct destination, a process that is transparent to
Application Example - Single Remote Solution
A single iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II can be used as a single-solution (CPE) application. Install the sole iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
at the customer’s network edge and configure the device as a standalone. Connect the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II to a media
converter at the central office or directly to a fiber switch. Manage the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II from the central office.

SNMP Management Made Easy
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II 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 iView²
• Monitor both units and the fiber in between
• Receive real-time monitoring and statistics
• Change bandwidth “on-the-fly” up to 1000 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
Full-Featured iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
From a central location, network operators are able to receive real-time device and traffic statistics on the remote CPE or
other devices connected to the remote management port, allocate bandwidth, turn services on or off, initiate loopback
testing, change customer VLAN settings and adjust QoS policies assigned to different traffic types.
Dedicated Management Port
The EXT MGMT port on the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II provides
the ability to physically isolate the management domain
from the data domain, allowing users to manage edge
devices and beyond while protecting the management
domain from unwanted access.
Troubleshooting Features
FiberAlert and LinkLoss along with LEDs assist in diagnosing
potential problems on fiber optic networks. Additionally,
RMON and IFSTAT statistics are available.
Loopback Testing
Loops back all frames arriving on fiber port (except for the
device’s management traffic). When in Loopback mode,
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II drops the link on the twisted pair port.
Bandwidth Limiting
With bandwidth throttling Network Operators can control
customer bandwidth offering a range of revenue generating
Supports the Unified Management Agent (UMA)
The Unified Management Agent (UMA) allows users to
manage all iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II modules installed in an
IMC Networks iMediaChassis (and any connected remote
modules) with a single IP address from a central location,
conserving precious IP addresses. Additionally, UMA allows
users to centrally manage and administer firmware upgrades
over multiple devices, saving time.
Offering unparalleled flexibility, iMcV-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. Two Gigabit SFP ports available for
WAN and LAN side fiber or copper SFP modules (SERDES and SGMII); SERDES (1000 Mbps), SGMII (10/100/1000 Mbps).
Choose from one of three different versions:
• One Gigabit Fiber WAN port, and one 10/100/1000 Mbps Twisted pair (RJ-45) LAN port (DATA)*
• One Gigabit SFP WAN port, ideal for either a fiber or copper SFP module, and one 10/100/1000 Mbps Twisted
pair (RJ-45) LAN port (DATA)*
• Two Gigabit SFP ports for WAN and LAN side fiber or copper SFP modules
Each version includes a 10/100/1000 twisted pair port (EXT MGMT) for management (can also function as a serial port) .
* For the two versions with a DATA port, the iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II provides auto-negotiation, automatic crossover
detection, full or half duplex and selective advertising. The DATA port also features Flow Control in Full Duplex Mode
(FDX) and Back Pressure Flow Control.
