About the IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4
Overview
The IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 is a media converter that transports four independent E1 lines
over an existing standard 155Mbps-capable fiber optic line operating at an effective
rate of 150Mbps. A second SFP port is available for a 1+1 protection mode. One
serial link (RS-232) and one Ethernet (10/100BaseT) connection are also multiplexed
onto the fiber link(s). Each of these communication channels is transported end-toend at full wire speed with very low latencies.
The serial link can be used for extending an independent RS-232 interface to the
remote Points of Presence (POP) location for use in managing or controlling other
devices at the POP and supports any data rate up to 120K baud. In addition, each
unit also supports an RS-232 console port for local configuration by technical support
personnel. Both of these serial links are used for end-to-end system management,
fault detection /isolation and system diagnostics. The remote serial offers serial only.
The IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 provides fault indications on the E1 and fiber links resulting
from real-time active faults. The equipment detects both E1 and fiber LOS events as
well as degraded E1 or fiber lines. The unit will automatically forward AIS signaling to
the remote unit after detecting an LOS (Loss Of Signal) condition on any incoming E1
line. Severe receive optical link failures will result in the automatic generation of AIS
signaling onto the E1 lines connected to the unit receiving the corrupted optical
signal.
In addition, CV (Code Violation) errors are detected on all incoming E1 lines and BER
calculations for the optical line are constantly being performed by circuitry within the
unit's optical receiver. Error conditions are displayed on the unit’s front panel LED
indicators and reported to system management software (if equipped) where more
detailed error information can be displayed on the user’s GUI (SNMP).
Systems equipped with 1+1 fiber redundancy can benefit from the enhanced
reliability of a protected fiber link and the system’s ability to automatically switch to
the “best” fiber line should one line become impaired or fail. This automatic
switchover capability is designed to occur rapidly (<50 milliseconds), minimizing data
loss and system down time. In addition, automatic switchover can be overridden;
this allows the end-user to force the unit to receive on a specific optical line if desired
for testing.

Installation Instructions
Configuration Options
Each IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 module requires two adjacent slots in an iMediaChassis or
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 slots. Secure the
module to the chassis by tightening the captive screw.
All IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 units are shipped from the factory configured as Host units.
The IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 modules must be installed in pairs. For two IE-iMcV-E1Mux/4 units to properly operate together one unit needs to be configured as a
Remote. Configuration as a Host or Remote is controlled via a DIP switch setting (S11). If installing in a managed chassis, set the card in the managed chassis as a HOST.
The following sections describe the configurable features.
Use the "default" command to restore the unit's default settings. This restores the
card's default configuration and resets the default username and password.
User: admin / Password: admin
Ethernet Line Setup
If the Ethernet port is not used, it can be set to disabled via a console session or via
iView², to effectively block all traffic on this port.
Packet Size
Small Form-Factor Pluggable Ports (SFP)
The Ethernet transport can accommodate packets up to 1916 bytes.
The fiber link on the IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 module is supported through one SFP
running at 155Mbps. The second SFP port can act as a redundant line. Many SFPs,
including those from B&B Electronics, feature enhanced diagnostics capabilities
DDMI (Data and Diagnostic Management Information). DDMI statistics provide realtime access to transceiver operating parameters such as voltage, temperature, laser
bias current, and both transmitted and received optical power. DDMI information
can be accessed in iView2.
Auto Negotiation
AutoCross Feature
The 10/100BaseT Ethernet port on the IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 includes an AutoCross
feature that automatically selects between a crossover workstation and a straightthrough connection depending on the connected device.
The IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 ships from the factory with Auto Negotiation enabled on the
Ethernet port. In this mode, the port negotiates for speed, duplex and flow control.
Forcing the Speed, Duplex Mode, and Flow Control
The Ethernet port on the IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 can be selectively advertised or manually
forced for 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps operation at Half- or Full-Duplex (i.e., 10 Mbps
Full-Duplex, 10 Mbps Half-Duplex, 100 Mbps Full-Duplex, etc.). Flow control can
also be enabled on the Ethernet port when the connecting equipment supports this.
These features can be enabled through iView² or the serial port.
FX LinkLoss and LFPT
During normal operation, link integrity pulses are transmitted by all point-to-point
Ethernet devices. When an IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 receives valid link pulses, it knows that
the device to which it is connected is up, and that the cable coming from that device
is intact. The appropriate “LNK” (link) LED is lit to indicate this. However, these
signals are not normally transmitted across a normal store and forward Ethernet bridge
function. A failed Ethernet line on one end of the fiber link is not forwarded to the
Ethernet port at the other end of the optical transport. A failed optical line is also not
normally forwarded to the Ethernet port. The FX LinkLoss and LFPT functions are
used to enable these features.
For troubleshooting information utilizing the FX LinkLoss and LFPT features of the IEiMcV-E1-Mux/4 modules, refer to Troubleshooting at the end of this manual.
Both the LinkLoss and LFPT features are set to "Disabled" by default.
11
12
FX LinkLoss (FXLL)
Loopback
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. FX LinkLoss can be
enabled in iView².
Link Fault Pass-Through (LFPT)
Link Fault Pass-Through (LFPT) is a troubleshooting feature that passes a link fault from
the Ethernet port on one module through to the Ethernet port on the other module.
LFPT can be enabled via iView² or through the console port.
The link fault is passed through the media conversion and is observed at each end. It
acts just as it would if the end devices were directly connected without a fiber link.
E1 Ports Setup
Alarm Level
E1 lines are defined as LOST when no signal is received as defined by ITU G.775
specifications LOS, and are considered in error with a BER of 10^-6. If either of
these conditions lasts for more than 2.5 seconds, an ALARM state is declared. This
error condition must be absent for 10 seconds for the alarm state to clear.
The starting and ending event of all alarm conditions will generate an SNMP TRAP
when the unit is installed in a managed chassis and set to the IS state. During initial
installation or normal maintenance, the end-user can place the unit in the OOS (OutOf-Service) state to inhibit unwanted SNMP TRAP alarms.
Last Gasp
Each E1 port can be tested in loopback mode by enabling either a Host loopback or
Remote loopback test path. This capability allows the end-user to help troubleshoot
and isolate system problems such as improper/broken line terminations, cables or
malfunctioning equipment.
With Host loopback, the E1 copper port, connected to the Host unit, is looped back
to that port within the local unit. E1 data coming from the remote unit to that port
over the optical link is also looped back to the remote unit at the same point within
the local unit.
With remote loopback, an E1 line connected to the Host unit is transported onto the
optical link and looped back within the remote unit back onto the optical link
without passing onto the copper E1 line of the remote unit. The remote’s incoming
E1 copper line is also looped-back to the copper line within the remote unit.
The default value for loopback is "none."
Console Screens
Configuration Using the Console Port
The following section describes configuration using the console screens. The Remote
module is only configured through the Host.
Login Screen
This feature alerts the end user if power to the device fails, and is permanently
enabled. Since the IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 modules must be installed as a Host/Remote
pair, the Host will report a power failure by sending an alarm trap to management.
The Host will maintain the Last Gasp alarm state until it can verify that power has
been restored.
After running through an initial self test, the log-in screen is displayed (the diagnostic
information displayed below is for illustration purposes only and may differ from the
actual screen display):
Unit Service State
When selecting In-Service, Traps reporting is enabled. If Out-of-Service is selected,
Traps reporting is disabled. A Trap is sent when the status is changed from
Enabled/Disabled or Disabled/Enabled.
E1 Port Equipment
Within each E1 port setup, the state of the port can be set to equip or not-equipped.
When set to not-equipped, the end user has the ability to perform maintenance on
the line without impacting the other parts on the module.

The username is case sensitive with a maximum length of 16 characters. After a
username is entered, the system prompts the end-user for a password.
14
Unit Configuration Screen
Password is case sensitive with a maximum length of 16 characters. After the system
validates the username and password, the Main Menu is displayed.
Main Menu
The unit configuration screen displays the names of the Host and Remote units as
well as the service state, whether fiber protection is enabled and the SFP BER alarm
level. In addition, the unit time can be set from this screen and the username and
password can be set/reset.
From the main menu, the end-user can view essential unit configuration data—
including active alarms in order of importance—and a clock indicating when the
displayed information was last refreshed.
The screen displays the current status for items 1 through 8. For security reasons, the
current username and password are not displayed.
For items 1 through 8, enter the number of the menu item to be changed, and then

the line without impacting the other parts on the module.
21

All IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 units are shipped configured as Host units via DIP
Switch #1 = OFF. The Remote unit should be set to DIP Switch #1 = ON.
Be sure to confirm that the IE-iMcV-E1-Mux/4 card is set correctly when
used.

The fiber transport is independent of all other ports and should be
established first. If this is not possible, a physical fiber loopback can be used
for fiber port verification. A fiber loopback will cause all connected ports to
loop back their respected data.

If the fiber is not connected, all E1 ports will send the all-ones, AIS signal.
This can be physically looped back to verify E1 port operation.
22
Fiber Optic Port Verification
E1 Port Verification
As a troubleshooting aid, the fiber optic ports can be verified by placing a physical
loopback optical line on the ports and verify the LED behavior as shown:
The ACT LED will be configured to either the A or B fiber line as the active line. The
RAI LED is RED/GREEN indicating that there is something wrong at the far end of the
fiber line (in this case, the remote unit is missing). The ALARM LED is RED because
the E1 port is not connected. The STAT LED is RED when there is no fiber link but
turns GREEN when the fiber link is valid.
By placing a physical loopback connection on the E1 port, a valid signal can be
detected by each individual E1 port to verify its operation. Without the fiber looped,
the ALARM LED for the looped E1 port will show RED/GREEN indicating there is a
problem at the far end of the fiber transport (In this case the far end unit is missing)
and the STAT LED is RED because the fiber is in LOS. With the fiber looped, the E1
port will only show a normal GREEN STAT LED.
NOTE
The E1 ports are all sending AIS. However, with the fiber looped, it is because of
the LOS on the E1 port. Without the fiber looped, it is because of the LOS of the
fiber port.
WARNING
An optical loopback will also loop back the Ethernet port. If the network cannot

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.
2.
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.
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.

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.

Definition of Terms/Acronyms
The following are terms and phrases used within this manual (shown in italics), or
which are found in documents associated with this equipment.
1+1
AIS
The Term “1+1” refers to line protection where identical
information is transmitted on two redundant lines. The Receiver
chooses the “best” line to use based on the BER of the line.
Alarm Indication Signal: Used in E1 signaling, the AIS is a
predetermined bit stream (all ones) that is transmitted (forwarded)
upon the loss of an incoming E1 signal or when the E1 signal is
disrupted.
AN
Auto Negotiation: A signaling protocol used by an Ethernet PHY to
determine the characteristics (speed, duplex mode) of its “link
partner” and configure itself automatically
BER
Bit Error Rate: The percentage of bits with errors divided by the
total number of bits that have been transmitted, received or
processed over a one second time period.
CLI
Command Line Interface: An interface screen, often DOS-based,
used for system management and diagnostics requiring the user to
type commands rather than use a GUI.
CV
Code Violation: An anomaly of a decoded physical-layer signal
stream resulting in coding (signaling) error(s). Noise bursts or
intermittent connections on a link are the usual causes of code
violations; an HDB3 coding error.
DDMI
Digital Diagnostic Monitor Interface: A defined serial interface and
data format typically used to access SFP internal information
FFL
GUI
Fiber Fault Loopback: When the fiber line fails, the Ethernet port
that is being forwarded over the fiber line is forced out of LINK.
Similar to the Fiber Alert function.
Graphical User Interface: Software that provides a visual interface
to enable an end-user to manage and monitor network devices.
HDB3
High Density Bipolar 3 Coding: A physical-layer signal encoding
scheme defined for E1 transmission which ensures sufficient
signaling transitions for robust clock/data recovery.
IS
In-Service stat is the normal state of an active port with normal
error reporting.
29
LED
Light Emitting Diode: A small stack of lights to indicate link,
duplex or other options.
LFPT
Link Fault Pass-Through: LFPT can be enabled via iView² or
through the console port.
LOF
Loss Of Frame: An error condition where the receiver/decoder
misses detection of the framing signal.
LOS
Loss Of Signal: An error condition where the receiving line
interface unit does not detect a signal.
MDI/MDIX
Media-Dependent Interface/ Media-Dependent Interface
Crossover. The ability of an Ethernet port to automatically detect
and configure its cabling connections to accommodate crossover
or non-crossover wiring, depending on its link partner and cabling.
MIB
Management Information Base: A database of objects that can be
monitored by a network management system. Both SNMP and
RMON use standardized MIB formats that allow any SNMP and
RMON tools to monitor any device defined by a MIB.
MSA
Multi-Source Agreement (SFP): The standard an SFP must meet to
be compatible in network devices.
OOS
Out-Of-Service, OOS is used by the CRAFT personnel to turn OFF
the alarm reporting so they can service the line without causing
alarm TRAPS to be sent to the NOC Center. The LEDs display a
line status but do not report any line related alarms back to the
NOC. A card removal or insertion is still reported, but a PORT
up/down or changes to its configuration are not.
POP
Point(s) Of Presence: The demarcation point where carrier owned
equipment is located at the customer site.
RAI
Remote Alarm Indication: Status information received from the
line indicating there is an alarm condition at the far end of the
transport.
SFP
Small Form-Factor Pluggable: An industry standard optical
pluggable module.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol: A set of protocols for
managing complex networks over a standards-based IP network.
