About the IE-iMcV-MultiWay
The IE-iMcV-MultiWay is an SNMP manageable modular device providing
two fixed 10/100/1000Base-T copper ports and 2 SFP ports. The SFP
ports support fiber or copper SFPs. As a plug and play device, the IEiMcV-MultiWay provides several distinct modes of operation to support a
wide range of applications. The IE-iMcV-MultiWay provides OAM
functionality with 802.3ah (LINK-OAM ah) and 802.1ag (SERVICE-OAM
ag) supported on each port. It supports jumbo frame sizes of up to
10,240 bytes as well as AutoCross on the copper ports. As an Industrial
Ethernet device, it supports an extended temperature range of -40°C to
+85°C. A console port and a DIP Switch bay provide configuration
options.
The IE-iMcV-MultiWay module is a single-wide module. It can be
installed in the following chassis:
•
•
•
MediaChassis series
IE-MediaChassis series
iMediaChassis series
The IE-iMcV-MultiWay requires two small form-factor (SFP) modules
which provide greater flexibility in the network environment. The hotswappable nature of the SFPs, available in dual strand for Multi Mode and
Single Mode, and single strand fiber types for Single Mode, allow for easy
configuration and future upgrading as network demands evolve. The SFP
modules must be MSA-compliant and both DDMI and non-DDMI are
supported. The fiber SFP can support 100Mbps or 1000Mbps; while the
copper SFPs support 10/100/1000Mbps and 1000Mbps.
SFPs are sold separately by B&B Electronicss and meet Class 1 Laser
Safety Standard.
IE-iMcV-MultiWay Features and Configuration
The IE-iMcV-MultiWay offers a full feature set including Auto Negotiation,
Selective Advertising, AutoCross, VLANs, SNMP management, loopback
testing and OAM. Unit software updates can be downloaded through TFTP
or iView2 (iConfig view).
IE-iMcV-MultiWay features include:

The IE-iMcV-MultiWay can be installed as a standalone CPE device, back
to back, or as a Remote when connected to an iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II
configured as a Host.
As a CPE device, the IE-iMcV-MultiWay can behave as a remote to an
iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II host when:
1) The iMcV-Giga-FiberLinX-II:
• Is connected via the SFP ports on the IE-iMcV-MultiWay
• Is configured as a Host
• Uses firmware version A1 860-00D1 or higher
2) The SNMP card (if present):
• Uses SNMP firmware version 953-00D0 or higher
3) The IE-iMcV-MultiWay:
• Uses firmware version 123-00A1 or higher
When using iView2, the IE-iMcV-MultiWay can be fully managed without
an IP address using a secure management channel. However, an IP
2
address can be assigned through iView2 (iConfig view), the CLI or Telnet
using the default IP address of 10.10.10.10.
Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM)
OAM is a general term used in network management and is typically
applied to a series of standard protocols for installing, monitoring, and
troubleshooting Metropolitan Area Networks.
When applied to Ethernet – OAM is typically assumed to refer to the layer
2 (MAC layer), management protocols, specifically 802.3ah and 802.1ag.
Layer 2 management protocols do not need higher level transport
protocols to operate, OAM data is transferred in standard multicast
Ethernet frames.
802.3ah OAM:
Is a point-to-point protocol designed to verify a
specific link between two directly connected devices
(over copper or fiber), which support 802.3ah OAM.
One device must be configured to be an active OAM
device, the other a passive (typically the core switch
would be the active device, the end device passive).
802.3ah OAM provides link status, remote fault
detection and the ability to initiate a loopback circuit.
802.1ag:
Often referred to as Connectivity Fault Management
(CFM), is an end-to-end protocol designed to verify a
specific network path between two devices that may
well be in different geographical locations. CFM allows
the network operator to administer, monitor and debug
the network using continuity check (a heart beat
message), link trace (similar to traceroot, but operating
at the MAC layer) and finally loopback (can be likened to
a layer 2 ping).

iView² Management Software
iView² is the B&B Electronicss management software that features a
Graphical User Interface (GUI) and gives network managers the ability to
monitor and control the manageable B&B Electronicss products.
iView² is available in several versions, including a WebServer version 3.0,
and can also function as a snap-in module for HP OpenView Network
Node Manager and other third party SNMP Management software. For
assistance in selecting the right version of iView² for a specific operating
system, please visit:
http://www.bb-elec.com
iView2 supports the following platforms:
• Windows 2000
• Windows XP
• Windows Vista
• Windows 7
Please see the SNMP Management Module manual for software
configuration options.
iView2 (iConfig view)
iView2 (iConfig view) is an in-band utility created by B&B Electronicss,
used for SNMP configuration for B&B Electronicss’ SNMP-manageable
devices.
The iView2 (iConfig view) feature allows the following to be performed:
•
•
Set an IP address, subnet mask and default gateway
Define community strings and SNMP Traps
iView2 (iConfig view) also includes an authorized IP address system and
restricted access to MIB groups which are supported by B&B Electronicss’
manageable devices. These extra layers of security do not affect SNMP
compatibility. iView2 (iConfig view) can upload new versions of the
system software and new MIB information. It also includes diagnostic
capabilities for faster resolution of technical support issues.

DIP Switch Selectable Mode Configuration
The IE-iMcV-MultiWay can be configured in one of the following ways via
DIP Switch settings (see page Error! Bookmark not defined.):
Configuration
Method
Description
4-Port Switch
(default)
In this mode, the unit acts as a standard 4-port MAClayer switch.
1+1 SFP
Protection
NonRevertive
mode
In this mode, the "SFP A" port (fiber or copper) is
connected through the switch to the drop ports as the
main link. The "SFP B" port (fiber or copper) is active into
the MAC switch, but no connection inside the switch is
made; in this way, the "SFP B" line is held as the standby
line. The "SFP B" line is held in the LINK state for testing
and line verification, but does not actively carry user
data.
Dual
Converter
mode
1+1 SFP
Protection
Revertive
mode
In this mode, the unit functions as two independent (SFP
to TX) media converters and traffic never passes between
the two converters.
When a fault is detected on the active line, all customer
traffic is switched to the “SFP B” port. With nonRevertive mode data is not resumed by “SFP A” port until
SFP B fails or is disconnected.
In this mode, the "SFP A" port (fiber or copper) is
connected through the switch to the drop ports as the
main link. The "SFP B" port (fiber or copper) is active into
the MAC switch, but no connection inside the switch is
made; in this way, the "SFP B" line is held as the standby
line. The "SFP B" line is held in the LINK state for testing
and line verification, but does not actively carry user
data.
When a fault is detected on the active line, all customer
traffic is switched to the “SFP B” port. Once the “A” port
is no longer in a fault condition, data is resumed on that
port.
NOTE
Revertive and Non-Revertive modes can only operate on the ports with SFPs, not
the fixed copper ports.

Space Bar = Opens the device specific configuration options screen.
*The screens illustrated in this manual show capabilities for users
with Admin rights. Individuals with User-level rights can only view
port status and port settings, change their password, end a session,
and reboot the unit.
NOTE
It is necessary to reboot the IEiMcV--MultiWay after making any modifications
to the Saved Values for the changes to take effect. To reboot, type Reboot at
the prompt on the Main Configuration screen.
Assigning IP Information
To modify the Saved Parameter Values (i.e., assign IP address and subnet
mask), press I. The system prompts for the IP address and subnet mask
for the connected device. Press Enter after each entry. A default gateway
can also be assigned, or press Enter to skip. When finished, press Enter,
then type reboot for changes to take effect. The Current Values can only
be saved and acted on after the IE-iMcV-MultiWay has been successfully
rebooted.
Password Protection for Serial Port Connections
Password/username is not offered for the serial port by default. This
allows the end user to quickly access the device for some basic
configuration capability. Password protection is provided for the serial
11
configuration process by pressing P on the main configuration screen.
Enter a password, keeping in mind that passwords are case-sensitive and
must not exceed eight characters or include spaces, and press Enter.
This password will be requested whenever logging on. To remove
password protection, select P and, instead of entering a password, press
Enter.
Passwords have the following requirements:
• The password must be between 1 and 8 characters long
• The password consists of a combination of any ASCII characters
except spaces
• Passwords are case sensitive
Passwords are a way to make the management of the B&B Electronicss
devices secure, but these password lists must be stored and maintained.
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 a New IP Address prompt, enter the appropriate IP
address of the destination device and press Enter. Then, 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.
Supported traps include: Link Down, Link Up, and Last Gasp.
Removing Trap Destinations
To remove all trap destinations, press K. Press Y to continue to confirm
or N to abort and remove all trap destinations. Press Enter to finish.
This function will delete all trap destinations. To selectively delete
trap destinations or to disable/enable Traps, use iView2 (iConfig
view) to configure the device.
Creating Community Strings
Community strings add a level of security to a network. The default
community string is named "public" and has read/write access. For
security, "public" should be replaced with custom community strings such
as ones created with read-only access (for general use), and another with
read/write access (for the administrator).
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:
12
•
•
•
R = read-only access
W = read/write access
Enter = abort
After entering R or W, press Enter. To finish, press Enter and reboot.
Deleting Community Strings
To delete all community strings, perform the following:
Press U. The "Are you sure you want to delete all future strings?" prompt
is displayed. 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 iView2 (iConfig view) to configure the device.
Ending the Session
Press E to end a serial port or Telnet/HyperTerminal session before
disconnecting the serial cable. This will stop the continuous stream of
data to the serial port.
Rebooting the Unit
To reboot the IE-iMcV-MultiWay, type reboot from the main screen or the
command menu.
Enabling/Disabling DHCP
To toggle DHCP on the IE-iMcV-MultiWay between enable and disable,
press D and then Y. Press the Space Bar once to return to the main
screen without making any changes.
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 iView2 (iConfig view) or
a Console session. 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 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 the serial
configuration to manually set the IP addresses.
13
When DHCP is enabled, the IP address (default 10.10.10.10 or a
previously used IP address, 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.
Commands List (Space Bar)
The IE-iMcV-MultiWay also includes several device-specific options. To
access these options, press the Space Bar from the Main Configuration
screen, type the name of the action to be performed (as shown below)
and press Enter.

Downloading Files
Firmware and/or saved configuration data for the IE-iMcV-MultiWay can
be downloaded via a TFTP connection from a central server via TFTP
protocol. Initiate this download via serial configuration or Telnet session.
To download a configuration file, type download and press Enter to be
taken to the Download a file screen. This screen displays the IP Address
of the TFTP server and the name of the file to be downloaded:
The TFTP server should be open. Press Enter to start downloading the file.
After the transfer process is complete, press Enter to load the
configuration file:
Once loaded into the device's SNMP memory area, the system prompts
the user to reboot the device to make the new configuration active.
Accounts
The following are the three levels for CLI or Telnet account access:
16
User:
View status, change own password, and reboot.
Administrator:
Operator privileges mentioned above, plus ability to
add/delete
accounts and reinitialize the unit to default settings
(cleandb).
Operator:
All User privileges mentioned above, plus ability to
change settings.
VLAN Configuration
The ports can be assigned as a trunk or access port.
17
When configuring a trunk port, an Ethertype can be user-defined (a trunk
port is also defined as a provider port based on 802.1ad). If an Ethertype
value comes in a trunk port and is different than the user-defined
Ethertype, it will be treated as an unrecognized VLAN tagged frame. If
configuring the port as an access port, enter a VLAN ID between 1 and
4,094. Possible priority settings are 0 (lowest priority) through 7 (highest
priority).
NOTE
When an Ethertype or VLAN ID is assigned, the same values need to be configured
at the end device (router, etc) to avoid network configuration problems.
Operational Mode Configuration
There are two modes of operation that can be configured through the
Serial/Telnet session: Mode 1, which supports a mixture of tagged and
untagged traffic, and Mode 2 Extra tagging.
The configuration screen is accessed by typing vlan and pressing Enter
from the Additional Commands screen. The system displays the current
operation mode screen. Press the Space Bar to select the other mode.
18
Operation Mode 1 – Mixed Tagged and Untagged Frames
In this mode, all tagged and untagged frames pass on any given port.
Management to the device can be tagged or untagged.
Press the down arrow on the computer keyboard to access additional
configuration selections.
*WARNING*
If a VLAN # is added to a port and is the same VLAN # assigned for a
tag on management traffic, saving these changes will disrupt
management indefinitely.
19
Management on Ports Option: any port can be enabled/disabled for
management.
Operation Mode 2 Port Based Xtra Tagging
Any port can be configured for extra tags on the frames.
Press the down arrow on the computer keyboard to access the additional
configuration commands.

SFP A/B Ports
Ingress Bandwidth
Limit
(CIR)
Monitors the traffic entering the unit (ingress),
discarding traffic that exceeds a fixed
Committed Information Rate (CIR) plus Burst
Allocation (BA). Frames are not held in queue,
they either meet the bandwidth limits and are
accepted into the unit or they are dropped.
Max Burst Allocation
size (BA)
The BA size is specified in bits; the # of bits
above the bandwidth limit before packets are
thrown away.
Ingress Burst
Allocation
Bandwidth Limiting can be set at Ingress of each
port individually by setting the MAX Bandwidth
Limit in bits/Sec. and the BA in bits. Traffic in
excess of the Bandwidth limit plus BA for any
time interval will be dropped. This function
utilizes an advanced “Leaky Token-Bucket”
algorithm to provide typical resolution under 5%
of the set values at all data rate and frames
sizes.
Egress Traffic Shaping
Egress Traffic shaping actively controls the
transmitter and hard limits the maximum frame
21
rate that can be sent. Frames can be delayed in
the internal buffers of the unit, waiting their turn
to be sent. If the internal buffers are full, excess
traffic will be dropped. The Unit Rate Control
can be used to alleviate this.

Allows the end user to globally configure all
Bandwidth settings when enabling Unit Rate
Control (Flow Control). If the END device
connected to the port also has Flow Control
enabled, this will ensure packets will not be
dropped.
*OSI NOTES
The Bandwidth Limit functions can be adjusted to only count the Layer 1, 2, or
3 portions of the physical line rate. Layer 1 is used to relate Bandwidth to the
physical line rate where a 100BaseT Ethernet line can carry a MAX bandwidth of
100Mbps. Layer 2 may be more useful when the Ethernet Frame may be carried
over several different physical protocols such as SONET or SDH. Only the
bandwidth required by the Ethernet frame is counted, making this a more
consistent number over different protocols. Layer 3 counting could be used
when a relationship to the actual customer data or line payload is required. If a
10 Mbps customer file needs to be sent in one second, then a minimum
bandwidth limit of 10Mbps would need to use Layer 3 counting to allow this.
It must be noted that only Layer 1 counting is not affected by the size
of the Ethernet frame. At 64 byte Ethernet frames, the MAX bandwidth
the line can support at Layer 2 is only 76.2% of the line rate. This
maximum falls to 54.8% of the line rate when counting is further
limited by only counting Layer 3 payload data.

Configuration File Save/Restore Function
Requirements
The Configuration File Save/Restore Function allows a user the ability to
backup all the configuration settings of a unit. With this backup, a user
can restore settings to a unit if necessary or use this backup to apply the
same settings to a different unit.
All configurable managed objects are saved in a configuration file that is
stored in the unit’s Large File Area. This includes all configurable
settings such as VLAN configurations, IP Address configuration and SNMP
agent settings. The configuration file can be transferred from the unit to
a PC and saved to disk through the iView2 (iConfig view) protocol. The
configuration file can be transferred from a PC to a unit of the same type
through iView2 (iConfig view) or TFTP into the unit’s Large File Area. After
44
the transfer is complete, the unit copies the configuration to flash and
reboots.
The configuration file’s contents is device-type specific and can be
identified by iView2 (iConfig view) as a configuration file as well as to what
type of device it is applicable to.
Saving a Configuration File to Disk:
From the Administration Tab in iView2 (iConfig view) click the Save
Configuration button:
The user is prompted for a filename:
45
The user is prompted to enter any notes to the header of the saved file
for future reference when uploading the file through iView2 (iConfig view):
After the file transfer from the device to disk, the user is notified of the
status:
46
Uploading a Saved Configuration File through iView2 (iConfig view)
From the Administration Tab in iView2 (iConfig view) click the Upload
Configuration button:
The user will be prompted to select a configuration file. Once selected,
the user can also view any notes that were added when the file was saved:
After selecting the configuration file, the file upload process begins; when
completed, the user is notified of the status and also notified that a
reboot is necessary for the new configuration to become active:
By design, the IP Address configuration currently on the device is kept
intact and not overwritten by the new configuration file.

Troubleshooting
If a fiber connection cannot be established, perform the following to
make sure that the fiber transceivers on the IE-iMcV-MultiWay are not
over/under driving the fiber receivers:
1. Make sure the fiber wavelength on both connected devices match (i.e.
both are 1310 nm single-mode fiber).
2. Make sure the twisted-pair port speed on the IE-iMcV-MultiWay
matches that of the end devices connected to the IE-iMcV-MultiWay.
Configure the IE-iMcV-MultiWay and its link partner to Auto
Negotiation or, if using Force mode, be sure speed and duplex
match.
3. IE-iMcV-MultiWay allows the end user to assign a VLAN tag to all
management traffic (SNMP and telnet). It is important to understand
that IF using telnet or iView2 to assign a VLAN tag to management
traffic then as soon as this setting is saved the connectivity will be
lost until the PC becomes a member of the VLAN which was assigned
to management traffic.
If a VLAN tag has been assigned to management traffic and the end
user cannot re-establish a connection to the device via iView2 or
telnet, directly connect a PC to the device via the serial cable and
review/modify the changes made (reference section on serial port
config).

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, if you terminate your own fiber)
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 Electronicss 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 you suspect that the optics have been contaminated, alternate
between blasting with clean, dry, compressed air and flushing with
methanol to remove particles of dirt.
56
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.
