Description: Omnitron iConverter 10/100M2 - Fiber media converter - 100Mb LAN - 10Base-T, 100Base-FX, 100Base-TX - RJ-45 / SC single-mode - up to 30 km - 1310 nm
Mfr Part #: 8903N-1
The iConverter 10/100M2 conforms to the Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) fiber standards to support Fiber-to-the-X Metropolitan and Enterprise LAN networks. The 10/100M2 provides intelligent, securely managed service demarcation at the customer premises, offering Layer 2 Control Protocol (L2CP) policy control, Quality of Service and enhanced bandwidth control (rate-limiting) capabilities. The 10/100M2 features built-in Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) with comprehensive performance monitoring, fault detection and provisioning.
8903N-1 supports port access, enhanced bandwidth control, port MIB statistics and 2,048 byte frames.
The 10/100M2 features multiple, user-selectable link fault detection modes for quick fault detection and isolation. These modes operate independently of the network management and monitor the state of the cabling hardware.
Link-Segmentation (LS) is the normal (default) mode where the UTP and fiber ports establish their links to other connected devices independently of each other.
In Link-Propagation (LP) mode (also known as Link-Loss-Carry-Forward), a link-out from the UTP port is generated only when a link-in to the fiber port is present, and a link-out from the fiber port is generated only when a link-in to the UTP port is present. In LP mode, a cable or link fault is propagated in a domino fashion to downstream or upstream connected equipment, enabling rapid fault detection.
Asymmetrical Link Propagation (ALP) has two modes of operation: copper-to-fiber and fiber-to-copper. In the 'copper-to-fiber' mode, a fault on the UTP port will propagate across the fiber to attached link partner, but not to the UTP port of the link partner. A fault on the fiber will not propagate at all. In the 'fiber-to-copper' mode, a fault on the UTP port will not propagate through to the attached UTP device. In this mode the "domino" effect is limited.
In Remote-Fault-Detection (RFD)+LS mode, each port transmits a link signal only when receiving a link. As a result, link faults (no link received) are looped-back and can be reported to the network core.
In Remote Fault Detection + Link Propagate (RFD+LP) mode, link faults are propagated from the fiber to the UTP port and also looped-back to the fiber port. This mode provides rapid reporting of any cable faults to the network core.
Symmetrical-Fault-Detection (SFD) mode is similar to the RFD mode and provides a loop-back of a fiber link fault. When connecting two SFD configured converters back-to-back, this mode facilitates fiber or UTP fault notification to both ends of the network.

- Link modes
The 10/100M2 features multiple, user-selectable link fault detection modes, including Link Propagation, Remote Fault Detection and Asymmetrical Fault Detection. These link modes provide rapid fault detection and isolation by monitoring the state of the cabling hardware, and operate independently of the network management.
- Tag VLAN, port VLAN and QoS
The iConverter 10/100M2 supports the IEEE 802.1Q tag Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) packet tagging and untagging (including Q-in-Q tunneling and 802.1ad service provider tag) and the 802.1p Quality of Service priority standards.
- Port bandwidth control and port access control
The enhanced bandwidth control feature supports levels of bandwidth between the fiber and UTP ports in 64Kbps increments from 64K to Full Line Speed. The 10/100M2 features port access control which blocks user service while maintaining the network link.
- Port statistics and optical performance statistics
The 10/100M2 supports reporting of utilization, port and optical performance statistics. Port statistics are available for 38 different variables for the UTP and fiber ports. Additionally, full optical performance statistics are available on SFP fiber transceivers with a digital diagnostic bus. Port and optical performance statistics reporting provides the ability to monitor customer bandwidth utilization, network performance and the link signal quality for each individual port.
