1.INTRODUCTION

The TRANSITION Networks METTF10xx (Ethernet) and MFETF10xx (Fast Ethernet) series Multichannel Media Converters connect twisted-pair copper cable to fiber-optic cable in separate copper-to-fiber media converter pairs, called channels. The network administrator can select a Multichannel Media Converter that provides up to six (6) or up to twelve (12) channels, with either 10BASE-T/10BASE-FL or 100BASE-TX /100BASE-FX connections and with either ST or SC fiber connectors.

The Multichannel Media Converter can be installed as a standalone unit or in a standard rack and can be managed at an attached terminal or using an SNMP application at a remote Network Management Station. Fullduplex or half-duplex network operation, for each channel, is switchselectable or software-selectable.

Located only on 100BASE-TX MFETF10xx series Multichannel Media Converter models, the Rest button, if present, allows the network administrator to reset ALL Multichannel Media Converter channel ports.

1.5AC Power Supply Module/Optional Redundant AC Power Supply Module

An AC Power Supply Module, installed at the back of the Multichannel

Media Converter before shipment, supplies power to the Multichannel

Media Converter through an external power cord connected to an external

AC outlet.

NOTE: The Multichannel Media Converter does not have an ON/OFF power switch. Power is applied to, and removed from, the Multichannel Media Converter by connecting and disconnecting the power cord.

The Multichannel Media Converter rear panel also contains an expansion slot for an optional redundant Power Supply Module. When installed, the optional redundant Power Supply Module shares the power load with the main AC Power Supply Module. If one power supply fails, the remaining power supply assumes the role of providing all power to the Multichannel Media Converter, thereby protecting the Multichannel Media Converter from a system failure.

NOTE: Both the redundant Power Supply Module and the main AC Power

Supply Module can be "hot swapped".

2.1Preparing the Site

Consider the following when choosing a site for the Multichannel Media

Converter:

Select a site that provides conditions that conform to the environmental requirements listed in the appendix.

Select a site that is dust-free and moisture-free.

Do not block the ventilation openings on the Multichannel Media Converter. The site should allow for proper heat dissipation from, and adequate ventilation around, the Multichannel Media Converter.

Be sure that the site will allow easy access to twisted-pair cables, fiber-optic cables, and power cord(s).

Use dedicated power circuits or power stabilizers to supply reliable power to the Multichannel Media Converter.

Keep twisted-pair cabling away from sources of electrical noise, such as radios, electric motors, transmitters, broadband amplifiers, power lines, and flourescent fixtures.

Also:

ALL NODES connected to the ports on the media converter must operate at the same speed: 10 Mb/s or 100 Mb/s, according to Multichannel Media Converter model selected.

The nodes connected to EACH CHANNEL on the Multichannel Media Converter must operate in the same duplex mode, either half-duplex or full-duplex. Do NOT, for instance, connect a node operating at half-duplex to a twisted-pair port and then connect another node operating at full-duplex to the fiber-optic port of the same channel.

2.6Connecting Channel Ports to Network

Each channel port is connected, using twisted-pair copper and fiber-optic cable, to network devices.

2.6.1Setting FDX/HDX Channel Configuration Switches

FDX/HDX (F(ull-)D(uple)X and H(alf)D(uple)X) refers to the manner in which a network device sends and receives data on the network. A network device that is operating in half-duplex mode either sends data or receives data, in turn. A network device that is operating in full-duplex mode both sends and receives data, simultaneously.

NOTE: The Multichannel Media Converter is an HDX/FDX autonegotiating device which transmits "FDX Advertising" signals to attached network devices and forces FDX-capable network devices to FDX. Though each channel of the Multichannel Media Converter can operate in either full-duplex or half-duplex mode, setting the entire network to full-duplex mode maximizes throughput and distances. To achieve this, ALL interconnected devices must be capable of full-duplex and properly set.

CAUTION: If any network devices connected to a channel are not capable of full-duplex (FDX), then all other channel devices must be set to half-duplex (HDX), INCLUDING THE MULTICHANNEL MEDIA CONVERTER CHANNEL. Failure to observe this caution will result in excess network collisions.

NOTE: Each channel FDX/HDX switch must be set separately. Do NOT connect a node operating at half-duplex to a twisted-pair port and then connect another node operating at full-duplex to the fiber-optic port of the same channel. Do NOT connect a node operating at full-duplex to a twisted-pair port and then connect another node operating at half-duplex to the fiber-optic port of the same channel.

2.6.2 Installing Fiber-optic Cable

Refer to the appendix for cable specifications for the 10BASE-FL or the 100BASE-FX fiber-optic installation.

Installing Cable

1.Locate or build 10BASE-FL-compliant or 100BASE-FX-compliant cables (depending upon Multichannel Media Converter selected for the site), with male two-stranded TX to RX connectors installed at both ends.

2.Connect TX and RX connectors at one end of cable to mating Multichannel Media Converter TX and RX fiber-optic connector.

3.Connect cable with connector installed at TX location on Multichannel Media Converter channel to RX location on attached network device.

4.Connect cable with connector installed at RX location on Multichannel Media Converter channel to TX location on attached network device.

Testing Fiber Link(s)

NOTE: The Link Test switch (DIP switch #7) enables and disables the Link

Test feature for a block of six (6) Multichannel Media Converter channels.

When the Link Test feature is enabled (set to NORMAL position), if the Multichannel Media Converter senses loss of a twisted-pair link, the associated fiber-optic link is cut. Then the remote device senses loss of the fiber-optic link and, if the remote device is another Multichannel Media Converter also set to NORMAL mode, the remote Multichannel Media Converter disables the twisted-pair port. Finally the remote device becomes aware that the link to the opposite end device connected to this channel is not fully functional and subsequently triggers a back-up mechanism (if so equipped) and/or alerts the network manager.

Thus, when the Link Test feature is enabled (set to NORMAL position), if a Multichannel Media Converter does not detect a good link on the twistedpair 10BASE-T /100BASE-TX side of any channel, the Multichannel Media Converter disables all data transmission (including active-idle) on the fiber-optic 10BASE-FL/100BASE-FX side of that channel.

However, the network administrator facing a device with no link indication cannot tell whether that no link indication is due to the loss of the fiber-optic link or due to loss of the remote twisted-pair link.

Therefore, when installing a fiber-optic network, disable the Link Test feature (set to TEST position) to establish that the Multichannel Media Converter fiber-optic links are operational and THEN connect network devices through the twisted-pair links.

Ensure the network device connected to the twisted-pair channel port is powered ON.

Ensure that the twisted-pair cable is connected securely both to the channel port and to the network device.

If the network device connected to the port is a workstation, ensure that the cable is in the crossover configuration.

If the network device connected to the port is a hub or switch, ensure that the cable is in the straight-through configuration.

Ensure that the network device connected to the port is operating at correct speed: 10 Mb/s or 100 Mb/s.

If the F-LNK LED for a fiber optic port is OFF:

Ensure that the network device connected properly to the fiber-optic port is powered ON.

Ensure that the fiber-optic cable is connected to the fiberoptic port and to the network device.

Ensure that the network device connected to the fiber-optic port is operating at correct speed: 10 Mb/s or 100 Mb/s.

Set the Link Test switch(es) to TEST position (to isolate fiber link faults from faults on the twisted-pair network).

Allow 5-10 seconds for all devices to link-up. All LNK LEDs should illuminated

NOTEL Remember to reset Link Test switch(es) to NORMAL after procedure is completed

Verify that the maximum allowable loss budget on the fiberoptic cable is within acceptable limits.

If a LINK LED of a port is illuminated but there is a communication problem with the port:

Ensure that the duplex setting is set the same on the nodes connected to the twisted-pair and to the fiber-optic ports of the media converter channel.

If all LNK LEDs are OFF but all network decices and fiber-optic cable are connected, a link-up problem is suspected:
