S4TEF10xx-11x

Stand-Alone Media Converter

Twisted-Pair Copper to Fiber

• 10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX

• RS-232 to Fiber

• (4) T1/E1 to Fiber

The S4TEF10xx-11x media converter is designed to extend signals from a 10Base-T Ethernet/100Base-TX Fast Ethernet port, an RS-232 data port, and up to four (4) T1/E1

network ports over fiber. The Ethernet, RS-232, and T1/E1 interfaces are independent of each other and the signals from these ports can be sent over the fiber interface simultaneously.

The S4TEF10xx-11x is designed to be installed in pairs. For example, install one S4TEF1011-110 as the local media converter and another S4TEF1011-110 as the remote media converter. All S4TEF10xx-11x models have the following copper connectors.

The loop-back setting is used for installation and network debugging procedures. Each of the T1/E1 ports can be individually set for loop-back mode:

Switch 5 controls T1/E1 port 1

Switch 6 controls T1/E1 port 2

Switch 7 controls T1/E1 port 3

Switch 8 controls T1/E1 port 4

When the loop-back switch for a particular T1/E1 port is enabled, the port loops the signal from the receive port back to the transmit port. The T1/E1 loop-back test scenarios are described in detail in under Troubleshooting, on page 24.

Note: Switch 7 and 8 are inactive if switch 6 is enabled (up).

7 - Ethernet speed

up (Full-Duplex) - Sets the Ethernet port to full-duplex mode. The twisted-pair cable distances are constrained by the cable requirements (see pages 1 and 2 for the cable specifications for the various S4TEF10xx-11x models).

down (Half-Duplex) - Sets the Ethernet port to halfduplex mode. The twisted-pair cable distances are constrained by the 512-bit rule:

In a half-duplex network, the maximum cable lengths are determined by the round trip delay limitations of each Fast Ethernet collision domain.

(A collision domain is the longest path between any two terminal devices, e.g. a terminal, switch, or router.)

8

up

Full-Duplex

down

Half-Duplex

The 512-bit rule determines the maximum length of cable permitted by calculating the round-trip delay in bit-times (BT) of a particular collision domain. If the result is less than or equal to 512 BT, the path is good.

For more information on the 512-bit rule, see the white paper titled “Collision Domains” on the Transition Networks website at: www.transition.com.

Disable Link Pass-Through

The Transparent Link Pass-Through feature allows the media converter to monitor the Ethernet copper RX (receive) ports for loss of signal. For example, when the Ethernet copper link on the near end device is lost (1), the local media converter transmits a signal to the remote media converter (2), thus, “passing through” the link loss. The remote media converter disables the Ethernet copper link to the far-end device (3), which prevents the loss of valuable data unknowingly transmitted over an invalid link.

It is important to remember that, although the Ethernet copper link has been disabled, the fiber link is still valid (4). Thus, there is no disruption to the transfer of T1/E1 or RS-232 data signals over the fiber link.

Remote management function

The S4TEF10xx-11x can be remotely managed when connected via fiber cable to a local C4TEF10xx-11x slide-in-module media converter that is installed in a managed Transition Networks PointSystem™ chassis. The SNMP section (below) lists the commands that can be used to monitor and manage a networked S4TEF10xx-11x media converter at a remote location. For more details, see the C4TEF10xx-11x user’s guide on-line at: www.transition.com.

Copper link status for Ethernet (link, speed, duplex)

RS-232 status (speed, bits, parity, stop)

All hardware switch settings

Troubleshooting

If the media converter fails, isolate and correct the failure by determining the answers to the following questions and then taking the indicated action:

1.Is the “PWR” LED illuminated? NO

Ensure that the power adapter is the proper type of voltage and cycle frequency for the outlet (See “Power Supply” on page 15.)

Ensure the power adapter is properly installed in the media converter and in the grounded outlet.

Contact Tech Support: 1-800-260-1312, Int’l: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Proceed to step 2.

2.Is the “LKF” LED illuminated? NO

Check the fiber cables for proper connection.

Verify that the TX and RX cables on the local media converter are connected to the RX and TX ports, respectively, on the remote media converter.

Contact Tech Support: 1-800-260-1312, Int’l: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Proceed to step 3.

3.Is the “Duplex/Link” LED illuminated? NO

Check the copper cables for proper connection.

Contact Tech Support: 1-800-260-1312, Int’l: 00-1-952-941-7600. YES

Amber = The media converter has selected half-duplex mode.

Green = The media converter has selected full-duplex mode.

If the mode is not correct, disconnect and reconnect the twisted pair cable to restart the initialization process.

Proceed to step 4.

4.Is the “Speed” LED illuminated? NO

Check the copper cables for proper connection.

Contact Tech Support: 1-800-260-1312, Int’l: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Amber = The media converter has selected 10Mb/s operation.

Green = The media converter has selected 100Mb/s operation.

If the speed is not correct, disconnect and reconnect the twisted pair cable to restart the initialization process.

Proceed to step 5.

Troubleshooting -- Continued

5.Is the “LNK” LED on a T1/E1 port (with a copper cable installed) illuminated? NO

Check the copper cable connected to that T1/E1 port for proper connection.

Contact Tech Support: 1-800-260-1312, Int’l: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Proceed to step 6.

6.Is the “AIS” LED on a T1/E1 port (with a copper cable installed) illuminated? YES

The device connected to the T1/E1 port has failed. Correct the device failure.

Contact Tech Support: 1-800-260-1312, Int’l: 00-1-952-941-7600.

NO

Proceed to step 7.

7.Is data transfer failing on the fiber port? YES

Verify the local fiber connection by starting a remote fiber loop-back:

-HW mode: set the remote converter to fiber loop-back.

-SW mode: enter the remote fiber loop-back command.

Use a bit error test unit to run a bit error test.
