What the are the cause of this fault and where should I look at-PLC hardware or fiber optic cable?

First make sure that all of your CPUs and Ethernet modules if used have the latest firmware. If that does not help the situation get a monitoring software like www.Wireshark.org to try to narrow down where the problems are coming from.

I would bet on the cabling be it FO or CU.

@ danw2, that link is to a very old manual. The latest one for this can be found on the GE web site here:
Ethernet Comms Manual GFK-2224
