Cable Trunk

A cable trunk is used to manage cable sections, closures and terminators. The cable trunk itself has no geometry. Any cable sections, closures and terminators can be assigned to a cable trunk.
In NET Engineering, users have the option of defining cable traces themselves. The form is opened by double-clicking in the “Trunk” field in the Cable Section, Closure or Terminator form, or in Industry Model Explorer > TP Network > TP Cable Trunk.
