Introduction

In NET Engineering, both the planning and the documentation of telecommunication networks can be carried out.

Data can be collected in three different database systems: file-based in SQLite files or in PostgreSQL or Oracle databases.

Projects are created in the Infrastructure Administrator.

Planning

Planning can be imported from NET Design or performed separately in NET Engineering. In NET Engineering, the FTTx Design Wizard and Create drop workflows can be used for this purpose. The data required for this can be imported or connected as a background.

Documentation

Existing telecommunications networks can be documented either schematically or in a georeferenced manner.

The most important structural elements can be managed with geometry and shown in the illustration. Ducts and cables can be entered with their own geometries or assigned to a trench without their own geometries. The display in the illustration is controlled via the display model.

Project start

Depending on the database used, the project is opened in a file or via a database connection.

SQLite file

The SQLite file can be opened here:

 mceclip2.png or  mceclip1.png

and selected in the appropriate directory.

The opened file contains all feature classes in the Industry Model Explorer, workflows in the Workflow Explorer and the layers in the display model.

Database connection

You can connect to the database via “Open Project”.

The open project contains all feature classes in the Industry Model Explorer and workflows in the Workflow Explorer:

No display model has been loaded yet and therefore no elements are visible in the graphic.

Graphic

The display model can be selected from the list (1) or opened from a directory (2).

After selecting the display model, the graphic can be created.

“Generate Graphic” displays the entire geometry of the industry model in the graphic window.

“Advanced Generate Graphic” can be used to create the geometry in a specific area.

This area is to be defined by coordinates and a certain width/height, a graphically defined area or the object selection.

The layers are then displayed in the right task window “Display management” and displayed accordingly in the graphic.
