Placeholders

Explanation

{AGG_ID}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the aggregation ID of the layer point at the start point of the duct.

{UPSTREAM_ID}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the upstream ID of the layer point at the start point of the duct. 

{CITY}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the city of the layer point (input) at the start point of the duct. 

{POSTCODE}

This placeholder is replaced by the ZIP code of the layer point (input) at the start point. 

{STREET}

This placeholder is replaced by the street of the layer point (input) at the start point.

{HOUSE_NR}

           

This placeholder is replaced by the house number of the layer point (input) at the start point. 

{ORIGIN_NAME}

This placeholder is replaced by the name of the structure to which the start layer point of the duct is assigned.

{DUCT_IDX}

 

This indicates the duct index of the duct.

The duct index is a sequential numbering of the ducts at their start points. 

{TARGET_AGG_ID}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the assignment ID of the target layer point.

TREE_POS

This is a value that is incremented when the duct branches.

{GLOBAL_SEQ}

 

This placeholder is replaced by a global counter that counts the ducts of all network layers of the project that use this placeholder. 

{SEGMENT_SEQ}

 

This placeholder is replaced by a counter that counts across all ducts of the corresponding network layer.

{BRANCH_SEGMENT_SEQ}

This placeholder is replaced by a counter that restarts for each branch of a tree.

{ID}

 

This placeholder is a combination of the upstream ID, the aggregation ID and the duct index {DUCT_IDX}.

{TYPE_NAME}

This is the identifier of the ducts from the ruleset.

{MICRODUCT_COUNT}

This is the number of microducts of the duct type

[{}]

Placeholders in square brackets [] cause the complete expression to be ignored if the requested value returns an empty string in the curly brackets {}

 

Naming of Microducts

Placeholders Explanation

{AGG_ID}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the aggregation ID of the layer point at the start point of the microduct. 

{UPSTREAM_ID}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the upstream ID of the layer point at the start point of the microduct. 

{DUCT_IDX}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the duct index of the higher layer duct. 

{MICRODUCT_NR}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the position number of the microduct.

{CABLE_NAME}

 

This placeholder is replaced by the name of the cable in the duct. If there is no cable in the duct or there are several cables with different names, the value will be empty. 

DUCT_NAME

This is the name of the higher-layer duct.  

[{}]

Placeholders in square brackets [] cause the complete expression to be ignored if the requested value returns an empty string in the curly brackets {}

 

Note

When “Shared Cable” is set in the optimization rules, using the {DUCT_IDX} or placeholders that use this attribute produce results that do not meet expectations. Due to the “shared cable” rule, the name cannot be mapped generally.

Export details regarding the duct infrastructure

Duct points are automatically created and numbered. 

Duct fittings are created automatically. Duct fittings are named if it is a 1-to-1 connection and the connected ducts have the same name. The name of the duct fitting corresponds to the name of the connected ducts.

The duct-fitting type is formed from the duct types of the connected ducts, separated by a comma. 

Ducts or microducts are interconnected when a cable is in them.

  • Example: A 24-fold composite branches off to a 24-fold composite and a 12-fold composite.

If ducts of the same type run further, an attempt is made to interconnect same-numbered microducts. Furthermore, the microducts of the 24-fold composite that are not needed for the 12-fold composite are also interconnected.

  • Example: A 12-fold composite is divided into two 12-fold composites.

In this case, the longer multi-duct bundle is extended and the other required microducts are connected with fittings.

The export to the detailed planning does not change any network structures and is not able to summarize layer points. It is likewise not possible to assign fiber connections to defined trays.

If you have specific conversion requests, we will create a conversion scheme that is tailored to your requirements.
