The Esri team is continuing to refine and improve the data model for Communications Data Management on ArcGIS Utility Network Management. Use this thread to provide input on the requirements of the data model, capabilities of the telecom network, ask questions about the network, access early versions of data models, and stay up to date on the latest news.

Thanks, Mike. There are indeed rules that were not available in 10.7.1:Data Functions | ArcGIS for Developers

I am very excited about this new utility package, but we run ArcMap 10.6, and cannot access the mapx.  Are there any plans to create a version for us non-Arc GIS Pro users?  Thank you in advance!!!

Stephanie Finamore‌ ArcGIS Utility Network Management only works with ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro. This new Comms Network Foundation data model was built on the utility network.  A previous communications data model exists for the geometric network, which is ArcMap friendly, but all new development is going into this new model and the utility network.

Does the coax network foundation which is in development include interactive design capabilities? I mean, when I design a coax network can I do on-the-fly calculations on a set of frequencies (taking the loss / gain of the cables, line-equilizers, amplifiers, .... into account)? Or is it "just" an inventory?

Hi Ronny,

You are right.

In this second Early Preview, we do have basic physical network elements (as you said it is a network inventory) for Coax and Copper networks such as fiber-to-coax/copper converter ports; coax/copper cables, etc. Speaking of the power and signal calculation during the design and planning phase would be what we categorize as the Logical Network Elements.

We are developing this data model to serve as a framework for our users and partners, who will take this foundation and customize it with additional logical components. For right now, we don't have a near plan to add those components yet, but we will keep our user community updated.

Thanks a lot! And let us know if there were any other questions.

What’s New in the July 2020 Early Preview:

  • Added support for wireless antenna assets and microwave management
  • Added support for copper assets
  • Added support for coax assets
  • Added support for line structures: conduit, duct
  • Includes a File Geodatabase with the Utility Network and the maps referencing this database.  This reduces the time for users who want to test out the utility network and how it supports their industry.
  • Task to guide editing and tracing. 
  • Task to walk through the deployment of the solution, both to Enterprise and Single User.  Not only do these task provide the steps, they are able to open the proper tool or pane and speeds up the process to deploy the solution.
  • Geoprocessing tool to change map data sources.  This is a amazing tool that leverages ArcPy Mapping and the CIM tools in it to switch maps between FGDB, SDE, and services.

Hi there! I just need the symbology for ArcMap 10.7.1. Is there anyway you can convert the .stylx into a .style for us? Thanks.

Hey Patrick! I was thinking at the UC you gave a timeline final release of the Tools in September. Can you provide this string an update on this? Thanks in advance!

Hi Joe, thank you for following the exciting development of the UN for telecommunications. To include all the new features and take advantage of some of the latest ArcGIS Pro development, our team has postponed the release date for the model. Currently, we are aiming at around the early-mid November timeframe.

And we will keep our user community posted on any updates.

Thank you.
