I'm starting to think about managing wireless communications connectivity via GIS and am researching what products or capabilities exist in the ESRI platform.
The first request I've gotten is to map the locations of "Power Cans" - could be a wireless repeater from a tower to the final product, could be a node to collect data from sensors or cameras, or a communications device. That task is pretty straightforward, but the secondary task of showing what is connected to each can (both downline and upline) is more difficult.
Other than a field listing the downline devices (or several fields listing one downline device each), is there a way to connect the points? For example, if something happens to the Node, I want an easy and quick way to determine all of the devices that are attached to it downline.
