Just downloaded the Telecom Model and have read through the Telecom Network Editing Tools End User Guide, and I have a couple questions.
1. I get the modeling of underground (UG) span with the Conduit feature class and conduit geometric network, but I don't see how to model aerial span.
2. I need some guidance, also, on modeling the transition point on a fiber cable between aerial and underground. Will I need to model those points as end points of an aerial cable and an UG cable joined by what...? A FiberInterconnect feature? Can I splice, then, inside the FiberInterconnect with pass-thru splices? Or do I need to place a SpliceClosure feature at the end points and make pass-thru splices?
