Blown Fiber Workflow in Communication Model

Hello,

My question relates to the Utility Network Communication model. How can I implement the "Blown Fiber" workflow with the data model?

Theoretically, I would first create the structural network from microduct casings and microducts, in which the microducts are connected up to the NIU. I would then do a downstream or upstream trace at the microduct level to determine the entire microduct path from the hub terminator to the NIU. I would then virtually blow my optical fiber into this microduct path.

If I understand correctly, it is in general not possible to run a trace on the structure network, this is only possible for domain networks.

Is my understanding of the Utility Network correct or is there a way to map the "Blown Fiber" workflow with the Communication data model?

If anyone has any ideas on this, please let me know.

Thank you and best regards,

Juergen

You can do a trace on the structure network, you just can't do a directional trace of any kind.  You would need to place two start points and executed a find shortest path to find the microducts you want to blow the fiber strands in.
