Optical devices modeling tool in Smallworld PNI

Smallworld Physical Network Inventory [PNI] has been extended with advanced optical devices modelling tool. PNI user can now define:

  • optical splitters
  • combiners
  • multiplexers
  • attenuators
  • amplifiers

in much detail.

Exact optical signal flow on wavelength level and optical parameters can be defined on each optical port. Optical devices can be placed inside racks (as RME) and also in manholes, splices and cabinets.

New features in Physical Route Manager [PRM] and Optical Network Atlas [ONA]

PRM and ONA – Globema’s applications that extend basic functionalities of the Smallworld system – take advantage of this additional devices modeling and allow users to:

  • Create full customer service route in FTTX network (PRM)
  • Create WDM section with full wavelength information and occupancy (PRM)
  • Create compact and convenient FTTx network schematic (ONA)
  • Display WDM devices and sections in ONA

All previous functions in PRM and ONA support these new features.

FTTx network schematics in Optical Network Atlas

Optical Network Atlas enables automatic generation of schemes for optical routes. It automatically generates easily printable and legible paper documentation of the optical network fragments needed in development and maintenance. Schemes are generated using dynamically traced optical routes, starting from a given location or splice using selected optical cables/fibers or ODF shelves/ports. All parts of the scheme are divided into separate pages during the generation process, allowing the system to present the same results using different outputs (Smallworld application, printed documentation, PDF).

FTTH service route in Physical Route Manager

Physical Route Manager is an extension to the PNI application. PRM allows managing physical routes in transmission networks. The application groups any number of physical resources into an easily accessible and manageable entity called Route. Route consists of mutually related elements, such as fibers, ports, and splices that comprises a connection between two locations. Routes facilitate modeling & utilization of physical resources for data transmission services and fiber/pairs lease.

PRM functionality supports key business processes: network planning, connecting new customers to a network, outage management and network maintenance.
