Suppose you are a network administrator and you have just received a message that the contractor is ready to deliver the network. The contractor provides a dataset via the CTTH or CIFTTH tool with all addresses, the connected addresses and the addresses that are not directly connected. But how do you place the as yet unconnected addresses in the network correctly later on?
Addresses that are not directly connected are given a different status during the import. Examples of a different status are GV (façade) or EG (site boundary). After the dataset has been delivered, the geography shows that the cable runs from an unfinished address to the building, not yet to the frame and is in storage. In addition, the building will be ‘invisible’.
CoconTheWeb has a screen with which subsequent connections can be entered. The tile can be found in the main menu and is called ‘Entering post-connections’. You can search for the address to be connected by postcode, house number and any additions. If there are addresses that have not yet been given a postcode, you can also search by cable name, for example, a new residential area. The route from the building to the trench can be drawn on the map, after which additional data must be entered. After processing, the cable is completed on the frame and FTU. Lastly, a line designation is put on the fiber, these are the address details of the connected address. The post-connection has been processed and your network is up to date again.
