Yes

This field identifies whether a fiber is available to be leased or open for internal use. A fiber strand can be dark and still unavailable if it has been leased or reserved for another purpose. Each organization can determine the criteria for availability. The Fiber Availability Indicator domain is assigned to this field.

FiberColor
