FrontsidePort

The FrontsidePort is the representation of the front side of ports on a patch panel. The connections to the front side of patch panels are much more dynamic and transitory over time. Connections can be frequently reconnected with fiber optic jumper cables to meet operations needs.

Required field?

Description

PortNumber

long integer

Yes

This field is used to create a relationship between the backside and frontside representations of the same port.

PortName

text

Yes

This field will usually be the same as the PortNumber field. In some cases, an organization may have a unique port naming convention that does not follow a sequential or integer based system. This field allows for these discrepancies in port naming conventions.

PortType

text

Yes

This field stores the connector type that plugs into this port. Examples of port types include SC, ST and FC. The Fiber Port Type domain is assigned to this field.

PortPositionOnCard

long integer

Yes

This field is used by Fiber Manager to hydrate the ports in the proper position on a patch panel card in the application and on reports. This field uses the standard Fiber Manager position management scheme to determine the correct position of the port on the card. This field allows for multiple rows and columns of ports on the card.

DemarcationIndicator

long integer

No

This field is used to denote that a port indicates a change in ownership in the system. The Yes/No domain is assigned to this field. The default value for this field is ‘No’, while a ‘Yes’ indicates an ownership change. This is not a required field.

AttenuatorLoss

double

No

This can be used by a client's custom code to store the amount of loss (in dB) that an attenuator attached to the port produces. This value is not used in any tracing or reports, but is merely used for documentation purposes. In order for this loss to be utilized by analysis tools, the loss must be added to the total loss for the port.

GlobalID

GlobalID

Yes

This field contains a unique number (GUID) that is generated and maintained by ArcGIS. This value is used for all relationships in the ArcFM data model and is required for Fiber Manager to function properly.

FiberParent

GUID

Yes

This field contains the GlobalID of the parent object to the current object.

ThisFiberClassModelName

text

Yes

This field stores the class model name assigned to the feature class on which the field resides. It is used in conjunction with the FiberParentClassModelName field to determine the GlobalID that will be placed in the FiberParent field.

FiberParentClassModelName

text

Yes

This field stores the class model name assigned to the feature class that is the parent of the class on which the field resides. It is used in conjunction with the ThisFiberClassModelName field to determine the GlobalID that will be placed in the FiberParent field.

FiberChildClassModelName

text

Yes

This field stores the class model name of a child object to the object on which the field resides.
