#DicasOZmap | Technical reserve

The technical reserve is a widely used item in fiber optic networks, but do you know how to document it in OZmap? This tip will teach you how to work with it within our system.

To start, we need to add this attribute to the map and for that you can go through different methods.

The first method would be to open the element you want to add and place the values individually. When opening a pole, you can place the amount reserved for each cable that passes through that specific point. As for cables, you can add the value of the technical reserve for each post where it passes.

To register the value is quite simple, just click on the default value, enter the new one and click on “Apply” in the lower corner of the screen.

The boxes are also a good method to automatically insert reservations, in them you can define a value called “Default reservation”, which guarantees that all cables inserted in this box will receive that reserve footage at each of its ends. For example, if this value is changed to 30 meters, these footage will be added to each end of a cable, resulting in a total of 60 meters. This can be done on a specific box or on a whole type of box.

Now that your reservations are on the map, we can choose the way we will view them.

If you just want a sign of where they are located, it is possible to activate the layer “Technical reserve” in the side menu, with it, the location of the reserves will be marked on the map by a sign like the one in this image.

If you want to view the reserve footage of a single cable at all its points, it is necessary to right-click on it and select “Show technical reserve”.

It is also possible to obtain this view on several cables simultaneously, from an area report, you must go to the “Cables” tab, select all that you want to view the reservation and go to “Tools”, where you must click on “Reservation technique” and thus obtain the footage of the reserves directly on the map.

Now you are ready to represent your physical reserves in our system. So what did you think?
