Introduction to Communications Data Management for ArcGIS Enterprise

Communications Data Management for ArcGIS Enterprise can be used to map and manage coax, copper, fiber, and wireless communication asset information with the ArcGIS Utility Network.

The solution configures ArcGIS Enterprise and the ArcGIS Utility Network to be an authoritative repository of communications network information and provides workflows that facilitate capturing information correctly and keeping it up to date.

Communications Data Management for ArcGIS Enterprise delivers a data model that makes a utility network behave like a communication network, editing apps configured for ArcGIS Pro and preconfigured maps for data sharing. It also provides a sample utility network dataset so users can experience a utility network in a single-user environment.
