Dedicated Plant

Dedicated plant allows you to leave connections and paths associations to a room and jack without having a device associated. When you create a device, by adding a room and jack, you are dedicating the connections and paths to the room and jack. When you remove the device, the connections and paths stay dedicated to the room and jack.

There are two types of dedicated plant incorporated into cairs.net: Dedicated without Port and Dedicated with Port. The first type, Dedicated without Port, is the one we are all familiar with, this dedication includes room, jack, connections, and paths.

The second type, Dedicated with Port, goes one-step further and includes the port number. This means that the port number is dedicated to the connections, paths, room, and jack. If you have previously selected a port within the device properties, the dedicated plant port overrides your selection.

When you add a new device, by selecting the room and the jack, the Load Dedicated Plant button becomes available and once clicked, automatically loads the complete connectivity.

Making a Connection Plant

You can designate any connection record that you have created as dedicated plant.  All dedicated plant records need to include a room and jack.  Once you have your complete cross connection information in place, within the Dedicated Plant column, click on the dropdown arrow to access a list, from the list select one of the following options:

·         Not Dedicated – this is the default selections, this means that once the device is removed from the database, the connection, path, and port are available to use elsewhere.

·         Dedicated with Port – when selected you are including the port in the dedication

·         Dedicated without Port – when selected you are dedicating the connection, path, room and jack

Once selected, within the Actions ribbon group, click the Save button (save and stay) to continue working with this set or click the Save & Close button (save and exit).
