Connection Basics

Adding a Connection Type

Connection Type is the term used in cairs.net to describe each individual cable type, i.e. copper, cat IV, and etc.

1.    Click the Facilities menu.

2.    In the Navigation pane, click Connections.

3.    There are two ways to manage your connection types:

·         Within the toolbar directly above the Navigation pane, click the Manage Connection Types button.

·         Within the Actions pane, click the Manage Connection Types link.

4.    With either option, the Manage Connection Types window opens.

! If you are unable to view the Actions pane, you may need to use the scroll bar to reveal the menu choices on the right side of the Navigation pane, or using your mouse point at the Separation bar, and when the up/down arrow displays, right-click the line and hold it to pull the line down.  

5.    Click the field marked with an asterisk (*). To add a new record, complete the following fields (required fields are marked within an asterisk (*)):

·         Connection Type* - type the name of the connection

·         Multiple Channel – click the box to insert a checkmark indicating the connections associated with this type can have multiple assignments associated with each path. If you leave the field blank, when you associate this connection type, the connection paths can be used for a single assignment.

6.    To add another type, click the Save button and repeat step 5, as necessary.

7.    Within the Actions ribbon group, click Save (to save and stay) to continue working with connection types, or click Save & Close (to save and exit) to return to the Connection Group list.
