Give this a look.  It can track to the cross-connect level,  then provide a one-line drawing. Application is web driven and expandable.  It should be able to do what you need.

Subject: Physical Layer fiber Software Tools?

I am hoping someone could help me out with some suggestions for any software that is available, for individuals that are doing physical layer wiring in a data center?

The idea is the technician is performing the fiber runs from say RACK 111 router AAA port 1/1/1 to RACK 222 router BBB port 1/1/1

The fiber is connected to a LIU in the TOP of the rack, and then will require various cross connects to get to the other rack. If the various racks and LIU's are pre-populated into the software, and then a standard for the fiber labels is also installed ahead of time into the software tool.

The technician has a tablet or laptop to enter the data, and then it will print out a cable label based on the info entered into the tool. The back-end data base is updated for each fiber so the complete path is known.
This way its a one step process.

Maybe my description of this is readily available or have other companies developed a custom software tool to achieve this?



Appreciate any feedback.
