Tellabs recently created and has made available a BIM object family for the company’s Optical LAN solution. The object family is based on intelligent 3D Revit and includes the following.
- Smart 3D Revit objects for optical line terminals and optical network terminals (including dimensions, clearances, weight, temperature, humidity, power, thermals, connectors, connector attributes, and hyperlinks to Tellabs datasheets)
- Generic families for fiber and power components outside of Tellabs’ families
- Buildable families for IT, network, wireless, smart building, and IoT objects
- Embedded intelligence for connection values on family components
- The ability to automatically generate smart schedules for all connected products
“The BIM library helps architects, engineers, designers, and consultants save time while designing innovative fiber-based networks, make intelligent decisions with spatial-aware 3D visualization, improve change management throughout the project lifecycle, and increase design accuracy by avoiding errors that arise from 2D drawings,” the company said when announcing this new offering.
“It was important to invest in 3D Revit to empower architects, engineers and integrators to design optical LAN in 3D modeling to visualize all the advantages of fiber-based networks,” said Rich Schroder, Tellabs’ president and CEO. “One of the greatest benefits of this optical LAN BIM family is the ability to automatically generate smart schedules, making design work easier, faster, and more accurate.”
