The Utility Network Package Tools support the configuration of a utility network by providing an asset package and tools to create and configure a utility network with the properties needed to support your organization. The Utility Network Package Tools are comprised of an asset package, which is a file geodatabase that models the schema, properties, and data of a utility network; and tools that stage and import and export a utility network to and from an asset package. The tools, together with the Esri-provided asset package, sample data, and maps, allow you to quickly start working with a utility network.
Accelerate deployment and cost savings
The Utility Network Package Tools reduce cost and save time by automating common processes and eliminating the amount of manual processing when creating and configuring a utility network. Without the tools and asset packages, each step needs to be run in ArcGIS Pro or scripted in a lengthy Python script.
ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension
The Utility Network Package Tools enable organizations that manage networks to benefit from the advanced capabilities of the ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension by automating the creation of new utility networks.
Esri Technical Support for the Utility Network Package Tools is included in an organization's Esri Maintenance Program.
Validation of network design
One benefit of the Utility Network Package Tools, specifically with the Apply Asset Package tool, is complex validation performed prior to any database changes. This ensures that the definition of your network is sound prior to execution of the tool.
