Active Network Management
In areas where there are multiple complex constraints affecting a number of customers over a long time period, full active network management systems will be implemented. Distributed control systems continually monitor all the limits on the network and then allocate the maximum amount of capacity to customers in that area, based on the date their connection was accepted. This Last In, First Out (LIFO) hierarchy prioritises the oldest connections when issuing capacity, but is scalable so that new entrants will get access to the capacity when it becomes available.
An example of the Connection Offer for this alternative connection can be found here.
The following table reflects the current plan for ANM deployment, though the order and dates are subject to change following an annual review of network status and customer enquiries.
