Test Lab Automation
100% automation can't be achieved without automating the physical layer
Manual cabling presents many challenges and inhibits automation
Remote access to test sets, network simulation equipment, and DUTs is nullified by having to locally configure the physical layer.
Simulation of certain network failure conditions and cable breaks are imprecise or impossible.
A Layer 1 switch automates physical cabling in the lab
Complicated test schemes can be stored and easily recreated.
Total remote access to the lab.
Full wire-speed unicast, multicast and broadcast mapping options further simplify cabling dilemmas.
Cable break simulation with programmable start/stop and duration simplify real-life network scenarios.
Integrate with existing automation systems
