• Test Lab Automation

    100% automation can't be achieved without automating the physical layer

    Manual cabling presents many challenges and inhibits automation

    • Manually set up test topologies are time consuming and prone to error.
    • Manual topology configuration compromises the efficiency of existing automation systems.
    • 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

    • Connect your lab infrastructure to the Layer 1 switch: a "wire-once" scenario.
    • Topologies are created using software command and are activated in milliseconds.
    • 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

    • Support of multiple management interfaces simplifies integration to a variety of systems. 
    • Realize the full potential of your existing automation systems.
    • Used in conjunction with test automation systems scheduling, reservations, and equipment usage tracking can be implemented.
    • Maximize lab efficiency and equipment utilization.
