Test Lab Automation
The need to automate test labs
Automating a test lab provides an organization the opportunity to test devices, applications, and services faster and to establish 24/7 operations from anywhere in the world. Test lab automation can greatly improve the cycle time of repetitive test procedures such as regression testing and build, and performance tests. The use of layer 1, or physical layer, matrix switches can help simplify the network by providing instant and reliable topology changes via software, versus the error-prone and time consuming option of manual cable moves.
Test labs: complex, error prone environments
As traditional test labs grow in complexity, organizations face significant challenges in fully utilizing equipment due to limited remote access and sharing. Network and application testing requires speed and agility, but often takes a tremendous amount of time and resources to implement correctly.

Solutions you can trust
NETSCOUT understands the challenges you face in today’s complex test lab environment. Let us show you how our solution enables test lab automation.
Traditional Test Lab Environment
Traditional test labs grow in complexity as equipment is added. Manual connections to test tools and network elements become cumbersome, and changes to those connections become time consuming and vulnerable to error. This scenario results in a slow, complex, and error-prone environment, where expensive equipment and personnel resources are poorly utilized.
