Automation of physical layer test benches is a complex task as it requires in-depth knowledge of every test function in a total test setup. Automation software in physical layer is often in real-time as variation of physical layer parameters are required during the testing, be it a static or dynamic Use Test Case. Some Standards require hundreds of tests. Testing of CPE's, Gateways, DPU's, DSLAM ports .. is no longer a matter of man-hours, but also a matter of expertise and qualified resources.
The Sparnex Instruments Automation platform ICL is key for all Sparnex Instruments test and simulation systems. Test lab operators can run tests with ICL without in-depth analysis of the Use Test Case. This concept is an one-off automation environment that is parameter controlled - from the Standard under test or the Telecom Operator specific test plan to individual requirements of the lab manager and the test engineers.

The first ICL compatible system was launched in 1995. Today it is the most powerful test automation platform that integrates any function of a physical layer test and simulation environment.
All Sparnex Instruments test products, systems and platforms are ICL compatible.
