Cisco Compliance Telecom & Network System are performing Synchronization test & measures according-ly to ITU-T international standards. Measures requires selected high cost instrumentation so the team want to have automation to run measures 24/7, in a way to optimize the investment made while purchasing the instrumentation.
Instrumentation is actually in Cisco laboratory, building SJ-16 and there are several rationales that do not allow the instrumentation to be moved out from the lab.
Synchronization measures require long amount of time: the single test duration is from 4 hours to 28 hours. A test sequence the automation shall manage will be 4 to 7 days duration. Code shall be robust enough to target those test durations.
We have developed automation platforms included: BA (Logic system, flow, algorithm, etc), test automation architecture to control high-speed instruments with multi-thread.
– C language, C++, TCL/Tk, Script, Java, etc.
– LabVIEW/Lab window.
– Dedicated platform and framework
– Code validation, driver modification.
– Optimization and debugging.
