Media Cross Connect Series

True test lab automation
Test lab environments are constantly evolving, continually improving efficiency by utilizing sophisticat-
ed software solutions to enable high levels of automation. However, physical connectivity of equipment
remains a laborious manual process. Our Media Cross Connect (MCC) Series provides the missing piece
for true test lab automation. Connect each lab device to the MCC just once and all topology changes can
be made remotely via SW with no need to change the configuration of the physical network connectivity

Our MCC is a physical layer switch (OSI Layer 1) that allows users to connect any port to any other port within the system
through software control. Ideal for use in any testing environment, our MCC increases productivity and reduces capital and
operational expenses. Equipment inventories needed to support the test workload are minimized by sharing expensive test
sets and test bed infrastructure among users. Storing and recalling frequently used topologies, scripting configurations, and
automating tests increases lab productivity. Eliminating manual manipulation of optical cables minimizes the effects of
cable wear and fiber contamination on test results, which produces more accurate tests and fewer re-tests. Destructive tests
such as cable breaks or port failover simulation are easily accomplished using our MCC’s flexible mapping configurations.
