Factory Acceptance Testing at Tyco

PIPE’s John and Robin are on route to the Tyco factory in the US for the next two weeks, performing Factory Acceptance Tests on the station equipment’s software and hardware.  Once these tests are completed successfully, the SLTE and PFE equipment will ship to each of the Cable Landing Stations for installation.

Acceptance testing generally involves running a suite of tests on each sub system (in this case the PFE and SLTE).  Each individual test, known as a case, exercises a particular operating conditionof the equipment and will result in a pass or fail outcome.
