As a longtime lab denizen I find this belief that you can get good quality measurements through a layer of remote switching gear and there-and-back cable runs, something between humorous and puzzling. If your equipment management fantasy requires me to put all this "stuff" into my carefully crafted bench or rack setups, I'll say "no thanks", eat the budgetary cost and lock the door. Maybe it works for you if everything is "digital" and "slow". But if your product can be tested with a bunch of long cables, switches and random reallocations / e-teardowns in the mix, you're not working on very challenging stuff. It all seems like another matrix-management pipe dream to me. Works great if you've got a sea of uniform and adequate resources. Now tell me the story about how the one guy who can do it, works when you randomly redeploy the one critical piece of gear that makes his rack work.
