R&M, the Swiss developer and supplier of cabling systems, has improved the FO Field field-installable fibre-optic connector. FO Field version 1.1 is now compatible with all cable types available on the market, including rigid 900µm buffered fibres with sheathing made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

Swiss connectivity systems provider R&M is introducing a new HD traffic access point (TAP) module for supervision of network and application performance.
This module enables ongoing monitoring of network and application performance using passive optical tapping that is fully integrated into the structured cabling infrastructure. The TAP Module is part of the HD product family and compatible with the same HD and R&MinteliPhy hardware as a standard module, allowing for scalable port diagnostic capability.
Are data networks working at all company locations? Many IT managers working for larger companies ask themselves this question on an almost daily basis. Using the R&MinteliPhy automated infrastructure management system, R&M customers can now monitor every plug connection in real time, regardless of the location.
Reichle & De-Massari (R&M), the Swiss developer and provider of connectivity systems for network infrastructure, has partnered with with Virtual Instruments, the specialist in infrastructure performance management, to provide better visibility into network performance.
As a result of this partnership, R&M today launched its Total Network Visibility monitoring platform, a holistic approach to network visibility that integrates passive traffic access points (TAPs) seamlessly into its automated infrastructure management system R&MinteliPhy.
