R&M, the Swiss provider of network cabling infrastructure, has extended its product range for high-speed data networks on seagoing vessels to include fibre-optic cabling and Cat. 6A RJ45 systems. These new product lines enable data transmission over 10 Gigabit Ethernet to provide high-speed connectivity on board ships and offshore platforms.
R&M, the Swiss developer and provider of cabling systems, is introducing the Netscale Blade Cabling Manager (BCM) to connect vertical and horizontal modular switches in cloud networks.
Cloud data centres are getting larger, and enterprises are embracing cloud networking for their private clouds. Modular high-density port switches are the building blocks for the modern cloud. The Netscale BCM is specially designed for modular high-density port switches and enables a reliable, flexible, and highly efficient cable infrastructure throughout the data centre.
R&M, the Swiss provider of cabling systems for network infrastructure, is adding new options for equipping fibre-optic distribution racks and cabinets. Distributor housings are now available in two sizes compatible with standard 19-inch racks and cabinets.
The KombiModule comes as five units (5U) or 10 units (10U) high, to provide more options when building distribution sites for large networks. The 5U version is new to the range and offers space for up to 288 plug or 576 splice-only connections, while the 10U model can accommodate up to 576 plug or 1152 splice connections.
Swiss cabling specialist R&M is putting a new generation of patch boxes for fiber optic networks on the market. With these platforms for 19" racks, you can terminate up to 48 fibers in one unit (1U). For the first time, a common basic model accommodates both breakout cabling and splice cabling. FibereasyRack 2 is the name of the version for breakout cabling. It contains a loose tube tray. The version for splice cabling is called UniRack 2 and contains a removable splice tray plate.
