R&M unveiled its new Cat. 8.1, Netscale 72 and inteliPhy net network cabling solutions in the Middle East. The Netscale 72 offers the highest density of FO ports and can be used to create large spine-leaf network architectures in cloud data centres and facilitate fast migration to a new network.
And inteliPhy net is R&M’s easy-to-operate DCIM solution for the asset, capacity and change management in data centres. The solution attaches importance to a simplified representation and convinces by its intuitive, web-based operation.
Commenting on the launches, Michel Riva, CEO at R&M said, “We are proud to bring to the Middle East these innovative solutions that represent the pinnacle of technology in their respective cabling domains. 2020 will be a landmark year for the whole region with Dubai hosting the Expo 2020, opening new horizons for the sustainable future of our planet. The Middle East is also one of the most important sales regions for R&M and a focus for our activities in the coming year. We are proud to be among the top three providers of connectivity, exciting our customers in the government, telecom provider and enterprises sectors with next-generation networks.”
Alfred Tharwat, Head of Training & Data Center Consultancy, R&M MEA & Turkey then introduced attendees to the company’s new Cat. 8.1 cabling system. This new cabling solution is designed for data centres and office LANs and supports up to 40 Gigabit/s Ethernet (GbE) – the fastest data transmission rate that local networks with structured copper cabling can achieve today. In line with the specifications of the ISO/IEC and TIA standards, the company guarantees 40GbE performance for 24-meter permanent links and the up to 30-meter channel depending on the patch cords used.

With Netscale 72 we have shifted the balance further towards intelligence, monitoring and automation,” said Dr. Thomas Wellinger, Market Manager Data Center, R&M.
