FM45 brings freedom to the construction site

June 22, 2018

Field- mountable RJ45 connector from R&M now also available as a Cat. 6A angled version / Suitable for Power over Ethernet

WETZIKON / BENGALURU, India – June 22, 2018 – R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is extending its range of field-mountable FM45 network connectors. The FM45 comes as a straight or angled version for Cat. 5e connections, as well as a shielded version with metal housing. For high-performance connections of the category Cat. 6A, R&M offers shielded and unshielded types in an angled or straight form. There is also a variant with an outer housing for protection class IP67 for industrial applications.

Standard-compliant connections can be established anywhere without any special tools with the FM45. Connection termination just takes a minute and conductors no longer need to be stripped. When pressing the wiring cover closed, contact is made by means of IDCs. The tin-coated R&M IDCs guarantee gas-tight, vibration-resistant and corrosion-protected wiring of stranded and solid cable with tensile strength and long-term stability.

The FM45 enables data transmission up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Its specifications and attenuation values surpass the parameters defined in the standard. The Cat. 6A type is used to install Class EA channels in accordance with the ISO/IEC 11801 standard. It also supports the deployment of Power over Ethernet to 4PPoE. The FM45 additionally allows a combined A and B wiring of the cables. As an option, you can attach colored coding elements or IP protection sleeves.

Areas of application are structured cabling, local data networks, direct connections, bulk connections, switch links and lots of other applications of twisted-pair copper cabling. Industrial Ethernet, bus and data connections in building automation, security and communications technology, the Internet of Things and home networks are also among the FM45 connector’s areas of application.

The FM45 is ideal when existing buildings are to be converted into smart ones. In addition to old installations, new network cables and RJ45 jacks have to be installed. The FM45 can lead to fast solutions in these cases. Installers have the flexibility to decide on site how the cable is to be laid, where it is to be cut, and also where the connector is to be placed. They can react to customers’ requirements, changes of plan as well as surprises without any wastage. In many cases, using the FM45 saves having to install outlets.

Retrofitting of WLAN access points for better radio coverage both inside and outside buildings can easily be carried out using field-terminable connectors. Spontaneous network installations for concerts, trade shows and events can also be implemented with the FM45. Finally the FM45 connectors are used as support for servicing and maintenance, temporary installations or when repairing networks. This means installers can respond to acute challenges in the project.

IceWarp is GDPR Compliant

June 21, 2018

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the largest and the most comprehensive EU legal act of personal data storage and processing in history. Adopted on 14 April 2016, it becomes applicable after a two-year transition period, on May 25th
  • Being GDPR ready, IceWarp solutions can improve companies IT further

It’s spring and GDPR is all around. And there is much confusion about it. IceWarp has been working almost for a year now, to set everything up, both technically and legislatively, for this global cornerstone of digital security. IceWarp is now fully GDPR compliant.

GDPR is not just about the product. For a company, GDPR means significant changes in inner processes to meet its baseline. The goals of GDPR are promising – to grant more control over personal data to every EU citizen and to simplify the regulatory environment of international business. But what is personal data anyway? According to EU officials, “Personal data is any information relating to an individual. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, your posts on social networking websites, your medical information, or your computer’s IP address.” (GDPR press release, European Commision)

GDPR is not all about digital security though. The new law enforcement is affecting mostly company’s inner procedures – a way of storing data, managing levels of clearance and updating data policies. In short, that means sleepless nights for company’s lawyer and a lot of paperwork for the rest. Otherwise, penalties will be severe.

Setting up your IT with GDPR Compliant Server

In case your software is not fully GDPR ready, opt for a server which is. Ensure that all latest patches of all critical components of the system, including openssl, certificates etc., are up-to-date.

In terms of IT infrastructure, make sure that you follow the general best practices of IT security, including remote access security, firewall security, password complexity enforcements, and malware protection.

There are also some other simple steps, you may want to take to be even more in the line with GDPR regulations:

  • Data loss protection – be sure you’re using SmartAttach and Archive functions
  • Grant only a mandatory access to a server – according to a level of clearance, lower the number of people with wide access to a server
  • Enable 2-factor authentication – for server administrators, simply use IceWarp Authenticator, which works smoothly for almost any IT admin, or set second authentication method like i.e. SMS
  • S/MIME keys – start digitally signing and encrypting your messages using S/MIME, but be aware of a significant increase of computing power needed
  • Levels of clearance – do a permission audit, deny an access to nonessential personnel, set different passwords to the most secure directories
  • Use user accounts only – we don’t recommend running IW under the root account, using dedicated user accounts instead
  • Data searching – set authorized individual, who have permission to seek through Email Archive and Full-text search
  • Erasing in person – make sure that erasing is done by the person who owns the data
  • Use system logs – enable system maintenance logs on your server, this allows you to track every action on a server, along with user authentication and activity

GDPR super-power is coming

IceWarp On-premise and Cloud are fully GDPR compliant at the moment. Things get more complicated when it comes to full-text search for personal data though. Because of complexity of GDPR and its maintenance demands, a built-in search engine isn’t enough. That’s why GedAI has been created.

GedAI is a whole new product mainly addressing GDPR compliance of companies. GedAI locates personal data, archives them and creates GDPR reports. With full-text search and advanced filtering options, you will be able to process terabytes of personal data from various sources of your server in just a few clicks. 


SUSE Helps Customers Capitalize on Kubernetes with Enhanced CaaS Platform

June 20, 2018

SUSE solution enables customers to accelerate application delivery to meet the demands of the digital economy

NUREMBERG, Germany / BENGALURU, India – June 20, 2018 – SUSE® today unveiled SUSE CaaS Platform 3, the next advancement of the solution that accelerates delivery of modern applications for the digital economy. SUSE CaaS Platform delivers Kubernetes innovations in a complete enterprise-class container management solution that lets application development and DevOps teams more easily deploy, manage and scale container-based applications and services.

SUSE is focused on delivering an exceptional operator experience with SUSE CaaS Platform. With deep competencies in infrastructure, systems, process integration, platform security, lifecycle management and enterprise-grade support, SUSE ensures IT operations teams can deliver the power of Kubernetes to their users quickly, securely and efficiently.

In this era of digital transformation, IT organizations need to be more agile than ever,” said Gerald Pfeifer, Vice President of Products and Technology Programs at SUSE. “Properly deployed, Kubernetes leads to agility. But before application teams can use Kubernetes, the platform itself needs to be in place. It needs to be secure, well controlled and maintained. SUSE CaaS Platform helps enterprises provide and consume Kubernetes more easily with a complete solution that is designed with the platform operator, as well as the platform user, in mind.”

Massimo Montecchi, CEO/CTO of IT Solutions Provider BS Company Srl, said, “Bringing Kubernetes to life is more than just installing the software and turning it on. We needed to integrate the platform into our larger IT environment, including systems, processes and cloud infrastructure. It was straightforward with SUSE CaaS Platform, which helped us get Kubernetes up and running quickly. SUSE CaaS Platform also gives us enterprise-grade reliability and flexibility that are critical in this era of ever-evolving technology and innovation.”

SUSE CaaS Platform 3 expands choices for cluster optimization, provides new support for more efficient and secure container image management, and simplifies deployment and management of long-running workloads. It allows customers to:

  • Optimize cluster configuration with expanded data center integration and cluster reconfiguration options. Setting up a Kubernetes environment is simplified with improved integration of private and public cloud storage and automatic deployment of the Kubernetes software load balancer. A new SUSE toolchain module also allows customers to tune the MicroOS container operating system to support custom configuration. With the new cluster reconfiguration capabilities, they can transform a start-up cluster into a scalable and highly available environment.
  • Manage container images more efficiently and securely with a local container registry. Customers can download a container image from an external registry once, then save a copy in their local registry for sharing among all nodes in the cluster. Connecting to an internal proxy rather than an external registry and downloading from a local cache rather than a remote server improves security and performance whenever a cluster node pulls a trusted image from the local registry. In addition, the lightweight CRI-O container runtime, designed specifically for Kubernetes, is introduced in SUSE CaaS Platform 3.
  • Simplify deployment and management of long-running workloads through the Kubernetes Apps Workloads API. This API generally facilitates orchestration (self-healing, scaling, updates, termination) of common types of workloads.

Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), said, “Innovations from the CNCF community, like the SUSE CaaS Platform, help deliver the power of Kubernetes to more enterprise developers and make it easier for organizations to deploy and manage their own cloud native environments.”
