R&M introduces Antimicrobial Cabling Components for the Data Networks

October 22, 2018

R&MhealthLine range offers extended Hygienic solution for patients’ rooms, operating theaters, labs and the food industry

WETZIKON, Switzerland / BENGALURU, India – October 22, 2018 – R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is expanding its range of antimicrobial data outlets. And that makes the R&MhealthLine cabling program even more flexible to use. An R&MhealthLine installation prevents bacteria and microbes from reproducing on the surface of the protected components.

New to the R&MhealthLine program are three additional data outlets which make it easier to use the R&MhealthLine system in various application areas.

  • Hospitals use R&MhealthLine in rooms for patients, in diagnosis and therapy, as well as in operating theaters.
  • The antimicrobial cabling program is also perfect for use in all institutions and areas in which hygiene is a top priority, such as nursing homes, washrooms, waiting rooms, catering facilities, laboratories and production facilities for food and pharmaceuticals.

In these places, hygienic connection solutions are often required for data and communication networks. Conventional cabling technology cannot normally fulfill today’s hygiene requirements long term.

Silver ions in the surface of the plastic parts of R&MhealthLine products inhibit the growth of bacteria and microbes. This reduces bacterial contamination on the surface of protected components between the normal cleaning cycles. R&MhealthLine helps to minimize unintentional contamination with bacteria from the product surface when touching cabling components. Alongside the outlets and mounting plates with RJ45 sockets, the R&MhealthLine also comprises shielded and unshielded patch cords as well as protective caps and coding elements. They are compatible with the modular cabling system R&Mfreenet that covers all areas of structured building cabling.

Internationally, R&M enjoys an excellent reputation as a network outfitter of clinics and healthcare institutions.

DCW event witnessed more than 350 of the world’s leading suppliers delivering services and solutions to the data center market. More than 500 industry leading experts shared their insights and inspiration on the future of data center world. R&M showcased its innovative products: Netscale Blade Cabling Manager (BCM) and R&MinteliPhy with Port Monitoring Cords. The products received voluminous response and a positive feedback from the DCW attendees.

Gaurav Ahluwalia, Managing Director at R&M India said, “DCW event is a fruitful platform for the suppliers and vendors of the data center market world. It is great opportunity to display our cutting-edge products and services under single roof. We have accompanied few of our key partners and end-customers from India to the event and enriched them with the knowledge of R&M’s intelligent products which would accelerate their businesses. Overall, it’s a fantastic experience to be a part of DCW Singapore event.”

Dr. Thomas Wellinger, Market Manager Data Center at R&M addressed the crowd at the stall, and enriched them on the challenges faced by the current data center market and also shared his thoughts to overcome the problems. He presented R&MinteliPhy, an Automated Infrastructure Management to manage the physical infrastructure automatically in an intelligent way.

Speaking over the topic “The Self-Documenting Network Infrastructure”,Thomas Wellinger explained, “The more powerful networks become, the more complex physical infrastructures gets. There is a dire void in automated end to end connectivity management, while many network administrators still document their cabling plant manually. The R&MinteliPhy Port Monitoring Cords bridges a crucial segment of automated cabling management: the link between patch panel and equipment port“,

He further said, “With R&MinteliPhy, data centers immediately improve capacity utilization, profitability and availability. IT managers gain control over all ports and more. R&MinteliPhy helps with analysis and documentation, with the introduction of standardized processes, with all typical management tasks associated with passive infrastructures.”

R&M presents QXB study: Parallel Optical Connector with expanded beam technology

October 3, 2018

  • R&M held Fiber Connector Innovation presentation at the 44th ECOC in Rome
  • With the QXB, lenses are responsible for transmitting light between the contact surfaces of the optical fibers. The solution eliminates the need for cleaning the connector and makes high contact pressure, inspection and error search superfluous.

WETZIKON, Switzerland / ROME, Italy / BENGALURU, India – October 3, 2018 – At the 44th ECOC, R&M has presented a study on the development of innovative parallel optical connectors called QXB. In these connectors, fused silica lenses are responsible for the transmission of light between the optical fibers. R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is researching expanded beam technology together, with Data Speed Control GmbH. The technology partners provided information on the QXB study at the 44th European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) held from September 23 to 27 in Rome, Italy (show stand 716). Data Speed Control is a data center services provider domiciled in Eisenberg, Germany.

The expanded beam technology would have a whole range of benefits for the installation, operation and maintenance of passive FO infrastructures,” explains Dr. Thomas Wellinger, Market Manager Data Center and Study Lead at R&M.

The lenses made of high purity fused silica do away with the need for physical contact between the ends of the optical fibers. They form an array on the end face of the connector. One lens is assigned to every fiber. With multimode fibers, the beam can be increased sixteenfold, with single mode fibers sevenfold. The lenses have an anti-reflection coating. With the development of the fused silica lenses, we are really pushing the physical limits of optical connectivity,” says Dr. Thomas Wellinger.

In conventional FO connections, springs forcefully press the ends of the optical fibers together. This is the only way they can exchange the light signals with minimal attenuation loss. The contact surfaces have to be free of dust and aligned to the exact micrometer.

All these requirements are a thing of the past with QXB. The cleaning of the contact surfaces would be superfluous as the light signals are transmitted without any physical contact. QXB connectors are inserted into the adapter without any force regardless of the number of fibers. This alleviates handling and takes the pressure off the housing. Visual inspections and the time-consuming search for transmission errors are also a thing of the past. The measured values of a connection remain stable once installed and tested, even if the connector has been unplugged and plugged back in again several times.

The QXB is like an MPO connector. It can be planned with 12, 24 and 32 parallel fibers. MPO connectors always have to be completely removed if an individual fiber has to be cleaned or tested. All links are then offline. The performance of the MPO links can be negatively impacted from the plugging in and unplugging. You simply don’t have that problem with the QXB,” says Dr. Wellinger, and that means networks work much more reliably.

R&M also highlights the benefits in terms of operating expenses. Alongside installation, recurring cleaning, inspection and measurements play a major role for FO connectors. They increase with the number of fibers thus inflating maintenance costs. With QXB, this cost factor does not even exist.

The QXB will facilitate the work of infrastructure and SAN managers in hyperscale data centers and large corporate data centers considerably,”  predicts Dr. Thomas Wellinger.
