R&M, one of world’s leading structured cabling systems & solutions providers, has launched ‘Better connected’ initiative. The focus is on the entire life cycle of data networks – from planning to multiple years of operation. The initiative proves why networks incorporating R&M components help to save time and money.
“It is all about taking more into account than just the material and installation costs and the common standards when planning data networks. A top-quality installation with higher initial costs is always the less expensive solution over the long term”, says Hermann Christen, Market Development Manager at R&M.
Experts in the more than 40 R&M branches worldwide will be providing consulting services to the markets as part of the initiative. At the same time new training programs are being offered by the R&M Academy which awards places to interested planners, project leads, installers and distributors. Academy graduates become qualified R&M partners. They receive exclusive certificates as well as comprehensive specialist, technical and logistical support in network projects.
Visitors to the site will find out why better quality cabling saves money long term. They can also consult a criteria catalog which supports them in the definition of project goals, the evaluation of the infrastructure as well as in the selection of qualified project partners and services.
“The network breakdowns of recent years caused immense damage. Companies lost millions in terms of revenue within just minutes, not to mention their good reputation. Customers lost faith in data centers, the cloud, the Internet of Things and convenient online services”, views R&M of current risks. Hermann Christen
Cabling systems have to be able to be installed fast and safely without any complications. This is how to avoid oversights and errors. R&M products usually surpass the attenuation and transmission values recommended by the standards and thus have sufficient reserve to be able to commission installed networks without any delay.
