is rapidly gaining in importance, turning into
a deciding factor for the future of entire companies.
Many know from personal experience what dramatic
consequences data losses caused by cabling infrastructure
problems can have. In some hard cases major network
failures even financially ruined entire companies.
In innovative development work R&M
has created new products, guaranteed to rule out
such ghastly worst-case scenarios. And thanks
to its modular design, the new security system
can even be fitted to a cabling system at a later
needing tools, thus fulfilling highest security
in passive cabling infrastructure
Neutral studies prove that 70%
of all network failures and crashes result
from faulty cabling infrastructure or
erroneous manipulation of connecting cables.
When evaluating the passive cabling system
it is important to carefully check if
security aspects are integrally supported
and easily implemented. R&M
is an expert in this field and offers
manifold solutions with new, innovative
and patented products.
Three levels to the max
The new security system by R&M
easily complies with all of the customersí
various security demands and wishes.
Security level 1:
The optical colour coding supports
correct connecting of the respective cables.
The colour coding is easily
applied to the connection cables and ports. When
applications are being changed within the network,
the already positioned colour coding can be just
as easily and tool-free exchanged with other colours.
Security level 2:
For effective prevention of uncertain
states in the network and protection of sensitive
network boards, this patented mechanical-visual
coding ensures security on a mechanical level,
effectively preventing any wrong connecting of
a cable to a wrong port.
Security level 3:
This security level even adds a third
dimension. Here, new, patented products guarantee
secure network connections of the future. A protective
sleeve, the Plug Guard, requires a special key
to release the connection, so that a connecting
cable can never again be inadvertently unplugged.
Security is further enhanced with R&Mís
Safe Clip, a special brightly coloured
device that also rules out accidental disconnection.
Thanks to Safe Clip the connecting cables are
now also protected on active equipment-side. Once
secured these connections can only be released
by trained and authorised people. Any risk of
data loss is quite simply
These new products show an impressive
range of applications Ė they are obviously ideal
for banks, stock exchanges, schools, hotels and
hospitals, and let emergency call control units
available. Thanks to R&Mís
security system far-reaching and costly consequences
of erroneous manipulation or missing connecting
cables are finally history.
The need for secure transmissions and
high data availability has grown tremendously
these last two years, due to very high failure
costs. About 80% of all problems in an overall
today (incl. active components and software) result
from bad layer-1 products. R&M
simply avoids such problems with an ingenious
product line. The answer is this modular security
concept, allowing the customer to install the
security level best suited to his needs in a convenient
and easy way. Another outstanding feature is that
out-lets, patch panels and patch cords can also
be fitted to the required security level at a
later stage. No other manufacturer can offer these
