A Different Look at Network Management

R&M presents a bottom-up approach for infrastructure management in data centers. The specialist magazine CONNECTIONS No. 61 reports on innovations in cabling technology and the contribution fibre optic networks make to climate protection.

Wetzikon, October 18, 2021. Network security and the management of networks in data centers begin with the connector. R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, explains this bottom-up approach in its latest specialist magazine CONNECTIONS No. 61.

Carsten Ludwig, Market Manager Data Center, advocates a paradigm shift. In his article, he describes a pragmatic path to zero-defect production at the cabling level. With the bottom-up approach and automated management of complex infrastructures, data centers can meet today’s security needs on-demand.

In its latest specialist magazine, R&M also focuses on the social and ecological responsibility of the network industry. Wolfgang Huber, Head of Corporate Quality Management, answers topical questions on R&M’s sustainability policy. In an interview, he describes the goals and challenges R&M is currently facing.

Laurent Amestoy, Executive Vice President Asia Pacific, reports on R&M’s activities in India and China and how it represents the traditional and sustainable values of an independent Swiss family company in a global location.

Significant differences in energy consumption

In CONNECTIONS and the R&M blog, CTO Robert Merki explains the major differences in energy consumption and thus the carbon footprint of broadband networks. Based on energy consumption per bit rate, copper-based networks consume up to seventeen times more energy than full-fiber networks. Telecom services today already use two to three percent of the energy generated worldwide.

This is why R&M is committed to rapidly expanding fiber optic networks. R&M wants to contribute to climate protection with a range of innovations and new products for fiber optic cabling. Among other things, the specialist magazine presents the turnkey PoP stations developed by R&M. These cells enable network providers to significantly accelerate Fiber-to-the-Home cabling.

Case studies of exceptional customer projects underline R&M’s quality philosophy. The latest issue of the specialist magazine reports on solutions for the new NTT London 1 data center and the Swiss Tropical Health Institute as well as on an all-in-one solution for the new Eiger Express operated by Swiss Jungfraubahnen. In addition, readers will find out how northeast Brazil and the reggae metropolis of São Luís are entering the age of fiber optics.
