Latest specialist magazine CONNECTIONS No. 62 from R&M now available. Business model for infrastructures in data centres. FTTH is making progress.
Wetzikon, May 10, 2022. Why do data center operators still take care of cables, racks and other infrastructure details in the computer room? The work involved in productive IT costs a lot of time. R&M has developed guidelines for a business model which promises to reduce the workload. R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, reports on this in the new specialist magazine CONNECTIONS No. 62.
As usual, the magazine also describes the trends in fiber optic and network technology. Readers learn, for example, how optical fibers with more cores exceed the usual physical limits of light transmission.
In addition, R&M is once again presenting the application possibilities of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) technology. It can, for example, help to save considerably more energy in buildings. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is also opening up new options for building automation. Planners should certainly pay attention to the new remote power supply categories RP1 to RP3 to ensure their PoE cabling works safely in the long term. R&M provides information on the criteria and presents the extended PoE Calculator.
Fiber optics on the rise
Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is spreading more and more, even in rural areas, and is now arriving directly in apartments. FO technology from R&M helps network operators to make rapid progress in FTTH building. The current issue of the magazine features relevant reference reports from northern Germany and Switzerland, along with other interesting case studies.
R&M manufactures fiber optic technology at various international sites. The manufacturing facility in Bulgaria was opened ten years ago and has quickly developed into the R&M competence center for fiber optics. This is also covered in the magazine.
