R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures and SunTelephone Co. Ltd. (hereafter SunTel), a leading distributor of communication and IT infrastructure products in Japan, are teaming up to provide a range of solutions for the Japanese Enterprise LAN and Data Center markets. 

The companies are providing fully integrated solutions for Japan’s Enterprise and Data Centers, many of which are currently upgrading, or preparing to upgrade, from Cat. 5e - 65% of today’s market - to Cat. 6 and Cat. 6A. For customers, the cooperation will result in enhanced consulting and service, faster deliveries and improved day-to-day response. 


R&M will be providing a selection of R&Mfreenet Cat. 6 and Cat. 6A products and its InteliPhy Automated Infrastructure Management Solution for high-density requirements (EL/ISO 48 PP). R&MinteliPhy supports 100% real time remote physical control of links and assets and centralized management of networks of any size at any location. This perfectly matches SunTel’s ‘one stop services for Data Centers’ concept, based on a broad product offering, from cabling to DCIM, and deliveries planned around service launch.
