R&M, the globally active Swiss developer and supplier of cabling systems for high-end network infrastructures, has introduced its ThinCompact Data Center Cabling System. The latest innovation by R&M is a preterminated Cat. 6A S/FTP copper cable with an extraordinarily small outer diameter of only 13.9 mm. Despite its comprehensive shielding, it consumes 70% less volume in cable trays than conventional 6-link trunk cables and saves more than 50% in weight. This makes it the world’s thinnest and most flexible 6-link copper trunk cable.

Engineered for maximum design flexibility and high port density application (up to 48-ports in one rack space), the powerful and installation-friendly Cat. 6A system offers pre-terminated cable assemblies in custom lengths and configurations. R&MinteliPhy-ready 48-ports HD and 24-ports PC panels accept ThinCompact systems. These can be snapped in and out with one hand, for quick installation.

Superior performance, fast deployment

The new solution meets the requirements of Category 6A, Class EA (500MHz) in accordance with the current ISO/IEC 11801 2nd edition standard. Cables can run up to 60 meters and are available in Low Smoke Zero halogen versions. Each individual trunk cable is factory-tested and can also be used as Cat5e/6.

Superior performance, rapid and cost-efficient network deployment, high quality and easy redeployment make the R&M ThinCompact Data Center Cabling System the perfect infrastructure solution for today’s enterprise and commercial data centers.
