Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) is aiming to introduce greater flexibility and mobility into the workplace, alongside enhanced convenience in the workplace, with its RCC45 connection module. The vendor is transforming existing RJ45 solutions into a multitalented cabling device capable of delivering both power and plastic optical fibre.

"The RCC45 has some additional features from the existing RJ45 solution and the real benefit is that we are now combining the RJ45 with either plastic fibre or power, and this is opening up lots of applications for customers. Power, for example, whenever you have a computer you obviously need an RJ45 to plug into your network and you need also power. So with the RCC45 we are combining everything within one outlet, within one RJ45," says Laurent Amestoy, regional manager MEA, R&M Middle East & Africa.

While the vendor believes that the product will prove particularly beneficial when deployed in offices, hotels or other buildings, R&M is also suggests that the solution could boost performance levels in facilities and act as a catalyst for a move into the residential market.

Furthermore, the product should help to introduce cost flexibilities, investment protection and simplified installation. "If the customer wants a future proof installation or they want in the future to get plastic fibre to their desktop, which is the way we believe it [cabling] will go because of cost, then everything is already there [with the RCC45]," says Amestoy.
