Egyptian mobile operator Mobinil has announced the completion of a major cabling infrastructure project at its new offices and data centre in Egypt.

The project has seen Swiss cabling specialist Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) deploy its structured cabling solutions at the Nile City Tower in Cairo, where the Mobinil — the Egyptian Company for Mobile Services — offices and data centre are located.

Work on the project was started in 2004 when Mobinil decided to relocate its offices from the Cairo World Trade Centre.

At the time the mobile operator specified that it wanted easy-to-maintain global panels for its mounting plates and voice panels which could be used to integrate Mobinil’s voice network with its data network.

“R&M were selected for their domain expertise and advanced cabling product portfolio, which include Level-3 security products that comply with our required high specifications,” said Kamal Kamel, manager, Data Network & Security, Mobinil.

Once cabling solutions had been successfully deployed at the new Mobinil offices, R&M was selected again to provide the cabling infrastructure for the company’s new data centre.

It provided copper and fibre backbone for the facility with R&M 64 Cat. 6 global and over 100 fibre panels.

“In line with Mobinil’s commitment to constantly provide the highest level of service to its customers, we always work with the most reliable and experienced partners in their respective fields, which is why we were proud to work with R&M,” stated Iskander Shalaby, president and CEO of Mobinil.

“We are delighted to have been chosen by Mobinil as the structured cabling supplier for such an important project,” said Laurent Amestoy, regional general manager, R&M Middle East and Africa (MEA).

“We are confident that with R&M enterprise cabling in place at Mobinil offices and data centre, they will enjoy the rewards of scalable, reliable and proven network infrastructure for all their communication needs now and in the future,” he added.
