Swiss cabling specialist Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) on Friday announced the recent completion of the first MEA installation of its CAT6A UTP ISO (10G) with 650MHz integrated solution at the Millennium Hotel Amman in Jordan.

Millennium Hotel Amman is the newest luxury 5-star business-lifestyle hotel in the Jordanian capital. The end-to-end cabling solution uses CAT6A UTP ISO connectivity technology and the OM3 fibre-optic vertical solution. 

"Based on my long experience in the industry working with various cabling solutions, I found that the performance of the R&M CAT6A UTP (10G) with 650MHz cabling infrastructure solution was excellent, with high bandwidth and capacity capabilities," said Munir AbuZeid, executive director of Meda Consulting Engineers and designer of Millennium Hotel Amman's infrastructure.

"We fully trust that the installed R&M products will not only meet, but also exceed the expectations of Millennium Hotel."

The installation was carried out by R&M's partner in Jordan, Applied Technical Systems (ATS) with direct involvement and supervision by the R&M Levant office in Amman. The project took two months to be completed by eight R&M-certified installers from ATS. Since this was the first R&M CAT6A ISO project in the region, certified QPP training courses were conducted on-site by the R&M Levant technical team.

 "A world-class hotel like Millennium Hotel Amman which targets the most elite customers in the region required a 5-star cabling infrastructure solution that facilitates intelligence services for all customer facilities and ensured the highest level of network stability and availability," said Ibrahim Zananiri, IT manager at Millennium Hotel Amman.

"At the same time, it had to have a contemporary design that matched the modern design of the hotel. The R&M solution ticked all the boxes and with local representation and support from its technically proficient partner ATS, the company was able to not only meet, but also exceed our expectations."

The solution was tested through Fluke DTX-1800 and, according to R&M, registered a performance of 650MHz for the complete channel and for all installed points.

"We are proud to have been able to achieve success on this landmark project thanks to the quality, speed, flexibility and reliability of R&M solutions," said Mohammad Sweidan, area manager, Levant Area & Kuwait at R&M.

"The team spirit and close collaboration with our partner ATS was instrumental in delivery of the project to the satisfaction of the customer. We look forward to many such successful projects in the region in the future."
