Financial institution HC Securities has completed installation of end-to-end networking cabling from Swiss specialist Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) at its headquarters in Cairo. The implementation was completed with the assistance of local partner and systems integrator Channel Computer Services.

HC Securities' range of products and services include asset management and brokerage. The firm's work in the financial sector merited the installation of a high-performance network with as little downtime as possible. As a result, it chose R&M to install a network based on the latter's Real10 system and OM3 fibre cables. The new network incorporates as many as 1,000 points and is certified for the latest 10Gbit standards.

Ahmed Ezz, the IT Manager of HC Securities, commented on the installation: "Given our stringent requirements for a robust secure network with no downtime, R&M's broad range of high performance enterprise cabling renowned for its zero defect components and future proof design has proven to be the optimal solution for us."

"R&M's product portfolio enables us the ability to customise installations easily versus other product ranges.  Its Swiss quality and zero defect components due to its 100 percent testing methodology have also resulted in smooth installations and problem free networks post implementation," added Antoine Nakhla, GM of Channel Computer Services.

Alfred Tharwat, Area Manager, Africa at R&M also stated: "R&M is delighted to have connected HC Securities Headquarters with R&M's latest range of enterprise cabling, comprising the innovative Real 10 Solution.  Our forward looking and modular designs optimise network performance and deliver on the requirements in a finance sector environment where mission critical stability and security is imperative."
