Daman connects new HQ with R&M cabling
New Cat 6a ISO solution will deliver high bandwidth connectivity
Health insurance company Daman has deployed cabling solutions from Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) to connect its new Abu Dhabi headquarters with a high bandwidth network.
The company has installed R&M's Cat.6a ISO solution which can deliver 10GbE connectivity. The Cat 6a ISO is also compliant with the ISO/IEC 11801 Class EA link standard which guarantees higher performance, quality and reliability than standard TIA Cat 6a.
R&M's Cat.6a solution has enabled Daman to gain superior performance, outstanding security margin for signal transmission, and wide performance scope for demanding applications. A notable feature is the solution's ability to support transmission frequencies of up to 650 MHz, which is a large step up over the 500Mhz specified by the Cat.6a standard.
Daman also utilized R&M's OM3 fiber-optic cabling for fibre backbone connectivity which is suitable for the current 10GbE application requirements and will also allow the insurance specialist to migrate seamlessly to 40GbE and even 100GbE.
The entire solution has been designed and deployed with the intention of implementing the R&MinteliPhy Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM) solution in the next phase of the project.
"We already shared a very good relationship with R&M and were solidly convinced by the quality of their solutions and the professionalism of their team. So when it came to laying the vital cabling infrastructure for our new headquarters, which would be the vital backbone to all our IT systems, the decision to go with R&M was straightforward," said Pradeep Ghosh, IT project consultant at Daman.
"We now have a system that exceeds our current expectations of performance and reliability. At Daman, we will continue to leverage the latest IT solutions to remain at the forefront of the industry. With R&M, we have managed to deploy the robust platform upon which we can now rapidly deploy applications and scale our services with confidence," Ghosh added.
"Daman is one of our key customers in the UAE and over 80% of their existing network infrastructure in the country is based on our solutions," said Mohammed Riyaz, area sales manager for UAE,Qatar,Oman and Iraq at R&M.
