Verdun Mall has deployed a network based on R&M CAT6 and CAT7 cabling.

Lebanese retail group ABC has deployed a network based on R&M cabling for its new ABC Verdun mall.

The 1.5 million square foot mall in Beirut is now connected with state-of-the-art cabling infrastructure from R&M, which supports critical mall services including internet, point-of-sales systems, CCTV, digital signage, and Building Management System (BMS).

The installation time for the network was greatly reduced by use of the high-performance field-installable connector which made it possible to connect the FO Field connectors to a fibre cables at the site itself in under a minute. This innovation allowed the costly and time-consuming step of fusion splicing to be skipped, as pigtails, patch cables, and installation cables were directly connected.

For the connectivity of its retail stores, the Mall has utilized the Cat. 7 S/FTP cables with Cat. 6A outlets, while the CCTV connectivity is built on high-grade Cat. 6 cabling. This copper cabling network connects to a high-speed FO backbone that utilizes OM3 fibre cabling.

"R&M's strengths in copper and fibre presented ABC Verdun with the opportunity to fulfil all its cabling requirements - thus simplifying the implementation. Parts of the network is built on R&M's cabling systems, providing a 25-year system warranty which safeguards the Group's investment and ensures its successful operation for years to come," said Mohammad Sweidan, regional sales director, Levant, Kuwait & North Africa at R&M.

Antoine Abi Nassif, general manager of Qbrands, R&M's implementation partner in Lebanon said: "After several years of hard work, we have achieved great success with R&M in Lebanon. It was crucial for us to win this project as ABC Verdun which is one of the most important projects executed in Lebanon in recent years. R&M has provided us with its full support in order to fulfil the requirements of the client and the consultant, Khatib & Alami. R&M's products definitely meet the expectations of our client and live up to the well-known Swiss quality."
