Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) has deployed its latest structured cabling solutions at Kempinski, Al Mouj Muscat, a five-star property in the Al Mouj Muscat waterfront development. The hotel will be able to leverage this network infrastructure for all its IT functions including high-speed data and voice connectivity for guests, IPTV, as well as video surveillance and security access systems.
R&M’s proprietary Cat.6 UTP connectivity technology was used, enabling up to 1Gbe connectivity for up to 100 meters along with 10GbE connectivity for up to 50 meters. These cables were terminated by R&M’s RJ45 connectors as the reliability and security of these components make them well suited to the demands of higher bandwidths and transmitting larger amounts of time-sensitive data. “A significant part of network failures is caused by bad cabling and each failure entails enormous downtime costs. Reliability and security of components should never be neglected which is why R&M continues to innovate and improve its solutions,” said Samuel Godfrey, Sales Manager, Oman at R&M Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
R&M also offered Kempinski the benefits of Power over Ethernet (PoE).To maintain consistency in aesthetics, customization of the cabling solution was also a requirement of the hotel. “It was of high importance for the hotel that the various contractors match architect designed faceplates for power, voice, data, security, and TV,” said Prashant Rozario, Business Unit Head - Projects at Mustafa Sultan Telecommunications. R&M was capable of delivering on this requirement as well. The cabling vendor also provided suitable adapters to ensure compatibility.
Commenting on the value that R&M delivered to the project, Prashant Rozario said, “R&M offered our customer a number of very attractive competitive advantages like presence and support of an expertly qualified local team, reputed Swiss quality products, 25-year system warranty, excellent design consultancy and last but not least, highly competitive pricing.”
