R&M is completing its Cat 8.1 program. Cat. 8.1 patch cords round off the cabling range for office cabling and data centres. The company is one of the first manufacturers to be a single source of supply for all modules of a shielded Cat. 8.1 channel.

The independent German testing company GHMT confirmed in June that a Cat. 8.1 cabling system from R&M reliably transfers 25 Gigabit/s over 50 meters. This is the

performance level required for the connection of WiFi 6 antennas in office buildings, for example. GHMT tested on the basis of the standard ISO/IEC DTR 11801-9909. The R&M system fulfilled the corresponding requirements with outstanding transmission quality. This makes it suitable for use in data centres.
