R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, conferred a technical seminar on ‘4PPoE Standard & Digital Lighting’ at BICSI India District Technology Seminar held recently in Kochi. The theme of BICSI revolved around the “Evolution of ICT Infrastructure in loT and Co-Working” where key topics of cabling infrastructure management, smart building technology, next-generation data center solutions and futuristic smart connectivity solutions were discussed at length.

Mr. Shajan George, Technical Director at R&M India, conducted a detailed session on the importance and benefits of using 4PPoE standard products for LAN cabling’ with added emphasis on prioritizing high power delivery and bandwidth requirements. R&M is convinced that PoE is an essential basis for the Internet of Things and smart building technology. Supplying power to end devices over data cables is paving the way to more intelligent buildings and to the Internet of Things. Powering the end devices via the LAN is also reducing the effort involved in installation and completely facilitates new kinds of applications. R&M is supporting the combination of the data connection and power supply for intelligent LED lighting through a new generation of sturdy, versatile connection boxes.

Interacting with the crowd at the seminar, Shajan George, Technical Director at R&M India said, “The need for high power delivery and bandwidth has instigated us in developing 4PPoE standard products and solutions that can meet new requirements of LAN cabling. With the changing customer demands, we try to leverage platforms such as BICSI to tap into the vast knowledge base of the ICT community, creating awareness on the proper planning, installation and product selection to support high-quality cabling solutions for smart buildings.

Customers are increasingly looking for smart solutions when it comes to connectors, cables, and network distributors. POE targets to create superior user experiences in smart buildings like powering Digital signage and virtual reality screens including smart lighting. Solutions from R&M make it possible to digitally acquire, visualize and manage data networks and even monitor them from a distance.

R&M is considered as the first choice for network cabling solutions and was the gold sponsor for all BICSI events this year. They have been successful in leveraging the BICSI platform to learn and share insights with Information & Communications Technology (ICT) community experts, industry leaders and exhibitors. BICSI is the perfect platform to learn about market trends and demands and provides R&M with an opportunity for continual improvement and for creating a durable basis for future-proof digitalized building automation.
