Reichle & De-Massari, the Swiss structured cabling specialist, have announced the introduction of its latest high performance cabling range for the oil and gas sector.
R&M’s modular product solutions for the sector incorporates forward looking design and maximizes return on investment of a key part of network infrastructure.
The large scale nature of oil and gas operations typically requires significant investment and set up times. Both office and platform operations are usually geographically diffused yet need to have linked communications. R&M advises oil and gas companies that the installation of high quality cabling maximizes both performance and investment for the network infrastructure.
Jean Pierre Labry, Managing Director of R&M Middle East and Africa, explains “We advise oil and gas companies not to compromise on its network infrastructure and install a future proof network of the highest cabling specifications. The deployment of modular cabling is the foundation of a network scalable to effectively handle future network demands. By installing modular cabling, future applications can be adopted with minimal investment as well as allowing for faster broadband transmission speeds.”
The Swiss cabling specialist also notes that when environmental conditions are also at times extreme, this requires durable and reliable communications components.
“Oil and gas operations are characterized by harsh or changing environmental conditions due to their remote locations. As a result they require easy to install, zero defect components from their passive and active network components. This is imperative to assure faultless performance in remote locations with limited technical support and safeguard against connection failures,” concluded Labry.
