R&M says IT trends trigger cabling demand growth



Swiss network cabling systems provider R&M said it expects double-figure growth to continue in 2016 financial year in some market segments.

The company said data Center operators in particular are expected to show increasing demand for fiber optic cabling system solutions.  R&M anticipates growth of around 20 percent per year in this segment.

“The increase in data traffic means that Data Centers have to invest in higher performance network architectures and in the consolidation of their infrastructures. Over the next three years, these trends are set to influence the industrial sector to an extent never before seen by the market,” said R&M CMO Andreas Rüsseler.

A study conducted by R&M found that cloud applications are among the driving forces for this higher demand together with video and Internet of Things.

According to R&M, consolidation, automation, and increases in efficiency are today some of the most important challenges relating to the operation of Data Centers.

“We recognized these needs and adapted our product development accordingly,” Andreas Rüsseler said.
