Perfect Flexibility with the all-new Mixed Media Patch Panel Netscale 48

R&M is extending its Netscale family for Data Centers with a combined solution. The forty-eight port panel for copper and fiber optic cabling for Data Centers and office cabling on a single height unit.

The new Netscale 48 patch panel has, as its name suggests, 48 ports. It is the height of one unit in a 19” rack. The main new feature is the dual function. Along with fiber optic cabling, the panel accepts copper cabling. Until now, two height units were required in Data Centers to bring the two transmission media together in one rack. With Netscale 48, FO and copper cabling can be combined on one height unit in the most confined of spaces in Data Centers and in the LAN environment. This compact mixed-media solution helps free up valuable space for more cabling, switches and servers. 


The mixed media platform Netscale 48 can be equipped with all types of adapter available on the market today. These include the FO connectors LC, SC, MPO, E-2000™ and even the latest types CS, SN, MDC of the «Very Small Form Factor» (VSFF) class. The R&M products Cat. 6A ISO, Cat 6A EL and Cat. 8 can be used for copper connectivity. 

R&M supplies pre-terminated cabling systems which technicians will find easy both to install and remove. Optical fibers are spliced directly on the platform. Netscale 48 was designed in such a way that changes can be made without disrupting the network. A further new feature is the integrated patch cord manager. It saves space-consuming additional height units with cable guides on the front. 

Netscale 48 supports Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM). The sensor strips of the AIM system R&MinteliPhy can be plugged in or replaced during operation (hot-pluggable).
