3 High-class networks Communications networks have brought about permanent changes to our world. The thing that remains constant, though, is our desire for the best, most reliable way to exchange information with each other. This is an area where R&M is making a key contribution. We have set as our goal the development of the most advanced cabling technology for public and private networks. As an independent Swiss family-owned company, we stand by our roots. These are: quality and precision, efficiency and reliability, innovation and sustainability, and long-term collaborations in close partnerships. Everything began with the invention of the easy-to-install telephone outlet. With this, Hans Reichle and Renato De-Massari in 1964 laid the cornerstone for their company Reichle & De-Massari AG (R&M). Today R&M is an internationally recognized total supplier of passive distribution and connection technology for all levels of cable, telecom, broadband and data networks. Our Swiss mindset of always providing top quality has a number of implications for your infrastructure: 100% long-term operational reliability, the lowest latency and zero loss of data, simple installation and fast maintenance, plus economic systems that hold their value year after year. R&M supports network operators with systems that stand out due to their consistent modular design, cost-effective fast installation technology, extensive functionality and their high level of adaptability.
