R&M Provides 5-Star Cabling Infrastructure to Millennium Hotel Amman in Jordan
First R&M CAT6A UTP ISO end-to-end solution in the MEA region implemented in luxury hotel
Millennium Hotel Amman is the newest luxury 5-star business lifestyle hotel in the Jordanian capital. The modern and striking hotel located in the business and commercial district of Shmeisani is within easy walking distance of Amman's shopping centers, banks, high-end restaurants and entertainment facilities. The hotel has 178 rooms in the 20-floor property that offers breathtaking views over the city with ultra-modern facilities.
The R&M project commenced when the IT consultant for the project Eng. Munir AbuZeid, Executive Director of Meda Consulting Engineers in Amman designed a comprehensive IT infrastructure solution specifying products with the highest quality and performance standards to match the hotel’s contemporary design. R&M’s CAT6A UTP ISO was chosen as it fulfilled all these requirements.
Mr. AbuZeid says “Based on my long experience in the industry working with various cabling solutions, I found that the performance of the R&M CAT6A UTP (10G) with 650MHz cabling infrastructure solution was excellent with high bandwidth and capacity capabilities. We fully trust that the installed R&M products will not only meet, but also exceed the expectations of Millennium Hotel.”
Installation services are another key factor for the success of any cabling project implementation. The installation was carried out by R&M’s partner in Jordan, Applied Technical Systems (ATS) with direct involvement and supervision by the R&M Levant office in Amman. The project took two months to be completed by eight R&M certified installers from ATS. Since this was the first R&M CAT6A ISO project in the region, certified QPP training courses were conducted on-site by the R&M Levant technical team to ensure that the installers from ATS had all the necessary technical skills required to complete the installation successfully.
Mr. Ibrahim Zananiri, IT Manager at Millennium Hotel Amman says, “A world-class hotel like Millennium Hotel Amman which targets the most elite customers in the region required a 5-star cabling infrastructure solution that facilitates intelligence services for all customer facilities and ensured the highest level of network stability and availability. At the same time, it had to have a contemporary design that matched the modern design of the hotel. The R&M solution ticked all the boxes and with local representation and support from its technically proficient partner ATS, the company was able to not only meet, but also exceed our expectations.”
Flexibility of R&M products could easily meet the Italian standard faceplates that were designed by the hotel designer. R&M’s global rack with 144 FO ports in 3U saved a lot of space, time and money with integration of the Fiber module of R&M cassette which could be installed easily in the floor panel and in the main global patch panel as well.
The R&M solution was tested through Fluke DTX-1800 and obtained an excellent performance of 650MHz (on Fluke test) for the complete channel and for all installed points.
“We are proud to have been able to achieve success on this landmark project thanks to the quality, speed, flexibility and reliability of R&M solutions. The team spirit and close collaboration with our partner ATS was instrumental in delivery of the project to the satisfaction of the customer. We look forward to many such successful projects in the region in the future,” concluded Mr. Mohammad Sweidan, Area Manager, Levant Area & Kuwait at R&M.
