Donation to the foundation „Bunter Kreis“


Instead of Christmas presents for our business partners we invested in a donation to a charity foundation this year again. Horst Erhardt, volontary managing director and founding member of the foundation “Bunter Kreis“, received the symbolic donation cheque with the amount of 5.000 €.
The foundation „Bunter Kreis Augsburg“ is an innovative welfare institution at the Childrens‘ Hospital of the Klinikum Augsburg. Since 1992, the foundation takes care of families with chronically-, cancer- or severely-ill children in the region of Bavarian Swabia. Besides the aftercare center in Augsburg there are two local offices in Kempten and Memmingen. 120 employees accompany about 2000 concerned families on their hard and often long way to help them managing their life despite these big burdens. 

Rosenberger OSI already supports the foundation „Bunter Kreis“ since 2001 and donated in total 44.000 € since that.


PerCONNECT - innovative LAN cabling

Keep it simple, but smart: Rosenberger OSI presents a new solution for office and building cabling

Cost-effective, flexible and scalable: PerCONNECT offers planning, installation and innovative products from one single source

Augsburg, 28. September 2017 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative cabling infrastructures based on fiber optics, is now presenting its PerCONNECT solution portfolio for efficient cabling infrastructure management in buildings. With regard to hardware, the Rosenberger OSI solution is based on a one-sided prefabrication of the cables, forward-looking network planning, and rapid on-site installation by experts and qualified partners. “With our innovative LAN portfolio, valuable cost and time savings can be achieved and efficiency is increased significantly. The goal is to also use our high-performance optical fiber and copper-based solutions for end users,” explains Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of Rosenberger OSI.

The increasing importance of bandwidth for today's applications, the expected developments for the upcoming years, and the constant convergence of the various sectors within IT have prompted Rosenberger OSI to start offering its experience as a specialist for data center infrastructure solutions and high-speed applications also to the office and building cabling sector.

Modern system solution for buildings and offices
Under the name of PerCONNECT, Rosenberger OSI offers a complete solution portfolio for effective and modern building cabling: Within the scope of this solution, one-sided prefabricated fiber optic solutions and copper-based cables are offered, although the innovative focus is placed on optical fiber. “The reason is that optical fiber technology has virtually unlimited transmission capacities and is therefore absolutely future-proof. Only the last few meters to the end user are made of copper,” says the managing director. As a result of this, the optical fiber backbone, which only needs to be laid once, can provide the flexible performance needed by the supply infrastructure of a building complex for many years to come.

In line with the slogan “keep it simple, but smart,” Rosenberger OSI’s expert team for building cabling relies on operational flexibility, modularity and, thanks to the one-sided prefabricated products, simple, quick installation, all of which guarantee high performance.

Efficient, cost-effective and future-proof: PerCONNECT from Rosenberger OSI
In operations, the cabling design for a project is defined in advance and on-site by Rosenberger OSI’s in-house specialists or qualified experts, so that time and cost savings can be achieved. Rosenberger OSI relies on one-sided prefabricated products for optical fiber cables, simplifying installation on-site. PerCONNECT’s portfolio is also characterized by diameter-reduced and gel-free cables for fiber optics, which considerably simplifies on-site splicing. The reduction in diameter also leads to a considerable reduction in the fire load (at least 15%), which provides a lot more certainty for the future, as the strain on the cable ducts is reduced and the removal options are significantly improved. Cables are also available in class B2 (CPR) – currently the highest fire protection class. If MTP® connection cables are also used, fitting activities can also be reduced enormously. For floor wiring, Rosenberger OSI uses a copper-based solution, both in the prefabricated version and in the component form.

Comprehensive service throughout the project
In addition to supplying cabling solutions, Rosenberger OSI’s in-house experts or suitably qualified local partners can also look after the planning and installation activities for office and building cabling. “Our service teams also prepare documentation for the transfer and acceptance meetings and support the infrastructure according to maintenance agreements that cover the entire lifetime of the network,” explains Mr. Schmidt. If existing cabling is no longer state-of-the-art, a modernization of the networks can be carried out in the form of a “revitalization” project. “A redesign is not always necessary. In line with our strategy, we often recommend smaller adaptations that are often completely sufficient for the efficient, continued operation of a data infrastructure,” said the Managing Director in closing.


Rosenberger OSI labels cabling products according to fire protection classification

Cabling specialist fulfills labeling obligation in line with the new safety and fire protection standards

Augsburg, June, 21 2017 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative cabling solutions based on fiber optic technology, announces that the company fulfills the new requirements of the European Construction Products Regulation (CPR), taking effect as of July, 1st 2017.

From this date, all products  subject to labeling  including cabling products sold by the meter, but excluding pre-assembled cabling systems,  must be labeled appropriately.  The goal of the new EU CPR labeling initiative is to better protect people in buildings in case of fire and is valid in all member states of the European Union.

CPR requires all cables permanently installed in buildings to have been tested and labeled in respect of their fire behavior characteristics including safety and emissions. Data and communication as well as copper and fiber optic cables are affected by the regulation.

“In anticipation of the new regulation we   have been fulfilling its requirements for many years by harmonizing and completing our cabling products in line with the planned European and international safety, fire protection and health standards”, explains Thomas Schmidt, managing director of Rosenberger OSI.

Until now,  there have been different regulations at European and national level concerning the classification of cables which has resulted in different safety standards.  The new CPR regulation introduces new criteria for the classification as well as common Euro classes that apply to the entire European zone,  enabling a universal system for classification, evaluation and certification to be established.     

Buildings owners and expert planners will be responsible for  deciding  the appropriate CPR class of FO and CU data cables for the relevant installation environment in accordance with  their own risk management. As requirements differ Europe-wide, users will have to fulfill and test in line with specific local regulations.

Thomas Schmidt added: “As a manufacturer, Rosenberger OSI is already using the required and CPR approved cables and is also proving the traceability of the cable charges. In addition, we are not only labeling our products but the CPR class is also specified on every meter of the cable label.”
