  • Overview
    • Dealing With Intensive Data Traffic

      Whether in private companies or universities, medical and scientific users are increasingly among the real ‘power users’ of high speed, high volume data. Whether that’s to support super-computing, complex calculations or transfer of high quality images and video, this is one of the most data-hungry markets of all. Clients in this sector expect consistent high performance and the ability to scale, particularly during peaks in demand.

      As an established supplier to the medical and scientific fields, 3M understands the specific challenges and demands of these sectors. Covering all major copper and fibre standards, 3M is able to deliver a wide range of cabling solutions that provide the high performance, reliability, speed and longevity that medical and scientific customers need.

      3M can work with installers and consultants at every stage, from cable system design through to on-site installation and beyond. UK-held stock means that product is delivered on time, while component design focuses on rapid, easy installation with less room for error. All completed projects that pass required testing are viable for a 25 year warranty, giving everyone involved even more peace of mind.
