A comprehensive security and surveillance solution for the Museum is of course a must, and there are serious considerations to be made with regards to the overall design. ¨Designing the comprehensive security plan for the Museum of Islamic Art involved balancing the need to ensure the security of the artifacts and safety of staff and visitors with the need to make the Museum accessible, welcoming and user friendly, 〃 Explained Brian T. Connor, Head of Security & Safety, Qatar Museums Authority.
The fibre optic products were not only utilized for video and telemetry transmission, but also provided the network for the artwork RFID tagging system using the inbuilt RS232/485 ports. Other applications, such as alarm gathering nodes and Ethernet medium bandwidth connectivity, were also delivered via the fibre optic transmission. ¨The RFID tagging system delivers the signals from pressure pads on the exhibition displays as well as vibration detection and door-to-door magnetic reads. Tests were carried out to confirm compatibility prior to approval being given to the use of the RS ports being utilized for the network infrastructure. This also provided a project cost saving against the use of individual fibre converters and allowed fibre cores to be saved for future project expansion,〃 Gausden further explained.
