North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT) identified the need for new access control, intruder and fire protection systems that could both replace life-expired equipment at Southmead Hospital and be suitable for a new £430 million ‘super hospital’ to be built on the same site.
The project met a number of key criteria outlined by the trust, principally meeting their requrements for a flexible, future proof solution. The system is completed by MIFARE® readers and cards, giving the hospital site true, contactless, smart card technology. Now serving approximately 8,000 card holders, the readers provide an extremely cost effective, highly reliable solution that also allows for straightforward expansion in the future if required (the same MIFARE® card can be used for other site services such as cashless vending for example).
