    Riviera Maritime Media

    Established in 2001, Riviera Maritime Media (RMM) grew from an initial partnership formed in 1997 to buy and publish the “Speed at Sea” journal.

Having found suitable office space, the managing director of RMM, Steve Labdon, knew he wanted to have an access control system fitted as part of the refurbishment. Steve says: “Security was our biggest issue. We have a floor in a multi-tenanted building and needed to ensure only our staff had free access to our offices. We have several different companies under the same roof, and a considerable amount of expensive equipment to protect."

    Tsukuba University

    Well known in Japan as the first open campus, the Medical School Group at Tsukuba University has faced problems with theft and needed to keep records of who was entering buildings and when.

    As a solution, they chose to install Paxton Access’ Net2 and add to the installation every year. We asked Prof. Naoto Terui, the person in charge of installations at the school, and Ms. Adachi, who manages the use of the system, to tell us about their experience with Net2.

    The Tsukuba University Medical School Group is located on one corner of the Tsukuba campus, in the center of the 2,700 hectare Tsukuba City Research Park. The Medical School Group is composed of three separate fields: Medicine, Nursing and Pharmaceuticals. About 1,900 people (including the students, doctors and other staff,) are using the eight buildings belonging to the Medical School Group. At the open campus, there are no walls or gates. Beyond that, buildings were always being added that had no real plans for an overall security system. Anybody could come into the campus at any time. From a security perspective, there were a lot of things that were being over-looked.

    Conquest Hosipital

    Conquest Hospital is a modern District General Hospital. Built over four levels, the hospital opened 16 years ago and in 2002 merged with Eastbourne Hospital to form East Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust serving the population of East Sussex. The Trust employs over 5000 staff and The Conquest is an extremely busy hospital. In the last year the maternity teams delivered 3835 babies; 95,393 people were treated as inpatients and day cases and a total of 115,147 patients were treated in their two emergency departments. They also carried out nearly five million pathology tests.

    In 2007, the access control system at the Conquest Hospital failed and could not be recovered. Installation of a new system by the current provider was not a realistic option because of the cost that had been quoted to them.

    John Kirk the Security Manager for both The Conquest and the DGH in Eastbourne explains: “Security is very important in this sort of environment. Hundreds of people come through the hospital every day.”

    John decided to investigate installing a Net2 networked access control system from Paxton Access.
