Princess Nora Bint AbdulRahman University in Riyadh Utilizes OT Systems’ Media Converters

14 Apr 2015

Princess Nora Bint AbdulRahman University in Riyadh recently incorporated OT Systems transmission solutions into their surveillance and access control systems across the campus.

The university is the kingdom's flagship project and OT Systems' industrial Ethernet media converter is part of this billion dollar project.

Princess Noura Bint AbdulRahman University is the first women's university in Saudi Arabia as well as the largest women-only university in the world. In the campus area, patrol patterns require more areas to be monitored by CCTV and access control systems when security guards are not present. The system utilizes a number of IP cameras installed along the fence and inside university buildings for perimeter protection and surveillance. Leveraging 986 pairs of OT Systems ET1111 (Industrial grade 10/100Base-TX + 100Base-FX media converter), each converter is dedicated to one IP camera or device. OT Systems guarantees the safety and stability of data transfer throughout the site using the point-to-point media converting solution. Only one camera will be affected if a converter is in trouble. Thanks to its extremely compact size design, the media converter is small enough to fit inside the IP camera housing. Its 24VAC power compatibility also shares a power source with the camera. Designed for outdoor installation, the ET1111 withstands operating temperature from -10? to 60?.

OT Systems’ media converters also provide an excellent transmission solution for the university access control system. It offers the flexibility of connecting the biometric readers at each access control location and the central server with a variety of fiber links (single-mode/ multi-mode, 1/2 core), extending the transmission distance up to 20km.

As security projects continue to increase in scale and complexity, system integrators face the issue of enhancing efficiency over longer distances. OT Systems’ Ethernet media converter plays a key role in promoting a safe learning and working environment for its users.
