Voice over IP installed using hospital LAN connections on all campuses to allow clear voice communication between the control rooms and all parking equipment.

Mifare Smartcard integration

An important requirement within the original tender was for staff to be able to utilise the existing Mifare smart cards that they were using for a cashless vending application throughout the staff car parks.
