The devices installed in the Museum of Ethnography and the House of Hungarian Music are safe, indispensable for cost-effective operation, while being also extremely reliable.

While efficient operability, minimization of the ecological footprint and preservation of the traditional values of the City Park received special attention during the Liget Budapest Project, there was openness to innovations. The future-proof solutions of T-Systems Hungary are not only indispensable for safe and cost-effective operation, but also take some of the burden off the shoulders of the operators.

Museum of Ethnography

Perhaps the most important cornerstone of modern building management is information and the data that build it up. For the stable operation of a larger property, it is essential that all data are available on one interface, immediately and 24/7, so that the possibility of intervention exists at any moment, and that you can intervene immediately if it becomes necessary.

For this, the entire system must be transparent, flexible and extremely reliable. It is useful if there is interoperability between the components that make up the system, and if they can be expanded and operated flexibly in accordance with user needs. And even more importantly, end-to-end security has a truly essential role, so that only people with the appropriate authorization can access the information.

⁣T-Systems had to meet this complex system of expectations in the case of Liget Budapest's outstanding and most complex building, the Museum of Ethnography, which also features state-of-the-art solutions from an operator's point of view. In addition to a sophisticated energy and resource saving approach, digital innovations make the operator's work easier and serve the comfort of visitors.

The backbone of the Museum of Ethnography is formed by two physically separated network segments. One is the integrated monitoring system, which required 86 km of copper and optical fiber cabling to connect its more than 1,000 low-current IFR endpoints. The other is the traditional IT network, for which T-Systems has installed more than 100 Wi-Fi access points. These ensure the full coverage of the nearly 7,000 square meter exhibition space, as well as the roof level green area of a similar size, which can be accessed freely, for which Magyar Telekom provides the internet connection.

Following the requirements of the BREEAM (Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method) international building sustainability rating system, the entrance points of the building, the security of the exhibitions, the internal service rooms, and the protection of the zones within the building are ensured, among others, by 280 IP cameras, and the fire alarm network consists of 160 smoke detectors. The entire system is controlled by a software monitoring module: it is responsible for the coordinated operation of the entire system. The building's network is connected to the central infrastructure of Városliget Zrt. via optical cable.

While efficient operation, minimization of the ecological footprint and preservation of the traditional values of the City Park received special attention during the Liget Budapest Project, there was an openness to innovations: T-Systems Hungary was involved in the implementation of the future-proof solutions. All of these are essential not only for safe and cost-effective operation, but also take some of the burden off the shoulders of the operators.
