Project responsibilities for the University of Pennsylvania Proton Facility is to provide telecommunications cabling systems and associated infrastructure for voice, data, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), Cable Antenna Television (CATV), access control and intercommunications systems. The design for this state of the art radiation treatment facility was implemented in not only the four underground gantry areas which hold the 90 ton machines used to deliver the radiation treatment, but also in the surrounding control rooms and nurse and technician stations. Access control systems were designed such that access was accomplished using a proximity card reader and electrified lock set with authorizations controlled via a central database. Networked surveillance systems were implemented in the entrance of treatment rooms, hallways and common areas which could be monitored from either a central computer room via CCTV or through IP-based access to the Network Video Recorder. Intercommunication systems are designed to allow two-way audio communication from sub-stations located in the gantry areas and technician control rooms, back to a master station located in the main control room. Construction of the Proton Facility has been complete since 2009.
