Security for QCOM 3 LAN

QCOM 3 local area network (LAN) infrastructure is not regulated gaming equipment, but the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) may declare specific QCOM LAN equipment as regulated gaming equipment if we view the equipment as being significant to the security, integrity or availability of gaming.

The physical QCOM 3 LAN mustn't be easily accessible by the general public (i.e. a member of the public would have to enter an area that they are not permitted into in order to gain access to any physical part of a QCOM LAN).

Once the LAN is connected to gaming machines, then accessing the LAN in a criminal or malicious way, or with intent to, could be seen as unlawful interference with gaming equipment under section 291 of the Gaming Machine Act 1991.

Value-added services

Queensland licensed monitoring operators may offer value-added services, such as QCOM 3 LAN quality of service and intrusion monitoring. However, these services must not restrict OLGR's or the licensed gaming venue's access to the LAN in any way.
