Wireless systems company, Ruckus Wireless, has deployed its Smart Wi-Fi network in Alex Perry’s new hotel and apartments in Brisbane. The deal will fit out the hotel and apartments with a wireless telephony system and guest Internet connectivity system.
Delivered along with wireless Internet connectivity, the new wireless enabled telephony system aims to deliver a near zero latency with no drop outs or echoes on the network.
The site was originally set to be equipped by another supplier, but as the opening date drew closer, Ruckus Wireless was employed as the initial planned network was not going to be live in time.
With three months to the opening date, the owners approached Delion, a national company offering wireless solutions to the hotel and hospitality and shopping centre industries.
Sydney reseller, Delion, was asked to provide a solution for wireless connectivity for guests and back-of-house operations and telephony. As the Alex Perry is a 12-floor hotel, Delion had to install more than 140 wireless telephones along with technology that would allow them to be used simultaneously.
To provide the solution required, Delion implemented a dark fibre connection, with burst capabilities of up to 1 gigabyte, connected and managed through the Delion datacentre, and it selected Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi solutions to implement a wireless system.
“As a Ruckus partner, we are very familiar with the capabilities, durability and reliability of the Ruckus product suite. Considering the needs of the customer and in particular the nature of this deployment, we appreciated that no other vendor was likely to deliver the quality levels and feature sets needed," Delion sales and marketing director, Rob Fleischer, said.
"In combination with Delion’s Software Management solution, we were able to deliver a hotel grade system on budget and within the required timelines.”
Ruckus Wireless A/NZ managing director, Pat Devlin, said the project has enabled fast deployment, enabling Alex Perry to open the multi-million dollar project for business quickly.
“Wireless is no longer just another amenity at hotels. It’s become a prerequisite for doing business. We believe Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi delivers reliable Wi-Fi signals, which is why many hotels have upgraded to Ruckus,” he mentioned.
Alex Perry Hotel and Apartments revenue and operations manager, Ruth Carroll, added that the coverage has enabled the business with full coverage for both in-room technologies to service its leisure and corporate customers, as well as support all of the back-of-house necessities.
