Kanata, Ontario (Vocus) March 1, 2008
Hospitality organizations worldwide are realizing the strategic advantage delivered by wireless networks at their properties.
In the October 2007 Deloitte & Touche USA LLP Online Travel Survey, nearly a third of respondents said that "wireless Internet access is likely to influence them in choosing one lodging facility over another."
As guests and visitors increasingly demand fast and reliable wireless Internet access, hospitality operators are turning to BelAir Networks to increase guest satisfaction with seamless wireless coverage in guest rooms and throughout hospitality properties and venues. BelAir Networks "outside-in" network design delivers extensive indoor and outdoor broadband coverage from high-performance wireless mesh nodes strategically deployed outdoors. This unique approach uses less equipment and wiring than traditional Wi-Fi access points, reducing the cost, time, labor and maintenance associated with the network deployment and its ongoing operation.
Recent announcements and headlines underscore BelAir Networks growing momentum with hotels, resorts and entertainment venues:
