By pairing the ElevenOS platform with our best-in-class fibre-optic network, we’re helping our hospitality customers transform guest Internet access from a basic amenity into a powerful competitive differentiator.

Eleven, the leading provider of cloud-based guest Internet management software, officially unveiled their integration with Cisco Meraki cloud networking today.

The joint Eleven-Meraki solution democratizes network functionality that used to be accessible only by enterprise-level infrastructure with complex architectures. ElevenOS complements the Meraki cloud networking feature set with value-added services that engage guests and deliver a consistently high-performance Internet experience. Eleven’s enhanced portal can be customized to ensure brand consistency and engage guests by promoting onsite or local services to drive incremental revenue and future bookings.

Central authentication gives businesses the ability to identify people and allow them onto their network via a remote captive portal and a central user database. Once connected, the Eleven platform facilitates creating tiered Internet packages, multiple billing options, personalized services, and more. The Meraki integration opens up the power of the ElevenOS platform to more businesses looking for ways to manage and monetize the guest Internet experience.

Tiered Internet service plans can be created via ElevenOS to support specific guest needs, from web and email browsing to streaming movies and videoconferencing. Since Meraki does not require costly gateway or controller hardware on-site, the integrated solution is more streamlined, making it simpler for service provider partners to deliver this sophisticated platform to hospitality and other verticals.

Committed to building a truly open platform, ElevenOS is both hardware agnostic and service provider neutral to work with solutions businesses are already using. With its flexible architecture, hotel network integrations and partnerships with leading certified network service providers, the ElevenOS platform enables businesses of all shapes and sizes to easily manage and optimize the guest Internet experience.

Canada’s fastest-growing telecommunications provider, TELUS, recently chose the ElevenOS plug-and-play integration with Cisco Meraki networks to deliver centralized guest authentication and Wi-Fi management via the cloud to expand its offering to hospitality-industry customers.

"Hotel guests are viewing fast and reliable Wi-Fi as one of the most important hotel amenities and leading hoteliers are aiming to deliver the optimal guest experience through the consistent delivery of this capability," said David Kozicz, VP Product Development & Product Marketing, TELUS. “By pairing the ElevenOS platform with our best-in-class fibre-optic network, we’re helping our hospitality customers transform guest Internet access from a basic amenity into a powerful competitive differentiator.”

Eleven is the foundation of the high-performance Internet experience demanded by today’s connected guest generation. Whether they are checking email on their phone from the lobby, finishing a presentation in the business center, or streaming a movie in their room after a long day – Eleven helps hotels keep guests seamlessly connected with core features like authentication, bandwidth optimization, and portal management. Flexible architecture and open APIs allow the ElevenOS platform to plug into existing infrastructure and allow for endless possibilities to drive guest engagement and revenue. Founded in 2001, Eleven has grown into a powerful cloud-based guest Internet management platform, helping millions of guests stay connected each month at thousands of hotels, cruise ships and other guest-service venues.
