Stage West Hotels and Can-Link utilize WiFi-Plus obstruction penetrating (MP) antennas to cover entire 256 rooms and conference center with minimal intrusion. Reduces access points from 27 to 3.

As a leading innovator in providing entertainment and high value services to it’s guests, Stage West -(all suites hotel), is the first hotel in Canada to install antennas outside of the facility to provide wireless internet to their guests no matter where they roam. New, patented antennas from WiFi-Plus, Inc. which have remarkable tree and obstruction penetrating qualities were used on the outside of the building, to make wireless internet available to hotel guests and visitors throughout the facility.

“I was impressed with Wifi-Plus antennas on other projects we had done, On this project I used a single radio and antenna and pointed at the one side of the hotel and achieved full coverage in 128 rooms, said Hakeem Etwroo, President and Chief Wireless Design Engineer for Canlink Wireless. (The project spokesman).

Mr. Etwroo added, “As a winner of the 2002 Greater Toronto Hotel Association Hotel of the Year Award, Stage West is committed to excellence, providing many services and entertainment choices for its guests. The wireless system had to meet this standard and provide great coverage, installation could not disrupt the guests and it had to be affordable. Other bids on the project ranged from $40,000 to $50,000 dollars to provide the full coverage needed and would have taken weeks to install, we did it for $5,000 with minimal effort.”

This wireless design innovation will allow options and coverage’s that were not possible with other technologies. Allowing rapid installation with out disruption to guests is a key benefit to the hotel and restaurant community. Real world installations do not allow for Line of sight. The wireless world is full of obstruction that has hindered the adoption of wireless services.
