Wireless networks

We all know that there is increasingly a huge demand for connections on the move.   Almost every device has wireless IP connectivity – mobile phones, tablets, cameras and even TVs. We have come to accept it the norm to have wireless connections in the home, for a wide range of devices.  Companies large and small are now beginning to require wireless networks in order for these devices to connect for shared resources, manageability and control.  As a home worker, having wireless network is essential for me. My laptop and IP phone are connected to the internet which means, I can work from anywhere in the home.  For office based staff having a wireless connection means that your staff can use more tools for the work day.  If you have meetings within the office, staff can bring tablets or laptops to any meeting room without the loss of connectivity, it also makes it easier for visitors to present any information with ease.

Case Study

MPR IT were recently contacted by a group of 12 hotels in London, with a 99% occupancy rating resulting in a lot of guests with a high demand for solid and reliable internet connectivity.  The hotels were all suffering from poor deployment, and none had any central management for wireless networks, with no way to track guests or provide hotel services via their free wireless internet.

The issues were clearly laid out to us at the start of the project –  “Make our hotels internet stable, fast, and importantly give our guests easy and reliable access to our wifi and give us back something we can use to gather data on our guests”

Many of the hotels were not on the latest generation of high speed FTTC service and were stuck on the traditional ADSL 2 lines, which had to be improved where possible without the cost of a leased line.

After an initial site visit,  MPR IT developed a package with known hardware that we could roll out to all the hotels, replacing the old unmanaged solutions as we went, and all sites now project a unified brand with a reliable and solid internet services to guests 24/7.  To the sites where internet bandwidth was an issue, multiple lines are load balanced allowing for a much smoother and rich user experience.

The outcome is a much improved service and guest complaints have stopped overnight about the internet and wireless.

The custom capture portal that is presented to guests delivers offers ad incentives when they sign in to the wireless portal, this has increased the direct bookings they are taking, cutting their costs to the booking agencies dramatically.
