Hanson Enterprises has selected Xirrus Wi-Fi to provide guest connectivity in its facilities. By deploying a Xirrus cloud-based Wi-Fi network, Hanson is now delivering fast connectivity to hotel guests within its lobbies, restaurants, outdoor facilities and almost 200 guest rooms throughout its property.
“In the past, if a guest commented about the Wi-Fi, it was usually to complain about it,” said David Hanson, a partner in Hanson Enterprises. “Since installing Xirrus, we haven’t had any complaints from guests about the quality of the Wi-Fi, because the Wi-Fi really just works. That’s exactly what we wanted and exactly what we achieved.”
Today, a single hotel room can have five to six mobile devices or more connecting to the Wi-Fi network. During peak seasons, thousands of connections occur simultaneously. Xirrus Wi-Fi easily scales to support usage peaks, while providing insight into those usage patterns.
The Xirrus Wi-Fi network provides enhanced visibility into ongoing network traffic and bandwidth-hungry applications providing administrators the information needed to optimise the network and allocate bandwidth as necessary to ensure the best guest experience.
Xirrus said its access points are the only APs in the world that can be programmed to simultaneously operate in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands or operate in only one dependent upon changing needs.
Compared with the fixed 2.4GHz + 5GHz configuration of competitive APs, the software programmable Xirrus solution delivers flexibility and ensures a long life-span for the Hanson Wi-Fi network as clients continue to migrate to 5GHz over time.
“By choosing a Xirrus solution, Hanson Hotels not only provide a top-quality Wi-Fi experience for their guests, they also add a future-proof network that will adapt and keep pace with their needs for years to come.” said Jillian Mansolf, chief marketing officer, Xirrus.
"Xirrus is the only Wi-Fi vendor on the market that not only delivers flexible and reliable Wi-Fi solutions that address the requirements of businesses today, but also keeps up with demands as requirements change over time.
Bruce Miller, vice president of product marketing at Xirrus, added: “Xirrus is the only Wi-Fi vendor on the market that delivers robust and reliable Wi-Fi performance that gives our customers the unique advantage to address ever changing Wi-Fi demands. A Xirrus Wi-Fi network easily adapts to the fluctuating amount of device connections and varied applications that all businesses experience today, including the hospitality industry.
“By choosing a Xirrus solution, Hanson Enterprises not only provides a top-quality Wi-Fi network for their guests, they also achieve a future-proof network that will adapt and keep pace with their needs for years to come,” said Miller.
