Want to learn the current ways in which you can delight your customers? We’ve commissioned industry research to explore the hotel Wi-Fi pain-points experienced by UK hoteliers and their guests. And as part of this, we’ve identified the opportunities for you to make things better. To see the surprising results, take a look at our report.

Wi-Fi Demystified

Nope. Most people don’t realise that other electronic devices such as microwaves, cordless phones and baby monitors can all cause disruption too. So can mirrors and windows, by reflecting signal back. When this happens, your hotel wireless devices’ transmission can be lost.
How often have you been frustrated that you can’t connect to the internet, and vented all your frustration at the Wi-Fi itself? Poor old Wi-Fi. While the first response is usually to buy more bandwidth, this isn’t the answer: it’s all about ensuring that traffic is evenly distributed. Because hotel Wi-Fi is only as good as the infrastructure behind it.
Wrong again. Power management of APs is key to a successful wireless deployment – it’s not just a case of ramping up power to 100% or leaving power settings on default. Tweaking the power can make or break hotel Wi-Fi network performance.
Would you join a motorway with 3 lanes of heavy congestion, or a motorway with 19 lanes of less traffic? A client device will commonly select 2.4GHz (3 lanes) over 5GHz (19 lanes) merely because it appears to have a stronger signal. It’s a common perception that the AP or the router does this, but actually the client’s device makes the assumptions.
Certainly not. Installing 802.11ac means upgrading to faster speeds and less frequency interference. But it doesn't also mean you must ‘rip and replace’ your existing network. Many vendors provide backward compatibility to previous generation equipment, so you can take a mix-and-match approach to deploying newer Wi-Fi solutions for hotels.
