The largest ski area in Alaska is using Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:MSI) Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) components to implement a cost-effective, reliable high-speed wireless service for guests. The Alyeska Resort responded to customers who complained about Wi-Fi connection and troubleshooting issues. Motorola’s T5 Wi-Fi over VDSL2 system has resulted in 100 percent guest satisfaction with the Wi-Fi service and a dramatic reduction in wireless network management time and cost for hotel staff. The T5 system allowed the Alyeska Resort to easily provide every guest room with high-speed wall-to-wall Wi-Fi coverage, with plenty of bandwidth to ensure superior wireless performance, regardless of how many devices may be in use in a room — or in the hotel. The VDSL2 architecture uses the existing telephone wiring and is compatible with the existing telephony and data network equipment, allowing for an easy and cost-effective deployment. KEY FACTS
- The T5 Wi-Fi over VDSL2 solution was designed specifically to provide high-speed, in-room Wi-Fi service. The flexibility of the technology also allowed for deployment in the first three floors of the hotel, providing high-speed Wi-Fi service to guests and hotel staff in the pool area, spa, restaurant, retail shops and banquet rooms as well as administrative offices.
- Motorola’s rugged AP7161 802.11n outdoor access points were deployed to provide the point-to-point link to the resort maintenance shop and its buildings and grounds department.
- The Alyeska Resort is located 30 miles from Anchorage, Alaska, and is a year-round destination featuring a 304-room hotel.
