Hospitality Wireless Special

From what we hear from our Hospitality clients guest occupancy has been down during the winter. Business is starting to pick up a bit this spring and with summer approaching it is a good time to look at amenities and upgrade long overdue services.

Hotel guests are now pounding the hotel wireless networks with their iPhones, Netbooks, laptops and connecting to traffic intense sites like Pandora, YouTube, Hulu and maybe connecting back to their office for email and work. Nowadays almost no vacation lacks a few business emails.

A wireless network with spotty coverage, poor design, downtime, lack of features will drive guests away.

I have been told by a few clients that guests will not even check in if there isn’t sufficient wireless at the hotel.

SF WiFi resolves wireless network issues. Our Hotel General Managers are happy and the guests don’t complain to the front desk!! Well maybe guests still complain about the continental breakfast – but we can’t support that.

SF WiFi offers s FREE site survey to gather the necessary information for a proper wireless design.

Solar Powered Bus Shelter Unveiled in San Francisco – With WiFi !!

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom recently unveiled the first of 1,100 solar powered bus shelters that will be installed throughout the city between now and 2013. Crowned with a rolling red crest of photovoltaic panels, the shelters will use the sun’s rays to power their intercom, LED lighting, and even wireless routers that will help blanket the city with WiFi goodness. Designed by Lundberg Design and contracted through Clear Channel, the new shelters signal a bright future for solar technology in the Bay Area.

The roof is constructed from an innovative 40% post-industrial recycled polycarbonate material embedded with thin-film photovoltaic cells. The panel powers the NextMuni display that tells people when their bus is coming, a Push-To-Talk system so blind people can hear the NextMuni information, environmentally friendly light bulbs, and free Wi-Fi. The old florescent lights in the current shelters use 336 watts; the new LED panels use only 74 watts.

“Transit shelters that use photovoltaics, LEDS, and WiFi are going to be standard in the future and Im proud that San Francisco is once again acting like the pace car for other cities by trying and implementing these technologies”, said the mayor last week.   Wireless will roll out in another phase.
