Today’s guest expects to be able to get online, quickly, easily and reliably. Studies show that more than 70% of guests ask about the ability of the hotel to deliver online access and will choose not to stay at a hotel unable to provide it.

But for those that do, complaints about Internet connectivity are now at the very top of the list of issues raised by guests. In fact recent studies clearly suggest that nearly 80% of guests feel that providing the most up-to-date HSIA is an absolutely vital component of the guest offering.

Individual guests are increasingly using laptops, tablets and mobiles at the same time and this device proliferation increases loading on existing, often outdated networks, presenting significant problems for the hotelier.

This being the case, the necessity for the hotelier to have a robust network is now more critical than ever.

  • The exponential surge in the number of mobile devices connected to WiFi networks and
  • the insatiable hunger of users for more data.

Two trends are happening right now:

It was observed that the data usage patterns of these smart device users vary from notebook users. Mobile video traffic alone exceeded 50 percent of data traffic for the first time in 20111. In the US, the average Smartphone traffic reaches more than 500MB a month for Apple and Android devices and the average tablet customer is expected to consume four times more. It has inevitably become quite a challenge for IT administrators to extend network hospitality.

The need to stay connected has fuelled the demand for quality broadband access anytime and everywhere, especially in the hospitality industry. Hoteliers do their best to keep their guests satisfied, however, hotel guests these days will not settle for slow or barely satisfactory Internet connection. Hotel guests expect fast and secure2Internet access--and it has to be free3 Regardless of the number of devices he or she brings into the network.

Today, the average user may carry (at one time) many devices: laptop, notebook, netbook, tablet, Smartphones, gaming devices and others. If the average hotel guest carries three Wi-Fi enabled devices (e.g.Smartphone, laptop and a tablet), the number of devices connected simultaneously with a full 800-room hotel could easily reach 2000 or more. The days of 1:1 ratio of people and wireless connections are over. With HSIA Gateway high concurrent device capacity features, hoteliers and service providers can easily manage their networks. As of June 2012, it can support up to 4,0004 concurrent devices.

While most hoteliers provide complimentary Internet access, they also need to make sure that everyone gets a fair share of the bandwidth. Some hoteliers address this by offering Internet access on premium and guaranteed bandwidth tiers at a reasonable price. How can hoteliers ensure that their VIPs and premium-paying customers get what they pay for? HSIA Gateway Multi-tier QoS add-on module lets the hoteliers do this easily. The HSIA Gateway can also manage P2P traffic, which is usually the reason why networks bog down, and do application-based traffic shaping. Another essential thing to note is that the HSIA Gateway provides seamless MAC-based re-login for smart devices. This is an important mobile device support that only the HSIA Gateway can provide. With this built-in HSIA Gateway feature, the network remembers mobile devices so that when you are in the network, you are automatically and safely reconnected without the hassle of logging in again and again.
