recently announced the publication of a new white paper discussing its unique “On-Premise Ethernet over Coax” technology solution for enabling robust high-speed internet access (HSIA) in hotels.
Broadband access is rapidly evolving from an amenity to a fundamental requirement for the business traveler, and coaXmedia is at the forefront of the efforts to enable ubiquitous availability of high-speed Internet access in the hospitality segment. Hotel owners and franchisees no longer need to sift through a complex array of technology solutions.
The coaXmedia Series 6100 Broadband Gateway, SandDollar access appliance and Wireless Access Point combine to provide a complete HSIA access package. The solution enables the hotelier to provide a guest with broadband access, anywhere in a hotel, in a way that is economically viable for the hotel, the Internet service provider and the guest.

-Concludes with a discussion of system implementations and a brief introduction to the coaXmedia network management system.
“The deployment of broadband data service requires an adequate infrastructure from the head end, central office, ISP, etc. all the way to the subscriber’s PC. From the side of the building, the ‘last yard’ delivery technologies include wireless, CAT5, other twisted pair solutions, and the like. Coaxial cable is available in nearly every hotel room,” said Don Davis, vice president of engineering and technical support. “The prevalence coax cable along with its superior intrinsic bandwidth makes it an ideal candidate for delivering high-speed data to the client PC without the cost of rewiring.”
