APConnections has moved
into the hotel industry in a big way and is being used in prominent hotels
to insure vital communications for their guests.APConnections has announced a major deployment at the Holiday Inn,
Washington-Central/White House in Washington, DC. Visiting dignitaries will
be relying on the NetEqualizer to insure responsive Internet connections.
“We try to stay ahead of the curve here in Washington, DC; our
customers are very tech savvy and require the best service when it comes to
their Internet connectivity. Since installing the NetEqualizer back in
November it has been smooth sailing - no busy hour slowdowns or
complaints,” said Jeff Billings, System Administrator, Holiday Inn Central.
The NetEqualizer is increasingly used in hotels because the guests
demand quality Internet services and the load from many hotel guests can be
daunting to most systems. According to analysts, broadband Internet access
in guest rooms is expected to more than triple between 2004 and 2009 to
nearly 54,000 properties worldwide. Currently, hotels are being judged and
ranked according to their quality of Internet access.
With nearly 1,500 Holiday Inn hotels around the world, Holiday Inn
remains the most popular hotel brand. They offer free high-speed Internet
access at each of their facilities in the U.S. & Canada.
The NetEqualizer is a plug-and-play bandwidth control appliance that is
flexible and scalable. NetEqualizer’s unique technology differs
significantly from other appliances. It uses “behavior shaping” which
dynamically and automatically controls network flow for the best WAN
Optimization. It is built on Linux and works with all operating systems. It
has been on the market in its present form for a year and a half.
