Kempinski’s iconic Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi is blazing a trail in advanced hotel information technology systems by launching a fully integrated internet access bandwidth, upgraded from single 8MB to dual 10MB load balanced links, with optimum bandwidth speed.Hans Olbertz, General Manager of Emirates Palace, said: “At Emirates Palace we endeavour to provide the best services and facilities in every facet of operations and this substantial technological development is one more way in which we are following through on this commitment.”

For business and leisure travellers alike, the significantly faster access speed will streamline internet usage and file transfers, as well as allowing more efficient contact with friends, family and colleagues, leaving more time to relax and enjoy the resort’s premium facilities.
