ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Wayport CyberCenters are showcased in prominent areas of hotels and feature all the accessibility options demanded by meeting attendees, including a kiosk equipped with notebook computers featuring Intel Centrino? mobile technology for walk-up access, cubicles with high-speed Internet connections for guests using their own notebook computers, printing capabilities and an on-site Wayport data support specialist, all in an area that is visible and convenient for meeting attendees. The CyberCenter is open Monday-Friday, and the services are free to all meeting attendees.

“The ability to remain productive and in-touch with the office is an invaluable and attractive quality to busy guests,” said Tom Corcoran, CEO of Felcor. “Wayport’s CyberCenter with its cutting-edge technology and on-site technical expertise is unlike any other product currently offered in the industry. It creates a ‘win-win’ situation for everyone and has already helped our hotel attract more meeting business and revenue.”

CyberCenters offer added conveniences and a competitive advantage for hotels.

Corporate meeting planners also have the option of reserving a private Dedicated CyberCenter - a separate meeting room offering all of the amenities of the public CyberCenter, with additional options such as desktop computers, static IP(s) for additional security, Wi-Fi wireless Internet access, and dedicated bandwidth.

“Wayport’s CyberCenter is unlike any other product currently available for the business traveler,” said Rex Spencer, Customer Service Manager - US Army Programs of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. “Our group booked our hotel accommodations based on the past professionalism and accommodations.
