iBAHN partners with new JW Marriott Hotel

iBAHN, the worldwide leader in digital entertainment and Internet solutions for the hospitality and meeting industries, today announces that it is to complete a full digital entertainment and High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) installation at the new JW Marriott Hotel Tripoli in Libya.

The hotel will be equipped with a state-of-the-art IPTV solution and HSIA over fibre-optic networks offering guests the ability to confidently access the internet, with a high quality of service and 24/7 technical support in local languages. iBAHN’s ETVi delivers digital services that combine digital TV entertainment with superb HD picture quality, which is vastly superior to analogue systems, and secure high-speed internet services.

Using ETVi, the JW Marriott Hotel Tripoli will be able to totally integrate guest services with entertainment packages, offering multiple revenue streams and improved guest satisfaction from the ease of use of the system and greater choice of high quality entertainment.

iBAHN will work closely with Symon Dacon on digital signage as part of the installation. Symon Dacon is a provider of intelligent visual communications solutions for the hotel industry including digital signage, door displays, wayfinders and interactive kiosks.

When it opens, in early 2011, the JW Marriott Hotel Tripoli will be Marriott International’s first hotel in Libya and features 370-rooms over the 36-storey property including an 80-room executive level and lounge, all located in Tripoli’s new central business district a in the northern section of the city, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.


Graeme Powell, Managing Director EMEA, iBAHN, comments: “Partnering on JW Marriott’s first property in Libya is an important step for our Middle East Africa team. We’ve worked hard to establish iBAHN’s presence in the region and the raft of recent iBAHN announcements in the territory is a reflection of our unrivalled on-the-ground service and support operations throughout EMEA.”
