Marriott Chooses HP for In-room Technology

November 29, 2010 by | Comments

HP today announced that Marriott International in Australia has selected
HP Networking high-performance
infrastructure to deliver advanced in-room technology services to hotel
guests.

As part of its “Spirit to Serve” philosophy, Marriott recognizes that
guests want the latest technology offerings, such as high-speed wireless
internet access and IPTV, available in their guest rooms. To deliver these
services and prepare for future services not yet imagined, Marriott has
embarked on a significant upgrade of its networking infrastructure.

Marriott selected the
HP E Series
suite of routers, switches and controllers for this task, based on their
high-speed architecture and scalable system design. With remote intelligent
management and a lifetime warranty, the HP E Series offers the ideal
solution for a distributed network that can cope with large demand peaks
during events and holiday seasons.

To provide wireless access for its guests, Marriott will rely on HP E
Series wireless multiservice controllers, access points and devices. Access
devices, which integrate both wired and wireless connectivity ports in hotel
rooms, significantly reduce cabling costs, switch ports and power sourcing
equipment.

“We believe these technologies are an important part of our guests’
overall experience and, as such, we need a reliable, high-performance
network to ensure a smooth running, continuous service – which HP provides,”
said Andre Baljeu, director, Field Technology, Asia Pacific Region, Regional
Information Resources (I.R.) Office, Marriott International.

HP is partnering with leading hotel technology service provider
DOCOMO InterTouch to deploy
the HP E Series suite of routers and switch products in Marriott hotels in
Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. The first hotel installation was completed
this month. The full deployment is expected to complete in August 2011.

“Delivering the highest level of guest services is critical to the
success and competitiveness of hoteliers,” said Darren Read, director,
Networking – South Pacific, HP. “HP provides a core-to-the-edge networking
portfolio to help hotels such as Marriott innovate and deliver enhanced
guest services, creating new travel experiences for their guests and differentiation
from their competition.”
