Hotels Turn to Fiber Technology to Increase Customer Satisfaction

Whether it is a luxury resort or a budget-friendly hotel, guests expect reliable, fast and secure connectivity. With an increased demand for data accessibility, real-time collaboration, gaming, social media and streaming video on demand, travellers’ communication and entertainment needs are putting more and more demand on a hotel’s existing network infrastructure.

Guests are not the only ones limited by old legacy local area networks, or LANs. IT manager and hospitality administrators are tasked with ensuring operational demands within their facilities. This includes billing and reservation, security and surveillance, fire alarm and door access systems.

The issue is that legacy copper-based LANs are no longer a viable option for these applications. There has been an industry shift to fiber-based networks. Unlike the traditional copper-based LAN, passive optical LAN provides greater speed, reliability and security, with significant capital and operational expense savings.

As the hospitality industry looks at ways to future-proof its network infrastructure, the Association of Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN) hosts a webinar on July 9 at 11 a.m. EDT to discuss the benefits of fiber-based passive optical LAN.
