The technology demands of hotel guests have evolved rapidly in the past few years. Just a few years ago low bandwidth Wi-Fi service to support laptop connections was considered adequate to meet the needs of mostly business travelers. Today both business and personal leisure travelers expect a seamless wireless experience – no dropped mobile calls and high bandwidth wireless connectivity – from the moment they leave the taxi, through the hotel lobby, up the elevator and into their room. These expectations exist because people experience changes in cellular and other wireless networks people experience wherever they go. Wireless experience has become as important feature affecting traveler's hotel choice decision as hotel amenities and comfort of hotel bed. Along with traditional “hotel features” travelers’ reviews websites, there are new sites rating hotels by wireless experience.
A number of hotels are pilot testing wireless check-in feature which are expected to be widely deployed in a near future. Hotels often turn over hundreds and larger ones thousands of rooms a day. Eliminating check-in lines will certainly help hotel business and increase satisfaction of the traveler.
Requirements to wireless networks in common and conference rooms areas are even higher than in a hotel room. Many hotels have wireless networks built with outdated network design approach, running on outdated hardware. Such networks simply do not meet the needs of hundreds of users, many with more than one wireless device, simultaneously demanding high speed access.
