Traders Hotel in Abu Dhabi deploys Aruba’s wireless technology

ABU DHABI, November 22, 2017

Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi, part of the Shangri-la Group, has deployed powerful new 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi technology from Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company.
This will help the hotel to establish a high-density, Gigabit hotel-wide wireless network, said a statement. 
The implementation has resulted in 40 per cent increase in wi-fi coverage across the hotel premises, a significant reduction in help desk calls pertaining to wi-fi connectivity issues and supports the introduction of new guest e-services including tablet check-in, iPad menus and payment gateway.
At the time of vendor selection, Aruba was a clear favourite.
Jun Vales, IT manager, Shangri-La Hotel and Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi, commented: “We already had a fantastic experience with Aruba, having deployed their solutions at the Shangri-La Hotel in HhDubai, and were aware of the numerous high-profile hospitality and retail chains in their customer base. Best of all, despite the strengths of their brand and technology, their team made every effort to provide us with the support we required. What truly set Aruba apart was that it is part of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) brand - a global powerhouse. Selecting Aruba would simplify our IT roadmap since we already had HPE core switches.”
Traders Hotel’s IT team decided to utilise Aruba’s latest Wave 2 APs in its 302 guest rooms and also installed a number of APs in the corridors, guest public areas and outdoor sections of the hotel, ensuring 100 per cent wi-fi coverage of the guest areas -  representing an impressive 40 per cent improvement.
“We are the first hotel in the UAE to utilise this cutting-edge solution and believe the investment will ensure that we have no need to upgrade for at least the next three years,” said Vales. - TradeArabia News Service
