Enterprise Graded Wi-Fi Network For The Central Hotel

Posted by:Will Richards onMarch 3, 2019

The Client:

The Central Hotel is a bustling 70 bedroom hotel located in the heart of the Creative Quarter of Dublin City. The Central Hotel is 130 years old.

Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin, Ireland

 +353 (1) 679 7302

The Requirement:

The Central is a very busy hotel in the heart of Dublin, with a need for superfast reliable Wi-Fi and 100% coverage throughout the Hotel.  The Management team of the hotel took the initiative to address issues following numerous complaints regarding the lack of Wi-Fi coverage, slow speeds and the existing Wi-Fi network could not deal with the number of guests/visitors in the Hotel. This resulted in multiple users being dropped off the network halfway through sending an important business email or when trying to relax and stream a film.

There were numerous complaints.  As a consequence of SenSys Technology providing our recommendations on how to improve the Wi-FI Network, we were selected amongst numerous Wi-FI providers to survey the Hotel.

Following a survey by we confirmed that the existing Wi-Fi Cisco Aironet and 3com access points were of the older generation and also limited to 100Mbps best-case scenario. The Access points were not dual-band 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and consequently did not support reliable connectivity for the latest tablets, laptops, and smartphones.

The pre-existing WiFi access points were also not channel managed thus contributing to poor WiFi experience – slow speed and unreliability.

Security:
The existing Wi-FI solution was unsecured and unsuitable for compliance with the 2018 GDPR secure Wi-Fi ruling.

Incompatible & Outdated:
Existing access points were from different providers – Cisco and 3Com and were causing interference with each other. The access points used outdated technology. Channel management using 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz will prevent interference and provide a professional Wi-FI solution for the hotel.

It was important to address the Wi-FI, as Wi-Fi in this day and age has become more of a utility like gas/electricity. With the location of the Hotel, there is so much choice, and according to Trip advisor, good Wi-Fi is one of the most common searches when choosing a Hotel.

The SenSys Solution:

Armed with the results of our site survey, our technical experts set about designing an enterprise-grade managed WiFi solution tailored specifically to The Central Hotel’s building’s needs – being mindful of their plans for renovation.
