The Mount Hotel Leads The Way For The Hospitality Industry By Deploying Meraki Wireless LAN Wednesday 14 December 2011 PDF Print Reading, UK, 14th December, 2011 - Value-added Distributor, Cloud Distribution Ltd, today announced that The Mount Hotel in Wolverhampton has successfully deployed a Meraki wireless solution from specialist technology providers, The MJC Group. The MJC Group has been providing IT solutions, IT support services and document management systems since 1983, offering customers specialist technologies that boast ease of use, great performance and affordability. MJC recently became a Meraki Gold Partner and has been working closely with Cloud Distribution to supply the Midlands and surrounding areas with state-of-the-art wireless LAN solutions from this vendor. The Mount Hotel in Wolverhampton was one of the first to deploy Meraki through MJC, after analysing customer feedback and identifying a strategic need for guests to have robust, high speed connectivity for mobile working with laptops and tablet devices. The hotel chose to deploy a wireless solution from MJC’s portfolio, after looking out into the marketplace and concluding that Meraki’s capabilities were the most suited to the hotel’s needs. MJC deployed a 28 access point solution in the hotel, to facilitate seamless, high speed connectivity. The solution also showcases the latest browser-based cloud controller for quick and easy installation, plus a customisable interface to further promote hotel services to guests. As the Mount Hotel is a Grade II Listed building 19th Century Manor House, detailed surveys and consultations where needed to ensure the discrete installation of the 28 access points across all areas of the hotel, to maintain a high signal strength throughout. Scott Bernard, Director of The Mount Hotel explains: “When looking for a new wireless solution it was important that we balance our need to have the latest technology with preserving the beauty of the buildings. The Team ensured access points were placed behind fixtures, fitting and false ceiling yet still delivered an Ethernet-like 802.11n performance. We see the customisable interface as a platform to further promote our services to guests, and help differentiate us from neighbouring hotels. The synergy of modern day technology, plus the high quality demands of hospitality and the hotelier industry, with our historic building, has been a complete success”. The Technical Team worked around operations, staff and guests when installing the system to minimise disruption. In addition, the training after the installation was easy to follow and now enables staff onsite to control and modify the wireless system without any technical intervention. Scott Dobson, Co-founder and Managing Director of Cloud Distribution is pleased to be working with MJC and is very proud of what Meraki has achieved for The Mount Hotel: “The sheer beauty and elegancy of The Mount deserves a first class wireless solution to match. Meraki is amongst the best in the industry and The Mount Hotel’s feedback has been extremely positive. The hotel boasts that the robustness of the wireless connection is great and that it encourages guests to stay in the bar longer; thus increasing sales. I look forward to seeing how Meraki can help The Mount Hotel to lead the industry and look forward to MJC’s next deployment.” - end - About Cloud Distribution Cloud Distribution is a Value Added Distributor focusing on the security, management and optimisation of devices which access the Cloud.
