Red Lion Hotels
and Telkonet, Inc
., a provider of centrally managed solutions for integrated energy management, networking, building automation and proactive support services, announces the agreement to supply a comprehensive managed high speed Internet access (HSIA) solution. The project will involve installing high-speed Internet access in more than 5,400 rooms in 30 properties across the United States and in providing customer support. The HSIA roll-out has commenced and will be completed early in Q3.
Telkonet's turnkey gateway server technology was a key factor in the decision, supported by the ability to manage and monitor the system remotely in real-time via Telkonet's acclaimed web-based Remote Management Console (RMC). The fact that Telkonet designs its own products and is able to offer an exceptional degree of customization based on the hotel chain's specifications was very important, enabling them to offer faster bandwidth options to selected users and to fine-tune the system set-up to individual locations.
Telkonet's, standards-compliant gateways are designed to offer intrinsic flexibility, enabling a unique degree of customization to suit individual hotels' requirements and customer demands, ensuring that the hotel chain gains the maximum advantage from the solution's inherently dynamic and flexible performance capabilities. This includes the option to add fully integrated energy management functionality to the same platform, in line with the quest to deliver improved energy efficiencies through to intelligent HVAC control. Supporting both wired and wireless access, Telkonet's solution is designed for ease of integration with any type of Wide Area Network (WAN) connection, underpinned by a comprehensive range of customer support services.
