Marconi switches drive Emirates Tower network
Emirates Towers has one of the most sophisticated networking infrastructures of any hotel in the world. Marconi will be showing you how it works at Gitex.
Marconi is re-building the Emirates Towers Hotel on its stand at Gitex. Well, not quite, but it will be showing a replica of the IP-based network it installed at the hotel.
The network, which the company believes to be the first of its kind in the world, carries multi-channel TV, a video on demand service, in-room Internet access, the hotel’s management system and its closed circuit TV system, over a single fibre-optic solution.
The whole thing is hung off Marconi Gigabit Ethernet and ATM switches.
If your communication requirements are not quite on the scale of Emirates Towers Hotel, you will still find futuristic solutions to fit your requirements.
Marconi is introducing its Sphericall IP PABX, which offers customers the choice of Voice over ATM or Voice over Ethernet.
There will also be a multimedia presentation on Marconi’s large-scale Intelligent Packet Network (IPN) solution that is scaleable from large enterprises to public networks.
On the networking side, Marconi is demonstrating its current Ethernet and ATM products along with network management products including the new ESR5000 Ethernet core switch, the ES1000 and ES2000 Ethernet wiring closet switches, and the SE2530 and SE440 integrated access devices.
