Kempinski Emirates Palace Hotel upgrades Internet connection to provide more connectivity services for guests

The Kempinski Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi has upgraded its internet connectivity, to meet growing demand for guests and visitors.

The hotel has upgraded from an ATM circuit to Ethernet, going from a single 8MB connection to dual 10MB load balanced links, to provide optimum bandwidth speed.

The upgrade will allow the hotel to provide more robust connectivity and greater bandwidth for its Internet services, which include a hotel-wide wireless network, which covers from pool to guest rooms.

Hans Olbertz, general manager of Emirates Palace said: "At Emirates Palace we endeavor to provide the best services and facilities in every facet of operations and this substantial technological development is one more way in which we are following through on this commitment."

The improved bandwidth will also help the hotel to cope with extra demand for connectivity during events and conferences, and will also allow the hotel to expand its video conferencing services, said Hakam Sourani, director of IT and AV at Emirates Palace.

"With a worldwide reputation for excellence and as the leading conference hotel, it is imperative we keep abreast of the latest developments and offer our guests the most advanced options available," said Sourani.
