Nexwave Telecoms deploys Aruba Network’s State-ofthe Art Secured Wireless Technology Solution for Mandarin Oriental

  • Hotel the first in Singapore to adopt the solution making it a choice venue for events and conferences

SINGAPORE, 17 June 2009 – Nexwave Telecoms Pte. Ltd. (‘Nexwave Telecoms’), a leader in integrated telecommunications products and services and ‘Platinum Partner’ of Aruba Networks, today announced that it has completed the implementation of a state-of-the-art secured wireless technology solution for Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. The hotel is the first in Singapore to adopt this solution, which many consider the ‘gold standard’ of wireless technology’.

Multiple award-winner, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, one of the most luxurious hotels in Singapore, with guestrooms overlooking the scenic Marina Bay, Singapore Harbour or City, needed a technology that would complement and increase the speed and efficacy of its existing network and one that would also enable all wireless points throughout the hotel to be managed in a seamless and efficient way. Aruba Networks’ solution met all the requirements. The hotel thus chose to work with Nexwave Telecoms to conduct a thorough site evaluation before deployment of the solution.

The Mobility Controllers and Access Points that have been installed throughout the hotel, have provided sophisticated functionality and secured wireless coverage in all of Mandarin Oriental’s meeting and function rooms and guest rooms with centralized management. The result is increased speed of internet access at common areas such as the ballrooms, business centre, lobby and waiting areas to meet the increasing demand for such secured access in corporate functions and conventions. The solution is able to monitor in real-time and troubleshoot the Access Points, including detecting unauthorized network intrusion, thus making the system a highly secure and stable one. This technological upgrade has reinforced the hotel’s position as a choice venue of conferences and events, particularly those requiring hightechnology and sophisticated internet access facilities.

Mr Steven Ng, Managing Director of Nexwave Telecoms said, “We were delighted to work with Mandarin Oriental, Singapore to implement the 802.11N wireless technology solution. It provides increased connectivity speeds, supports more applications and devices over the wireless network, provides capability for secured online transactions and enables guests to gain more timely access to business and other information over the internet. Our team of consultants and engineers, together with Mandarin Oriental’s IT team worked quietly behind the scenes while the hotel functioned normally with no disruption or inconvenience to guests. The success in helping the hotel meet its objective of providing superior services for guests in the most cost-effective, functional, efficient and unobtrusive manner was highly satisfying for us.”
