Yoqne’am, Israel, March 16, 2011 – Wavion™, a technology leader in metro and rural Wi-Fi with a new generation of Beamforming-based Wi-Fi base stations, and ECNEX, a leading provider of broadband technology solutions for the hospitality industry in Latin America, announce today the deployment of Wavion’s Wi-Fi base stations for high speed internet access in major hotels in Mexico.
The deployment is based on Wavion’s WBS-2400 base stations and includes a prestigious Hotel in Polanco, Mexico City (picture); the Holiday-Inn hotel in Leon Guanajuato; the Silver Sands and Capri Hotels in the Mayan Riviera; the Holiday-Inn Hotels in Pachuca, Queretaro and Cuernavaca, to name a few.
“We have selected Wavion’s Wi-Fi solution due to its enhanced coverage and capacity,” said Ernesto Romero ECNEX’s Founder and CEO. “We are very pleased with the outcome. Using Wavion we were able to cover all rooms, hallways and outdoor areas with only a few base stations. For example, in the Polanco Hotel, we used three WBS-2400 base stations to cover all 712 rooms and pool area. During peak time, each Wavion base station handles over one hundred concurrent users, providing an excellent user experience”.
Wavion’s unique and powerful WBS-2400 spatially adaptive Beamforming base stations provide extended coverage, higher throughput and superior indoor penetration.
Unlike conventional indoor Wi-Fi equipment, which requires an access point per every few rooms, Wavion’s solution covers a hotel with few base stations from the outdoor, even in heavy foliage environments. This waives indoor drilling and wiring and furthermore, enables outdoor coverage as well as covering all rooms, making Wavion an excellent solution for hotels and resorts.
“Wavion is proud to partner with ECNEX in the hospitality market”, said Daniel Dominguez, Wavion’s Vice President Latin America. “We are pleased that our superior coverage, capacity and reliability have significantly contributed to ECNEX’s success in providing high quality service to their customers. It is yet another proof of the added value of our unique and powerful Beamforming technology to the hospitality market.”
