Strand hotel gets top shelf wireless internet

Dimension Data, a systems integration company that provides standard Information, Communication & Technology (ICT) solutions, recently deployed one of the largest Ruckus Wireless, installations in Namibia at the Strand Hotel, Swakopmund.
This milestone achievement coincides with Dimension Data’s tenth year anniversary. Managing Director, Rowan Kleintjes said, “Dimension Data Namibia is an authorised reseller and installer of Ruckus Wireless products and we are extremely proud of this huge achievement. Strand Hotel, Swakopmund wanted to ensure its guests have the best possible internet experience, which is why they opted to install the Ruckus solution – where the entire site is managed from the Walvis Bay office”.
Riaan Graham, sales director for Ruckus Wireless sub-Saharan Africa said, “Ubiquitous, fast, and reliable broadband wireless is now one of the main criteria for selecting a hotel in today’s mobile world. However, for many hoteliers, wireless coverage tends to be spotty, performance erratic, and connections unstable.
The amount of users accessing Wi-Fi concurrently from multiple devices only adds to the list of problems. However, Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity for guests is no longer an amenity, but a must-have requirement, and many hoteliers view wireless connectivity as an essential element to improving guest satisfaction”.
According to Kleintjes, Ruckus is a world leader in hospitality solutions and has become the gold standard for hotels across the world. It is the only Wi-Fi technology that combines Smart Mesh Networking, directional high-gain radio frequency signal routing and centralized management with 802.11ac, for unprecedented coverage and performance at an affordable price.
Added Kleintjes, “Strand Hotel required a scalable, cost effective solution for their guests to connect seamlessly and browse the internet at high speed. Ruckus Wireless ensures guests receive the best Wi-Fi signals, better coverage, stable connections and consistent performance. This was also one of the first wireless sites to deploy wireless 802.11ac technology in Namibia. This means the system at the Strand Hotel Swakopmund is now four times faster than the traditional wireless installations.”
By using Ruckus Wireless, the wireless foot-print at the Strand Hotel was optimised and less access points were used for optimal coverage saving costs in the long run – ensuring effective coverage.
“Dimension Data’s capability to install new technology and deliver on our promises of accelerating our clients’ ambitions is evident with this deployment and we look forward to bringing additional value to The Strand Hotel Swakopmund,” Kleintjes said.Dimension Data, a systems integration company that provides standard Information, Communication & Technology (ICT) solutions, recently deployed one of the largest Ruckus Wireless, installations in Namibia at the Strand Hotel, Swakopmund.
