Travel News 23 Jun 2016

AccorHotels has selected Ruckus Wireless as their new “preferred Wi-Fi partner”.

The deal, which was announced this week at the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) in New Orleans, will see Ruckus update AccorHotels’ Wi-Fi technology and infrastructure on a global level.

“Our digital strategy is hyper-focused on our customers and owners – and their expectations for high-performance, multi-access, personalised Wi-Fi services,” said David Esseryk, AccorHotels’ vice president of guest technology & innovation.

“Ruckus’ understanding of the hospitality industry and close relationship with global HSIA services providers made the choice clear-cut. We look forward to working together, streamlining processes and ultimately further enhancing our powerful brand DNA.”

Ruckus says it would now “equip AccorHotels’ global properties with Wi-Fi technologies and service offerings, while updating its technical infrastructure”. 

“The Ruckus 802.11ac access point (AP) product portfolio with the Ruckus management platform will provide both cost and process efficiencies across locations,” the company added.
