In today’s world of online reviews and social media, there is stiff competition for customers, and the quality of the Wi-Fi deployments in hospitality environments is often ranked more importantly than clean sheets and towels. Good quality Wi-Fi is expected as part of the room rate; if the hotel cannot provide functional Wi-Fi, forget about happy guests, good reviews, or repeat business.
Hospitality environments have unique networking requirements and constraints as compared to other types of properties. It is therefore important to capture and understand all of the requirements and constraints systematically prior to picking out your AP hardware. Additionally, different hospitality environments cater to different customers and therefore have their own distinct requirements and constraints to contend with.
