IPTV and interactive services to enhance guest experience
Today’s hotel guests expect connectivity and personalized entertainment experiences comparable to those they enjoy at home. Services that enable guests to easily stay in touch with their social and professional networks are among the key requirements when choosing a hotel.
In partnership with Samsung, Teleste has developed a solution that enhances to Internet connectivity while enhancing the guest experience. The solution provides high-speed Internet to each guest room and allows guests to use applications and various interactive services on their in-room smart TVs as they would at home. In addition, the solution enables guests to connect their own personal smartphones and tablets to the Internet through the smart television’s wireless access point.
High-speed Internet access and IPTV without adding new cables
Since many global hotels already feature coaxial wiring, Teleste’s new technology leverages this existing cabling to provide high-speed Internet access and IPTV services. Teleste’s DAH100 extends the IP network to more than 250 guest rooms simultaneously over the existing in-house coaxial cabling. Within each room, an Internet access point is provided via the embedded cable modem in the Samsung DOCSIS HE694 HTV television set. By consolidating IP-based services into the existing coaxial network rather than implementing new cabling, hotel operators can reduce connectivity expenses by up to 80 percent.
An all-in-one solution for the hospitality sector
Together, Teleste’s DAH100 and the Samsung DOCSIS HE694 HTV create a ready-to-go IP delivery solution that is ideal for the hospitality sector:
Fast and cost-efficient installation: Utilizing the existing coaxial cabling inside the premises, the solution can be installed without major room renovations. All that is needed is to install the DAH100 at the premises and Samsung DOCSIS HE694 HTV television sets in the guest rooms.
Reduced operating costs and improved service availability: Since the solution does not require any additional hardware purchases, it removes the need for separate cable modems and wireless access points. With these built into the TV, only one device is needed in each guest room. The reduced number of devices results in improved service availability and lower operational costs while minimizing compatibility issues and the need for maintenance and repair.
More guest room design flexibility: Providing cutting-edge services with less equipment creates more freedom in guest room design. This mix of luxury design and quality services will delight guests by enabling a comfortable and distinct experience.
