Hotel Improves Wireless Services for Employees and Guests
Hotel Agora enhances image by boosting online services for guests and tightening compliance with copyright law.
With Notre Dame Cathedral just 300 meters away, the seven-storey Hotel Agora Saint Germain lies in the center of the world-famous Latin Quarter in Paris. The hotel, managed by Cedric Sahuc, provides a luxurious haven for travelers amid the rich culture and history of the French capital, close to iconic landmarks such as the Louvre, the River Seine, and the Pantheon.
Sahuc sought the advice of Gonzague Dambricourt from Bouche Cousue, an Internet solutions partner, who recommended the Cisco® Meraki branch gateway and 802.11n wireless LAN. "Cisco Meraki provides a reliable networking solution," Dambricourt says, "and its cloud management model means there's no need for onsite IT."
Since the Cisco Meraki platform monitors the network from the cloud, Sahuc is notified of any problem within minutes. With Cisco Meraki remote tools, he can often fix issues without going onsite. Guests no longer complain about Internet problems and are even able to stream video. "We can customize the system to our needs," Sahuc says. "It's nice to see everything in one interface."
