We collaborated with MLR Networks to roll out a Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi solution across all of Village Hotel Club’s UK locations. The solution is proactively monitored and managed remotely by us.
Alongside MLR Networks, we had already collaborated at three of the new locations opened by Village in late 2014 and 2015 to install a Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi solution. Following the success of the project and the customer and corporate experience at these hotels, Village decided that this solution was to be implemented at all locations across the chain.
Cisco Meraki was chosen as the solution of choice after careful consideration of the alternatives available on the market. Features such as the ability to provide secure access within a single unified solution to both customers and staff alike was seen to be of significant benefit.
The working partnership brought Village the expertise and skills of two complementary specialist teams. MLR performed wireless network surveys prior to each installation to determine the optimum locations for access points at each hotel to ensure the best connectivity and signal strength possible.
We configured each individual access point and network switch whilst also devising the policies and rules that allow Village to control guest access and secure corporate access. Overlaying this, we provide a managed service for each hotel location ensuring that the wireless network, in addition to the core corporate network, is proactively monitored and managed. Utilising the Cloud-based Cisco Meraki management console, the managed service team remotely manage each individual hotel location and make changes where necessary from our Network Operations Centre
