Clayton Crowne Plaza Selects Zhone's FiberLAN Solution

  • MTS
  • Zhone Technologies
OAKLAND, CA — The Crowne Plaza hotel in Clayton, Mo. has chosen Zhone Technologies, a provider of FTTx network access solutions to enable guests to access reliable high-speed Internet with greater bandwidth and fewer dropped connections from each individual room. The service is being integrated by MTS, a Zhone-certified partner, while the Clayton Crown Plaza undergoes renovations.

Prior to guestroom renovations, the Clayton Crowne Plaza consulted with their HSIA integrator, MTS, for a future-proof way to prepare its network infrastructure to meet guests' demands for speed and bandwidth availability. MTS recommended implementing a fiber backbone as well as extending fiber to each of the guestrooms. Zhone's MXK GPON-based Optical LAN solution (OLS) powering the fiber backbone and nine intermediate distribution frames (IDF's), enabled the hotel to be prepared for the future with the ability to install fiber to each of the 241 guestrooms, as well as 21,000 square feet of meeting space. As the renovations continue to progress and Zhone MXK-powered fiber is expanded to additional guestrooms, the hotel guests have Internet speeds of 600 Mbps wireless/1 Gbps hardwired and there will still be plenty of capacity to the MDF/IDF's to reliably increase bandwidth for Internet access and new applications. This ensures that Clayton Crowne Plaza is providing guests the bandwidth and speed they desire along with differentiating themselves from other hotels in the area.

"The solution has given the Clayton Crowne Plaza a way to increase revenue through increasing its occupancy, as well as a way to prepare for the future by enabling fiber in every guestroom as the requirements expand," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone Technologies. "The deployment will help the hotel to significantly improve its Internet availability for guests."

FiberLAN is a high-performance and high-density, GPON-based Optical LAN solution (OLS), delivering high speed data, voice and video to multi-level, multi-unit commercial and industrial complexes, including hotel rooms, bandwidth demanding desktops and work-stations. It is scalable for a single or multilevel building, or large campus environments where customers are installing new facilities or upgrading their current LAN infrastructures. Zhone FiberLAN is a next generation Optical LAN Solution built entirely on industry leading standards.
