The Challenge

The objective of the Wi-Fi network is to provide both data access and voice access. Having significant investment made in the current network, providing cost effective alternate solution was of paramount importance. The new solution has to be cost effective and should provide seamless Wi-Fi coverage to handle Voice calls through Wi-Fi phones without any call drops.

Providing integrated Wi-Fi solution and to overcome the limitations posted by the current deployed indoor access points was a major challenge. The tall structure of the property (30 Floors) was an interesting challenge to overcome.

The Wireless Solution

BroVis Wireless Networks deployed its Air Client 100 series based outdoor solution. The AC100 were deployed in a manner that Wi-Fi signals were beamed into the building from outsdie the building.

  • The objective was met by Brovis' unique ODU solutions
  • Seven AC 100 HP (Outdoor Access Point) were placed outside the building so as to beam in the signals from outside.
  • All the units were placed on a pole as shown below
  • These AC100 coverage lighted-up the entire 30 floors of the hotel like a halogen flood-light

Signals reached each and every room as desired with a SNR value of 30

Why BroVis’ Wireless for Four Seasons
