Quadriga has today announced an extended range of Internet capabilities with the launch of QConnect, a guest connectivity solution with supporting network capabilities. This enables it to provide hotels with flexible and robust solutions to their business-critical guest WiFi and wired Internet needs, optimising both available hotel bandwidth as well as hotel budgets.

QConnect from Quadriga offers guests easy, seamless WiFi throughout the property, and provides a host of capabilities that enable hotels to deliver a tailored guest Internet experience. It also provides hotels with the confidence that they are cost-effectively managing their available bandwidth and providing a quality and fair service to all guests. Guests can select from multiple payment options and enjoy easy access to WiFi via multiple mobile devices.

QConnect enables hotels to define their own guest connectivity packages configured to their needs, with the ability to set pre-defined bandwidth and price options for guests including a ‘free’ option, as well as support for multiple hotel areas, with different connectivity packages defined by area and by type of guest. In addition hotels have the flexibility to customise the guest home page by location, further tailoring the Internet experience.

QConnect is based on industry standard network hardware, and Quadriga’s expert QNetworks team can recommend and implement a vendor agnostic solution, depending on requirements. Additionally, through QNetworks the QConnect solution can be extended to incorporate a wide range of network services, including optimal bandwidth into the property, as well as bandwidth optimisation services to ensure available bandwidth is utilised more efficiently as guest Internet demands increase.

According to Roger Taylor, Quadriga’s CEO, "It is essential today that hotels provide fast, easy and seamless Internet connectivity throughout the property. This requires hotels to overcome increasingly complex Internet and network challenges, with solutions that are cost-effective and commercially viable. Our new QConnect guest connectivity solution combined with the capabilities of our specialist Networks team, including network management, consultancy and delivery services enables hotels to address these issues.

"Our proven Internet and networking capabilities, providing wired and Wifi Internet services for over 10 years to over 120,000 rooms, mean Quadriga is ideally placed to act as the single partner to hotels in the face of the growing Internet challenge."
