When Vienna-based Almanac Hotels was planning for a new boutique hotel in a historic building in the heart of Barcelona, it wanted to exemplify its trademark “wow” factor by extending robust Wi-Fi access to every corner of the solidly built structure. The company evaluated three providers and selected Fortinet because of its comprehensive, single-vendor solution. Almanac Hotels also liked Fortinet’s Virtual Cell technology that enables devices to move between access points without a new login each time.
Fortinet Partner CCT Software Solutions designed an architecture that brought secure, seamless wireless connectivity for guests’ devices, the VoIP telephony system, and on-demand television services—in guest rooms and suites, conference facilities, and even outdoors. The company is very pleased with the Wi-Fi system in Barcelona and plans to deploy similar systems at several new hotels in their pipeline.
