Maryland-May 27, 2003
Teletronics International, Inc. (Teletronics) announced
today the launch of its innovative non-intrusive Wi-Fi
solution at the Philadelphia Airport Residence Inn by
Marriott. This wireless high-speed internet access (HSIA)
service covers the Inn’s 102 guest rooms, common
areas, and meeting room and is offered to guests as
a complimentary amenity.
Different from a typical intrusive Wi-Fi HSIA installation
which requires installing access points in attics or
rooftops causing additional electrical work or the running
of cat-5 cables to the access points, a process that
involves the tearing up of walls or modifying existing
building infrastructures, Teletronics Wi-Fi HSIA service
is non-intrusive. The installation simply requires a
skilled technician to wire a room, typically in less
than 5 minutes, causing little or no interruption of
normal hotel business operations. Teletronics’
patent-pending technology distributes a Wi-Fi signal
via the existing CATV cable connected to each guest
room. The signal is locally radiated through the air
via a small patch antenna installed in each room enhancing
performance by as much as 10 db resulting in the elimination
of most or all RF interference. This HSIA technology
also eliminates the need for imprecise and time-consuming
RF site-surveys which, over time, become ineffective
and/or obsolete due to ever-changing levels of RF interference.
All equipment is installed in secured locations at the
hotel (i.e. PBX rooms, cable/telephone closets, etc.).
“The introduction of this non-intrusive and non-invasive
Wi-Fi HSIA solution to the hospitality industry will
revolutionize the way hoteliers and others implement
the HSIA service in the future” noted Dr. Dickson
Fang, CEO of Teletronics.
Joe Coleman, general manager of the Philadelphia Airport
Residence Inn added, “[it] has been a pleasure
working with Teletronics. Their whole team has been
very professional during the entire installation, training
and silent trial period”.
