Case Study

Enabling anytime, any room internet access.

Apollo Hotel Papendrecht installed a new, state-of-the-art wireless network to provide guests and staff with anytime, anywhere Internet access during a major renovation.

“The network was built with the future in mind, and audio visual broadcasting is just around the corner for us. We are very pleased with the solution and support we’ve received from Juniper Networks.”

Apollo Hotels & Resorts is a high-quality hospitality chain that prides itself on providing “the true spirit of local hospitality” through one-of-a-kind properties. Located in the Benelux region of northwestern Europe, each establishment is totally unique and has its own character, amenities, and atmosphere.

Business Challenge

Previously, HotSpot tickets based on a third-party service provided Internet access, so the hotel had no control over the quality of the service, which offered patchy coverage at best, and only serviced communal areas such as the hotel lobby and restaurant.

Business Solution

Apollo opted for a solution utilizing Juniper’s Simply Connected portfolio of switching, wireless LAN, and security products.

“I liked the ‘one supplier’ concept Juniper Networks could give us. Firewall, switching and wireless technology could all be combined and integrated to work together,” said IT manager Peter Orgelist.

Business Results

Today, a high performance, Simply Connected network from Juniper manages all of Apollo’s hotel services.

“In nearly 18 months, we haven’t had a single network outage, which is great! Our guests love the fact that they have free, fast, and reliable access to the Internet with hotel-wide coverage,” said Peter Orgelist.
