PARIS, November 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Ekinops (Euronext Paris: EKI) (ISIN: FR0011466069), a leading provider of open and fully interoperable Layer 1, 2 and 3 network solutions, and international hospitality digital service specialists, Passman, today announced the availability of true 1Gb services-enabling routers, which will further enhance quality of service (QoS) delivery for Wi-Fi guest access services.
The upgrade marks the next stage in an enduring collaboration between the two companies and will enable Passman to meet the increasing data demands of hospitality customers with smart bandwidth management and higher capacity on-premises equipment.
"Serving a variety of customers from boutique hotels to international chains means we must meet a range of connectivity demands. In an industry where the customer is always first, reliability is key," comments Frédéric Lévy, Passman Group CEO. "Ekinops' OneAccess branded solution enables us to load and manage traffic smartly, ensuring we consistently deliver the highest possible quality of service, prioritizing and re-channelling capacity as needed. Since the beginning, the Ekinops team has been reactive, flexible and an invaluable partner supporting our international expansion."
Over the past three years, Passman's connectivity solution for the hospitality industry has benefited from the introduction of Ekinops' OneAccess product range (ONE540, ONE1540, ONE2510), which will now be joined by the ONE521 and ONE2511 OneOS6-based enterprise routers.
At the occasion of the EquipHotel Conference in Paris, November 11-15, hoteliers and other hospitality stakeholders can learn more about the Ekinops end-to-end solution, which is already field proven with a less than 1% breakdown rate.
"In our time working with Passman, customers' appetites for bandwidth have soared, as guests and consumers spend more time online accessing increasingly data hungry services," comments Pravin Mirchandani, CMO of Ekinops France. "To maintain service control, prioritization and management is key. Our collaboration with Passman has resulted in increasingly sophisticated, dynamic on-premises solutions that minimize data packet loss and jitter, ensuring high-priority, time-sensitive applications are appropriately supported. We look forward to exhibiting together at next week's conference to showcase how the solution has been tailored specifically for the complex connectivity needs of the hospitality sector."
