Extreme Networks Elevates the Hospitality Wi-Fi Experience with Next Gen WiNG Solution Launched at HITEC 2017

Consumer expectations for seamless Wi-Fi have significantly increased in recent years, especially in the hospitality market where guests expect their room to include its own access point (AP) to support multiple devices. Today at HITEC, the world's largest, most premier hospitality conference in Toronto, Extreme Networks, Inc. announced its ExtremeWireless WiNG AP 7612 designed to support the specific needs of the hospitality industry. With the WiNG AP 7612, Extreme offers customers a solution with hotel-grade aesthetics, faster installation and application Quality of Service (Application QoS) right at the AP.

In the hospitality market, the AP's design is especially important, as most hoteliers do not want their wireless solution to interfere with the aesthetic of their guest rooms. The round edges and shadow reducing bevels on the 7612 ensure that the AP can be seamlessly deployed across hotel zones – from guest rooms to conference rooms. It also features a market-proven Snap-On bracket that reduces installation time to just minutes, a crucial benefit for hotels that opt to install one AP per room.

As part of Extreme's end-to-end wireless solution, the 7612 integrates network application visibility analytics and QoS into the AP. This integration enables the management of bandwidth based on guest application requirements and ensures lower priority Internet applications do not degrade the business traveler's experience. The AP 7612's Multiuser MIMO ensures the guest experience with the capacity to support many guest devices. Extreme's WiNG architecture further differentiates with a self-optimizing wireless network well suited to support the increasing number of new guest Wi-Fi devices.

Key Product Highlights:

  • Seamlessly Designed for Easy Install: The ExtremeWireless WiNG AP 7612 is the smallest wall plate AP on the market and was designed specifically with the hospitality market in mind. Its slimness and snap-on mounting ensures that it can be easily installed during a room servicing and its 'hide in plain sight' appearance will not disrupt the aesthetic of the guest room.  
  • Powered by Extreme's WiNG Architecture: The ExtremeWireless WiNG AP 7612 was purpose built to deliver guests with reliable high performance Wi-Fi within-guest room for an 'At Home Experience', and addresses upgrade fatigue with a longer investment cycle.
  • Customized Experiences with ExtremeAnalytics: Extreme's analytics and location-based services enable push enticing offers to in-room guests and residents via their mobile devices to personalize their stay.
  • Differentiated by Application QoS: Application QoS at the AP enables an enhanced guest experience based on their specific needs.
