Xirrus Partner eLinear to Deliver Wi-Fi network for Al Rawada Rotana Suites

Xirrus, Ithe only Wi-Fi "Power-Play" that can replace Ethernet workgroup switches with Wi-Fi as the primary network connection, announced that its partner eLinear Solutions has delivered a powerful Wi-Fi network in Abu Dhabi.
The Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays were deployed for they were the only Wi-Fi devices capable of covering the large areas, support the extensive user population, and accommodate the high bandwidth applications used around the expansive property.
“The Al Rawada Rotana Suites lacked confidence in traditional wireless technologies and their ability to provide sufficient coverage and bandwidth for their prestigious business and vacationing clientele without negatively impacting the day-to-day operations of the property,” said Ramzi Nassar, president at eLinear Solutions Middle East FZ LLC. “Because of the thick concrete walls and sound proofed doors, traditional Wi-Fi architectures would have required too much additional hardware and cabling which would have been cost prohibitive, and would have required access to all rooms to install equipment – a burden not welcomed.”
“The Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays were the exact solution we have been searching for to deliver advanced wireless capabilities to our valued guests,” said Tarek Sharif, general manager at Al Rawada Rotana Suites. “We had heard many mixed reviews regarding wireless solutions implemented at other hotels and we had waited and waited until finding the solution we felt would provide all the benefits we wanted – this was the one.”
“eLinear was highly professional throughout the project and delivered to us a very successful project well ahead of the time constraints agreed upon,” added Darshana Perera, IT manager at Al Rawada Rotana Suites. “This is one of the smoothest solutions we have seen and much of that can be attributed to the professionalism and planning of eLinear Solutions and to the quality of the Xirrus product. Managing this project according to eLinear’s eSP methodology was instrumental in delivering this successful project ahead of time.”
“Unlike other Wi-Fi vendors, we planned for the success of Wi-Fi by building a high performance system that pushes the power and intelligence to the edge of the network where it needs to be,” said Peter Degelin, regional sales manager at Xirrus. “We are honored to continue to work with eLinear and the Rotana Suites to bring the convenience and power of wireless to their clientele.”
