A hotel owner with a business of managing 300 rooms was seeking for a better Wi-Fi network solution. With the business continuing to grow, the hotel was planning to upgrade the legacy network, aiming to provide clients with higher-speed wireless internet access under the premise of cyber security as well as easy network management, so as to finally enhance client satisfaction and improve brand loyalty. On the one hand, there were only limited numbers of access points (APs) deployed on each floor of the hotel, which could not satisfy all the hotel staff and guests on three floors, and some guests had complained about the poor performance and slow speed; on the other hand, the hotel is at a period of fast development, the previous network infrastructure apparently can not meet the needs for larger scale and more guest numbers. Except for the requirement of high-speed network access for guest rooms, there are voice control systems, IP cameras, and other smart devices within the hotel, thus the new network deployment should take all the end devices in various areas into consideration. Cyber security is a key element the hotel attaches great importance to. However, the legacy network system lacks comprehensive security protection methods. For protection against big security problems such as information leakage, the hotel network was bound to upgrade immediately. Since there was no professional IT staff in the hotel, it always took a long time for having technicians to inspect and configure devices on the field when the network infrastructure went wrong.Solution
