Nomadix and MCOM Highlight New Hospitality Solutions to Address Bandwidth Management at Equip'Hotel Conference

Smartphones and Tablets Feed Into the Growing BYOD Movement, Requiring New Tools to Manage Network Quality, Security and Usage

PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Next week at Equip'Hotel in Paris, Nomadix, innovator and pioneer of public access gateways, and MCOM Media Communications, a leading IT and in-room entertainment solutions provider, will address how the European hospitality industry can better allocate existing bandwidth to increase their management and monetization of network access. Located in MCOM's booth at Hall 2, Stand D62, Nomadix and MCOM will provide demonstrations and application examples of how hotels, restaurants and other venues can leverage network access for a competitive edge and increased customer satisfaction.

With the explosion of Wi-Fi-enabled devices and the BYOD (bring your own device) movement, hotels of all sizes are struggling to keep up with the exabytes of data crossing their networks. The resulting increase in bandwidth consumption by guests is changing the way in which hotels manage their public and private Internet access networks, forcing them to seek alternative solutions that help them squeeze more performance out of their existing bandwidth.

Nomadix has heard from IT specialists and public access providers across the continent about the breadth of bandwidth management challenges, and recently conducted a series of educational seminars throughout Europe to address this issue. MCOM, a well established Nomadix partner, concurs that the impact of mobile devices by guests on host networks is a top priority for leading organizations. In response, MCOM has integrated Nomadix access gateways in their HOTstream MultiScreen platform, which offers bundled IPTV, VOD, HSIA and Hotel Interactive services to guests' mobiles devices as well as in-room TVs.

"With the additional bandwidth demands being placed upon hotels, it becomes vital for them to embrace tools that will help them do more with the network that's already in place," said Fred Reeder, chief commercial and operating officer of Nomadix. "Better bandwidth control also allows hotels to more efficiently manage their tiered affinity guest programs that offer higher bandwidth access to premium users."

Nomadix offers two key products to address these bandwidth challenges. The AG 5800 is a high-performance access gateway that enables a fast, seamless extension of a wired or Wi-Fi network to create a secure, public Internet access network. The Nomadix Internet Traffic Optimizer (NITO) is a powerful appliance designed to boost existing bandwidth that also offers insight for intelligent bandwidth management/allocation and has extensive reporting capabilities. When paired together, the AG 5800 and NITO ensure fair and fast bandwidth for public access to keep Internet traffic flowing, leading to an improved user experience.

As a leading IT solutions provider and Nomadix partner, MCOM is noted for their expertise in integrating technology products for the hospitality industry, offering hotels a complete solution. Commented Dimitris Petinos, VP marketing & international sales at MCOM, "The AG 5800 and NITO products from Nomadix enable hotels to first gain insight into how the network is being used, then throttle traffic accordingly to ensure that all users get fair, quality access through a secure network that can efficiently adapt to each mobile device. These products are seamlessly integrated in our HOTstream Internet solution offering support for multiple portals, last name/room number login, device roaming, in-room silent login, multiple devices per ticket and many other advanced HSIA features."

Redis is not only the fastest database, but it has become the most popular among the new wave of applications running in containers. Redis speeds up just about every data interaction between your users or operational systems. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dave Nielsen, Developer Relations at Redis Labs, will shares the functions and data structures used to solve everyday use cases that are driving Redis' popularity.
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...
The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data.
