Broadband Bonding & SD-WAN Solutions for Hospitality

Small boutique motels, larger hotel chains, resorts, and conference and convention centers leverage SD-WAN with broadband bonding to manage their bandwidth intelligently, and provide problem-free, cost-effective Internet access to their guests and employees.

Hospitality Networking Needs

Businesses in the hospitality industry must provide high-performance Internet for their facilities or face angry customers and loss of business. Property owners and managers must operate highly flexible networks that allow for them to easily add bandwidth as the need arises, mix and match various ISPs for reliability, prioritize critical Internet traffic for performance, and easily monitor and manage the overall network and traffic. They need to be able to allocate resources on a per-user basis and/or traffic type. They also need a robust network that seamlessly operates even if one of the WAN links goes down with minimal or no human intervention.

Many common Internet applications powered by private, public and hybrid clouds also benefit from high-performance Internet. Real-time applications such as video streaming, VoIP, video conferencing and UC (Unified Communications) platforms are nearly ubiquitous and are fundamental for business travelers. These services all significantly benefit from a network that can adapt dynamically to network problems instantly and shield network problems from the end-user applications.

Application Optimizations

With SD-WAN with Broadband Bonding, up to 16 WAN Internet connections from any ISP can be aggregated for high throughput. Combined with built-in layer-7 DPI (Deep Packet Inspection), advanced QoS (Quality of Service) and traffic shaping, applications are optimized for utmost end-user satisfaction.

Zero-Touch Configuration

SD-WAN virtual or physical appliances are ideal for taking over the burden of network management for hospitality providers. Zero-touch installation enables drop shipments to locations and allows them to connect seamlessly to the Internet, corporate network and/or data centers via self-healing tunnels.

Centralized Monitoring

The optional Monitoring Portal provides a single pane dashboard for all registered devices and enables a single click remote access to each device if needed. Various telemetry and network statistics are stored in the Monitoring Portal for IT managers to have a comprehensive and actionable view of their network at their fingertips.

Bandwidth Management for Guests & Employees

Hotels and resort are expected to provide excellent Internet service for their guest that matches their reputation in how they treat their guests and employees. Downtime, brownouts or any other type of QoS problems in the network connectivity not only is unacceptable by their business customers but is also increasingly not acceptable by their guests in general. WiFi Internet connectivity has become ubiquitous in everyones daily lives and therefore guests expect flawless network performance when they are traveling.

Mushroom Networks SD-WAN appliances can support small boutique hotels with the entry level Truffle appliance and can scale all the way up to Truffle E and Truffle EX series with more WANs and increased capacity. Built-in features for segregating guest traffic from employee or corporate traffic using dynamic QoS and traffic shaping enables a flawless network experience for all users.
