Downtown Chicago Hotel Installs In-Room Converged Networks
TheWit Hotel announces that they have entered into an agreement with Lorica Solultions, a networking provider, and developer ECD Company to complete the Lorica Room Center. TheWit is a new, 298-room luxury hotel currently under development in downtown Chicago.
Lorica Solutions is the developer of the Lorica Room Center (LRC), a fully managed converged network specifically designed for the hospitality industry. The Lorica Room Center acts as a communications hub and monitoring node for all in-room devices, enabling new technologies like HDTV while providing proactive monitoring and support from Lorica's 24x7 network operations center and help desk.
Scott Greenberg, president and co-owner of ECD, says "I am always looking to apply new technologies to create a unique guest experience. I was intrigued with Lorica because it allows us to deliver a wide variety of technologies directly into the guest room. We look forward to working with Lorica. Its technology is sophisticated and intelligent, and it offers a very cost effective approach that allows us to provide state-of-the-art guest services on a single converged network."
ECD strives to innovate by taking proven successful real estate concepts and improving them through innovation. The company's multi-use developments and hotel properties specifically cater to the individual needs of the area in which they are built. In addition to theWit, ECD Company has several other new projects in development.
This is Lorica's first fully converged network installation in Chicago. Lorica will also manage and proactively monitor the network via its network operations center.
