The VSAT network provides optimized support for IP-based applications and enables improved check in and check out efficiency at the hotels. IHG is upgrading its existing satellite network to Spacenet's SkyEdge VSAT platform for faster speeds, advanced functionality and improved network availability to support expanding applications. Spacenet is also providing managed network services that ensure maximum reliability, and serves as a single point of contact for the management of IHG's network services and Level 1 Help Desk.
"The private VSAT network provided to us by Spacenet not only gives us high availability but also meets our data integrity and security requirements," says Gustaaf Schrils, VP of technology and services, IHG Americas. "Over the years, Spacenet's services have helped us achieve our goals, providing a reliable and scaleable network for our hotel applications. We are confident that Spacenet and the SkyEdge VSAT platform will continue to deliver on these requirements."
