Simply put, “hotels have a lot of wires” connecting each guestroom and administrative and common areas with the different technology components. In today’s hotel environment, with so many important applications and subsystems relying on a more sophisticated environment, a ’Converged Network’ is the only practical solution.
The converged network cabling is the backbone infrastructure cabling which is a critical component to ensure day to day operations at maximum capability and efficiency.
Newly constructed hotels have an advantage in designing the converged network from the ground up, to allow data, voice and video
communications to share the same cable. However, older hotels can also benefit from hybrid concepts that can facilitate and integrate both the older legacy (twisted-pair) wiring along with the new multifunctional cable designs.
