Huawei teams up with SAMPOL DIGITAL Spain in building All-Optical smart hotels
Jun 14, 2018
[Hannover, Germany, June 14, 2018] Huawei and SAMPOL DIGITAL Spain, a leading international integrated delivery provider, jointly launched the smart hotel solution based on the Agile POL (passive optical LAN) at CEBIT 2018 in Hannover, Germany. The Agile POL solution can effectively improve a hotel's revenue per available room (RevPAR) and gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR), helping hotels maximize business value.
SAMPOL DIGITAL, established in Mallorca, Spain, in 1934, has a history of over 80 years and focuses on providing end-to-end delivery solutions for public services and enterprises. The smart hotel solution has the following four advantages:
- Bears triple play services with optical fibers instead of Ethernet cables, coaxial cables, and telephone lines; supports both wired and wireless access and achieves simplified O&M.
- Fully utilizes the interference and corrosion resistance features of optical fibers to meet the requirements of high-end resort hotels in high-salt seaside and corrosion-prone locations. In addition, the solution supports link protection, is able to build reliable networks that last over 8 years, protects customers' network investment, and avoids repeated network constructions.
- Upgrades CATV to IPTV and unidirectional networks to bidirectional interactive networks, and pushes hotel value-added services to customers through both mobile phones and TVs.
- Turns IT rooms required by traditional network into hotel rooms, which directly increases the overall revenue, greatly improves user experience, and increases customer satisfaction and hotel room occupancy rate.
Juan del Junco, CEO of SAMPOL DIGITAL, shares commercial-use practices of smart hotels in collaboration with Huawei
Juan del Junco, CEO of SAMPOL DIGITAL, said: "Through the innovative cooperation with Huawei, SAMPOL has achieved rapid global service growth. Within the year of cooperation, SAMPOL has become the leader of Spain's hotel industry market and has expanded to 17 countries in 4 continents. In the future, SAMPOL will further cooperate with Huawei to provide superior service experience for more hotels around the globe. "
Leo Zhang, General Manager of Enterprise Solution Access Network Product Line, said: "Huawei continuously innovates in the POL field and provides differentiated solutions for hotel, education, and healthcare industries, providing optimal access service experience for end users. In the future, we will further strengthen the innovative cooperation with industry partners including SAMPOL DIGITAL to build simplified, reliable, and agile campus networks for global industry customers. "
Up to now, Huawei's Agile POL solution has been widely used in education, hotel, campus, electric power, finance, and transportation industries, providing leading digital transformation solutions for 200+ customers in over 40 countries. In the future, Huawei will work with global partners to build optimal campus networks for industry customers all over the world, build an open industry ecosystem, and help bring partners and customers business success.
Huawei together with its partners and customers is showcasing new digital transformation solutions to orchestrate a digital symphony at CEBIT from June 11-15 in Germany, the home of classical music. It is also hosting activities and sharing best practices around Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), all of which play a critical role in today's digital transformation.
