  • Collaboration will help hospitality properties and MDUs more efficiently and cost-effectively meet network needs and requirements.

    Chicago, IL. — June  27, 2023Cloud5 Communications, a leading provider of communications and technology solutions for more than 5,000 hotels, MDUs, and commercial facilities across the Americas, and Positron Access Solutions, a specialist in carrier-grade telecommunications products, have partnered together to address the connectivity and cabling challenges experienced by many hospitality companies and MDUs as they seek to modernize their networks and meet the expectations of today’s guests and residents.

    Traditionally, upgrading legacy network infrastructure requires a comprehensive re-cabling of the property to enable high speed Internet services. Such work is often completed during a property renovation. For properties that need to improve their networks but have no renovations on the horizon, and don’t want to invest in costly and disruptive re-cabling, Positron’s solutions, combined with Cloud5’s network expertise, can bridge the gap.

    Through this partnership, Cloud5 can now offer clients with existing coaxial or twisted pair cabling the ability to provide high speed broadband without rewiring. Positron’s G.hn GAM extends Gigabit services to guest rooms or apartments over the existing coaxial cables or copper pairs – allowing properties to provide top-notch network connectivity and high-speed WIFI and/or IPTV services to guests and residents while saving substantial time, cost, and disruption to their operations.

    “We are thrilled to partner with Positron Access Solutions to bring these revolutionary solutions to our valued hospitality and MDU clients,” said Mark Holzberg, President and CEO of Cloud5 Communications.

    “This partnership will empower properties with legacy infrastructure to deliver seamless, high-quality, high-speed converged ethernet network access at a fraction of the cost of rewiring without construction disruption or downtime…it’s a win-win for our clients and their guests or residents,” continued David Heckaman, Vice President of Product at Cloud5 Communications.

    Through this collaboration, Cloud5 will integrate Positron’s GAM solutions into its suite of offerings, and support clients as they fold these solutions into their network operations - offering best practices, consultative know how and installation expertise via its skilled, five-star rated HSIA install teams.

    “We are pleased to partner with Cloud 5 to provide hospitality and property owners the ability to quickly and very cost effectively improve the experience of their clients and increase the value of their properties.”  Pierre Trudeau, President and CTO of Positron Access Solutions.

  • TORONTO, ON – June 27, 2023, Hotel Nikko San Francisco, a renowned luxury high-rise hotel located at 222 Mason Street, has announced the successful deployment of its high-speed Wi-Fi service. Using a ground-breaking solution from Positron Access Solutions, that combines Wi-Fi and bandwidth to create a less disruptive than fibre installation, by repurposing the existing coax to improve connectivity for all guests and enhance every individual's experience while staying at the 532-room hotel.

    "We were astounded by the remarkable data speed rates we achieved during the proof of concept with Positron," said David Ng, Director of IT at Hotel Nikko San Francisco. “Our team was excited to see the exceptional results during the proof-of-concept trial and very thankful for the flawless and quick integration without causing disruption to our hotel guests.”

    Positron partnered with a Tier-1 Telecom provider that is a leader for connectivity and network in the hospitality industry, proposed a cutting-edge technology solution to achieve a converged Ethernet network infrastructure over the same coaxial cabling that had been deemed unfit to support applications such as guest Wi-Fi and IPTV, while being ready to support other Ethernet/IP applications in the future. In tandem, Positron Access Solutions, a leading provider of bandwidth and broadband solutions, introduced the hotel to their G.hn Access Multiplexer (GAM) solution, which revolutionizes connectivity by delivering Gigabit bandwidth over existing telephone wiring or coaxial cabling. G.hn is an international standard (ITU-T G.9960) that enables Gigabit speeds to each subscriber without the costly and disruptive installation of fiber connections to every guest room.

    "Our GAM solution proved to be an invaluable asset in addressing the cable plant challenges. It not only saved the day but also expedited the delivery of an upgrade for this iconic hotel, offering a converged Ethernet infrastructure for a seamless guest experience", said Pierre Trudeau, President & CTO of Positron Access Solutions.

    For hotels seeking to enhance their connectivity, the traditional approach of rewiring can be invasive and costly. However, with solutions like Positron’s GAM, hotels with existing coaxial cabling or telephone wiring can use their current infrastructure. Positron's innovative solution harnesses the power of the ITU-T G.hn standard, facilitating Gigabit Ethernet transmission over existing copper or coax wiring.

    Hotel Nikko San Francisco's successful deployment of this cutting-edge technology marks a significant milestone, exemplifying how hotels can overcome connectivity challenges while leveraging their existing infrastructure investment.
