Modern amenities meet iconic luxury at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, where the fastest Hotel Internet connection in Florida supports thousands of guests thanks to Hotwire Communications and a 20 Gigabit symmetrical fiber optics infrastructure.
Toggle Magazine recently featured an interview with Craig Corbin, Director of IT at the Fontainebleau, discussing the needs of the modern hotel guest, and how installing a Fision Fiber Optics infrastructure can support them today as well as the growing needs of tomorrow.
Excerpt from the article:
“…it was Hotwire Communications that offered the best deal based on a fortuitous discovery: Fontainebleau’s 22-acres perfectly straddle two of Hotwire’s independent fiber loops.
“It’s one of those ‘location, location, location’ stories where we happened to get lucky, but it’s also knowing when you’ve found a diamond inside a piece of coal,” Corbin says.
Hotwire agreed to install connection points to both the north and south side of the resort, providing Fontainebleau with built-in redundancy and the power of twice the fiber.
“It really turned into a win-win for both [Fontainebleau and Hotwire] because they are now able to cross-connect their two loops through [the hotel] instead of having to buy additional bandwidth on the surface,” Corbin says.
As a result, Fontainebleau got a better price. And “we have access to 20-gigabits worth of band-width,” Corbin says. The partnership officially went forward in late 2016, and the two-loop 10-gigabit network was officially up and running by March 2017.”
