Citadines specialises in apart-hotel accommodation, combining the space and amenities of an apartment with the support services of a hotel. With 250 properties situated across the globe, Citadines is a world leader in the provision of serviced apartment facilities.
Having previously supplied TV systems to all of Citadines' six London properties, Airwave was duly tasked to upgrade the television technology in Citadines’ new Islington property. Samsung 690 Series hospitality TVs were recommended, with 143 x 43-inch and 49-inch displays wall-mounted in the guest-rooms.
Of course, a top-quality TV entertainment system needs to be underpinned by fast, robust WiFi. A RAN (room area network) was implemented by Airwave partner, WiFi and Internet services provider, Wifirst (also a Citadines key partner, having supplied internet services to 40 Citadines properties in Europe).
WiFirst and Airwave engineers worked together, assessing, restructuring and improving the property’s network infrastructure - ultimately, providing Citadines Islington with a lightning fast WiFi connection.
“Our WiFi provision offers the guest, a secure, easy and fast connection to the room’s WiFi network, thanks to our RAN, we promise an intuitive connection journey of no more than 5 seconds, just scan a QR code and you’re connected to the internet, it’s that easy!”
Vincent Jouan, Technical Director, Wifirst
