In-Room Wi-Fi / Wired Access Point
|Watford, England August
1, 2006 - Following the successful deployment of the DeskPoint™, TeleAdapt,
a leading provider of in-room access point solutions for the global hospitality
market, is pleased to announce the release of two new versions of the TA-6900
DeskPoint™ and an upgrade of firmware with the availability of VLAN tagging.
Responding to customer demand, TeleAdapt will now introduce two new versions of the DeskPoint™: a RJ45 socketed version and an under-desk version. Both these versions will be fully plug and play and offer a simultaneous wired and wireless in-room solution from a single HSIA Ethernet socket. The DeskPoint™ ensures that hoteliers are able to offer both wired and wireless solutions without any further cable runs, and do not fall into the trap of offering only wireless or wired broadband options to their guests.
In addition, all DeskPoint™ versions now support 802.1Q compatible VLAN tagging. By offering VLAN tagging as standard, TeleAdapt has addressed an ever-increasing concern customers have relating to authentication and security, as VLANs have the ability to provide additional security not available in a shared media network environment.
Benefits of VLAN include:
Gordon Brown, TeleAdapt’s MD, states: ‘Following the successful introduction of the DeskPoint™, we are pleased to announce an upgrade to the product range with the introduction of 2 new versions and VLAN tagging. VLAN tagging ensures wired and wireless connections can be easily identified, allowing ease of authentication and additional security. Furthermore it allows hotels to reduce costs by removing the need for more hardware. In addition we are also introducing 2 new versions of the DeskPoint™ allowing hotels to choose which DeskPoint™ is more appropriate for their needs. With these new developments, we expect the DeskPoint™ to become one of the market leading products offering the choice between a wired and wireless connection’.
