LodgeNet Broadband Adds Corning MobileAccess In-Building
Cellular to Growing Portfolio of Solutions




SIOUX FALLS, SD, June 20, 2011 – LodgeNet Broadband, a business unit of LodgeNet Interactive Corporation (NASDAQ: LNET), today announced the addition of the MobileAccessVE in-building wireless solution to their growing portfolio of products following the completion of the Corning MobileAccess solutions certification program.

“Having adequate in-building cellular voice and data signal connectivity from mobile operators is a growing need for all hotels,” said Steve Pofahl, General Manager of LodgeNet Broadband. “With the vast majority of cellular connections and mobile data downloads being made inside of meeting and hotel rooms, the need for clear, strong signals is extremely important to the hotel business. The MobileAccessVE solution installs in days instead of months, right onto existing HSIA (LAN) structured cabling, and it is certified by Cisco as 100% compatible, bringing a higher level of guest satisfaction to hoteliers.”

The MobileAccessVE solution takes advantage of existing Cat5e/6 LAN cabling for cellular signal distribution, while maintaining full Ethernet and wireless LAN capabilities. This cost-effective approach does not consume LAN capacity and minimizes the disruption and deployment costs associated with new cabling projects and conventional DAS infrastructure solutions.

“Conventional cellular antenna systems were hard to justify for many hotels because of costs and disruption associated with breaking open walls and pulling new cabling. However, MobileAccessVE is a perfect fit since it re-uses existing cabling commonly found in almost all hotels,” said Jeff Kunst, Vice-President of Product Management for Corning MobileAccess.
