at IH/M&RS for ExpressNet® AirLink
AirLink Voted Best New Technbology Product at
Annual Trade Show and Conference
|New York, NY - November 16, 2004 --- Teledex
announced today at the 2004 International Hotel/Motel and Restaurant Show
that it has won the prestigious Editors' Choice Award for Best New Technology
Product for its innovative ExpressNet AirLink high-speed Internet access
solution. Over 130 entries in six categories competed for top honors at
this annual trade show and conference, the industry's largest such event.
The awards were announced during grand opening ceremonies held just before
the opening of this three-day event in New York City.
Utilizing existing phone wiring (Cat3) infrastructure
and VDSL (very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line) transport technology,
ExpressNet AirLink allows any lodging property to simultaneously deploy
both wireless and wired HSIA in a very cost-effective manner. The innovative,
tri-mode AirLink ExpressPort can function in a combination of three different
configurations: 1) as an ultra-fast 802.11g wireless access point, delivering
54 Mbps of bandwidth; 2) as a wireless Ethernet client (also referred to
as a wireless "bridge"), which provides a convenient plug-in connection
to a wireless network for users who are not wireless-enabled; and 3) a
hard-wired VDSL converter that delivers blazing connection speeds over
conventional telephone wiring.
Comments Dean Compoginis, director of marketing for Teledex, "We're honored to receive this prestigious award for AirLink, and and welcome the attention this innovative high-speed Internet access solution is receiving here at the IHMRS show. AirLink is truly a groundbreaking new product and technology, combining for the very first time an 802.11g wireless access point, a wireless bridge, and an ultra-fast VDSL converter in one compact package that tucks neatly underneath Teledex guestroom telephones. What's more, because ExpressNet uses existing Cat2/3 phone wiring to deliver blazing fast access speeds, in the range of 15-20 Mbps, there's no expensive and disruptive recabling necessary to provide best-in-class service that enables new revenue-generating content and services to the guestroom."
Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2005, Teledex has shipped over 8 million guestroom telephones shipped to over 125 countries, and is the preferred supplier of guestroom telephones to all major global hotel chains, as well as a number of other multinational corporations.
