TeleAdapt Launches the DeskPoint™ on Board
the Sunborn Yacht Hotel in London


June 2006 - TeleAdapt, a leading provider of HSIA guest connection point solutions for the hospitality market worldwide, is pleased to announce its premier installation of the DeskPoint™ on board the exclusive Sunborn Yacht Hotel, in London.

The DeskPoint™, TeleAdapt’s latest HSIA guestroom solution, creates a simultaneous wired and wireless in-room access point. With its modern and sleek design, the DeskPoint™ is the perfect solution for conventionally wired properties who want to fully maximise usage of their existing Ethernet network by providing localised simultaneous Wi-Fi Internet access points. 

The DeskPoint™ gives users the added benefit of wireless connectivity allowing them to lay back in their luxurious suite instead of being ‘moored’ to the desk, whilst non Wi-Fi equipped users can connect at the desk with the 1.8m long CAT5 compatible retractable cable. 

Gordon Brown, TeleAdapt’s MD, states: ‘We are delighted to announce the first installation of the DeskPoint™ on board the Sunborn Yacht Hotel. We believe the DeskPoint™ is the solution of the future, responding to guest requirements for a simple and reliable connectivity. The launch of the DeskPoint™ affirms TeleAdapt’s leadership position in the delivery of HSIA access points – over 1 million hotel guestrooms are now equipped with TeleAdapt products - and builds on our 6 years of hospitality expertise. Integration with Western Telecom’s broadband service has been a great success, ensuring a straightforward HSIA connection whilst enhancing guest satisfaction.’

Kory Thompson, General Manager at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel, adds: “The installation of the DeskPoint™ at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel has proven to be a great success. Feedback from guests has been very positive, as they can now easily connect to the Internet whether they are Wi-Fi equipped or not. This has resulted in a noticeable increase in Internet usage. Western Telecom and TeleAdapt’s partnership has enabled us to enhance our guests’ experience, with a reliable and guest-friendly HSIA connection’.
