XETA Technologies Selected by Wingate Frisco for Bundled
Hospitality Communications Solution

Hotel Operator Benefits From Ease of Vendor Management and 24/7 Managed Services

TULSA, Okla., Dec. 13, 2010 -- XETA Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:XETA), a national provider of converged communications solutions for the enterprise marketplace, today announced that the Wingate by Wyndham™ Hotel – Frisco, a new-construction hotel in Frisco, Texas, and part of Wyndham™ Hotels and Resorts, has selected XETA's bundled suite of hospitality communications solutions. The suite includes wired and wireless High Speed Internet Access, an advanced PBX system and low-voltage cabling to provide advanced voice and data services for hotel guests and staff. In addition to its bundled offering, XETA will provide 24/7 managed services for the network.

"As the lodging and hospitality industry continues its recovery, facilities need to look at ways to offer necessary amenities while controlling costs," said Brian DePalma, Vice President of operations for DePalma Hotel Corporation, the management company of the Wingate by Wyndham™ Frisco. "From an operations standpoint, we chose XETA's bundled HSIA, PBX and cable offering because it allows us to have one point of contact for our communications systems, be more efficient in managing our vendor relationships and provides price points that are more competitive than contracting these projects separately. This translates into a reduced total cost of construction that ultimately can be passed on to our guests."

XETA worked directly with Wingate by Wyndham™ Frisco on the overall network design, focusing on efficiency of the network and following the high standards provided by the hotel. XETA also designed the low-voltage cabling system and will be responsible for cable installation prior to the hotel's January 2011 opening.

"One of the key advantages to our bundled offerings is the ease of management we provide to our customers. We're able to work directly with our clients on complete design and implementation of our solutions and then provide 24/7 network support and guest help desk services," said Mark Holzberg, managing director of XETA's hospitality division. "We look forward to providing Wingate by Wyndham™ Frisco with the excellent products and services for which we are known."

XETA's line of hosted and on-premise hospitality offerings includes a complete suite of data, voice, network and support services. For more information on XETA's complete line of network and communications solutions, visit
