McLaren Technologies Completes High Speed Internet Access Project
at the InterContinental Sydney Hotel

SYDNEY, August 9, 2012 – InterContinental Sydney is now one of the city’s most advanced technology ‘hotspots’ for both business and leisure guests following the completion of a High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) project by Asia Pacific’s solution specialists, McLaren Technologies.
With offices in Sydney and Singapore, McLaren Technologies delivers a range of 'best of breed' technology solutions and services to a diverse range of industries, including the hospitality industry.
Commissioned by InterContinental Sydney, McLaren recently oversaw the implementation of a new technology framework to complement and build on the hotel’s existing top end data systems and Nomadix access gateways, which are designed to keep Internet traffic flowing by enabling a fast, seamless extension of a Wi-Fi network.
McLaren Technologies Managing Director Matthew White said the result is a selection of flexible billing options - for both wired and wireless Internet access – to best cater to the needs of InterContinental’s different hotel guests.
“Our team of software developers created a tailored software solution strategy specific to the InterContinental Sydney to suit its particular business and client preferences – both in-room and in public areas,” said Mr. White. “As one of Australia’s leading luxury hotels, the InterContinental Sydney caters to all manner of guests with differing online needs, and our priority was to ensure that the hotel’s Internet billing options truly reflect that diversity while remaining simple and easy to use.”
InterContinental Sydney’s Director of Information Technology Ben Wrigley said McLaren understood and delivered on the hotel’s vision to provide flexibility in regards to connectivity access.
“McLaren’s customised approach to our technology infrastructure has allowed for several new billing options to be presented to guests,” said Mr. Wrigley. “Clients now have the option to log-on as a new guest connecting for the first time, an existing guest either in-room or as part of a hotspot plan, or as part of a group account – ideal for those visiting as part of a larger event or conference. These billing options are complimented by presentations relating to the hotel’s facilities, which can be selected by guests dependent on their individual needs.”
Components installed at the InterContinental Sydney include two Nomadix AG5600 access gateways in High Availability, a Cisco network and two of McLaren’s own home grown solutions – the McLaren Hotspot Manager [HSM] Server and the McLaren HSIA Guest Portal.
HotSpot Manager (HSM) is a McLaren technology that integrates with Nomadix Internet Gateways to enable the straightforward and immediate set up of random and user selected wireless profiles.
An innovator in public access network solutions, Nomadix (a subsidiary of DOCOMO interTouch) provides clever Internet solutions for the hospitality and public access markets. Incorporating over 15 unique areas of functionality, Nomadix products feature a real-time operating system and can successfully deploy a Wi-Fi service offering for customers.
