InnSpire, Positron Access Solutions partner for connectivity

Hotel tech company InnSpire has partnered with Positron Access Solutions, a provider of carrier-grade telecommunications systems for the hospitality sector and other markets, to provide high-speed connectivity to hotels. Positron’s advanced converged Gigabit Ethernet solution aims to increase both the bandwidth and the distance at which it can be delivered to guestrooms, even within remote campus-style properties, over the existing legacy coaxial cabling infrastructure or copper pairs. This would facilitate the repurposing of the existing facilities.

The new partnership between InnSpire and Positron Access provides hoteliers with the connectivity needed to support InnSpire’s guestroom IPTV solutions and other hotel applications, as well as reliable guest high-speed Wi-Fi and internet-based services.

Positron’s Access Multiplexer technology delivers gigabit bandwidth over the existing coaxial infrastructure directly to the back of the TV in each guestroom with no amplifiers. A single connection at this optimal location makes it possible for hoteliers to optimize the functionality of InnSpire’s guestroom entertainment solutions and to provide fast internet and other guest services. The combined InnSpire/Positron solution delivers high internet speeds at a fraction of the time and cost of a fiber retrofit with no construction disruption or downtime to the hotel or guestrooms during installation.

“Many of our customers’ properties are housed in legacy buildings that need to upgrade their infrastructure to enhance internet access, and Positron is the ideal solution for providing that foundation of scalable and reliable connectivity – both quickly and efficiently,” Martin Chevalley, InnSpire CEO, said in a statement.

InnSpire’s digital solutions work collaboratively to allow for guest control over their entire travel experience, from guestroom access to temperature and lighting. The company’s Guest Journey App, its InnCable and InnSmart in-room TV solutions, iOT-based room controls and the “F&B Anywhere” solution all work in concert via the property’s Wi-Fi network to provide travelers and hotel operators with personalized command over the guest experience.

“Our GAM system allows a seamless transition to IPTV without disruption, providing seamless connectivity to InnSpire customers at a fraction of the cost of rewiring,” said Pierre Trudeau, president of Positron.
