Nextivity, World Cinema partner to boost cell service in hotels

Nextivity, developer of signal booster Cel-Fi, and tech company World Cinema are partnering to deliver in-building cellular connectivity to properties throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

WCI now offers Nextivity’s Cel-Fi products through ImpruviX, its suite of wireless connectivity solutions for hotels and other residences. The company now serves more than 4,200 hotels.

In October 2020, WCI launched ImpruviX to deliver and support wireless connectivity for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer customers. ImpruviX products are designed for lowest total cost of ownership and are sensitive to capital value. Nextivity’s Cel-Fi products allow WCI to deliver customized solutions that align with customers’ in-building cellular connectivity needs and budget constraints.

Nextivity’s Cel-Fi products help prevent dropped calls, poor voice quality and low data caused by a weak cellular signal. Cel-Fi products are self-configuring, carrier-approved and network safe. Cel-Fi is authorized for use by 200 carriers around the world.   
“We believe that reliable connectivity will continue to be vital in optimizing the value of any property where guests visit or residents live. In-building cellular coverage, in particular, will increasingly play an important role in acquiring and retaining high occupancy rates in all communities and destination properties,” said Robert Grosz, EVP and chief commercial officer at WCI. “Our partnership with Nextivity ensures that ImpruviX solutions feature the most advanced technology for cellular coverage and enables us to deliver future-proof solutions that cost-effectively meet our customers’ evolving wireless connectivity needs.”
“The world is changing and cellular app-based solutions have begun to dominate in new ways, whether talking touchless e-pay solutions or new security-based applications,” said Nextivity CEO Werner Sievers. “This partnership will extend the reach of Cel-Fi products and create new opportunities for us to work together to solve the cellular coverage challenges faced by many industries ... The Cel-Fi Quatra line offers the flexibility and connectivity these industries are looking for within their current budget parameters.”
