citzenM is an established hotel chain with a modern outlookand is designed around smart mobile citizens. Where luxury and budget sleep together in one big bed, citizenM is driven by the desire to create affordable luxury for today’s international traveller.
After successfully launching citizenM Amsterdam Airport and citizenM Amsterdam city, the hotel group officially opened the doors to its first property outside Amsterdam in the very heart of Glasgow's city centre.
citizenM was looking for a solutions provider with expertise in the areas of both structured cabling and wireless technology to ensure its flagship UK hotel’s communication infrastructure was designed, implemented and most importantly managed effectively.
The turn key solution designed, installed and maintained for citizenM leverages Boston Networks unrivalled expertise in both intelligent building and wireless system solutions. Providing so much more than a traditional network the cutting edge solution encompasses:
- Structured cabling throughout the building to supply hotel facilities and bedroom services
- Operation of critical hotel IP switching & routing
- PA system to public areas
- Internal and external IP CCTV solution for 24/7 video surveillance
- Access control to secure and manage: lifts, fire exits, access to the building
The cabling infrastructure allows all the hotel’s critical services to operate seamlessly and simultaneously via the same network.
Additionally, the intelligent infrastructure allows the network to directly communicate with the entertainment controllers in each room; offering connectivity to the hotel’s centralised music streaming and IPTV system.
Furthermore, through the installation of a pro-active, software based IP CCTV solution the Hotel benefits from complete coverage of all the key internal and external areas. Providing rich, detailed footage with intelligent analytics, the cutting-edge system delivers unrivalled levels of security and peace of mind to the hotel staff and guests alike. What’s more, the IP CCTV solution alone will deliver an attractive ROI in less than 1 year.
“citizen M found in Boston Networks a technically adept and willing partner to undertake and commission, the critical aspects of our intuitive intelligent building systems. They provided a proactive approach throughout the process and continue to assist in the smooth running of the system. We would be delighted to recommend Boston Networks to fulfill similar roles throughout the industry and will have no hesitation in using them, on our future developments in the UK.”
