Following the destruction of its previous network from hurricane Michael, Boardwalk Beach Hotel set out to adopt a replacement. However, as guest expectations for a hotel’s Wi-Fi service capabilities continue to grow, the property identified a vital need to select a network solution that could fully accommodate the increased strain placed on today’s hotel internet networks.
