With acclaimed restaurants and bars, state-of-the-art spas, intelligent technology and advanced business facilities, the Montcalm experience epitomises next generation London luxury.
With 250 rooms at their Finsbury Square location, The Montcalm Luxury Hotels were looking to improve their technology and Connectivity throughout the building.
The Montcalm Luxury Hotels are recognised as technology leaders within the industry, and their Network Connection.
With changing demands, both within the industry and guest expectations, a reliable, superfast Internet Connection and Network were essential for The Royal London House by Montcalm Finsbury Square London City. They needed to be sure that the new service would withstand high usage peaks at events, alongside that of guests and employees. Having a service that could scale and be flexible was a key driver for the project.
After rigorous assessment of the market, The Montcalm Luxury Hotels selected Exponential-e as their preferred supplier. In July 2014 they signed and the implementation of the service began.
Using its wholly owned Network, Exponential-e is delivering a Wide Area Network (WAN) that connects all 18 sites in The Montcalm Hotel Luxury Hotels. The Royal London House by Montcalm Finsbury Square London site has 10 Gig Network capacity, which ensures the hotel has the agility to quickly share information and can respond to customer demands. In line with this, the WAN will be combined with High Bandwidth Internet that is delivered using a single piece of Fibre to offer clients a scalable Internet connection. Being able to provide Bandwidth to different areas of the hotel from a supplier they trust, was a high priority for Montcalm. The high-capacity, low latency Bandwidth will ensure that the flagship hotel has the flexibility to cope with peaks in Network usage to meet the needs of its guests, events and business processes.
In an industry that competes on exceeding expectations, delivering a powerful Internet Connection is key to meeting the demands of its hyper-connected guests. The scalable infrastructure will allow The Montcalm Luxury Hotels to portion off a dedicated section of its Bandwidth for operations. In addition, since all services sit on the clean side of the Firewall, the hotel can be reassured that it is offering customers a Secure Network that is compliant with PCI DSS regulations and safely delivers customer data.
Upon implementation, The Royal London House by Montcalm Finsbury Square became the first in the UK to boast 10Gig Capacity, both up and down. "We now have Connectivity that is on a par with large media organisations or broadcasters, which is unheard of in the UK" explained a spokesperson at The Montcalm London Marble Arch. "Exponential-e provides us with visibility into the level of Internet traffic running over our Network so that we have the flexibility to scale Bandwidth up or down to reflect the facilities that our guests are using and the number of applications running over our Network. For example, when we have conferences, video calls and live demos happening simultaneously, then Bandwidth can be instantly scaled to meet demand whilst ensuring that all hotel guests benefit from a rich user experience"
With 24/7 x 365 support provided by Exponential-e, alongside a dedicated sales team, the implementation of the service was managed by Exponential-e from beginning to end. The Montcalm Luxury Hotels are now looking to implement the Exponential-e Network and infrastructure across six more hotels, including their newly launched Shoreditch property.
