Alyeska Resort ski area taps Motorola Solutions WLAN to deploy wireless service

Alyeska Resort, a ski area in Alaska, has tapped Motorola Solutions’ Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) to deploy wireless service for guests.

Motorola’s T5 Wi-Fi over VDSL2 system has resulted in 100 percent guest satisfaction with the Wi-Fi service and a dramatic reduction in wireless network management time and cost for hotel staff.

The T5 system allowed the Alyeska Resort to provide guest rooms with wall-to-wall Wi-Fi coverage, with better bandwidth to ensure superior wireless performance. VDSL2 architecture uses existing telephone wiring and is compatible with the existing telephony and data network equipment, allowing for an easy and cost-effective deployment.


The T5 Wi-Fi over VDSL2 solution’s allowed for deployment in the first three floors of the hotel, providing high-speed Wi-Fi service to guests and hotel staff in the pool area, spa, restaurant, retail shops and banquet rooms as well as administrative offices.

Motorola’s rugged AP7161 802.11n outdoor access points were deployed to provide the point-to-point link to the resort maintenance shop and its buildings and grounds department.

The Alyeska Resort is located 30 miles from Anchorage, Alaska, and is a year-round destination featuring a 304-room hotel.

Martin Cassens, director of Information Technology, Alyeska Resort, said: “We can guarantee that all guests will have the bandwidth required for a superior wireless experience, regardless of whether they are in the lobby or in their rooms, how many devices are in use in each room — or how many devices are on the network.”
