Network Monitoring for Hotels

April 12th, 2011

If a business has a wifi connection, then it needs some type of network monitoring system. When connections are lost or any other problem happens, managers need to be notified as soon as possible. The sooner the problem is taken care of the sooner you can get back to running your business and increasing profits.

Hotel Network Monitoring


Millions, or perhaps even billions of people travel every year. These travelers, seeking the comforts of home, may be traveling to do business or just on simple family vacations. Either way, they are seeking hotels with some type of WiFi Internet connection. Checking to see if a hotel provides Internet service, paid or free, has become a common practice for online bookers.

After going through all of the trouble to find a wonderful hotel and then just when you are about to settle down for the night with a cup of coffee and do some Internet surfing your connection fails. Now we have a very angry guest on our hands demanding the Internet be fixed immediately or discount their room; as they reach into their pocket and begin to pull out their cell phone and tweet to their 1 million followers on the service they have received at your hotel.

From a scenario as this, we can quickly see the importance of having a network monitoring system for hotels. Managers have to be informed and ready to respond to network problems as they happen in order to compete in such a competitive market as the hotel industry.
