Ecessa Gives Hotel Operators What Their Guests Demand – Reliable Wi-Fi – With Newly Upgraded PowerLink™ Technology

Ecessa delivers network failover, load balancing, security and SD-WAN for seamless guest Internet and hotel operations.

New Orleans, LA – June 21, 2016 – Today at the HITEC Conference & Expo, booth #2059, Ecessa Corporation, a leader in Wide Area Network (WAN) technology development, introduced its newly upgraded PowerLink™, an enhanced WAN link controller that now includes basic firewall security and VPN capabilities.

Designed for hotels, restaurants and other businesses that rely on constant connectivity to Internet or cloud-based applications, PowerLink combines up to 25 ISP links of any type (broadband, cable, DSL, fiber, wireless) with combined throughput of up to 20 Gbps, with link load balancing and automatic failover to ensure continuous connection to the Internet.

Guests Demand Reliable Internet

A recent amenities survey performed by shows that Wi-Fi access can make or break a guest’s satisfaction with his or her stay. The study found that, of 10 in-room amenities available, patrons rank Internet and free Wi-Fi access as the most important. Furthermore, as far as overall hotel property amenities, Wi-Fi still ranked within the top three most sought after features.

“Hotels, resorts and other businesses in the hospitality sector are keenly aware that always-on guest Wi-Fi is a must-have amenity. That drives enormous bandwidth demand. At the same time, their operations have been adopting cloud applications and consuming bandwidth at exponential rates. They need an easy and affordable way to add bandwidth and balance connections, a simple product to ensure their critical applications perform well and are always available,” said the President and Chief Operations Officer at Ecessa. “The enhanced PowerLink is purpose built to do that.”

A unique advantage of Ecessa solutions is that they scale with organizational growth. PowerLink can serve smaller operations with one property connected to the Internet. The same platform will support multinational operations with hundreds of locations using today’s most advanced networking technology, SD-WAN.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants uses Ecessa technology throughout its luxury properties. According to Kimpton’s National Property Engineer, Kimpton doesn’t have to compromise between guest Internet experience and staff productivity. “We’re definitely seeing the value in what we purchased the Ecessa units for, with improvements to guest Internet, operations VPN and automatic failover.”
