New Barns Caravan Park

WiFi

Reliable WiFi & TV for all

The outstanding natural environment has long attracted visitors to New Barns, a caravan park near Arnside, Cumbria, nestled in abundant woodland overlooking an estuary.

Yet it was just this environment that caused the park owners many technical challenges in providing park members satisfactory TV reception and WiFi connectivity.

Some holiday homeowners had installed their own TV reception equipment, resulting in safety concerns around the site. TRIAX IRS equipment standardised TV reception site-wide, while removing the self-installed equipment resolved the safety issues and improved park aesthetics.

Today’s park members expect good WiFi no longer as a luxury but an essential amenity, and this was not provided by the existing installation.

The TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax) installation provided the reliable WiFi connectivity needed, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Maximum WiFi coverage: dedicated access point in each holiday home
  • Increased saleability of holiday homes due to improved infrastructure

“For the first time in our history we can firmly say we have a reliably fast service that works extremely well for all. The TRIAX equipment is second to none and certainly worth the investment.”

— Robert & Darren Barber
Owners, New Barns Caravan Park

“Good and stable… fast and reliable.”

“Without doubt far superior… we are delighted with the improvements afforded by the TRIAX solution.”

“The new high-speed internet is excellent. We currently have our TV and 4 iPads connected at any one time; the system does not lag or affect our usage.”

— A selection of quotes from satisfied holiday homeowners

New Barns Caravan Park, family run since the 1940s, is located just outside the village of Arnside, Cumbria, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

IP over coax: 5 common concerns and how to overcome them

IP Over Coax

5 common concerns and how to overcome them

Knud Madsen

Group Product Manager


Dear IT Partner,

You’re confident building IP networks, but building them over coax? We understand – you might have some doubts.

In fact, it’s much easier than you’d think. While the cables may differ, the performance, reliability, setup and terminology is just the same as you’re used to.

So, we’ve listed a few of the common concerns with IP over Coax that IT professionals have, and offer our answers below.

1. A professional IP network should be made with CAT cables and switches

That’s how it traditionally was, until a reliable, high speed and future-ready solution was developed for IP over Coax. TRIAX’s G.hn technology meets all the demands of a modern IP network, and realising an IP network with TRIAX EoC is faster, more environmentally friendly and cost effective.

2. Only newer coax installations are capable of delivering a decent IP connection

TRIAX G.hn technology not only offers a reliable gigaspeed IP connection, but the technology is so robust, it’s easy to install even on 50-year-old coax installations.

3. It’s complicated and requires a lot of coax-skills to install a TRIAX EoC solution

Essentially, the TRIAX EoC solution works as a typical Layer 2 IP Switch, and installs in a similar way. The system is developed as an IT product. It has the look and feel of an IT product, and the technical terms are the same as you’re used to. It just uses a coax cable as the ‘connection media’.

4. But… on coax networks TV signals are also transmitted. What about these – and how to cope with this?

In a TRIAX EoC solution, both TV services and gigaspeed IP services co-exist without any problem. You don’t have to worry – the system secures a perfect split and co-existence. The coax network is actually very powerful: offering gigaspeed IP connection and several hundred TV channels is no problem.

5. Do I have to make a complicated site survey, and how do I make sure that no unforeseen expenses arise if I’m not a coax specialist?

A site survey prior to installation is always recommended. With the special TRIAX Network Analyser Tool, this part is made easy – even if you don’t have too much experience with coax networks. This will also help you reveal any issues in the coax network and thus avoid unexpected additions to your offer to the end customer.

First-class TV and WiFi for clinic patients

Kliniken Schmieder

First-class TV reception and full WiFi coverage for patients of Kliniken Schmieder

To make patients’ stays as pleasant as possible, the management of Kliniken Schmieder decided to equip all their sites with a reliable and future-proof satellite TV and WiFi solution.

“Thanks to the good cooperation with TRIAX partner ‘the-company.de’ and the TRIAX team, the installation could be implemented quickly and smoothly. The feedback from our patients on the extended services is extremely positive.”

— Edgar Mattes
Head of IT, Kliniken Schmieder

Kliniken Schmieder clinics in Baden-Württemberg
Since 1950, Kliniken Schmieder has been a renowned quality leader of neurological rehabilitation in Germany. Every year, around 2,200 employees at six locations in Baden-Württemberg treat around 14,000 neurological patients of all severity.

Successful evaluation of the first demo installations

After a detailed examination of the underlying conditions at the Konstanz and Gailingen clinics on Lake Constance, an initial plan for a demo installation of a WiFi solution based on the coaxial infrastructure (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) was designed together with TRIAX partner ‘the-company.de’ and implemented in March 2021.

Together with the IT department and facility management, the technical concept for comprehensive patient WiFi was established after the successful evaluation phase and extended with an In Touch TV Portal solution. With the In Touch solution, it is possible to offer private patients a more extensive TV offer including Sky channels, and to implement in-house channels.

State-of-the-art headend technology for the Konstanz and Gailingen clinics

For each location, a TDcH compact headend is used to convert the free-to-air satellite transmissions into DVB-C. In addition, there was a TDX headend for the subscribed Sky channels as well as Kliniken Schmieder’s in-house and information channels. For this purpose, DS Players were connected via two HDMI input modules.

The administration and control of the information channels is carried out via the In Touch management tool. The DVB-C output signals of both headends are fed into the networks of the respective locations.

Comfortable guest and patient network for different needs

For the patient and guest WiFi, EoC Coax WiFi End Points and an EoC MediaConverter were connected to the coaxial network in each room. This means that a comprehensive WiFi signal can now be provided, along with IPTV in private rooms. As a result, around 200 rooms at each of the locations in Konstanz and Gailingen can now be supplied with WiFi signals. The control and management of the End Points and MediaConverters, as well as the IP signal feed into the coaxial network, is carried out via EoC Controllers which were installed in server rooms at the two sites. The End Points and MediaConverters in private rooms were assigned to a separate configuration group in order to provide an extended channel list (including Sky).

With In Touch Local Access from TRIAX, the bandwidths for the various user groups can be managed in such a way that sufficient bandwidth is available to all users equally.

All systems can be managed centrally from headquarters in Allensbach, and monitored and managed remotely by TRIAX Support in Berlin.

Up-to-the-minute information over digital signage

Special activities and events inside and outside the clinic, important information for patients and guests or the current menu – all this can be displayed in the right place at the right time via centrally controlled digital signs. Patients can be directed to the right therapy location via digital info boards.

Kliniken Schmieder were so satisfied with the implementation and the associated improvements to TV reception and WiFi services, that the solutions will now be deployed at two further sites at Heidelberg and Allensbach.

Excellent WiFi for an idyllic holiday retreat

Æblehaven Resort

Excellent WiFi for an idyllic holiday retreat

Æblehaven holiday park, situated a stone’s throw from the northern beaches of the Danish island of Bornholm, had everything a guest could wish for – except internet access.

To satisfy soaring demand for WiFi, and to provide the opportunity for guests to cast streaming services to in-room TVs, a fast, modern hospitality WiFi solution was needed.

Wishing to avoid a costly and disruptive installation, the resort owners were also on the lookout for a solution that would make use of the existing park communications infrastructure.

TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) was chosen to meet these criteria. It uses the TV cables already in place, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Reliable WiFi network for 70 holiday homes

“The EoC system is so easy to install. We’ve introduced a brand new WiFi network to reach 70 holiday homes, simply by using the existing TV cables.”

— Johann Karlsen
Owner, Service Centret Bornholm

Æblehaven Feriecenter, Bornholm
Family-oriented holiday homes idyllically situated in a former apple orchard in northern Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.

A total of 70 holiday homes for 4-6 people are on offer at Æblehaven.

IPTV & WiFi in three Spanish hospitals

WiFi

Samsung and TRIAX solution keeps patients entertained and connected

Hospitals and patients benefit from IPTV and WiFi, with no new cables needed

Beyond outstanding healthcare, premium entertainment and WiFi connectivity are essential components of a private hospital’s offer to patients and guests.

To provide this, legacy technology often needs to be replaced, but without impacting the day-to-day operation of the hospital or its critical services.

Javier Alonso of Diconplaweb S.L. worked with Samsung Display Solutions and TRIAX Spain to carry out major refurbishments of the patient entertainment systems – without drills, hammers or any wards out of service.

  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • IPTV & WiFi over coax cables already in place
  • No disturbance to hospital staff or patients
  • Does not interfere with critical hospital networks
  • Outstanding patient satisfaction

“The TRIAX solution enables Samsung Smart Hospitality TVs to deliver interactivity and smart functions directly to patients, without the necessity of rewiring buildings and switching rooms off for refurbishment. That’s especially needed now during the COVID-19 pandemic, when all available beds are so valuable.”

—Piotr Lipiec
EU BDM Samsung HTV

Complete IPTV and WiFi system

Smart Hospitality Displays from Samsung Display Solutions provide rich interactive entertainment, also functioning as a private Access Point for patient and guest WiFi access.

They connect to a gigabit IP network provided by TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax).

“The use of existing coaxial cables for the implementation of the system is a great advantage. Execution times and costs are considerably reduced.”
Javier Alonso, Managing Director, Diconplaweb S.L. (Installer)

A TRIAX EoC Controller sends outstanding, reliable connectivity around the hospitals’ existing coax cable network.

A TRIAX EoC MediaConverter is discreetly installed on the back of each Samsung Hospitality TV. It takes the IP signals in via coax, and provides the necessary LAN connection to the TV.

All three hospitals have been delighted with the high speed and low costs of the unobtrusive installation, which has been achieved without having to close any rooms or wards.

The hospitals can then monetise value-added IPTV and WiFi services by offering access on demand.

Combined, the technology provides all a system integrator needs to offer outstanding entertainment and reliable connectivity to the health care sector.

  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • IPTV & WiFi over coax cables already in place
  • No disturbance to hospital staff or patients
  • Does not interfere with critical hospital networks
  • Outstanding patient satisfaction

abba Suites Bilbao

WiFi

WiFi & TV over the same cables

When Abba Hotels Group were planning to install both TV and Ethernet cables around their new 4-star apartment complex in Bilbao, TRIAX stepped in with EoC (Ethernet over Coax), enabling both TV and WiFi networks to run over the same cables.

Four months after the opening of the apartments, Abba Group reports that customers have shown great satisfaction with the WiFi and no complaints have been recorded.

“The result of the installation is very good, the WiFi signal is remarkable and the casting system is working well.”

— Damian Melero
Chief Information Officer, Abba Hotels Group

The challenge

Abba Hotels Group was expanding into Bilbao with 35 newly built 4-star holiday apartments. These had to be equipped with telecommunications services.

Their plans had been to make two separate installations: one with coax cable for TV, and another with copper cable (CAT 6) or optical fibre for the Internet.

The solution

TRIAX Spain presented the EoC solution to Abba’s IT Director Damian Melero, demonstrating the versatility of the product and the innovative G.hn Wave 2 technology that steers the network.

The possibility of combining the Internet service and the TV network, as well as being a totally passive system, attracted the interest of Mr Melero, who requested a live demonstration of the system.

“The installation of the End Points with WiFi has been very easy, each one takes only 15 minutes.”
Damian Melero, Chief Information Officer, Abba Hotels Group

The results

After the demonstration, the IT team of Abba Group were able to verify the system’s excellent characteristics, namely its high bandwidth, low latency, and reliable performance.

The demo concluded with Mr Melero saying, “it seems you have the solution for my request – let’s do it with real guests…”

Only one coax cable network was needed to be installed around abba Suites Bilbao, instantly reducing costs and environmental impact.

A TRIAX headend was installed to handle the TV distribution, and a single EoC Controller steered a network of 35 End Points.

These provided reliable WiFi to each apartment, which could then be equipped with casting devices, a service that is proving highly popular with guests.

Sudersand Resort

WiFi

Better WiFi for holiday cottages

While outdoor WiFi access points across Sudersand Resort delivered a reliable service, the solid construction of the resort’s cottages prevented signals from reaching guests inside their accommodation.

To satisfy increasing demand for quality WiFi indoors, Sudersand needed a solution that could be installed with as little disruption as possible in time for the new holiday season.

TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) uses the TV cables already in place, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Maximum WiFi coverage: dedicated access point in each holiday cottage

“TRIAX EoC’s convenience and high performance make it an outstanding solution for campsites and holiday resorts.”

Chalet des Neiges apartments

WiFi

Freedom to ski, freedom to surf

Les Arcs is a large ski resort in the French Alps divided into several areas. The highest, Les Arcs 2000, is home to La Cime des Arcs apartment hotel, one of Chalet des Neiges’ many tourist residences. With outstanding pistes and ski lifts climbing up to 3226m, Les Arcs is an ideal resort for enjoying winter sports as a couple, with friends, or as a family.

Faced with ongoing technological issues with the Wi-Fi around the tourist residence, and beginning to lose guests as a result, Chalet des Neiges turned to TRIAX and their innovative Ethernet over Coax + WiFi hospitality solution:

  • Fast and reliable Wi-Fi coverage with 80 End Points
  • 1 Gbps network on existing coax cables
  • Quick installation, no disruption and minimal cost
  • Full coverage: no more Wi-Fi blackspots
  • More satisfied guests and an increase in reservations

Chalet des Neiges tourist residences
Chalet des Neiges consists of five 4-star and two 5-star residences established in different ski resorts: Val Thorens (3 Vallées ski area), Oz en Oisans (Alpes d’Huez) and Arc 2000 (Paradiski). The residences are carefully maintained and an annual work programme is established to offer high quality apartments for some out of season stays and holidays every year.
www.chaletdesneiges.com

“We now have TRIAX’s EoC solution installed in ‘La Cime des Arcs’ but also in 4 other residences situated in Arcs 2000 and Val Thorens, and our guests are happy. TRIAX and the installers work as a team and provide excellent customer service — it’s their main strength.”

—Kevin Schoenauer, Operations Manager, Chalet des Neiges

Responding to customer needs

As a result of regular customer complaints about the service, the Chalet des Neiges tourist residence had to quickly resolve its Wi-Fi issues.

“TRIAX’s solution is a real competitive advantage for hotels. We only needed a day and half to equip 80 rooms with 3 technicians and install the EoC network solution providing a 1 Gbps IP bandwidth”
Olivier Favre Chairman, Courchevel Telecom

The TRIAX solution: speed quality, reliability

TRIAX’s Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution was installed using the existing coax network, instantly upgrading the speed and stability of the WiFi, and eliminating negative feedback from guests. The 80 rooms were equipped by three technicians in just one day, without any disruption for the guests or to the residence.

  • Network signal received by the TRIAX EoC Controller (2x EoC 64 + Wi-Fi controller)
  • The Controller transmits the IP network through the existing coax cables
  • The 80 TRIAX End Points, installed in every apartment, transmit the Wi-Fi and the TV signal.

Rainforest Retreat

WiFi

Luxurious WiFi for a luxury retreat

Set in an abundance of natural splendour, guests at Rainforest Retreat are offered an idyllic combination of relaxation and adventure. They still needed good Wi-Fi however, and were demanding better.

The solution – TRIAX’s Ethernet over Coax (EoC), using G.hn Wave 2 technology – a New Zealand first. Already trusted as Rainforest’s reliable TV distribution partner, TRIAX used the same MATV infrastructure around the site for a revolutionary Wi-Fi upgrade, resulting in:

  • Fast, full interior & exterior Wi-Fi coverage
  • Reduced costs by using existing coax cables
  • Quick, disruption-free installation
  • Future-proofed for upcoming ISP fibre upgrade

Rainforest Retreat
Rainforest Retreat is situated at the feet of the Southern Alps on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, offering premium Tree House, Tree Lodge, Tree Huts and Park Motel accommodation, and a friendly and fun backpackers and holiday camp. www.rainforest.nz

Customer needs

Rainforest Retreat is nestled amongst 6 acres of native bush at the feet of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, offering a combination of luxury, motel and backpacker accommodation.

The existing Wi-Fi setup was not fit for purpose: with only outdoor access points, coverage did not reach much of the guest accommodation’s interior areas.

A reliable, cost-effective solution was needed that did not affect the availability of guest accommodation.

“TRIAX has transformed the Wi-Fi offering here at Rainforest. Guests are happier, and we’ve been delighted with the minimal fuss and speed of installation.”

—Mark Nicholson
Developments Manager, Rainforest Retreat

The TRIAX solution: speed, quality, reliability

Having previously installed a TDX headend to handle Rainforest’s TV distribution, TRIAX knew the existing coax infrastructure could surpass requirements, without the costs or environmental disruption involved in installing new network cabling.

2 EoC Controllers were installed – one in reception and one at a junction point serving the tree huts – servicing a total of 46 EoC End Points.

The sleek End Points are installed out of sight in all buildings, redistributing TV signals where needed. One End Point in the amenities block also supplies Ethernet for the pre-existing exterior access points.

With gigabit networking both up- and downstream, the G.hn technology employed by TRIAX is much faster than comparative DOCSIS solutions, with 20x lower latency and no TV retuning required.

Network speeds are a shared 2 Gbps across all 46 End Points and 2 controllers, far exceeding the existing internet connection speed to the property and perfectly primed for the future.

Results

  • Site-wide interior & exterior Wi-Fi coverage
  • EoC network is 20x faster than current internet connection – therefore, ready for future fibre rollout in the region
  • End Points installed between check-out and check-in at each property – no guest disruption or lost revenue
  • Installation complete in 4 days
  • End-to-end TRIAX hardware

Hotel Inntel Rotterdam

Inntel Hotel Rotterdam

WiFi

Reliable Wi-Fi in record time

Inntel Hotels urgently needed a faster, more reliable Wi-Fi service to overcome regular customer complaints and provide for an upcoming conference.

As a busy city centre hotel, they needed disruption to be kept to a minimum. No drilling, no new cabling, and no rooms out of service were all essential requirements.

TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + WiFi was installed using the existing coax network, instantly improving Wi-Fi speed and stability, and eliminating customer complaints. The entire project was complete in just four days, with no disruption to hotel or guests.

  • Fast, reliable Wi-Fi coverage with 117 End Points
  • 1 Gbps network on existing coax cables
  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • Future-proofed for upcoming IPTV in-room rollout

www.inntelhotelsrotterdamcentre.nl 

“We used to get ten complaints a day about our Wi-Fi. Since the TRIAX solution was installed, we’ve had none.”

—Mark Naber
General Manager, Inntel Hotels Rotterdam Centre

Customer needs

Inntel Hotels knew it had to resolve its Wi-Fi problems, fast. Regular complaints were coming in from guests about the service, and a conference with 300 guests was looming.

The catch – a busy city centre hotel can’t afford noisy and disruptive installations, so tearing out the existing coax cables for new Ethernet cables was simply not an option.

The TRIAX solution: Speed, Quality, Reliability

“For networking over coax solutions, TRIAX EoC with G.hn Wave 2 was the convincing choice. It’s easier to configure, faster, and more reliable than similar DOCSIS-based solutions”
Robin Affolter, General Manager, IRS Hospitality

TRIAX Ethernet over Coax steers network traffic over the existing coax cables, to access points that distribute both professional Wi-Fi and the TV signals to guest rooms.

The TRIAX advantage was its use of G.hn Wave 2 technology, chosen over DOCSIS-based alternatives due to its faster 1 Gbps throughput, improved reliability, and increased speed & ease of installation.

Within four days, IRS Hospitality Group, an established OTRUM partner, executed the site survey, set up 3 EoC Controllers and installed End Points in each of the 117 hotel rooms. Just ten minutes were needed in each room and TVs did not need retuning.

Since the successful installation, it is planned to roll out TRIAX EoC in Inntel’s two neighbouring Rotterdam hotels.
