Chalet des Neiges apartments

TRIAX

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.

“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

TRIAX

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

Hilton Garden Inn, Budapest

TRIAX

Upgraded hotel, upgraded TV distribution

When Hilton Garden Inn underwent a major refurbishment programme in 2019, it wasn’t just the decor that needed significant improvements.

A major upgrade to the TV distribution was required, to meet the entertainment demands of the hotel’s many international guests.

Two TRIAX headends were combined to deliver the full array of international channels requested by hotel management, supplied by three TRIAX satellite dishes on the roof and distributed around the hotel’s coax cable network.

Engineers from TRIAX partner Pentolt Kft. designed a twin headend setup, installed in a rack to make the best use of the limited space in the hotel facilities room.

“Together with TRIAX we conceived a solution specifically for Hilton’s needs. It was implemented quickly and without any hassle,” said Pentolt’s project manager of the installation.

“TRIAX is our preferred partner for all our TV distribution needs. Their reliable products are well suited to the demands of hotels like Hilton Garden Inn.”

—Pentolt Kft., TRIAX Installation partner

Technical details

The fully redundant installation consists of:

  • 2 TDX Headends with QAM & PAL output
  • 3 TRIAX dishes
  • 3 Optical LNBs
  • TRIAX TOU Optical Receiver
  • TRIAX Antenna
  • TRIAX TMS Multiswitch

Hotel Inntel Rotterdam

Inntel Hotel Rotterdam

TRIAX

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

Hotel Inntel Rotterdam

Inntel Hotels Rotterdam Centre
Inntel Hotels is a modern, friendly and successful hotel group with hotels in five Dutch cities. The hotels are known for their warm and professional charisma with a focus on quality, experience and atmosphere.
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.

Feldberger Hof

Familotel Feldberger Hof

TRIAX

Powerful, reliable guest WiFi

On the lookout for a WiFi solution, Feldberger Hof once again turned to TRIAX, after their successful TV headend installation.

TRIAX Ethernet over Coax was installed over a short period using the existing coaxial infrastructure, connecting 40 apartments.

Time- and cost-saving installation

Connection to the existing ticket system, which manages bandwidth and premium access

Interference-free internet and TV signals via one cable

Full WiFi coverage wherever needed

Maximum up- and download rate of 1 Gbps – sufficient bandwidth for internet, streaming and gaming

G.hn technology ensures that TVs do not need to be retuned

High-performance WiFi for the winter season

Familotel Feldberger Hof is situated at 1,300m, opening directly onto Feldberg’s ski slopes.

It offers relaxing, family-oriented holidays in summer and winter. Due to its proximity to France and Switzerland, the hotel is also very popular with guests from neighbouring countries.

In 2015, Feldberger Hof invested in TV signal distribution, deciding on a TRIAX solution with two TDX headends and equipping each room with state-of-the-art Panasonic TVs.

This enabled the hotel to offer a much more extensive TV package for children and adults from Germany and abroad.

Feldberger Hof

Situated at 1,300m altitude on the slopes of the Black Forest’s tallest mountain, Feldberger Hof is an all-inclusive resort destination for all the family.
www.feldberger-hof.de

“The reliability of the TRIAX headends already installed in 2015 made the decision easier – we’re again relying on a TRIAX solution, this time so our WiFi meets the most modern requirements.”

Thomas Banhardt, Owner, Feldberger Hof

— Thomas Banhardt
Owner, Feldberger Hof

Demands are growing, and every hotel today has to offer high-performance WiFi as standard. In 2018, Feldberger Hof faced the challenge of improving the internet service in their adjoining apartment building.

The apartments can be booked on a weekly basis, but can also be rented out for longer periods or are owned by the guests. Long-term residents also had to be included in the new solution.

Together with TRIAX and its long-standing partner for electrical installations, the Ethernet over Coax solution was installed and fully operational from the beginning of December – in time for the winter season.

The installation took place during the hotel’s 2-week renovation phase. A total of 40 endpoints were installed in the apartment building, and the main unit is the EoC controller for up to 64 endpoints.

Feldberger Hof’s solution is consequently very flexible, permitting a quick and easy retrofit of additional apartments.

The competent advice and cooperation during the planning and implementation phase from the previous project was not the only reason Feldberger Hof decided on a TRIAX solution.

A quick, cost-effective implementation as well as a perfect alignment with the hotel’s needs were the decisive criteria for the follow-up project with TRIAX.

Private dwelling, Sweden

TRIAX

The best of both worlds

A homeowner in Uppsala County, Sweden, had a number of networking problems at his remote countryside estate.

His WiFi around the home, and its outlying buildings, was poor. It did not reach all the areas he wanted.

Also unreliable was the mobile reception at the property.

Finally, as is common in Sweden, the IP network would not run on the same LAN as his IPTV service, resulting in a mass of unsightly routers and cables around the buildings.

To resolve the issues, in stepped TRIAX with its Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution.

A quick and painless installation has transformed the networking, satisfying the needs of the discerning private homeowner, and delivering a solution that would benefit B+Bs, hostels, farmsteads or similar guest properties:

  • Fast, reliable WiFi covering all areas of the property
  • IP and IPTV network combined on existing coax network – no need for new cables
  • Improved interior aesthetics due to fewer routers, fewer cables and discreet TRIAX equipment
  • Reliable WiFi calling resolves mobile reception issues

All-in-one reliability

“The TRIAX solution was just what I was looking for. It provides all the connectivity I needed over one network, while doing away with the mass of cables and routers I used to have.”

— TRIAX Customer

Technical Details

  • TRIAX EoC + WiFi controller distributes IP and IPTV around the coax cable network at up to 1 Gbps using G.hn wave 2 technology
  • Seven TRIAX end points installed around the estate, transmitting WiFi and the TV signal
  • WiFi speed measured at 413 Mbps

Before: a tangle of equipment for the various home networks.

After: a TRIAX EoC + WiFi controller sits discreetly in a service cupboard, while the 7 WiFi end points around the property are installed out of sight.

Installation map

A TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + WiFi controller is situated in the main house, steering all network traffic around a pre-existing coaxial cable network.

Seven WiFi end points are installed in the building and around the estate, distributing WiFi and IPTV signals.

The network setup in this private dwelling would resemble any similar properties offering guest accommodation, who would benefit from the outstanding reliability, rapid installation and easy setup of TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + WiFi.

Agape Aparthotel

TRIAX

No more WiFi nightmares

To maximise guests’ comfort at Agape Aparthotels in Budapest, a range of amenities is offered in order to truly deliver a home from home experience.

One amenity above all is of critical importance – free WiFi.

With an existing service that was difficult to manage and the cause of some guest dissatisfaction, Agape turned to TRIAX to overhaul its current setup and install the Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution.

After a rapid and disruption-free installation, the result is a fully managed network over coax cables, with reliable WiFi coverage in every apartment.

Agape Aparthotel offers over 60 serviced apartments of various types, located in a contemporary building at the very heart of Budapest, Hungary.
www.agapeapartments.com

“It’s very important our guests have a free WiFi service that can be relied upon. The TRIAX solution was installed quickly without any disturbance, and has increased our satisfaction ratings. We no longer get any complaints about the internet.”

— Balázs Radó, Managing Director, Agape Aparthotel

Fast and reliable

For a home away from home in the centre of Budapest, Apage Aparthotel is one of the most popular serviced apartment destinations for visitors to the Hungarian capital.

Yet it was clear to guests, and Agape’s owners, that the existing WiFi service did not match the high quality of the apartments or the other amenities offered.

TRIAX was able to offer a solution that both sent network signals around the building’s existing coax infrastructure – ideal, since the building owner would not permit any structural modifications – and sent a reliable WiFi signal that fully covered each and every apartment, including larger ones with 3 rooms.

“Installing a TRIAX WiFi end point in each apartment really changed the game for us,” explains Balázs Radó, Agape’s Managing Director. “Each one was installed in just 15 minutes, so we didn’t need to have any apartments out of service. Our guest WiFi signal is now much stronger and more reliable.”

  • Fast, reliable WiFi covering every apartment
  • Outage periods and blackspots eliminated, even in 3-roomed apartments
  • Improved online ratings
  • No more customer dissatisfaction with WiFi

Before: a crowded WiFi environment

After: full, reliable access to the guest network with a TRIAX end point in each apartment

Technical details

  • Core coax network planned by TRIAX and updated with TRIAX RG11 cables
  • Network now completely independent from previous service provider
  • Existing coax infrastructure maintained in apartments
  • Internet signal received by a TRIAX EoC + WiFi controller, transmitting the IP network over the coax cables
  • Network configuration took 1 hour
  • TRIAX end points installed in each of 65 apartments, transmitting WiFi and the TV signal
  • End point installation took 15 minutes per apartment

Saltviks Camping

TRIAX

Better WiFi for campsites with TRIAX Ethernet over Coax

In summer 2018, TRIAX rolled out its Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution to the huts at Saltviks Camping, Sweden.

Each and every hut now enjoys a fast and reliable WiFi signal, overcoming many of the problems encountered with the previous service such as intermittent signals and patchy coverage.

The fully managed network runs over the coax cabling that was already in place around the site, resulting in time and money saved in installation.

Situated in northern Bohuslän, Sweden, Saltviks Camping hosts over 300 caravans and plots, alongside 22 huts.
www.saltvikscamping.se

“It’s critical these days for our guests to be able to surf online and access their TV streaming services from home, when they stay with us. We need to make sure the WiFi we offer is up to the task, and the TRIAX solution has helped us to greatly improve our service for the 2019 season.”

—Joakim Ulvhammar
General Manager, Saltviks Camping

Sun, sea and streaming

Fresh air, clear water and an abundance of natural splendour characterises Saltviks Camping’s stunning location in northern Bohuslän province, Sweden.

But it’s not just the nature and top-drawer entertainment at Saltviks that their campers appreciate.

For many guests, particularly those staying for longer periods or coming from neighbouring Norway or Denmark, it’s just as important to be able to access high quality, reliable WiFi that keeps all the family happy and tuned in to their favourite TV streaming services.

With the booking rate for their 22 huts lower than their caravan spots, Saltviks Camping needed to add a first-rate WiFi solution they could offer in the huts alongside their existing amenities.

TRIAX, alongside installation partner Electronic Equipment in Tanum, delivered the WiFi solution to all huts. It greatly improves the service they can offer their guests, resulting in:

  • Fast, reliable WiFi covering each corner of every hut
  • Outage periods and blackspots eliminated
  • More satisfied guests using the service
  • Increased likelihood of repeat bookings

“It was important to find a solution that would cover all the huts with a signal the guests could rely on. The TRIAX solution was easy and quick to install and simple to configure. It turns out, the installation runs even more smoothly since the coax cables themselves were also from TRIAX!”Stefan Arvidsson, TRIAX Partner. Owner, Electronic Equipment Tanum.

Installation details

  • Network signal transmitted to a TRIAX EoC + WiFi controller.
  • Controller transmits the IP network over the existing coax cables serving the site’s 22 huts.
  • The cables were also TRIAX-produced.
  • TRIAX end points installed in each hut transmitting WiFi, and the TV signal.
  • Plans in place to roll out to the rest of the park in 4 further stages.
