Systems integrator Al-Futtaim Technologies  announced on day two of GITEX Technology Week that it has implemented two converged communication networks at Al Manzil and Qamardeen Hotels, two Dubai-based properties operated by South African hotel group Southern Sun.

Our properties are centrally located and in the next two years we anticipate a steady increase in guests, hence we decided to install technology that would meet the needs of our guests," says Southern Sun Middle East MD Richard Weilers.

Al-Futtaim Technologies general manager Venkat Raghavan notes that strengthening customer loyalty is a key success factor for hospitality operators.

The solution adopted at both properties includes the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise communication server for guestrooms and back office, the OmniSwitch active data network and the OmniAccess wireless network in common areas for guest internet access, the FCS application suite for hospitality property management system and a Nexans Structured Cabling solution - Cat6 with Fiber copper backbone.
