45 Steps leadership understood that today’s guests universally expect access to a reliable internet connection whether for keeping in touch with family or friends, for work purposes or for entertainment. However, the property’s remote location meant that 45 Steps was limited to deploying Starlink for its guest Wi-Fi service. As a result, property leadership sought out a network solutions provider that could nevertheless ensure a reliable internet connection for each guest regardless of their onsite location. To fully address modern connectivity expectations, 45 Steps also sought out a provider able to provide a solution that can accommodate demands for access to personal streaming subscriptions on guestroom televisions.

The decision to partner with HIS to resolve such issues came after the property identified the company’s ability to provide effective solutions for hotels of any size. With the hotel’s limited bandwidth resources, for example, HIS technicians deployed advanced yet affordable technology that can pre-assign bandwidth use levels to individual guestrooms. This ability ensures that each guest receives their fair share of online access while preventing guest overuse from affecting the experiences of others. To ensure seamless and reliable connectivity throughout the premises, HIS also equipped 45 Steps with advanced Ruckus access points that can provide guest devices with strong Wi-Fi signal quality.

“Many industry providers are focused on providing solutions for large properties and major brands, so we were thrilled to learn that HIS offers custom-tailored technology and services able to address the connectivity needs for a property of our size… After a painless installation process for both our Wi-Fi service and for GuestCast, HIS sidesteps system management challenges that smaller hotels with no IT staff often encounter by monitoring performance themselves in real-time. Thanks to the ongoing support of HIS, we can now confidently provide a level of connectivity that meets typical guest needs while also providing an in-room entertainment experience ensuring full enjoyment.”
