Leveraging fiber to optimize hospitality networks

whitePaper | March 9, 2022

As network connectivity plays an increasingly important role in an intelligent converged infrastructure, hospitality owners and brands are challenged to find ways to leverage technology in order to improve their guest experience. Historically, most hotel networks weren’t designed from the ground up. Instead, they slowly evolved to support a hodgepodge of existing technologies such as DSL (digital subscriber line), DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification), and G.hn (data transmission over telephone wiring, coaxial cables, power lines). While these technologies were adequate at the time and maximized the life-span of the current cabling infrastructure, guests continue to demand more from their hospitality network. Today, guests expect a modern hospitality network to offer power, wired and wireless connectivity, and an increasing number of new technologies such as internet of things (IoT) as part of their guest experience.

NATURE POSITIVE TRAVEL & TOURISM

whitePaper | September 22, 2022

Travel & Tourism are intrinsically linked to biodiversity and nature. Over half of Travel & Tourism demand is driven by the desire to explore nature, whether it is an international safari of a lifetime or a day trip exploring the countryside. Furthermore, Travel & Tourism is one of six economic sectors with over 80% of its goods and services highly dependent on nature. Similarly, conservation efforts, protected areas and local economies are fuelled by Travel & Tourism revenue and the presence of visitors. In literary terms, nature and biodiversity are the book and the Travel & Tourism sector is the publisher. This interdependence places our sector in a unique position to protect our planet’s natural wonders.

ActivitySim ACTIVITY-BASED TRAVEL DEMAND MODELING BUILT BY AND FOR USERS

whitePaper | June 6, 2022

Trip-based models have been around for over half a century. In that time, they have improved in many ways. But their primary shortcoming—that they model trips independently of each other and not the people who make trips—can limit their ability to answer complex transportation planning questions. Activity-based models address this core limitation through microsimulation of individuals and generation of daily travel diaries and activity schedules. However, user concerns about activity-based models’ cost, complexity, and support have limited their wider adoption.
