Smy Hotels puts its trust in ITM Global as supplier of fibre optic systems

By | 11 July, 2019 | 0 comments

Smy Hotels, the hotel division of Logitravel Group, the leading tourism provider in Spain, Portugal and Italy and operator of 6 hotels in Spain, Greece and Italy, has entrusted ITM Global with the installation of a fibre optic network based on GPON technology in its hotel Smy Costa del Sol, located opposite the beach in Torremolinos (Málaga).

With this forward-looking venture, Smy Hotels formulates a new concept for the hotel sector which combines the best of traditional hospitality with the latest technological business solutions. So for Smy Hotels, the installation of this technology in its rooms is key to offering guests the highest standards of quality, service and personalised attention. It also constitutes a foundation on which to base technological development in an agile and natural manner.

For Raimund Sacherer, CTO of Smy Hotels, “IT and communication networks have changed from being a tool to being an essential element of business and the operation of every hotel. A good network is therefore fundamental in meeting the needs of customers, now and in the future. With a partner like ITM Global, Smy Hotels can focus on offering the technologies of the future, thanks to the tranquillity that comes with knowing we’re supported 24/7 by a powerful, agile and trusted partner”.

For Sergio Juan Lozano, CCO of Smy Hotels, “This technology is the base that allows us to offer our guests a personalised experience, through the use of services such as VoIP, IPTV and WiFi with the highest possible quality. Giving customers the opportunity to consume their own content in our hotels, whether it’s on our 4K TVs or their own devices, with even better quality that they would have at home”.

Smy Hotels is the hotel division of Logitravel Group, the leading tourism provider in Spain, Portugal and Italy, which has 6 hotels in Spain, Greece and Italy.

The quality of installations, food and services, cool, light-filled rooms, excellent beds, superior cleaning and peace and quiet to ensure a good night’s sleep combine with thoughtful use of technology based on communication and shared experience, to offer guests a stay that’s original and different. We want to make the hotel an unforgettable experience for our visitors, using technology as a vehicle they can use to tell us about their needs, wishes and views.

About ITM Global

ITM Global offers broad expertise in GPON technology for hotels, homes and hospitality, backed by more than 25 years’ experience of providing solutions and services to customers of all kinds.

In recent months, ITM Global has focused its telecommunications strategy on the installation of fibre optics systems (FTTR – Fibre To The Room) in hospitality settings, drawing on its lengthy experience in fibre optics for the residential sector.

To achieve this, ITM Global uses GPON network architecture, similar to that used by major operators to bring fibre connectivity to homes, known as FTTH (Fibre To The Home).

With this technology, ITM Global can ensure faster connection speeds than currently available in every hotel room. This brings considerable added value to the guest experience, thanks to dynamic management of bandwidths and services for each room. It also allows rooms to offer a range of services such as IPTV, IP telephony and streaming platforms like Netflix or similar.

From a business perspective, this technology allows the hotel chain to include new services for both the user and the management team, thus achieving a substantial reduction in operating expenses for the business, compared to the conventional networks and systems previously used.
