Since the start of the 21st century, global economic integration and tourism has led

to rapid growth in the hospitality industry. The next 20 to 30 years is projected to be the

golden era for hospitality industry growth, especially in China. Along with the continued

development of the economy and steady per capita income improvement, by 2020 China will become

the largest traveling and tourism country, and China’s hotel industry will continue to

maintain about 15% growth rate for the next ten years.

With this rapid growth comes increased competition and guest expectations for continuous

improvement of hotel services. Hoteliers therefore need to raise service levels and improve

guest experiences to increase room occupancy rates, while keeping operating costs down and

continuing to enhance the hotel’s competitive status. Information management is an

important tool to help this and improve hotel operating efficiencies. Hoteliers face the

following key challenges:

1. How to use information management to enhance guest experiences and promote higher

occupancy rates in a highly competitive market.

2. How to reduce hotel network construction and operating costs, while enhancing the

hotel’s competitive edge through using the information management tool.

To answer these challenges, Huawei has a cost-effective, easy to deploy and maintain,

secure and green solution that also provides business expansion opportunities. The solution

is based on the full range of star products Huawei has exclusively designed for hoteliers,

including products for voice, broadband, security, wireless, surveillance, and mobile

applications. Huawei’s Smart Hotel solutions can carry voice, data, video, and other hotel

services through one IP based network, not only reducing the network construction and wiring

costs, but also maintaining good avenues for business expansion. The energy-saving design

of the entire network reduces the hotel network energy consumption and helps hoteliers build

smart and green hotels.

Huawei Helps TENGCHONG TAO Resort Build a World-Class

Modern Luxury Hotel

In the competitive hotel industry ICT can help hotels win new business. The question is: How do you build a hotel with smart technology and sup erior services? TENGCHONG TAO Resort asks Huawei to find A Better Way.

TENGCHONG TAO Resort, Asia’s Largest Villa Resort and Spa

The Yunnan Tengchong TENGCHONG TAO Resort and Spa is a five-star villa and spa hotel designed

by one ot the world’s top architects. The resort occupies 640,000 square meters and includes

1,028 luxury villas, a hot springs spa, clubs, shopping centers, recreation areas, and a

celestial observatory. Hotel construction is divided into two phases: in phase one, 428

villas are scheduled for completion by 2013; in phase two, the 600 remaining villas are

scheduled for completion.

Designing a Hotel Network for Long Distances Presents Many Challenges

The TENGCHONG TAO Resort is a typical resort hotel, with luxury villas, meeting rooms,

recreation centers, restaurants, office and shopping centers, and other functional areas

widely dispersed over a large campus. These areas require multiple network services such

as broadband Internet access, wireless communications, telephone services, VOD, video

conferencing, video surveillance, IPTV, information dissemination, and other guest services.

Business systems, such as Property Management System (PMS) software, banquet sales,

concierge, dispatch, and other applications must also be widely available for routine hotel

operations, as well as video surveillance and security services for the entire resort.

Basic network designs do not adequately address the demand for high-speed, high-bandwidth

services in resort networks. The hotel has requested assistance with these unique challenges:

How to build a cost-effective network over long distances and widely dispersed areas?

How to deliver a variety of guest and business services without

switched networks?

GPON + LSW Technologies Enable All-Services Access in All-in-One Network

The GPON + LSW solution from Huawei implements modern hotel features and services

economically and reliably by integrating multiple networks into a single, core IP network

that serves as the delivery system for all guest services and business applications.

Aware of the need for high-bandwidth services over widely dispersed areas, Huawei was first

to introduce Gigabit Passive Network (GPON) technology as a network solution for the hotel

industry. This solution deploys Fiber To The Home (FTTH) technology, widely deployed in

carrier networks, to alleviate the high costs and power supply problems associated with

networking over long distances. Huawei proposed this solution to optimize voice and data

services, including security surveillance and media streaming, to luxury villas with simple

deployment.

In all other campus areas, Huawei deploys a switched LAN (LSW) network to guarantee reliable

access to data-intensive business information and services. These switches are deployed at

dense access points for secure access to VoIP and other data services.

To meet the requirement for world-class services befitting a modern luxury hotel that are

distributed by a unified network, Huawei designed an all-IP nework infrastracture that

integrates wired, wireless, telephone, video conference, VOD, and IPTV services into an

All-In-One multi-service network, that can be accessed from different systems on the campus.

Secure, Efficient, and Integrated High-Speed Optical Transmission

The resort uses high-speed optical fiber throughout the hotel and campus areas as the

transmission medium for voice and data services. Because villa areas are regionally dispersed

and provide no obvious aggregation points, Huawei utilizes GPON technology to implement Fiber

To The Home (FTTH) connections with villas. In GPON technology, an Optical Network Terminal

(ONT) device provides access to all available voice and data network services for the villa.

The ONT provides two POTS ports and four GE/FE auto-adapting Ethernet ports to support

high-performance Internet and HD video services. The ONT solution costs 50 percent less in

CAPEX than traditional switched solutions, in terms of equipment expense, consumes little

power (about as much power as a light switch), and does not require a separate power supply

for distances within 5 kilometers.

Three-layer switched networking is used for all other hotel areas to handle the diversified,

information-intensive requirements and traffic flows of hotel business applications,

services, and operations, including surveillance, where reliability and efficiency are

essential. Double-core and double-link networking ensure that the hotel intranet is stable

and reliable. The switch deploys firewall, IPS, NAC, and other safety components to guarantee

network security.

These technologies establish a solid foundation for a modern campus-wide network with the

flexibility for future business or network expansion.

Integrated Wireless Network and Network Management

The most important considerations in wireless networking are access and coverage. For

TENGCHONG TAO, Huawei designed a wireless Access Controller (AC) and thin Access Point (AP)

solution (AC + Fit AP) using a wired and wireless integrated authentication server to ensure

a consistent user experience. The Huawei eSight network management system manages the access

switches, OLT & ONT devices, and core switches, which together form a fully featured,

centralized hotel wireless system for complete WLAN coverage across the campus.

Open and Converged Voice System

ONT devices provide one-number voice services to villas. In the denser office, shopping,

and spa areas, Integrated Access Device (IAD) equipment is deployed to deliver centralized

telephone services to phones on all floors, rooms, and common areas. These phone services

converge in the core network through the program-controlled switches and access the PSTN

network through Huawei’s U1980 IP PBX, deployed in the network core. This voice solution

enables analog phones to access the PSTN through the IP network a separate voice network

is not required.

Intelligent HD Video Surveillance

Security is a major concern at resorts. At TENGCHONG TAO, High-Definition (HD) IP cameras

protect guests, resort property, parking areas, and other areas within the resort.

Surveillance cameras deployed in villa areas use GPON technology to transmit HD media streams

for distribution by the IP network. Cameras deployed in all other areas connect to the core

IP network through switches, providing comprehensive video surveillance and security for

the resort and resort guests.

Efficient Electronic Work Order System

The E-Dispatch System is an application system developed by Huawei together with partners

for handling hotel work orders electronically. When guests call the front desk for assistance,

the request is entered into the E-Dispatch system and automatically dispatched to the mobile

phone of the appropriate staff member. For example, for room service requests, the order

is sent to the waiter’s mobile phone through the WLAN network. After the order is delivered,

the waiter reports the new status and the system updates the work order. This system

implements closed-loop management for guest services, improves work efficiency for

productivity gains of up to 30%, and promotes customer satisfaction and customer loyalty.

HD-Compatible Video Conferencing

The TENGCHONG TAO Resort uses Huawei’s Telepresence Conference System to provide remote

face-to-facemeetings for guests. This service, typically used by medium- to large-sized

businesses, stands out as a luxury service for guests and receives high marks from customers.

The Huawei Smart Hotel Solution

With the Huawei smart hotel solution, TENGCHONG TAO Resort can build a winning,

cost-effective network for a large campus with widely dispersed, functional areas. To meet

the requirements of a modern luxury hotel, the resort deploys an All-In-One IP core network

to handle all bearer services in a converged, network infrastructure, reducing maintenance

and investment expenses. At the same time, by deploying efficient information systems like

one-key customer service and E-Dispatch, the TENGCHONG TAO Resort can offer a new technology

experience to customers, enhancing customer satisfaction, increasing brand loyalty, and

improving the hotels standing against the competition.
