The Ability to Stay Connected Was Deemed The Most Important In-Room Amenity

For business travelers, a good internet connection was interestingly ranked even more important than the hotel’s location or the attitude of their staff. Business travelers don’t want just any Wi-Fi access with their stay; they need reliable super fast Internet access to their applications and resources back at HQ, on datacenter servers or in the cloud. When hospitality companies cannot provide this amenity, they risk losing guests and considerable revenue.

Cloud and Internet-based applications like Microsoft Office 365, Google collaboration tools, Skype, Salesforce.com are a few of the applications consuming existing hotel bandwidth and creating congestion on networks. Meanwhile, all public and private cloud-based applications for hotel teams will also need to run smoothly, while IT department is trying to meet the need for guests. 

The Q-Balancer comes with QoS, link load balancing, and automatic link failover. Its multi-WAN load balancing helps hotel build a cost-effective WAN with its ability to combine bandwidth for low-cost broadband lines. Its QoS ensures hotel teams a quality Internet access when needed, and smooth communications with the headquarters. Q-Balancer gives hotel IT even more visibility and granular application control over WAN with its ability of application-awareness.

By deploying Q-Balancer as a SD-WAN solution to hotel industry, WAN upgrade is done without a complete overhaul of an IT infrastructure. Increased bandwidth and applications prioritizing can be achieved at the same time. The solution provides a better user experience for hotel guests, especially for business travelers, while ensuring the delivery for hotels' critical applications.

>  Maximum Network Availability
Q-Balancer provides business travelers a stable Internet access with its capability of seamless carrier failover, and it enables business in hospitality industry to harness all available WAN links to increase Internet speed. 

>  Hybrid Connectivity & Increased Availability
By simply adding low-cost broadband lines to the Q-Balancer appliance sitting on a private network, WAN resiliency and bandwidth can be increased for the site-to-site and cloud-based applications. 

>  Assured Performance for Business-critical Cloud Application
As more applications being moved to the cloud, the access from branch networks to the cloud can then be directed directly to public network rather than go through the data centers like before. By doing so, the cloud applications become more responsive, and the data center bandwidth efficiency is increased due to no longer having to backhaul branch office traffic via the data center to the regional hub-site firewall. 

>  Cost Saving
Once the Q-Balancer solution adopted, limited bandwidth of MPLS or Leased Line can be replaced by adding low-cost broadband connections. This brings you a substantial saving without compromising the quality. 

>  Visibility
The industry gains increased visibility into real-time application performance across links.
