Huge Wi-Fi upgrade for Solihull hotel

The Butchers Social Forest Hotel is situated in Dorridge, Solihull, and has recently been bought by new owners with a huge refurbishment plan! Part of the refurb included a much needed upgrade of their current Wi-Fi network, as the existing system was out-dated, produced poor connectivity, and had improperly installed cabling.

The Breathe Install team decided that a high-performance Draytek router, switch and access points would provide coverage and connectivity to all 14 zones of the building including bedrooms, terraces, restaurant, bar and conferencing/wedding facilities. The selected VigorAP 1060C includes a high-performance Mesh Wireless solution, with Wi-Fi 6 technology, offering up to 3.6Gbps dual-band wireless performance and up to 2.5Gb Ethernet connectivity.

For added security and QoS prioritisation, the Breathe Install team configured the system with multiple VLANs for clients, guests, conference rooms, business meetings and EPOS, and remote manage of this installation will take place via a VigorACS2 central management platform.
