STOCKHOLM -- HP will be supplying a total solution to all Scandic’s hotels in Scandinavia. The agreement will give guests at more than 100 Scandic hotels access to wireless Internet connections as well as stationary computers and printer services. HP’s solution is based on Aptilo Network’s public WLAN platform and means that Scandic will be using a single technical platform for all its hotels.

A growing number of hotels have seen a rising demand for wireless Internet and therefore need a purpose-built solution to enable secure and dependable use. For hotels with many business guests, WLAN access in rooms is taken for granted in the same way as a TV. Scandic offer its guests these services at no extra cost.

Aptilo’s system solution is today used by more than 300 hotels worldwide and at a large number of airports, cafés and other public environments. The system has been developed to handle most payment methods and business models and is the obvious choice for all professional WLAN users.

HP has previously worked with Aptilo in projects including supplying a solution for the global operator T-Mobile for its hotspot services in all its Starbucks coffee shops and Sheraton hotels in the UK.

”Our partnership with HP has been very rewarding. HP supplies the total solution while we contribute our market-leading solution for handling, operation and supervision of traffic between Internet access providers and users,” says Paul Mikkelsen, sales manager at Aptilo Networks.

Aptilo has spent four years developing its solution and has today installations in more than 30 countries across five continents. Aptilo and HP have worked together since the spring of 2002.

”With the help of Aptilo Networks’s solutions, HP can deliver total solutions for wireless Internet connection in places with large numbers of visitors such as hotels, airports and conference centres. In more recent times, however, we have also seen a growing demand from schools, public libraries and other sources that see the service not as a source of income but a trouble-free way of providing better service,” says Ove Söderberg, Business Area Manager, Mobile Solutions at HP.
