The Franklin Hotel, Knightsbridge
The Franklin Hotel is an established and well documented 5 star hotel based in the heart of Knightsbridge London.
It is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment to its entire interior, and has chosen to update its full voice and data applications as part of these works.
After several months of negotiation and consultancy and despite strong competition Micron Communications were given the order to proceed with the supply and install of a Mitel telephone system. This system was to be complimented from Microns portfolio with the addition of Telecom Eye call management and hospitality voicemail and a Nomadix WiFi guest internet system.
With the addition of the WiFi system and the use of Colubris MAP 300 multi service access points we were then able to consult and implement a WiFi cordless solution utilising Spectra Link handsets and server.
As the project was to take approximately 10 months to complete and the management staff required to continue to work at site Micron provided service to them by handling all the line provision elements and a loan telephone system into temporary cabins situated outside the building.
Due to Microns expansive portfolio designed around the hospitality market we were asked to consult further on the project and as a result we installed a temporary IT network and are due to install a full administration IT network consisting of a server, back office PCs and peripheral equipment along with our own provision of ADSL, ISDN and VPNs.
As the works have progressed it became apparent that due to additional services being included into the planned containment risers for the CAT5 cabling that was being provided via 3rd party the newly planned cable route was to be in excess of 90 metres, Micron was again called in to consult and from this we are now installing a Fibre backbone down through the floors to allow for cabling to come in at separate levels and be terminated into the basement Comms Room.
From the procurement of just the telephone system the owners have now entrusted Micron with the design, supply and install of all the voice and back office data including the design and implementation of the backbone to the cable infrastructure to the entire property.
This case study goes a long way to show how Microns experience, knowledge and wide range of products can be put into place seamlessly to give a one stop shop for any voice and data requirements that any hospitality site may need.
