Description (last modified by llynch@…)

Hi!

I was just thinking, whether we could reduce the load in the in-house 
network by installing WLAN Access Point at ideal places outside to cover 
some hotel-rooms "via the window".

I am in 4th floor and get a weak signal. If standing at the window I can 
somewhat make use of it, but lots of packet loss.
A stronger signal could make me very happy...;-)

Is this idea feasible?

cheers,
  Bernie

Subject: [72attendees] Update on the Hotel's Guestroom Network


Because the heavy load on the guest room network is interacting negatively with the delivery of video over IP to the TVs in the rooms. Certainly CityWest has never experienced traffic loads like we're generating from the guest room side, and we're likely uncovering some issues in the underlying guest room infrastructure.

The hotel staff has been working this issue since early this morning, and they believe that they have fixed the underlying issue causing congestion and poor TV performance.  We have lifted the rate-limit on the router ports facing the guestroom network.

There has also been a fix put in place on the guestroom network that was affecting some PPTP users in their rooms.

Both the wireless and terminal room networks, are directly over our infrastructure and are unaffected by these issues with the guestroom side.

This request is out of scope for the IETF meeting NOC, room coverage is not in the hosts remit.
