This Barcelona hotel was chosen by Telefónica as a strategic location for the presentation and installation of this new technology during the Mobile World Congress.
Ayre Hoteles has once again shown its commitment to the latest technological advances in its facilities which combine comfort, design and innovation for all guests. The Spanish telecommuncations company chose the Ayre Hotel Gran Vía in Barcelona as a shop window in the latest edition of the Mobile World Congress. With a view to launching its fourth generation mobile phone, Telefónica set up a 4G intelligent network with advanced features in the hotel, significantly improving the coverage in rooms and communal areas and increasing the capacity by up to 400% even in areas with a high density of traffic.
After more than a year of research, Telefónica can offer its most advanced technological solutions, perfect for hotels and business centres, as it provides fast internet access, therefore boosting the download of files and documents, offering speeds which are much higher than those offered by 3G.
Voice, data and multimedia services will be available at any time and in any location in the hotel, as well as offering greater security protection for users. It will also allow for global connectivity through different networks and network failures will be avoided when the user is travelling through areas covered by different networks.
Through this, the Ayre Hotel Gran Vía has shown its commitment to the near future and its thoughtful consideration for guests who need a fast and reliable Internet connection, especially in the case of business trips and meetings or events in the hotel’s facilities. As well as the free Wi-Fi Internet service, the Hotel now has a mobile telephone network which supports speeds of over 10 times faster than those offered by the 3G network.
The hotel also boasts an unbeatable location in the central Plaza de España, near Barcelona’s business district and 15 minutes from El Prat airport. All this, as well as a minimalist atmosphere, noted for its modern and functional design, perfectly complemented by the welcoming service offered.
