Business Technology Partners has completed a multi-year technology consulting and infrastructure design project for The Trump SoHo Condominium Hotel.

 

The hotel is a technologically sophisticated destination hotel where advanced technologies converge to provide a user friendly and feature-rich environment for the hotel’s guests which includes:

 

• Cisco VoIP touch screen phones in each room that allow guests to order room service, check the weather, and access other hotel amenities.

• Control4® Suite Systems wireless control system installed in each guest room enabling control of the room lights, shades and air-conditioning through a single, universal remote-control and an advanced graphical user-interface on the televisions.

• Distributed antenna system (DAS) and a robust, high-speed wireless (Wi-Fi) network that will enhance mobile application use and Internet access via both wireless LAN and cellular connectivity

• Cisco Unified Communications network, providing state-of-the art telecommunications platforms including IP Telephony, Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), and a resilient core LAN/WAN switching & routing infrastructure

• Nevotek V/IP Suite™, which greatly enhances the functionality and features of the Cisco touchscreen VoIP phones with advanced IP applications

• Wireless hi-speed Internet access (HSIA) via the latest and fastest Cisco 802.11n wireless access points

• Wireless voice communications using the Vocera® communications system. Vocera puts a wireless one-button, push-to-talk, VoIP over Wireless LAN, mobile device in the hands of all key hotel staff that allows mobile workers to instantly communicate with each other, hands free, whether down the hall or down the block at the hotel’s management offices, using simple voice-activated, spoken commands

 

The Trump SoHo Condominium Hotel is a 46-story high-rise with 391 guestrooms, a high-end restaurant, a pool, banquet facilities, a business center, a club, a spa and many other amenities. It has been developed as both a high-profile celebrity/international travel destination and a corporate meeting facility. Being located close to the Holland Tunnel and in SoHo, the property anticipates continued regular corporate use from key managers and stakeholders in major downtown financial institutions.
