Connected Guests: Connected Mobile Experiences for Hospitality

Imagine this travel experience: You enter your hotel, and your mobile app buzzes to welcome you back and offers you free Wi-Fi within the lobby area. The app informs you you’re now in line for check-in with a 3 minute wait – your latte is being made in the waiting lounge, and the receptionist will come directly to you. After you check-in, the app launches a map of the property, highlighting all of the hotel’s amenities. As you walk to your room, personalized dining and spa promotions appear – they can be used anytime during your stay.

Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences solution can enable hospitality organizations to use Wi-Fi location services to engage and retain always-connected mobile guests by providing them with highly personalized content and experiences.

Hospitality venues can also use the Wi-Fi network to augment the guest and conference experience to build loyalty and boost sales with location-based information integrated into mobile applications.

Cisco Application Visibility with 3rd Party Tools

With the advent of BYOD and the proliferation of mobile applications – it’s become ever important to have visibility into your wireless network using deep packet inspection. By classifying the data flows that go through the wireless LAN, administrators now have visibility into the top users and top applications which are consuming bandwidth on their network. After analyzing this data and armed with visibility into these applications, Cisco AVC allows the administrator to then take action such as prioritize, deprioritize or block on the applications in their network.

Since Cisco has released Application Visibility and Control (AVC) for wireless -- our customers and partners have been highly interested in the technology and how it can be put to work for them.  Visibility into the applications is made possible on the controller web interface which is useful for diagnosing real-time issues or analyzing short-term application trends. The wireless LAN controller GUI is shown below depicting a network using a variety of applications as identified by AVC.
