Swisscom hotel technologies for Crowne Plaza Verona Fiera

Swisscom has provided its technology services to Crowne Plaza Verona Fiera, the city’s newest business hotel designed by architect Mario Bellini.
Opened in April, the four-star property is located at Verona’s exhibition centre and benefits from Swisscom’s ConnectedHotel TV solution with multiple guest and hotel services running on one integrated service platform.
“I am intrigued by Swisscom’s connected hotel TV solution,” says Luigi Leardini, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza Verona Fiera. “It has everything that today’s guests can expect in terms of entertainment and with its zero reaction time between the remote control and the TV screen, it is unbeatably interactive! Plus, we do not need to hide any extra cables and set-top boxes behind the TV screens or somewhere in a drawer. This is a clear design advantage. But it’s also more energy efficient and ultimately more environmentally respectful.”
Moreover, Swisscom has provided wired and wireless Internet connectivity in all hotel areas, including the hotel’s back-office, an optimised user interface for Smartphone users and a fully equipped Business Centre with wireless printing functionality from all WiFi-enabled mobile phones, media tablets and laptops. All services run on the same Swisscom-managed network infrastructure.
