Teledex Announces Availability of New ExpressNet™
WiFi Wireless Access Points
Latest Addition to ExpressNet Line Complements
Company's Wired HSIA Offerings

San Jose, CA, October 28, 2003 --- Teledex, the leading worldwide provider of telephones for the hospitality industry, and the fastest growing supplier of high-speed Internet access equipment to the industry, today announced the addition of a wireless component to its ExpressNet high-speed product family. ExpressNet WiFi provides industrial-grade 802.11b wireless access points that enable lodging properties of all types to expand their ExpressNet coverage across the entire property, including public spaces and meeting rooms.

Teledex introduced ExpressNet in late 2002 as an integrated, economical solution for lodging properties of all types to deliver dependable, high-speed Internet access. ExpressNet's wired solution provides convenient high-speed Internet access for guestrooms via the patented ExpressPort adapter that fits entirely under Teledex guestroom telephones. Requiring no recabling, ExpressNet uses existing phone wiring to deliver Internet access that is at least twenty (20) times faster than standard 56k dialup. Many properties prefer offering wired high-speed access in guestrooms for several key reasons, including consistent quality of service versus wireless; easier guest setup and launch; and universal accessibility due to the fact that the great majority of travelers do not have or carry wireless-equipped PCs.
Wireless access remains the preferred solution for public spaces and meeting rooms, and ExpressNet WiFi addresses that segment of the market. 

By deploying a mix of wired and wireless ExpressNet solutions across a property, hoteliers are ensured of providing the highest quality of service and maximum coverage area at the lowest cost
.
The ExpressNet WiFi wireless access points themselves possess several features that set them apart from standard consumer-grade units, as well as competitive commercial-grade access points:

  • Comprehensive network management software that enables performance fine-tuning, as well as complete administration of the network of wireless access points.
  • Powerful security features to keep unwanted intruders out, including 
  • WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy); Secure SSID; MAC access control; SNMP access control.
  • Detachable antenna allows for the installation of high-gain antennas to expand coverage area.

ExpressNet WiFi products are available for shipment immediately. Please contact Teledex at (800) 794-8353 or sales@teledex.com
