iBAHN, a specialist in digital entertainment and internet solutions for the hospitality and meeting industries, today announced that it has completed a full broadband services, and digital entertainment installation at Hotel Napoléon Paris.

The hotel will be equipped with iBAHN’s IPTV solution (ETVi) and wired and wireless broadband services allowing guests in the 102 rooms and public areas to access the internet securely, with a high quality of service and technical support in local languages. iBAHN’s ETVi delivers digital services that combine “home-from-home” digital TV entertainment with superb HD picture quality vastly superior to analogue systems,  and secure high-speed internet services.

Using ETVi, the Hotel Napoléon Paris will now fully integrate guest services with entertainment packages, which can be completely tailored to the hotel, including a hotel information channel and the ability to upload new content. These services offer multiple revenue streams along with guest satisfaction through the system’s ease of use combined with greater choice of high-quality entertainment.

Business travellers with sensitive corporate information will also benefit from the highest standards of data security through iBAHN’s Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) solution, which eliminates the ability to steal guest data and provides total separation between different wireless users.

In addition, iBAHN offers a Virtual Private Network (VPN) certification programme and unlimited IP addresses, which allow business travellers to connect easily to their own corporate network.

Bruno Alleau, Directeur adjoint Hôtelier of Hotel Napoléon Paris, comments: “We have had a long relationship with iBAHN and this latest installation provides the Hotel Napoléon Paris with a complete Internet Access service, combined with an unrivalled digital entertainment system, which we can tailor at will to suit hotel guest requirements and update on new offers as they happen.”

Graeme Powell, Managing Director EMEA, iBAHN, adds: “The Hotel Napoléon Paris is one of many hotels that we work with in the French capital, yet it is one of the first to go live with the latest version of our ETVi service, which offers the ultimate in guest entertainment and communication. This service now sets the standard in the sector, and is a powerful differentiator for hotel groups and individual properties alike.”
