Exinda and Single Digits Provide WAN Optimization for Hospitality Industry
Exinda, a global provider of WAN optimization solutions, today, announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Single Digits, a leading provider of guest network deployments, management software, and technical support solutions. This partnership will compliment Single Digits’ current Guest Internet Access solution, enabling their customers to enjoy massive improvements in application response time. Exinda’s x60 family of WAN Optimization appliances eliminates unnecessary WAN traffic, reducing expensive bandwidth costs for the hospitality industry property manager.
Exinda’s ExOS software, running on the x60 family of WAN Optimization appliances, provides the inspection, identification and reporting functions that are essential to effective WAN optimization and traffic shaping. Deep packet inspection and heuristic traffic inspection enable accurate identification of all applications including evasive and encrypted applications such as P2P file sharing. Non business critical traffic, such as P2P social applications, can be controlled via policies that provide for application prioritization, traffic shaping and other bandwidth and Quality of Service (QoS) management techniques, providing an unmatched user experience.
Single Digits’ Guest Internet Access solution is differentiated by the power of its Business Access Portal (BAP) software. In addition to providing a full suite of Authentication, Authorization & Accounting (AAA) tools, it combines network monitoring, usage reporting and trouble ticketing for an entire portfolio of properties via a single user interface. The BAP software is housed in redundant data centers and allows the company’s help desk staff to quickly isolate technical issues and resolve support requests on the first call. The integration of Single Digits’ and Exinda’s intuitive products has improved the network experience for the guests and extended the life of the hotel’s existing network infrastructure without needing to add additional expensive Internet connections.
“The Exinda devices provide insight into network activity, usage and performance, and provide the monitoring and controls needed to keep hospitality networks operating at peak performance,” said Stephen Singlar, Single Digits’ president and co-founder.
