Teledex, a leading worldwide provider of guestroom telephones for the hospitality industry, announced the completion of a major ExpressNet installation encompassing over 520 Motel 6 locations throughout North America.

The entire project was completed in roughly four and a half months, wrapping up on May 27, 2008.

Teledex provided ExpressNet AirLink wireless gear, including in-room wireless access points, gateway servers and switch gear, as well as configuration and installation services for all properties in the installation. The company is also providing 24/7 guest and administrative support for all the guestrooms and lobbies served.

“This is an excellent demonstration of our capabilities as an integrator of network products and services,” said Teledex CEO Ron Lesniak, Ph.D. “Our in-house team directed a substantial force of field technicians that managed to install an average of 35 properties per week over the course of the project, enabling Accor to roll out their new ExpressNet wireless service to their customer base on time,” Lesniak said.

Teledex partner Second Rule LLC supplied IP3 NetAccess gateways for the project. One gateway per property was configured and installed by Teledex field technicians, to handle user authentication, network management and other tasks critical to deploying successful wireless Internet service.

Andrew Marshall, the president and CEO of Second Rule LLC, the manufacturer of IP3 NetAccess said, “We are extremely proud to have been selected to provide the gateways by Teledex for this major implementation, and to have such a capable integration partner. IP3 NetAccess provides reliable and stable access to the Internet for any size of deployment, and will serve Motel 6 well for many years to come.”
