Telkonet, Inc., a leader in providing in-building broadband access over existing electrical wiring, announced that it has received a contract to provide high-speed Internet access to all self-managed WorldMark by Wyndham timeshare properties, a total of 50 additional properties totaling over 4,000 rooms.

WorldMark by Wyndham is a subsidiary of Wyndham Vacation Ownership, one of the world’s largest vacation ownership companies. The full-scale deployment decision was made after a successful trial of the Telkonet iWire System™ at six WorldMark properties last year. Telkonet’s system proved to be a reliable, hands-off solution, meeting WorldMark’s key performance criteria. Telkonet’s system can also support future applications that WorldMark may require such as voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), energy management and video on demand (VoD).

Six WorldMark properties are currently using the Telkonet iWire System to deliver high-speed Internet access, with convenient wired Internet access at any electrical outlet in the rooms and wireless access at the pool and lobby areas. In addition to supporting broadband Internet access, Telkonet’s powerful platform is supporting billing capabilities. The user Web-interface provided by Telkonet enables a number of services developed by Goodwell Technologies to maximize the owner experience while traveling.

Over the course of the trial period, WorldMark’s management was impressed by the take rate generated by providing high-speed Internet access to its owners, especially since the service offering was not yet proactively marketed to its owners. They were also pleased that users found Telkonet’s system to be simple and straightforward to get online without needing any technical support from timeshare management.

Steve Townsend, WorldMark’s director of resort services, said, “We are extremely happy with our choice of Telkonet for the whole system. Our tests-to-date have shown the system to be the most trouble-free, dependable system that I have worked with. We have enjoyed working with the Telkonet team and we are looking forward to the rollout.”
