iBAHN, a worldwide leader in digital entertainment and Internet solutions for the hospitality and meeting industries, announces that it has signed a 36-month contract with the Rocco Forte Hotels group to deliver broadband services for hotel guests and back office staff.

The renewed contract will start in August and will cover all current and certain future properties, including Abu Dhabi (opening in September), Cairo, Luxor, Jeddah and Marrakech. As well as fixed broadband, iBAHN is also rolling out enterprise grade WiFi across the Rocco Forte Hotels portfolio in the coming months. Rocco Forte Hotels is the first group to maximize the opportunities of iBAHN’s high speed, secure network by harnessing its power for back office services as well as for guest use, which means reduced costs as well as consistency of service across the group.

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 vastly reduces the possibility of guest data theft, eliminates the ability to steal guest data and provides total separation between different wireless users.

Emmanuel Clavé, corporate IT director of Rocco Forte Hotels, said, “We have a strong and successful partnership with iBAHN, built on trust and understanding of our needs. As we continue our expansion, we are sure that iBAHN will provide exceptional quality that is essential for guest satisfaction and the smooth running of our complex back-office services.”

Graeme Powell, managing director iBAHN EMEA, said, “Rocco Forte Hotels is well known for the high quality of service they offer their guests. I am delighted that they have chosen to extend their relationship with iBAHN even further and we look forward to continuing to demonstrate the value we can bring to both their guest WiFi services  and their back office support.”
