NEC, Peninsula Forge VoIP Network
NEC Corporation plans to deploy an integrated voice and data voiceover Internet protocol (VoIP) network throughout the 14 Peninsula Hotels and offices worldwide. According to NEC, this will be the first globally connected VoIP network in the hotel industry. Peninsula Hotels is owned by Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Ltd.
The network was mainly built by upgrading software incorporating NEC's IP networking functionalities into its existing PBX. It will cover hotels in Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, Beijing, New York, Chicago and Beverly Hills.
NEC aims to use the Peninsula VoIP as a model for the hotel industry.
Implementation of VoIP network for the Peninsula Hotels has shown the capabilities of NEC's migration path from PBX to IP, says Kazuo Tsuzuki, associate senior vice president of NEC Corporation.
