The Mountain Lake Lodge Case Study
Turnkey Campground Wireless with 24/7 Support
With the impact of technology on communication, productivity, entertainment, and the increasing need for mobility, WiFi has become more important than ever keeping us connected at both work and play, no matter where we are. With that in mind, The Mountain Lake Lodge wanted to give their campers an at-home Wi-Fi experience of exceptional quality. A robust, secure & scalable cloud managed solution, that would be easy to maintain, and 100% supported. They wanted the resort to be under one network architecture & vision, with advanced enterprise features, including a splash page for guest login. They wanted to offer free basic internet as well as a premium tier where they could charge for enhanced bandwidth that would allow Guests to have an “at home experience” with ability to support Live TV and Audio streaming services, Video Conference Calls, multi-media devices including Apple TV and Roku, as well as other expected wireless experiences.
Having a centrally managed system that can be remotely monitored and supported was critical. Having one company to survey, design, architect, install and support 100% 24/7 was the goal. A comprehensive enterprise-class wireless solution was required and Sigmawifi was the answer.
