Wireless Installations in Hospitality and Retail 
Hospitality & Retail
Most hotels, restaurants, and retail spaces now have a WiFi network for internal business processes and guest use.  Wireless is mission-critical for inventory and order processing, and guests will expect reliable wireless Internet access. The speed and integrity of the WiFi network is key for many businesses, and will only become more vitally important to the business in the future.

The wireless network should be professionally designed and installed with appropriate regard to wireless coverage and physical security. Due to highly publicized security breaches in retail, WAPs should be locked to prevent unauthorized access. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) requirement 9.1.3 states that the operator must "Restrict physical access to wireless access points, gateways, and handheld devices."

  • Placing WAPs behind counters or above ceiling tiles does not adequately "restrict physical access" to protect the WAP.
  • These standards apply even if the retailer does not process credit cards wirelessly!

Hotel WiFi is very common and guests expect to find excellent WiFi service in all rooms, lobbies, and meeting areas. Oberon offers a number of solutions for securing and protecting access points in guest rooms (Model 1017), or recessing the access point in the ceiling in architecturally sensitive lobbies and public spaces (Model 1040).
