A hotel what has wireless connection is the Glasgow Marriott Hotel. Modem Points A wireless modem is a type of modem which connects to a wireless network instead of to the telephone system. The Seatown Hotel could use modems to stop too many wires leading to the telephone. An advantage of a modem is that it is not that expensive. A disadvantage of a modem is that there is limited availability. A hotel that has modem points in its conference centre is The Crowne Plaza London-Shoreditch hotel. Air-Conditioning Air conditioning is the cooling and dehumidification of indoor air for thermal comfort. The Seatown Hotel could use air-conditioning in their conference centre on hot days. They could turn on the air-conditioning when the room is too hot to make people more comfortable. An advantage of air-conditioning is that it has good air distribution. A disadvantage of air-conditioning is that it can be noisy. A hotel that uses air-conditioning is The Lowry Hotel. Video Conferencing A video conference is a set of interactive telecommunication technologies which allow two or more locations to interact via two-way video and audio transmissions simultaneously. The Seatown Hotel could use video conferencing so that customers using the conference centre could interact with businesses across the country. ...read more.
