Kensington Close Hotel

Previously, the hotel had low grade broadband connectivity, a poor wireless system and a traditional phone system. They planned to have a huge refurbishment adding more than 300 bedrooms. They needed to upgrade their entertainment and wireless offer to reflect their 4 star status.

The existing network was flat with no core and had only standard network switches with no management.


SysGroup proposed mapping the existing infrastructure and planning a new one to be laid down until switchover. The new network would have:

  • HP core with 2x HP5400 switches and 70 fibre runs
  • 70 HP2600 access switches and 200 HP wireless access points
  • A pair of WatchGuard 5 series firewalls for complete availability
Hotel Living Room


The hotel now has:

  • Premium guest Wi-Fi access
  • A VoIP telephone system and IP televisions in all rooms
  • Corporate conferencing for their customers with high bandwidth services up to 100Mbps per second.
  • The work SysGroup implemented has led to an additional £20,000 plus a month in revenue.


We feel we have been very well looked after by SysGroup, who have proposed and delivered the right solutions for us, and who are available to us for support around the clock.
