Trend #3: PAN – Provides The Guest a Near to Home Experience
The third and last trend from HITEC this year is about Personal Area Network (PAN).
PAN is a secure, dedicated WiFi network giving the guest access to their own private network during the hotel stay. PAN is delivered through the hotel´s WiFi network and allows the guest to use and control their own devices and content in a secure way. The idea is to create a similar network to what you have at home with your personal SSID and security settings.
PAN makes Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) possible in its true meaning and simplifies the process for the guest to display their own content from a smaller device directly to the hotel TV in your room.
PAN is an intelligent solution that is already on the market and the hospitality industry would be ideal for it in order to offer the guests that near to home experience.
