Guest Wi-Fi is the number one ranked property amenity among travelers, and with the proliferation of devices and streaming demands, network expectations continue to rise. Robust and dependable connectivity has become a top priority for most hotel brands.
As the manager of a senior living property or skilled nursing facility, you’re focused on doing everything you can to ensure your residents are comfortable in your community. One of the more streamlined ways to accomplish that is to offer your residents television services that mimic the experiences they’ve grown accustomed to in recent years.
Developers need to future proof their buildings. The pandemic has left an indelible mark on how and where we work, play, and live - a recent NMHC survey showed that over 91% of apartment residents say high-speed internet is an important factor when considering an apartment with nearly 75% stating that Wi-Fi should be pre-installed. According to that same survey, an additional 69% of residents indicated that community Wi-Fi ranked as an important amenity.
As the manager of a property in the Hospitality or Healthcare industry, you’re focused on delivering great experiences to every person who passes through your doors. One of the best ways you can do that is by investing in up-to-date data, video, and voice solutions that give guests access to things they’ve grown accustomed to in recent years—such as Wi-Fi and over-the-top content.
TV in your hotel room hasn’t always been a given. For years, the guest room television wasn’t a high priority for many hotel operators unless the property had free HBO. While consumer technology quickly advanced, from picture and performance to over-the-top (OTT) capabilities, the hotel TV remained stagnant, taking years to even bring high definition (HD) to the guest room. However, the television is a vital part of the guest experience, and you need comparable video services to what your guests are accustomed to at home to make them feel comfortable.

Innovation is happening all around us, and that impact can be seen across industries. From artificial intelligence (AI) to 3-D printing, countless breakthroughs have changed the way we live—improving efficiency in our daily routines and also in the workplace.

The exponential growth in connected devices has put an immense strain on the complex infrastructures of commercial properties in recent years, especially multifamily housing complexes and senior living communities. Add in a pandemic to accelerate the need for hybrid workspaces and virtual communication, and many properties have experienced a technological nightmare.
As a real estate and technology professional, when I had the opportunity to tour a brand-new multifamily apartment complex, I was excited to see the types of property technology, also called “proptech,” that the developer installed and what new tech would be available to the residents in this beautiful, well-constructed building. As I entered into a model unit, I was impressed with the FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment) finishes, the high quality, and the attention to detail of the unit layout. It was easy for me to envision the elevated experience anyone would encounter while calling this place home.
