Vertel, Purple provide Wi-Fi for 'smart parks'

Reflections Holiday Parks has rolled out $1 million worth of Wi-Fi infrastructure at its Forster Beach, Seal Rocks, Scotts Head and Hawks Nest holiday parks in NSW.

“Proper connectivity is important for our guests, who expect to be able to keep in touch with family and friends, stream video from sites like Netflix and more,” said CEO Steve Edmonds.

“The Group has invested a $316,837 government loan, with a total investment of $1 million over the next five years.”

Reflections called on Vertel to provide a connectivity solution. Vertel in turn worked with its analytics partner, Purple Wi-Fi, to present a comprehensive solution.

“We delivered an adaptable Wi-Fi infrastructure with analytics that meets Reflections’ requirements now and into the future,” said Vertel’s Commercial Director, Tony Hudson.

Emergency management was part of the mix, with the Wi-Fi infrastructure providing communication to isolated locations such as the Reflections park at Seal Rocks.

“Vertel has provided a mix of both fibre and fixed wireless connectivity services to the parks. Fixed wireless especially is ideal for hard-to-reach places — in effect we can go where others often can’t, cost-effectively,” said Hudson.

“Our innovative network software allows Reflections to offer high-performing connectivity across all of its parks and manage that connectivity centrally, greatly simplifying network management and futureproofing the infrastructure.”

Purple Wi-Fi’s analytics enable Reflections to capture data on its customers, to better understand its clientele and tailor services to their needs.
