ZyXEL Powers Regents Inn Wireless Network


“ From the very start, our goal was to minimise the costs of supporting our communications. However, we could have never believed that we’d be able to rip and replace our entire infrastructure, and start again with a state-of-the-art system...and still be in a position to eliminate costs.” Adam South, IT Manager, Regent Ins
