Multi-year Deal Encompasses Deployment and Management of Advanced IPTV System, Digital Signage, Voice, Internet Broadband and Pay TV Platforms
Singapore, 5 July 2010 – StarHub today announced that it has been selected by Park Regis Singapore to deploy a comprehensive IT and info-communications infrastructure system that will enable hotel guests to experience the next generation in information, communications and entertainment services throughout the property.
The 203-room Park Regis Singapore is the first hotel to open in Singapore under the well-known Park Regis brand. It is owned and operated by Staywell Hospitality Group, one of the largest independently-owned hotel management groups in Asia-Pacific, with a network of over 25 hotels in the region including properties located in Singapore, Dubai, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland.
Under the new multi-year, million-dollar deal, StarHub will not only provide structured cabling, network infrastructure and unified communications system to all hotel rooms and backend operational facilities, it will also provide a sophisticated in-room IPTV system where guests will be able to access a wide range of Movie-on-Demand services and StarHub TV channels with a comprehensive electronic programme guide. Guests will also be able to quickly obtain key information and services such as Flight Information, Singapore Maps, Express Checkouts and more. A Digital Signage service has been integrated into the IPTV system so that any information on promotions, activities, news and events around Singapore can be broadcast simultaneously from a centralised office.
In addition to the above services, StarHub will supply Park Regis Singapore with full high-quality Internet broadband and IDD services.
Mr Tan Tong Hai, Chief Operating Officer for StarHub, said, “Park Regis is a well-known brand in the hospitality industry across the world.
