Vacationers in 20,000 caravans in 66 holiday parks across the UK enjoy exceptional digital experiences through fixed wireless technology
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., August 10, 2023 – Cambium Networks (NASDAQ: CMBM), a leading global provider of networking solutions announced today that Wifinity reached the milestone of 550,000 unique account registrations and in excess of 1 million devices using Cambium Networks’ fixed wireless infrastructure with a major holiday park operator in the UK. Wifinity designed, installed and operates a network that connects guest caravans in 66 of their holiday parks across the UK.
“Holiday parks depend on delivering exceptional guest experiences,” said Kendal Stacey, Director, Parks and Hospitality, Wifinity. “Our “Direct to Van” connectivity solution leverages Cambium Networks’ fixed wireless infrastructure. And it has made a big impact.”
In a recent survey, 53% of respondents stated that reliable Wi-Fi is now vital when choosing a holiday park, and 42% would pay more to ensure they have it. In addition, 45% would not book a holiday park if reviews indicated poor Wi-Fi. Download the full survey report here.
This new system replaces an older outdoor Wi-Fi mesh network that simply couldn’t keep up with the need for streaming services and multiple devices per family. Buffering and inconsistent connectivity caused frustration and increased negative reviews. Wifinity’s new solution uses Cambium Networks’ multi-gigabit cnWave™ 60 GHz mmWave fixed wireless technology that can be configured in point-to-point links, point-to-multipoint distribution, and distributed mesh architectures to support reliable infrastructure for Wi-Fi access points in the caravans and across the resort. The solution in all 66 parks is centrally monitored and managed by Wifinity via Cambium Networks’ cnMaestro™ cloud management system.
