Nextivity and World Cinema (WCI) announced this week that they’re teaming up to bring enterprise-grade in-building cellular connectivity to communities and destination properties in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. WCI, which brings technology and services to guest-centric properties, will now offer Nextivity’s Cel-Fi products through ImpruviX. The ImpruviX platform is a full suite of custom wireless connectivity solutions for hotels, student housing, senior living communities, luxury multi-dwelling units (MDUs), master-planned communities, and health care facilities.
WCI currently serves more than 4,200 hotels and 120 student properties. The company initially launched ImpruviX to bring enterprise-grade wireless connectivity to B2B and B2C customers. Now, the WCI ImpruviX solutions have been designed for the lowest total cost of ownership and are sensitive to capital value. Given that Nextivity’s Cel-Fi products optimize cellular coverage in enterprise, small business, residential, and mobile settings, WCI can bring customized solutions that line up with customers’ in-building cellular connectivity needs and budget constraints.
“We believe that reliable connectivity will continue to be vital in optimizing the value of any property where guests visit or residents live,” WCI EVP and Chief Commercial Officer Robert Grosz said in a statement. “In-building cellular coverage, in particular, will increasingly play an important role in acquiring and retaining high occupancy rates in all communities and destination properties. Our partnership with Nextivity ensures that ImpruviX solutions feature the most advanced technology for cellular coverage and enables us to deliver future-proof solutions that cost-effectively meet our customers’ evolving wireless connectivity needs.”
With Nextivity’s Cel-Fi products, customer can expect to see issues like dropped calls, poor voice quality and low data throughput due to weak cell signals be solved.
Cel-Fi products are self-configuring, carrier-approved, and network safe. They leverage the IntelliBoost chipset to deliver the industry’s highest gain at the lowest cost per square foot. There are 200 carriers worldwide that have authorized Cel-Fi for use.
“The world is changing and cellular app-based solutions have begun to dominate in new ways, whether talking touchless e-pay solutions or new security-based applications,” Nextivity CEO Werner Sievers said in a release. “Valued partners like World Cinema share our commitment to delivering an exceptional digital experience with the best technology.
“This partnership will extend the reach of Cel-Fi products and create new opportunities for us to work together to solve the cellular coverage challenges faced by many industries – including hospitality, health care, and commercial real estate. The Cel-Fi QUATRA line offers the flexibility and connectivity these industries are looking for within their current budget parameters.”
