Download: Souq Waqif Boutique Hotel Success Story

Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels are ten luxury 5-star small to mid-sized hotels nestled in the impressive backdrop of the historic Souq Waqif. Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels centralized their voice and data network to provide their guests with non-stop connectivity.


  • Initially, each hotel had a separate system. With the implementation of new hotels in the Souq Waqif, it became necessary to have a centralized voice and data network
  • Wi-Fi access is also expected by the customers of the hotels. Therefore, fast and reliable connections needed to be provided
  • It was also very important to take into account the expansion of the existing network in order to provide evolutionary solutions




  • The reliability of the new system means that management and support is much easier than it was in the past
  • Only two IT people are now needed to manage the whole network, which provides sustainable savings in the maintenance costs
  • Wi-Fi access is now provided to all the customers of the hotels, everywhere and all the time

"I had worked with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise in a previous job in Africa and I already knew that Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise products are much more reliable than the competition. They also know hospitality needs very well and have strong experience in this field."
