Download: White Swan Hotel's Success Story

The Guangzhou White Swan Hotel was opened in 1983. It is located on the historical Shamian Island. The hotel remains an oasis of tranquility from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. White Swan Hotel introduces a new converged solution to improve the mobility, multimedia, and collaboration of personnel and guests.


  • The White Swan Hotel needed to upgrade its network infrastructure at the same time as its renovation.
  • During the implementation the hotel had to keep a stable network without causing any interruptions to operations to ensure their guests remain satisfied.
  • The hotel also wanted to reduce its total cost of ownership (TCO).





  • Thanks to the hotel’s new high-performance network, it is possible to deploy new IT trends, including mobility, multimedia, and collaboration.
  • In addition, the hotel can now rely on having a highly available, easy to manage, and secure infrastructure.                                                                                 
  • Thanks to the introduction of new green IT, the hotel has reduced its operational costs by 30%.                                                                                                                  
  • The hotel network can now be accessed in a secure and reliable way. All users, including the guests, employees and administrators, can be assigned with proper user access rights.

"The hotel’s network has improved tremendously, as it is not only simpler for the IT staff to maintain, but also saves on the general electric energy consumption. Therefore, we consider Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise to be our primary choice for other similar projects."
