AC Hotels Case Study

AC Hotels 
is 
a 
leading hotel 
chain 
in 
Spain 
with 
more
 than
 80
 hotels 
throughout 
Europe 
and 
have further 
international 
expansion 
plans 
in
to 
Central 
Europe.



 

The 
Challenge


AC
 Hotels 
has 
two
 data
 centres
 in
 Madrid
 that 
need
 to 
be 
connected
 together
 via 
Ethernet. 

One
 data 
centre 
is 
located 
at 
their 
HQ 
and 
the
 other 
in
 a
 neutral 
data
 centre
 facility.


 

The Interoute 
solution

Interoute
 proposed
 the
 use 
of 
its 
MAN
 (Metro 
Area
 Network)
 in 
Madrid.
 
The
 neutral 
data 
centre
 facility
 was
 already
 on
 the 
network.
 So
 connectivity  
was 
achieved
 by
 extending
 the 
MAN
 to 
AC
 Hotels
 HQ.



Interoute
 also 
provided
 Internet 
Access 
to 
both 
data 
centres 
and 
implemented
 load
 balancing
 to ensure
 maximum
 efficiency.

Results


To 
select 
the 
appropriate 
provider, 
the
 customer 
involved
 a
 consultancy
firm Doxa 
Consulting, experts 
in 
telecommunication 
projects.
 They 
were 
impressed 
with
 Interoute's 
ideas 
and
 confirmed
 that Interoute 
was 
the 
best 
technical
 solution.

As AC Hotels completes
 its 
expansion
 plans,
their 
IT 
Manager
 considers 
Interoute as 
the perfect
 partner 
to 
provide 
international 
VPN
 services 
to 
connect 
their
 sites.
