Better WiFi for campsites with TRIAX Ethernet over Coax
In summer 2018, TRIAX rolled out its Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution to the huts at Saltviks Camping, Sweden.
Each and every hut now enjoys a fast and reliable WiFi signal, overcoming many of the problems encountered with the previous service such as intermittent signals and patchy coverage.
The fully managed network runs over the coax cabling that was already in place around the site, resulting in time and money saved in installation.
“It’s critical these days for our guests to be able to surf online and access their TV streaming services from home, when they stay with us. We need to make sure the WiFi we offer is up to the task, and the TRIAX solution has helped us to greatly improve our service for the 2019 season.”Joakim Ulvhammar, General Manager, Saltviks Camping
Situated in northern Bohuslän, Sweden, Saltviks Camping hosts over 300 caravans and plots, alongside 22 huts.
Sun, sea and streaming
But it’s not just the nature and top-drawer entertainment at Saltviks that their campers appreciate.
For many guests, particularly those staying for longer periods or coming from neighbouring Norway or Denmark, it’s just as important to be able to access high quality, reliable WiFi that keeps all the family happy and tuned in to their favourite TV streaming services.
With the booking rate for their 22 huts lower than their caravan spots, Saltviks Camping needed to add a first-rate WiFi solution they could offer in the huts alongside their existing amenities.
TRIAX, alongside installation partner Electronic Equipment in Tanum, delivered the WiFi solution to all huts. It greatly improves the service they can offer their guests, resulting in:
- Fast, reliable WiFi covering each corner of every hut
- Outage periods and blackspots eliminated
- More satisfied guests using the service
- Increased likelihood of repeat bookings
“It was important to find a solution that would cover all the huts with a signal the guests could rely on. The TRIAX solution was easy and quick to install and simple to configure. It turns out, the installation runs even more smoothly since the coax cables themselves were also from TRIAX!”Stefan Arvidsson, TRIAX Partner. Owner, Electronic Equipment Tanum.
