World’s first 5G hotel in China
China’s InterContinental Shenzhen, Shenzhen Telecom and Huawei signed a strategic cooperation agreement to create the world’s first 5G smart hotel. By introducing the hotel industry’s first end-to-end 5G network with integrated terminals and cloud applications, the project will enable InterContinental Shenzhen to provide guests with the ultimate innovative luxury experience and open the door for the digital transformation of entire hotel industry through 5G technology.
For the project’s kick-off ceremony, Shenzhen Telecom and Huawei jointly deployed a 5G Digital Indoor System on the hotel’s first floor and in the presidential suites. In the hotel lobby, guests can access the 5G network through CPEs or their smartphones to experience high speed 5G downloads and uploads. Service efficiency is improved with 5G intelligent robots that provide services including guest information, destination guidance, and goods delivery. The presidential suites covered by the new network provide guests with 5G hotel services such as cloud VR rowing machines, cloud games and 4K movies. An experience zone that was built for today’s ceremony featured the world’s fastest mobile download rate and uniquely versatile telecommunications and entertainment guest experience.
