Hilton Garden Inn, Budapest


Upgraded hotel, upgraded TV distribution

When Hilton Garden Inn underwent a major refurbishment programme in 2019, it wasn’t just the decor that needed significant improvements.

A major upgrade to the TV distribution was required, to meet the entertainment demands of the hotel’s many international guests.

Two TRIAX headends were combined to deliver the full array of international channels requested by hotel management, supplied by three TRIAX satellite dishes on the roof and distributed around the hotel’s coax cable network.

Engineers from TRIAX partner Pentolt Kft. designed a twin headend setup, installed in a rack to make the best use of the limited space in the hotel facilities room.

“Together with TRIAX we conceived a solution specifically for Hilton’s needs. It was implemented quickly and without any hassle,” said Pentolt’s project manager of the installation.

“TRIAX is our preferred partner for all our TV distribution needs. Their reliable products are well suited to the demands of hotels like Hilton Garden Inn.”

Agape Aparthotel


No more WiFi nightmares

To maximise guests’ comfort at Agape Aparthotels in Budapest, a range of amenities is offered in order to truly deliver a home from home experience.

One amenity above all is of critical importance – free WiFi.

With an existing service that was difficult to manage and the cause of some guest dissatisfaction, Agape turned to TRIAX to overhaul its current setup and install the Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution.

After a rapid and disruption-free installation, the result is a fully managed network over coax cables, with reliable WiFi coverage in every apartment.

Agape Aparthotel offers over 60 serviced apartments of various types, located in a contemporary building at the very heart of Budapest, Hungary.

“It’s very important our guests have a free WiFi service that can be relied upon. The TRIAX solution was installed quickly without any disturbance, and has increased our satisfaction ratings. We no longer get any complaints about the internet.”

— Balázs Radó, Managing Director, Agape Aparthotel

Fast and reliable

For a home away from home in the centre of Budapest, Apage Aparthotel is one of the most popular serviced apartment destinations for visitors to the Hungarian capital.

Yet it was clear to guests, and Agape’s owners, that the existing WiFi service did not match the high quality of the apartments or the other amenities offered.

TRIAX was able to offer a solution that both sent network signals around the building’s existing coax infrastructure – ideal, since the building owner would not permit any structural modifications – and sent a reliable WiFi signal that fully covered each and every apartment, including larger ones with 3 rooms.

“Installing a TRIAX WiFi end point in each apartment really changed the game for us,” explains Balázs Radó, Agape’s Managing Director. “Each one was installed in just 15 minutes, so we didn’t need to have any apartments out of service. Our guest WiFi signal is now much stronger and more reliable.”

  • Fast, reliable WiFi covering every apartment
  • Outage periods and blackspots eliminated, even in 3-roomed apartments
  • Improved online ratings
  • No more customer dissatisfaction with WiFi

Before: a crowded WiFi environment

After: full, reliable access to the guest network with a TRIAX end point in each apartment
