Time spent dockside just got a bit more relaxing for customers of a local marina. With the help of TBNG Consulting, a Connecticut-based information technology consulting firm, Essex Island Marina can now offer their customers Wi-Fi service.
The marina, located on the Connecticut River in Essex, CT, has 130 slips spanning four acres and serves both permanent and transient boat owners. The owners strive to improve their marina experience and keeping activities flowing to meet the needs of their guests which, increasingly, rely on Wi-Fi connectivity.
“Our guests have stopped asking ‘Do you have Wi-Fi?’ and started asking ‘What is your password?’” said Dawn Schieferdecker, Marina Manager. “Adults and children both ask – a testament to the impact this service has toward increasing the quality time that families are able to spend together enjoying their boat. As much as our island is an escape from the ‘daily grind’, we recognize that one needs peace of mind to relax and, for us, Wi-Fi was one of the ways to achieve that.”
TBNG’s Marina Wi-Fi Package provides reliable, high-speed Internet access by combining high performance 802.11N wireless networking with a secure firewall solution, which is ideal for the marina industry. Using an existing high-speed Internet connection, TBNG offers a turn-key solution that provides proper cabling, site engineering and Fortinet technologies that provide safe ands secure service to clients dockside.
