The complex is managed by the hotel operator Accor and comprises tree hotels that differ in terms of format and price: Mercure Moscow Paveletskaya 4* hotel, ibis Moscow Centre Bakhrushina hotel, and ADAGIO Moscow Paveletskaya" 4* aparthotel, Russia’s first hotel under this brand. Making part of a single complex, each hotel is independent, and has its own entrance and rooms. To select a provider of infrastructure, the customer invited bids fr om companies that could offer an end-to-end approach to the implementation of all low-current and IT systems, and had previous experience in Accor hotel projects. One of the key requirements was integration with the hotels’ Opera PMS system.
Beltel proved to meet all the requirements and eventually won the contract. The Beltel team accomplished the whole scope of work related to providing building infrastructure. We designed and put in place the following systems: BMS, telephony, LAN and Wi-Fi, SCS, fire warning and evacuation management, automation of gaseous and dry chemical fire suppression, automation of water-based fire suppression, security alarm, security CCTV, and multimedia system.
According to Accor’s requirements, the LAN and Wi-Fi solution comprises two physically separated data networks — one for the guests and one for the administration.
