Davidson Hotel Company Awards SolutionInc and AFL Telecommunications with High-Speed Internet Business



    HALIFAX and DUNCAN, SC, June 17 /CNW/ - SolutionInc Limited
(TSX-VEN:STL), a global leader in Internet management solutions, and
AFL Telecommunications, a leading telecommunications product and services
supplier, announced today that Davidson Hotel Company, owner and operator of
33 hotels in the continental US, plans to install SolutionInc's high speed
Internet system in several properties. Davidson's Crowne Plaza Hotel -
Greenspoint in Houston, Texas, recently replaced its Internet system with
SolutionInc's award winning SolutionIP(TM) Internet system.
    Acquired by Davidson Hotel Company in 2007, the Crowne Plaza Houston
North Greenspoint is in the final stages of a $12 million renovation which
includes extensive technology upgrades throughout the property. Ron Hardin -
IT Director for Davidson Hotel Company comments, "We are extremely pleased to
be working with AFL Telecommunications and SolutionInc to provide our hotel
guests a reliable, stable and easy to access high speed internet service.
AFL's team simplified the process of managing and implementing an extensive
upgrade."
    The Crowne Plaza Houston North - Greenspoint is ideally located near
Houston's corporate headquarter corridor and a host of recreation and shopping
options. The 334 room property meets the needs of both leisure and business
travelers with extensive on-site amenities and more than 17,000 square feet of
meeting space.
    SolutionIP(TM) is the Internet connectivity and billing management
platform for the entire facility, including property-wide wireless services
and wired access in the conference facilities and approximately one third of
the guest rooms. "The SolutionIP(TM) software not only enhances the internet
experience throughout the property, but also supports the ability for property
management to provide custom HSIA solutions," said Clark Squires, Senior Vice
President Sales and Partnerships of SolutionInc. "We are very pleased to be
working closely with AFL and Davidson Hotel Company to provide our service to
their quality hotel brands."
    In addition to the installation of SolutionIP(TM) as the HSIA
connectivity and billing platform, AFL Telecommunications was also responsible
for delivering other technology upgrades including a property wide mesh
wireless solution, wired network upgrades and installation of a bandwidth
shaping and traffic management solution. "AFL's goal is to help leading
hospitality companies like Davidson Hotel Group simplify their approach to
property technology by providing a single-source solution. The Houston project
is a showcase for how AFL's team is able to support the entire process -
everything from site survey to implementation and training of the hotel staff
on their new system," stated Kent Brown, Director - Access Solutions, AFL
Telecommunications.
    AFL Telecommunications is an established market leader in providing
fiber-optic based telecommunications products and complete engineering,
furnishing and installation (EF&I) services to telecom and enterprise
segments. AFL was responsible for integrating, installing and deploying
SolutionInc's SolutionIP(TM) system.
    In addition to the Crowne Plaza Houston Greenspoint, AFL is supporting
technology upgrades at other Davidson Hotel Company properties, including
integration of SolutionInc's SolutionIP(TM) system, at the conference and
meeting spaces at the Hyatt Regency & Spa located on Goat Island, Newport
Rhode Island.
