LeoNovus is currently ramping its SMART Media™ Platform and distributed cloud services into the hospitality market. The platform delivers a full suite of interactive in-room infotainment, which provides just-in-time services and updates such as in-room dining, promotional advertising and real-time guest information. Its newly designed easy-to-use interface with a full browser also allows for guest access to email and Facebook, or sourcing local hometown news and entertainment.
Additionally, the platform is enhanced by LeoNovus' proprietary dark-core processing technologies that optimize an internal network for purposes of adding new revenue streams from cloud services. LeoNovus is currently operating a geo-dispersed distributed data center with locations in the cities of Stratford, Ottawa and Sunnyvale, CA. Adding hotels from the hospitality sector onto the network brings distributed cloud services into large urban areas, which benefits this service by being close to where the data is located for companies that want real-time analytics with faster delivery to mobile devices. This capability, as well as the ability to have built in data redundancy across geo-dispersed end points, delivers premium, cost-effective cloud services.
