The Sheraton Dallas, in partnership with 2020 Mission Critical Facility, is proud to offer "Hyper-Speed" Internet. Hyper-Speed Internet features massive bandwidth over multiple BGP protected Internet links serviced by diverse Tier 1 Internet Service Providers. We have set an impossible precedent by offering 100 GBPS of Internet bandwidth - more than 2,000 times the average hotel or convention center - via our private fiber-optic connectivity to the local Internet Point of Presence. We can also offer private connections directly to the point-of-presence (POP) for over 40 national and international carriers via our abundant, dark fiber pairs.
We haven't stopped there. We've installed new CAT6 cabling to all of our meeting rooms, a 10 GBPS fiber backbone to connect our wiring closets and new network equipment capable of delivering multiple 1 GBPS Ethernet connections to each meeting room. Additionally, we've upgraded our wireless infrastructure in the conference center to include the latest 802.11n standard centrally managed wireless access points. The entire system is designed, installed and supported in-house for maximum flexibility and customer responsiveness.
Perhaps one of the most exciting guest amenities to launch at the Sheraton Dallas is the new guest Internet lounge called the Link@Sheraton. The Link@Sheraton was born out of guests' needs to have a sense of community and belonging while on the road. More than just a lobby space, the Link@Sheraton invites guests to come out of their rooms to enjoy the energy and social opportunities of being on the road. Technology drives the experience by providing twelve complimentary Internet workstations, three printers, wireless Internet, and Ethernet data ports for laptops and printing. The Sheraton Dallas extends the Link@Sheraton experience by creating "mini Links" at sixteen different locations throughout the hotel and conference center. Guests are provided Ethernet data ports for complimentary Internet access and printing at these "mini-Link" locations as well as complimentary wireless Internet access throughout 120,000 square feet of public spaces.
Cisco TelePresence Suite
There is no substitute for meeting face-to-face. However, global travel is not always an option for in-person meetings. Through state-of-the-art technology, the Cisco TelePresence Suite at the Sheraton Dallas, in partnership with TATA Communications, accomplishes a similar face-to-face communication experience. The Cisco TelePresence Suite offers a high-definition, life-sized, immersive video conferencing experience with brilliant guaranteed video and audio quality.
HD TV Connectivity
Connectivity packs allow guests to take full advantage of their room's HD television by quickly and easily connecting their portable electronics to a simple connection hub. Guests are able to connect their iPod®, MP3, laptop, DVD player, Playstation®, Xbox®, digital camera or digital video camera to the HD television, creating an amazing video and audio experience.
As featured in a recent Hotel Business magazine article; guests can order items from our Room Service menu online at http://www.sheratondallasroomservice.com/ and have the food and/or beverages delivered to them in their room, or anywhere in the hotel. Guests can have their order delivered right away or could even order from their computer or smartphone for delivery at a later time.
