Hospitality Overview

If you plan to use E-MetroTel FXS 16-port Cards for analog phone connectivity in the Hospitality rooms, you must ensure that the firmware on the cards is at a version level of at least 1.1.33.

Introduction

With a suite of the most powerful hospitality management features available combined with the ability to integrate with the most popular Property Management Systems, the E-MetroTel UCX platform puts total guest management under your control. And when you combine our hospitality application with the hundreds of native UCX features and applications you have a complete hospitality and business solution for both your guests and staff.

The E-MetroTel solution not only supports our own Infinity series XSTIM based IP phones, but also supports a broad variety of legacy digital and IP phones from Nortel, Avaya, and Panasonic, third party SIP phones, traditional analog telephones and our own InfinityOne unified communications/collaboration app for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android devices. InfinityOne can also run directly on a standard browser page; this means that your guests and staff can access our powerful hospitality and telephony features from their own laptop device, meaning there is no requirement to download software - just a simple log in and they are connected.
