The rise of Legacy’s latest masterpiece, the Leonardo, is the very definition of living in the lap of luxury. Residents, guests and visitors can expect a luxury coffee shop, premium business and conference centres, extravagant apartments and penthouses and so much more all while being constantly connected!
Aside from the flawless architecture and elegant interior, the luxurious 234m high building is fully equipped with the latest technology. One of the most important technical requirements was that every inch of the building has Wi-Fi connectivity. To meet this demand eComX turned to the UniFi SDN Wi-Fi network connectivity solution from Ubiquiti Networks.
With UniFi technology throughout the building, residents, guests and visitors will be able to seamlessly connect to the high-performance Wi-Fi network, whether it be from the parking in the basement or at the top-level floor from the penthouses. Once connected, residents, guests and visitors will be able to roam freely within the building and enjoy uninterrupted connectivity, even in the elevators!

eComX has not only supplied seamless Wi-Fi connectivity but are also responsible for the security of the networks, as security is always a very important requirement at Legacy hotels. This is all centrally managed with VLANS and different SSID’s. Client isolation is enabled to protect the guests from each other, this is done on-device, switch and firewall level.
This state-of-the-art network was envisioned by Thomas Klingler, Group Financial Manager at Legacy Hotel Management Services. Thomas entrusted eComX with the design and implementation of the network as they are experts in enterprise and hospitality ICT solutions and has been a trusted partner of Legacy for almost 20 years. Trusting them not only to deliver based on their technical abilities but also for their experience and knowledge that aesthetic appeal plays an important role in the hospitality industry.
