Mayfair Hotels & Resorts are synonymous with 5-star excellence in hospitality and being able to offer authentic hospitality, thoughtful service, lavish accommodation and world class facilities in the most exquisite setting. The spellbinding Mayfair Lake Resort, Raipur, is located amid lush greenery and overlooks the gorgeous Jhangh Lake with sweeping panoramic views all around the property. Mayfair Lake Resort wanted to deploy a telecom infrastructure with distributed architecture.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise delivered the communications infrastructure to enable us to provide our guests with a unique user experience, as well as facilitate our digital transformation.

Mr. Souvagya Mohapatra, Executive Director, Mayfair Lake Resort


The Mayfair Lake Resort receives torrential rain nine months of the year, attracting humidity, an opponent of technology. The resort spans a large area of land, requiring a lot of copper cabling for communications services. Mayfair wanted to minimize this outdated technology and install an industrial grade server to withstand harsh weather. The new system also needed to cater to the use of Hybrid extensions where some legacy technology would be supported alongside the new IP telephony network. Mayfair also wanted to add mobility based on 3G/4G as deploying DECT and Vo-WLAN was not practical.
