The Guangzhou White Swan Hotel was opened in 1983. It appeared on the top of the list of "China's 50 best hotels" in 1996 and in 2008 it was named "China's best well-known hotel'.

The hotel was also influenced by the high quality of professional services Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise proposed to them.

The hotel’s network has improved tremendously, as it is not only simpler for the IT staff to maintain, but also saves on the general electric energy consumption. Therefore, we consider Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise to be our primary choice for other similar projects.
