Tortuga Beach Resort and Spa

Tortuga Beach Resort and Spa

State of the art IP Centralised infrastructure

We designed and built a state-of-the-art centralised AV, IT, resort security and access control management infrastructure. Using the latest fibre optic technology for the luxury Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa in the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of West Africa.

The resort consists of a variety of bars and restaurants, pools and relaxation areas, a beach club, gymnasium, shops, 52 villas, 306 apartments, 14 hotel suites and a state-of-the-art Sol Meliá brand Yhi spa. The £1.1 million network provides multiple services to the resort including: fast internet access, multi-channel high definition TV, video-on-demand, telephony, fire detection, door entry systems and CCTV all controlled by a remotely monitored, centralised management system.

Our experience in implementing large scale AV and IT installations allowed our team to supply and install every element of a complete working unified communications system for the entire resort that is easy to manage and maintain.

By implementing the latest optical fibre technology we delivered The Resort Group’s vision of a future-proofed, high bandwidth capacity network that supplies multiple services to numerous dwellings while maintaining optimum performance.

The system takes advantage of a GPON (Passive Optical Network) which is a point-to-multipoint, fibre-to-the-premises network architecture using passive (non-powered) optical splitters deployed across the resort site. In this way, a single optical fibre will be used to serve multiple premises, reducing the amount of fibre and central office equipment required compared with a point-to-point architecture.
