The Grand Hyatt hotel in Singapore is spending billions of dollars on an advanced Cisco network and staff training to offer guests high-tech office facilities. The Grand Hyatt, which employs several hundred staff on various shifts, plans to use e-learning to provide employees with up-to-date and self-paced training. All public places in the hotel, plus staff areas, will have full Internet access. Content for the training is currently being put in place. It will be the world's first hotel to enable companies holding events to create private corporate networks with optimized security by using a centralized, self-service, on-site sub-server room.
