A hotel supply centre will be required for hotels to receive the necessary security information from security agencies, and to provide secure communications for hotels.

“We are excited to continue to invest in this region and provide the world with the most advanced technology and supply infrastructure to help meet the demands of the growing global hotel and hospitality industry.”
