SMC Networks announced it has joined Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG), a global trade association that fosters, through collaboration and partnership among hoteliers and technology providers, the development of next-generation solutions.

SMC Networks joins HTNG following the recent release of its new TigerAccess Extended Ethernet Switch and TigerAccess Extended Ethernet CPE, an affordable VDSL2 extended Ethernet solution that is designed to enable the deployment of high-speed voice, video, and data access over existing category 1, 2 or 3 wiring in multi-unit environments such as hotels, apartments, dormitories, etc.

The addition of several soon-to-be-released hospitality-centric add-ons will further strengthen the family of offerings that SMC is deploying into the hospitality space.

"We are excited to announce our membership with HTNG as it provides us with a new forum to demonstrate SMC’s technology and will enable us to grow the awareness of the value that our solutions deliver to the hospitality industry," Keith Alexis, VP of sales and marketing at SMC Networks, said in a statement.

"The addition of prominent technology companies such as SMC Networks to our membership is critical in fulfilling our mission to facilitate the development of technology models for the hospitality industry that foster innovation, improve the guest experience, and increase the effectiveness and efficiency of hotels," Douglas Rice, EVP and CEO of HTNG, said in a statement.
