MOUNT WASHINGTON HOTEL

The Historic wiring system

The Historic wiring system

The Mount Washington Hotel (now owned by the Omni Hotel chain is one of the first modern hotels built in 1902. The hotel was also the first to have a PBX switchboard, but times had since changed. Wiring simple things like a Cat 3 or 5 is very difficult to do here, and the cash register terminals are the priority. Wireless is provided to the visitors. The Hotel has since upgraded to an Avaya system, but mostly is a digital or analog setup, due to the wiring restrictions.
