Due to the sister hotel relationship between the Chicago Swissôtel and Fairmont, as well as the kind generosity of AT&T, we’re happy to announce that the IETF Network will be available at the Fairmont as well as the Swissôtel! The familiar “ietf-hotel” wireless network will be available in the Fairmont guest rooms as well as the public spaces, such as the lobby, bar, and other gathering points. This network will be supported by the generous donation of a 1 gigabit link from AT&T. In addition, AT&T, together with Comcast, will provide the pair of additional 1 gigabit links that power the main hotel and meeting network at the Swissôtel.
