The Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel Combines Savvy Service With Top Technology

TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 02/07/14 -- The way people do business is forever changing. From the typewriters of yore to the video-conferencing of today, communication methods evolve as fast as business deals. Believing that meetings should be equally innovative, the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel has launched a new promotion to offer meeting planners the best event space in Toronto, Marriott's cutting-edge Meeting Services App and, to tie it all together, a complimentary iPad Mini.

Groups booking 75 cumulative rooms on specific "need dates" at this conference hotel in Toronto can take advantage of the new meetings promotion and get a glimpse of how meetings will be conducted in the future. One giant leap into that future is Marriott's brand-new Meeting Services App. Any web-enabled device -- including the complimentary iPad Mini that eligible meeting organizers will receive -- can access the app, which lets meeting planners make real-time requests. So it's more coffee, a thermostat adjustment or almost anything else, the planner can send a quick text and have the issue resolved without ever leaving the room.

The technology is just one advantage, however, to this downtown Toronto event venue. With 17 meeting rooms and 18,000 square feet of pillar-free function space, the hotel is ideal for groups of all sizes and needs. The Grand Ballroom, for example, offers 7,952 square feet of open, fresh space hemmed in by generous 15-foot ceilings. Such a space, which can welcome up to 850 people in theater-style seating, feels elegant while remaining highly functional. There is even a more private area on the second floor with four smaller, more intimate meetings rooms, nestled away from the hustle and bustle. Three of the meeting rooms, even have beautiful views of the historic Church of the Holy Trinity from their floor to ceiling window which ensures creative juices continue to flow during a long day of meetings. Whichever room a group occupies, however, the hotel's high-tech features, exceptional catering and superior service promise to make the meeting nothing short of perfect.

Guests of this luxury hotel in Toronto can also look forward to a comfortable stay after working hours. Located next to the Eaton Centre and close by the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the hotel puts guests within walking distance of the theatre, entertainment and financial districts for an experience that sublimely merges business with pleasure.

Planners are encouraged to learn more about the meetings promotion, which is available only during select dates, by visiting http://ipadpromotion.marriott.com/.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
