Cox Business hooks up CityCenter in Vegas
Cox Business and Hospitality Network, the latter of which is a Cox affiliate in Las Vegas, recently announced the provisioning of entertainment and business services through CityCenter’s advanced fiber-optic network.
Cox Business/Hospitality Network designed and built two 10 gigabit fiber-optic circuits to a telecommunications junction room at CityCenter that feeds Cox services to various endpoints at the 67-acre urban destination.
The technology company is utilizing IPTV to provide 230 channels of domestic and international television content – in standard-definition and high-definition – as well as video-on-demand services to guest rooms at CityCenter. Nearly 75 of these channels provide commercial-free digital music for listeners of all ages and interests. Guests can even check their flight departures via the system.
CityCenter is an urban metropolis between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. CityCenter is a joint venture between MGM Mirage and Infinity World Development Corp, a subsidiary of Dubai World.
“We’re very proud to be able to provide our award-winning technologies and expertise to this iconic destination,” said Marilyn Burrows, senior vice president and general manager of Cox Communications Las Vegas. “Guests will experience the most advanced entertainment systems we can offer when they interact with Cox’s products and services.”
Cox Business/Hospitality Network is also providing Cox high-speed Internet, digital TV and digital telephone services to CityCenter residences, as well as shops and restaurants at the 500,000-square-foot Crystals retail and entertainment district. In addition, the company is providing data transport services for back office and enterprise use.
