LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2020 -- Cox Business announced today it will provide Allegiant Stadium, future home of the Raiders in Las Vegas, with the fastest optical internet service available, ensuring visitors and staff have the bandwidth they need to stay connected – on the field and in the stands.
Allegiant Stadium will be fully covered by 1,700 managed Wi-Fi access points and underpinned by redundant 40-gigabit optical internet connections that will deliver high-speed bandwidth for every mobile device in the 65,000-seat venue. Cox will also power nearly 2,200 Cisco Vision dynamic screens and signs stadium-wide – guaranteeing a memorable, interactive experience.
Cox is also a founding partner and the official Wi-Fi and internet provider and will provide high-speed connections at Allegiant Stadium and at the team's soon-to-be-completed headquarters.
"Cox is deeply invested in connecting Las Vegas, powering stadiums, hotels and convention centers on and off the Strip," said Steve Rowley, executive vice president, Cox Business.
