Cox Business has unveiled details on high-speed internet that will serve the upcoming Allegiant Stadium, the Las Vegas home of the relocating Raiders opening this year.
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.
“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. “We’re proud to be a part of Las Vegas’ evolution towards the sports and entertainment capital of the world – continued by delivering a truly connected experience for Allegiant Stadium visitors.”
“We’re pleased to have Cox deliver the highest quality connectivity and technology to the Raiders and Allegiant Stadium,” said Raiders President Marc Badain.
As an official telecommunications provider of the 1.75-million square foot stadium, Cox will power an interactive game-day activation unique to the Raiders using the latest technologies. Cox will leverage its history of offering activations like the Cox Virtual Meet and Greet that create memorable moments for fans by changing the way they interact with the game and their athletic heroes. In addition, Cox Media will sponsor the Raiders’ media studio at the Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center that is under construction in nearby Henderson, Nevada.
