AT&T and Sprint to Use New Cox Business and InSite Network to Improve Wireless Coverage at Las Vegas Convention Center
Dec 28 15
Cox Business and InSite have partnered with the Las Vegas Convention Center to help ensure a better convention experience for wireless customers as they navigate the venue's 3.2 million square feet. AT&T, Sprint, and a third major wireless carrier have signed agreements to launch this service powered by Cox and InSite on the new distributed antenna system (DAS). Over the last 18 months, the site of the CES trade show and other top-attended global conventions has boosted the number of WiFi access points from 166 to 2,100 in order to improve onsite access to wireless data. Most recently, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority announced that Cox Business and InSite Wireless Group will build a custom DAS to increase cellular network capacity and reliability for participating carriers inside one of the largest exhibit halls. The 2,100 WiFi access points, backed by redundant Cox Business 10 Gbps fiber connections, are fully operational and the new DAS will be completed by this time next year 2016. The DAS will markedly improve the performance for smart phones and mobile devices, as well as increase the cellular carriers' network capacity and reliability of service, providing convention center attendees with better access to high speed video streaming, HD Voice, and video calling offered by the latest 4G LTE technology. The DAS concept is built on the engineering principle that a linked network of low-powered, spatially separated antennas and repeaters providing overlapping coverage within the confines of an enclosed area improves cellular capabilities and reception, eliminates dropped calls and heightens the user experience. The system is comprised of common fiber optic, radio, and antenna infrastructure that is maintained by a dedicated InSite technical staff. Once completed, the Las Vegas Convention Center DAS will have a capacity equivalent to 14 cell sites and can accommodate all carriers to serve the wireless needs of capacity crowds at LVCVA's large events. In August of 2013, Cox Business and the LVCVA signed a seven-year contract with a three-year extension to provide wired high-speed Internet networking services and equipment, wired voice services, private network options, WiFi based wireless Internet services and TV services. The future installation of DAS capability by Cox Business partner InSite Wireless Group was part of that contract.
