Cox Business Will Enhance Connectivity at Wynn Las Vegas' Expansion
The forthcoming expansion of the Wynn Las Vegas convention center, set to be complete in February 2020, is getting more high tech. Cox Business announced this week that it will support the property with increased connectivity.
When the expansion is complete, Wynn Las Vegas will have 300,000 new square feet of rentable space, offering a total of 560,000 square feet across four pillar-free ballrooms, 57 meeting rooms, a 20,000-sq.-ft. outdoor pavilion and a 20,000-sq.-ft. adjacent lawn.
Cox Business has provided managed Wi-Fi services for the Wynn and Encore meeting and convention space since 2005, consistently delivering high-speed internet and wireless capabilities to meeting delegates. With the expansion, Cox will nearly double the number of Cisco access points and Cisco wireless switches on the property, essentially blanketing the convention center with connectivity.
“It’s imperative that guests to our convention space have a dedicated and dependable online experience, from presentations to personal device connectivity,” said Chris Flatt, executive vice president of hotel sales at Wynn Las Vegas. “Partnering with Cox Business has allowed us to confidently offer that experience consistently through the years.”
Cox Business officials emphasize that guests of Wynn will have the best online experience possible when visiting the enhanced resort. The company’s ultimate goal is to create a more connected Las Vegas Strip.
“As tourism and business development continues to expand in southern Nevada, Cox Business continues to be a driving force enabling that progress,” said Derrick Hill, vice president at Cox Business Las Vegas. “By furthering our over a decade-long relationship with Wynn and Encore, we continue to provide visitors with the fast and reliable connectivity that they expect from these five-star resorts.”
In addition to technology upgrades, Wynn is getting greener. The expansion will be powered by 100-percent renewable energy sourced from the 160-acre Wynn Solar Facility and on-site rooftop solar panels — an industry first for a gaming operator in the state of Nevada.
