Cox promises to increase Las Vegas safety via private networks, edge computing and video intelligence

Cox Communications says it has partnered with the City of Las Vegas to create a safer environment for its residents, businesses and visitors.

By deploying a private wireless network in downtown Las Vegas covering eight city blocks, Cox says it provides video cameras and real-time data analytics to improve safety and security, with the potential for more smart city applications.

“Cities of all sizes are actively improving their public spaces and Cox can employ smart technology to create healthier, more connected environments that align with those plans,” says Brett Lasher, GM of Cox Private Networks.

Cox and the City of Las Vegas previously partnered to launch a smart city solution in 2021, with applications for parking lot management, safety detection and trend analytics. The Cox Private Networks architecture can scale up as needed to provide services for the city’s residents and visitors.

Cox leveraged its Cox Private Networks solutions, Cox Edge infrastructure, Cox2M data intelligence, and Smart Communities applications to create an interconnected environment.

Cox Private Networks says its solutions are tailored to customer needs and use technology from leading partners. Cox is partnering with Cambium Networks and Dell Technologies to provide multi-gigabit fixed wireless communications and edge infrastructure for the Las Vegas Fremont Street project.

“From better transportation services to improved safety, edge technologies can empower cities to improve quality of life for their citizens and advance their communities,” says Scott Cohen, the vice president of global telecom network sales,Telecom Systems Business, Dell Technologies. “By working with Cox to deploy Dell Technologies edge infrastructure in Downtown Las Vegas, the city can access data insights to enhance daily life for residents and visitors.”

Cox Communications services nearly seven million homes and businesses across 18 states. It is a division of Cox Enterprises, a family-owned company founded in 1898.

Earlier this year, Cox Communications announced that it acquired Logicworks, a managed cloud services company. According to the company, Logicworks focuses on assisting customers with migrating and managing their business applications on AWS and Azure platforms.
