Cox Business/Hospitality Network continues to find big payouts for its services bets in Las Vegas. It just won a contract to provide a dual play of video and wireless to Golden Nugget's Rush Tower 25-story addition.
Under the terms of the agreement, Cox Business will provide a host of standard/high-definition, video on demand video services in addition to wireless Internet connectivity.
In addition to providing video and data services, Cox Business/Hospitality plans to deploy its iGuest system at the Golden Nugget. Unlike the standard paper-and-ink guestbook found in a typical hotel room, iGuestbook provides hotel guests with a portal to various services that can be viewed on the guestroom TV set and controlled by the TV remote.
Although Cox Business has proven its ability to provide HFC and fiber-based Ethernet and IP services, the latest deal with Golden Nugget and other hotels in Las Vegas illustrates how the hospitality business has become a major vertical market target for the MSO. A key element of Cox's hospitality strategy is providing video services. Cox Business' success in Las Vegas prompted Cox Business to target national and regional hotel chains throughout all of its markets with its video services.
