Cox Business will provide Allegiant Stadium, future home of the Raiders in Las Vegas, with optical Internet service.

Allegiant Stadium will be covered by 1,700 managed WiFi access points (APs) and underpinned by redundant 40 Gbps optical Internet connections to 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 also a founding partner and the official WiFi and Internet provider and will provide high-speed connections at Allegiant Stadium and at the team's soon-to-be-completed headquarters.

"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.
