The Howard Hughes Corp., developer of the Summerlin master planned community and Las Vegas Ballpark, announced a multi-year partnership designating Cox Business as the Technology Sponsor of the new 10,000-capacity stadium. Currently under construction at Downtown Summerlin, Las Vegas Ballpark is the future home of the Las Vegas Aviators, the city's professional Triple-A baseball team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) and affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.

As the Technology Sponsor, Cox Business will be the exclusive technology solutions provider for ballpark, supporting both operational functions and guest-facing technology.

The partnership features Cox's product integration throughout Las Vegas Ballpark, as well as several promotional, marketing, fan activation and community relations initiatives.

"We value our relationship with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and The Howard Hughes Corp., so we're understandably very excited about this newest affiliation as Technology Sponsor at Las Vegas Ballpark," said Derrick Hill, vice president, Cox Business Las Vegas. "As sports fans, we look forward to getting behind the Aviators during the team's first season at its new stadium and helping to create a premier fan experience at the city's new, first-class baseball venue."

"Cox Business' reputation as an industry-leading provider of technology products and solutions is well-known and well-deserved," said Don Logan, president and chief operations officer of the Las Vegas Aviators. "Through this partnership, Cox Business will provide a broad range of services and products that will not only deliver the best possible stadium experience for fans, but also enhance the organization's technological capabilities."

As part of the deal, Cox Business will offer telecommunications services delivered through fiber optic cable including Internet, cable TV, voice services, managed public and private WiFi, as well as network infrastructure that includes 380 access points.

The company will also install a distributed antenna system designed to enhance wireless coverage provided by the major carriers within the ballpark. In addition, Cox Business will provide technical support to the on-site ballpark technology team for all major events.

Cox Business will rely in part on its Hospitality Network division to implement the technologies at the new baseball stadium.
