“Las Vegas is the perfect backdrop to talk about leading trends in the wireless industry as its high-end hotels, convention and entertainment venues are setting the pace for adoption of leading-edge wireless technology solutions,” said Tim Ayers, Vice President of Global Services at ExteNet Systems. “Our distributed networks in Las Vegas provide a great illustration of the many ways DNS delivers the seamless, pervasive and ultra-high speed wireless experience that luxury travelers demand today. ExteNet has an expansive outdoor cellular and Wi-Fi network powering the Las Vegas Strip and state-of-the-art cellular indoor networks in many of the luxury hotels and entertainment venues along or adjacent to The Strip. One of our newest outdoor networks at The Park ensures high performance, high-speed cellular service across the entire outdoor venue for the thousands of mobile subscribers enjoying the entertainment and dining experiences. Our workshop on Monday afternoon will explore the role of DNS to address network densification issues within the hospitality industry, using The Park as our case study.”
In addition to The Park, ExteNet enables enhanced 3G and 4G LTE network service for multiple wireless carriers across 15 square miles of the Vegas Strip and its surrounding areas. ExteNet’s extensive network in Vegas also includes outdoor carrier Wi-Fi along the Strip, as well as indoor distributed networks at several prominent casinos and hotels.
