Cox Private Networks in Action
A large bottling facility with over 1 million square feet in the U.S. needed their connectivity solution to extend to the loading yard at the rear of the building to enable employees to process inventory on their handheld tablets and scanners, where historically workers had trouble staying connected as they moved around. Adding in a private cellular network expanded coverage and enabled seamless mobility for the people and machines moving around the facility.

  • Innovative Technology Use Cases such as security monitoring & analytics, digital signage, and parking analytics to optimize guest and vendor experiences
  • LAN/WAN Extension to connect new, outlying buildings without disrupting existing infrastructure
Cox Private Networks in Action
An RV park wanted to offer Wi-Fi to all guests staying at the park. However, the mesh Wi-Fi solution alone provided poor coverage and insufficient throughput, and trenching fiber to extend connectivity to each RV site was cost-prohibitive. Extending the managed Wi-Fi solution with a private network provided strong, reliable Wi-Fi to each site within the campus.
Example Use Cases: Security Monitoring, Video Analytics, Community Wi-Fi, Point-of-Sale, FOH/BOH Prioritization, and Digital Signage
