MGM Resorts International has extending its high-density Wi-Fi network to its Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor and Excalibur properties.
The Wi-Fi network covers the low-rise public spaces – including pools, casinos, lobbies and restaurants – any place a visitor may wish to have mobile service. The rollout began with Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay including THEhotel, and The Mirage, all completed at the end of 2012. The Wi-Fi at ARIA, Vdara and The Shops at Crystals, that launched with CityCenter's opening in 2009, has been integrated with the new system so guests have seamless Wi-Fi connectivity when traveling from resort to resort and the same customizable Wi-Fi experience and bandwidth options, regardless of which property they are visiting.
Cisco is the lead vendor for the project.
"No one else in Las Vegas, and even the world, within the Hospitality industry can offer the scale, quantity and quality of wireless services we now have available," said John Bollen, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer for MGM Resorts International. "We implemented the same commercial-grade technology and design solutions used at last year's Super Bowl and Summer Olympics to provide even better engagement with MGM Resorts' world-class destinations. With this new capability and the right technology partners, we are developing and enhancing innovative products and services based on our customers' needs, interests and preferences to deliver the best possible experience at our premier resorts."
