201 8 TOP OPS AWARDS
MSO CONNECTIVITY AWARD
Cox Communications
Whether it's a cellphone, tablet, laptop or another smart device,
nothing's more aggravating in this day and age than not being able
to connect to the internet.
Enter Cox Communications, which has led the way in not only
connecting the home, but also greater communities and cities. The
company began to gain momentum when it launched Panoramic
WiFi, a solution going beyond wired connections in the home. With
each family owning more and more wireless devices, it was obvious
Cox needed to transform its offerings to fit the changing landscape.
" We started thinking about how we would satisfy that need because
we don't control what happens beyond the gateway, " explains Philip
Nutsugah, svp of product development and management. " It's the
whole program around it that includes customer education, partnering
with the customer to understand
what they need to do to ensure great
WiFi, certainly bringing different devices
to market. "
One of the simplest solutions is having
a technician walk the home to find dead
spots. " Really, at the end of the day, our
perspective is that we are in the connectivity
business, not just the access
business, " Nutsugah says, noting that
the company plans to invest about $10
billion into its network. " Using DOCSIS
3.1, it brings gigs to every community,
every home, every neighborhood in our
footprint, not just the lucky few who
happen to be in a FTTH community. "
Currently, more than 50 percent of Cox's
footprint is connected with DOCSIS 3.1.
" By the end of this year, close to 90 percent
of our footprint will have access to
gig [speeds] via DOCSIS 3.1, " Nutsugah
says. " By the end of 2019, almost 100
percent of our footprint will be wired
with DOCSIS 3.1. "
Recently, Cox looked beyond the home
to tackle connecting communities and
assets across entire cities. With IoT and
the phrase " smart cities " becoming
more popular, it was only natural for the
team so invested in connectivity to get
involved.
It was only March when Cox Communications
launched Cox2M, but the wheels
were turning on the concept for two

years prior. The connected business line takes connectivity beyond
the home, offering a solution to monitor and track commercial assets.
It all began with Cox Automotive's Manheim using a Cox2M application
to offer real-time tracking of vehicles across lots. It was piloted
last year and now connects more than 500,000 vehicles across the
US and Canada.
" We pride ourselves in delivering life's most important connections,
and I can definitely say that with Cox2M, it's strengthened the belief
that we're delivering the next wave, " says Barak Weinisman, gm of
Cox2M connected asset services.
Next, Cox plans to continue developing and fine-tuning its home
automation options, ensuring that customers can connect without
struggling too much. n
