Colorado Convention Center Extends Technology Contract with Smart City Networks
Smart City Networks announced that the Colorado Convention Center
(CCC) has renewed its contract with the event technology provider for up to six years.
“Smart City has been our longtime valued partner providing robust technology solutions to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come to the Colorado Convention Center every year, ensuring that they have the Internet connectivity they expect and demand,” said John Adams, general manager of the Colorado Convention Center. “Smart City’s expert technical service and dedicated customer service ensures that our events are a success, and has enabled our facility to market our technology capabilities as a valued amenity.”
“Meeting the growing technology needs of the event industry, as well as the connectivity requirements of its attendees, remains our number one priority,” said Mark Haley, president of Smart City Networks. “We’re proud of the confidence that the Colorado Convention Center has in our capabilities and services. We look forward to continuing to serve the facility as its technology partner, ensuring it has the most advanced and reliable networks to keep their customers connected.”
Led locally by Debbie Olivas, general manager for technology services, Smart City Networks will install a significant upgrade to the CCC’s Wi-Fi network. As a part of this upgrade, Smart City will double the capacity of the existing wireless network by adding wireless controllers, edge switches and additional access points, allowing for more people and more devices to connect to the Wi-Fi network simultaneously. Free Wi-Fi service will also be available at street level, in all common spaces and meeting rooms.
Smart City will also continue to provide high-speed Internet access using Ethernet protocols to all exhibit spaces and meeting rooms, and turnkey data networking services, including local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs) and private networks using the latest technology.
