Cox Communications to Pilot IoT Program in Nevada

Cox Communications is entering into a partnership with Henderson, Nevada to pilot its smart technology in the city’s Water Street District Innovation Corridor.

Cox2M, the IoT business line of Cox Communications, will test several solutions in the area to help address challenges like energy and water conservation, public safety and economic development efforts. The objective of the pilot will be to measure the overall impact and value created by these smart community solutions.This collaboration will position Henderson with the most innovative communities as it aggregates critical data to make actionable decisions on resource management.

The Water Street District is considered the historic heart of Henderson and is located approximately 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. With the forthcoming pilot, the area will soon become an innovation exploration environment for the Cox2M Smart Communities Platform solutions. The goal is to uncover insights and new solutions to expand in Henderson and other Cox markets.

The one-year Water Street District pilot will begin in early 2020 and may include crowd counting and vehicle detection; smart water meters; smart lighting controls; and data analytics.
