The Washington Casino Upgrades Their Wireless Connection
Geoverse is a licensed mobile network operator and private LTE services provider. They recently announced it signed a contract with 7 Cedars Casino in Sequim, WA to bring a private LTE solution to casino. This comes after the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) approval of Citizens Band Radio Services (CBRS). Geoverse is an ideal partner for the 7 Cedars Casino. The company uses shared CBRS and licensed spectrum to design and operate private LTE services on behalf of enterprises.
The private LTE solution will cover the casino, three restaurants and a new $40 million luxury hotel. They are to open in May 2020. The network will provide up to five bars of connectivity and support a variety of new applications and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The solution comes at the perfect time for 7 Cedars Casino. Customers want connection and had difficulty doing so given the resort’s limited wireless coverage.
“Geoverse has extensive industry experience installing and maintaining carrier-grade wireless networks,” 7 Cedars Casino General Manager Glenn Smithson said in a statement. “They also understand our vision of providing personalized services focused on improving the end-to-end customer experience. Our goal is to provide the best guest experience in the Olympic Peninsula and the Geoverse solution is key to our strategy.”
Casino customers will connect to guest services via iPads that will be in their rooms or by using apps on their own devices, according to Smithson. 7 Cedars Casino’s other offerings will include digital reservations and mobile check-in. Wireless room entry with the customers’ own cell phones and a personal mobile concierge. This goes along with the wireless service that will be all throughout the casino and hotel.
The Longevity Geoverse Can Bring 7 Cedars
Geoverse will create and manage the end-to-end Private LTE solution for 7 Cedars Casino. The solution provides highly reliable and secure communication services. As well as robust application capabilities for online gaming. Smart building applications and IoT devices will also see upgrades. Geoverse has the scalability and flexibility to expand as new buildings erect and to upgrade to next generation functionality such as 5G.
“7 Cedars Casino is a forward-thinking, innovative organization that has a 25-year track record of embracing change to enhance its customer experience and optimize its business,” Geoverse CEO Rod Nelson said in a statement. “Many companies take a wait and see attitude towards new opportunities or technologies but not 7 Cedars. They understand their customers and jumped at the opportunity to provide carrier-grade wireless service in their casino and restaurants. And next summer they are adding an entirely new customer experience with the opening of their luxury hotel.”
