MGM Resorts International's New Wi-fi Unparalleled In Hospitality Industry

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Admit it. We've all become completely reliant on mobile devices, including cell phones, laptops, tablets and smartphones. When traveling, whether for business or pleasure, the mobile devices are in hand and we expect to connect, regardless of where we are.

Understanding the needs of the mobile user, MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) collaborated with Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) to create a high-density Wi-Fi system designed to enhance the guest experience.  The two companies have developed the highest-performing wireless LAN in the industry, allowing travelers with multiple wireless devices to enjoy quality Wi-Fi.  The new high-tech capabilities put MGM Resorts ahead of the curve with the ability to meet guests' ever-evolving expectations.

An industry leader, MGM Resorts is the only hospitality company in the country to develop this next-generation, dependable system, which provides superior services including better engagement with MGM Resorts' world-class destinations. Advantages of the program include 30 percent faster connectivity resulting in longer battery life used by mobile devices, automatic     Wi-Fi connection that eliminates user hassle, and delivery of customized, relevant and timely offers and information delivered directly to guests' mobile devices.

The Wi-Fi rollout at MGM Resorts' destinations in Las Vegas began with Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage, all completed at the end of 2012. Additional Las Vegas resorts, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor and Excalibur, will install Wi-Fi in 2013.  The installations cover the low-rise public spaces – including pools, casinos, lobbies and restaurants – any place a visitor may wish to have mobile service.  The Wi-Fi rollout for guest rooms has begun at MGM Grand, with completion expected in March 2013; installation for Mandalay Bay is scheduled next, and other resorts will follow.

While visiting one of these resorts, guests receive complimentary Wi-Fi in the public spaces with the option to upgrade to higher bandwidth, ensuring that everyone has the mobile experience they want. Hotel guests and meeting attendees enjoy upgraded Wi-Fi.
