RLS-CMC, Inc. has successfully completed a large Distributed Antenna System (DAS) installation in the Main Tower of the world famous Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas. The DAS network will support multiple wireless carriers, and will extend coverage throughout the hotel's guest floors. Expensive existing finishes and ongoing hotel operations made for a challenging installation, the sort conducted exclusively by the industry’s top tier teams. Over the course of fifteen weeks, the RLS-CMC team was able to meet and exceed all expectations.
“I am proud of what RLS-CMC has accomplished at The Bellagio. We were challenged to construct a robust wireless network for the use of the four major carriers, as guests and staff required coverage over every square foot of the Hotel. We knew the network would have to be capable of uninterrupted service for no less than four hours in the event of a power outage, and that the installation of the network should be seamless and invisible to Hotel guests. High quality decorating, level five finishes, and the many architectural details in the hotel.
Our customers, ExteNet Systems and the Bellagio, are also our partners. Their help was instrumental in the success of the project. In all, we used eight highly qualified specialty contractors and long term partner Taylor Construction to accomplish our goals. RLS-CMC finished the project on schedule and below budget. Our people will tell you, that at RLS-CMC we are never satisfied, we are always raising the bar,” explained Roger Sanchez, President of RLS-CMC, Inc.
The DAS installation project provided unique challenges that are exclusive to luxury resorts like the Bellagio. Due to year round occupancy rates of nearly 100%, the installation was completed while maintaining guest services. RLS-CMC implemented strategic policies to allow for a quieter install with minimal guest impact. These policies allow hotel type venues to continue generating income throughout the install processes.
“We at the Bellagio admittedly had some concerns of guest impact while working in occupied corridors. Your team was very professional and kept the areas clean through the entire process. That was a big help to the Bellagio minimizing guest complaints. As we near the end of the project and AT&T completes their commissioning we are very grateful for the team’s professionalism,” said Adam Hart, Assistant Engineering Director of the Bellagio Hotel.
A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, the MGM Resorts International-owned Bellagio Main Tower hotel consists of three thousand and fifteen rooms and thirty six floors.
