The newest casino in Las Vegas is making the best of artificial intelligence to improve its operations
Circa Resort and Casino, which opened in Las Vegas in October of last year, has chosen an edge services, platform-based network from Aruba to keep staff and guests connected. The artificial intelligence (AI) network offered by Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, will be installed at the sports-themed property, as well as at satellite locations throughout Nevada, Colorado and other jurisdictions. The move will reportedly save Circa almost $500,000, while allowing it to enhance its internal and front-of-house operations.
Circa explains that it will use a hybrid of Aruba’s wired, wireless and security solutions to power most of its amenities, including the Stadium Swim and a three-story sportsbook. That sportsbook is the largest in the US, offering a 78-million pixel video display divided into 42 screens with a 1,000-person viewing capacity. “Delivering today’s socially driven premier entertainment experiences in Las Vegas is a 24/7 endeavor,” said Paul Ballard, chief information officer at Circa. “Aruba supplied the full stack of [artificial intelligence]-enabled wired and wireless networking innovations essential for running a successful operation.”
In addition to enabling onsite multicasting, Circa is going to offer connected lighting and Internet-based TVs in its guestrooms. To help facilitate the administration of the wired and wireless networks, Circa has adopted AirWave to provide its network management, along with ClearPass for network access control and policy management. It has also implemented User Experience Insight for WIFI incident detection that relies on AIOps to pinpoint potential problems that might need immediate attention.
