Cox Communications has made it possible to use mobile health checkups, cleaning, cooking, video conference, live podcasting, and video games simultaneously on the same internet source. This is possible with the G1GABLAST service by Cox, which is actually a part of the Cox Smart Home services.
Cox Communications had earlier put the Cox Smart Home for display at Esencia in Rancho Mission Viejo in a model home. Esencia is Orange County’s first master-planned residential community wired with fiber-optic technology. This will present an opportunity for homeowners to access and enjoy the fast internet service from Cox.
Cox Communications claims that their internet service at Esencia will be hundred times faster than the normal internet service we receive today. They also added that their subscribers would be able to download almost 1000 photos or a high definition movie in about a minute.
In a latest release, Cox Communications stated, “Today’s average household connects six devices to the internet, from laptops and tablets to gaming and smartphones. That number is expected to increase to 50 devices by the year 2022.”
Cox representatives also demonstrated their latest internet service by enlisting podcasters, professional gamers, video bloggers, and many other professionals. Cox Communications simultaneously operated 30 different devices on the same internet source and the demonstration event was a huge success for the major company.
During the demonstration, a video game designer named Chris Avellone, simultaneously chatted with the producer, author, and host, Genese Davis, and displayed the video game graphics on a giant big screen. At the same time, Jason Yang, a professional violinist gave violin lessons to viewers through Skype in high definition.
In addition to this, the members of the forensics program at Thurston Middle School in Laguna Beach, who were working on a mock crime scene simultaneously video chatted with a professional via Robot. Whitney Bond, a food blogger, used a Wifi enabled slow cooker to display some of her recipes while she was simultaneously video blogging on social media pages.
“It really is more than speed. We’re trying to create a connected home. We have all these devices and now we’re trying to enable them all at once,” said Ryland Madison, director of product marketing at Cox.
Cox Communications is also aiming to bring gigabit service without using fiber-optic technology for their residential customers by the year 2017. “It allows us to get to our customers rather than the constraint of running fiber, which requires permits. We should be in all of our markets next year,” Madison added.
