WICHITA, Kan. -- Cox Business announced today that it recently outfitted the 22nd Air Refueling Wing at McConnell Air Force Base with advanced voice circuits to support ongoing communications requirements at the military installation.

This contract with McConnell AFB is indicative of Cox Business’ focused efforts to address the needs of regionally-concentrated vertical industries that require complex telecommunications, including healthcare, education and government organizations.

Cox Business’ solution for McConnell AFB includes four PRI (primary rate interface) dedicated circuits that support a block of 7,000 phone numbers. The advanced voice lines will be used to transmit the majority of local inbound and outbound local calling for all base operations. Cox Business also provides video for news and entertainment in several common areas at McConnell AFB.

“Government organizations, and particularly military installations, must have secure communications networks with carrier-class reliability and disaster recovery capabilities,” said Nick DiPonzio, vice president of Cox Business Kansas/Arkansas. “Cox Business’ robust local network facilities make it a natural fit for serving large military campuses with advanced voice and data needs.”
