Cox Communications Named 2006 3G A-List Award Winner


Cox’s 3G CDMA-Based Wireless Data Solution Named the Best in Large Business Category

ATLANTA - Cox Communications today announced that it has received top honors in the 2006 3G A-ListT Awards. The QUALCOMM-sponsored awards program, now in its fourth year, recognizes innovative and successful enterprise wireless data solutions based on third-generation (3G) CDMA standards. Cox was identified as having the best solution in the large business category during a private reception held during the CTIA Wireless I.T.® & Entertainment 2006 conference in Los Angeles.

“We are very excited to receive recognition for this strategic effort that is paying big dividends for Cox,” said Scott Hatfield, senior vice president and chief information officer. “Our aim was to upgrade our workforce administration system to improve productivity while reducing costs. With more than six million work orders generated on a yearly basis, we saw the opportunity to take our first-generation electronic system-structured around a text-only, private radio structure-to a higher bandwidth solution that would handle work orders faster and link up with back office tools. This translates not only to greater efficiency for Cox, but also better customer service which is always foremost in our goals.”

“QUALCOMM is proud to recognize Cox’s outstanding achievements using a best-in-class mobility implementation based on 3G CDMA technology,” said Kristin Taylor, senior director of enterprise business development for QUALCOMM. “Each of the finalists has demonstrated the benefits of using 3G mobile technology to its full potential through real results such as increased business revenue and faster, more efficient operating processes.”

The annual 3G A-List Awards honor outstanding wireless implementations that demonstrate creativity and innovation, overall business impact and how the winning company or organization exceeded business objectives by introducing higher return on investment, lower operating expenses or increased user satisfaction.
