Private Network Solutions: Why Cox Communications, Intel, and Future Technologies are Collaborating

By Alex Passett, Editor  |  February 27, 2023

It’s 2023, and tech moves fast.

If you’ve been steeped in this industry long enough, such a statement reads more like a Captain Obvious quote than a sprinkle of uncorked enlightenment. We see possibilities in tech expanding at exponential rates, and businesses are remaining agile as a result.

Take Cox Communications, for example. Earlier this month, Cox acquired Logicworks, a cloud managed services company. With Logicworks in its commercial portfolio, Cox (News - Alert) is able to help customers better migrate and manage cloud systems as Cox’s own suite of innovative IT solutions grows.

As stated, tech (and agile businesses) move fast. So we’ve been left with zero surprise as Cox, once again, makes headlines with a new business relationship with Intel and Future Technologies. The three will collaborate in order to design and deploy end-to-end managed private network solutions together for public and private sector commercial customers.

“The combined knowledge and expertise created by this new relationship,” said Jeff Breaux, Executive Vice President of Cox Business (News - Alert), “will help us solve the biggest operational challenges with end-to-end network solutions, accelerate the journey of digital transformation, and provide better experiences for employees, customers and visitors."

This new go-to-market agreement combines Intel’s (News - Alert) already-far-reaching portfolio of cloud-to-edge solutions with Future Technologies’ know-how in specialized planning, design, implementation and support of wireless and wireline communications. These, when integrated with Cox’s edge infrastructure, fiber assets, and its ability to deliver and manage private wireless connectivity, are set to create a win-win-win scenario for customers in manufacturing, utilities, government, and other industries.

“This is a winning partnership,” said Peter Cappiello, CEO of Future Technologies. “In combining Intel’s product set and R&D depth along with Cox’s operations with our own network planning and deployment capabilities, we see this as a perfect match. Future Technologies has been delivering private networks for our customers for well over a decade, so this is a real natural progression for innovations and for the growing needs of the market.”
