Cox will integrate wireless into cable offering

Cable provider Cox Communications revealed a little more about what it will do with its 700 MHz licenses that it won earlier this year in the 700 MHz spectrum auction. Speaking at the Progress and Freedom Foundation's Aspen Summit yesterday, Cox President Patrick Esser said that the company will provide simple calling plans and it will integrate all its services into one device with a consistent cross-platform interface that will make all the company's content and applications mobile.

Cox has reportedly tapped Chinese infrastructure vendor Huawei to build its CDMA-based network in the U.S.

Earlier this year Cox joined with Sony Electronics and five other cable companies to agree to use tru2way, a Cable Labs standard that will allow consumers to access interactive digital and high-definition video without a set-top box.  It is an open source platform that will work across every device from every manufacturer.
