money, quite literally, for Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries.
Its liquor distribution center hosts two casinos – PlayNow.com and a network of
video lottery terminals. Once in a while, slot machines and other electronic
games are rotated and cycled to different locations. As you can imagine,
getting these moved and connected quickly is a matter of revenue. Every lost

Manitoba looked to
CommScope – a partner for 14 years – for a seamless cabling solution. They
required a wired floor grid to provide maximum reliability and flexibility to
the connection of the machines. The
first phase called for 8,000 feet of SYSTIMAX
Category 6 network cable, resulting in 3,000 cable outlets and associated patch panels. Then the system
went through a long-term migration to imVision to help better manage assets and
simplify the frequent changes to come.

certified Manitoba’s own cable and electrical teams. This provided expertise
for the frequent location changes that were still to come.
