Travelers at Denver International Airport To Receive Free Global Calling Service

DENVER, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers at Denver International Airport now have the ability to make domestic and international phone calls free of charge.  The free, ad-supported calling service, called RMT Free Phone, is accessible at more than 200 landline phones located throughout Jeppesen Terminal and all three concourses.  The airport's advertising concessionaire, Clear Channel Airports, partnered with RMES Communications to launch this world-class customer amenity in November.  Denver International Airport is the first airport in the world to offer free global calling.

More than 50 million passengers a year now have access to unlimited, local and national calls free of any charges.  In addition, all international calls will be free of any charges for the first 10 minutes; calls lasting longer than ten minutes will be charged at the rate of $0.25 per minute and 15 percent tax.  

"This is another example of how Denver International Airport continuously looks for ways to enhance the customer experience and provide world-class service," said Chief Commercial Officer John Ackerman.  "While mobile phone usage has increased over the years, there is still a significant population who may not have access to a mobile phone because they do not own one, are traveling abroad, or their phone needs to be recharged.  This new service offers travelers the ability to call most areas of the world for free, connecting customers with loved ones and business partners around the globe."

To support this free telecommunication service, the phones are equipped with true high definition 17-inch LCD screens that are used for digital advertising and run over Voice over IP.  This new technology allows advertisers to promote their products airport-wide with 15-second digital advertisements, and offers customers digital coupons via QR codes as well as opt-in SMS-advertising.

"The new network has been in development for quite some time, and we are excited to finally offer it to Denver International Airport customers," said Miles Malone, Vice President of RMES Communications. "Although mobile is the most effective and convenient way to stay connected, there are times when cellular service for international visitors is not convenient.  We're excited to partner with Clear Channel Airports and Denver International Airport to make domestic and international calling accessible and free to customers."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
