Diga-Talk Digital Communications Network Offers Three Months of Free Airtime to New Subscribers

JOLIET, Ill., Jan 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Diga-Talk ® has announced a free airtime offer. Diga-Talk users activating new subscriber units starting January 15, 2013 through February 28, 2013 will receive unlimited free airtime on the Diga-Talk network. Each new activated unit during this period will receive three months of unlimited airtime. Some restrictions may apply.

Diga-Talk is an all-digital 2-way communications network built for business. Diga-Talk provides push to talk service throughout the greater Chicagoland region. Diga-Talk is a wide-area, all-digital secure communication network for business. This easy-to-use Diga-Talk unit provides instant communications only to other properly programmed Diga-Talk units. It can be programmed for group calls to talk to all of the Diga-Talk units in an enterprise at the same time and it can also make private one-to-one direct calls.

Diga-Talk began commercial service in November 2009 and has experienced phenomenal growth. Since its beginning the network has continuously grown, providing additional capacity, features, and tower sites with a larger coverage area. Its successful growth can be credited to many factors. Diga-Talk is the only network of its kind blanketing the entire greater Chicago metropolitan area. Many business owners are finding the Diga-Talk network the best choice to replace its cellular push to talk phones and its old analog 2-way radios. Cellular carriers have been struggling to transform and shut down older push to talk services in Chicago, causing great customer dissatisfaction. Company owners are finding the push to talk service provided on the new cellular networks inadequate for their business operations.

Another area of growth has been with companies that operate commercial motor vehicles. The Federal Department of Transportation enacted very strict rules banning cellular phone use in commercial motor vehicles in January 2012. These new laws have heavy fines not only for the driver of a commercial motor vehicle but also for the company owner. Drivers with a CDL driver's license must now adhere to these new rules for cell phone use. The State of Illinois also enacted similar strict laws that ban cellular phone use in commercial motor vehicles and in all vehicles in construction and school zones. This new Illinois law went into effect on January 1, 2013. Many business owners are just now learning about these new laws that have great impact on their company and on their drivers. The Diga-Talk unit is exempt from these laws as it is classified as a 2-way radio.

Diga-Talk with its large coverage area, flat rate billing, secure voice, and programming options make it an easy choice for company owners. Now with the 3-month free airtime offer, Diga-Talk is the best choice for a business owner looking to communicate with his people. The Diga-Talk subscriber units are available not only in permanent mounted vehicle units but also in hand-held portable units. Their durable design will deliver many years of dependable service.

When you think about all the transactions or interactions users will have with your product and everything that is between those transactions and interactions - what drives us at Catchpoint Systems is the idea to measure that and to analyze it," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York Ci...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Connected devices and the industrial internet are growing exponentially every year with Cisco expecting 50 billion devices to be in operation by 2020. In this period of growth, location-based insights are becoming invaluable to many businesses as they adopt new connected technologies. Knowing when and where these devices connect from is critical for a number of scenarios in supply chain management, disaster management, emergency response, M2M, location marketing and more. In his session at @Th...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often ...
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source tec...
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
