Voxbone is showcasing its iNum international phone numbers at the Burning Man conference this week in Nevada.
Voxbone’s international numbers (iNums) are prefixed with +833 and, unlike traditional telephone numbers, can be used anywhere in the world.
iNums are compatible with a range of VoIP services, including Skype and GoogleTalk.
Voxbone said it decided to showcase iNums at the Burning Man conference because of its remote location and because delegates are open to new ideas.
“We are showcasing how iNum can be used to connect remote or unconnected areas of the globe with the rest of the connected world,” said Rod Ullens, Voxbone CEO.
“In addition, we are demonstrating to people attending Burning Man that they can receive voice calls and text messages from services like Google Talk on their cell phones at the festival.
“Burning Man is a great event at which to highlight these types of services because the attendees are open to new ideas and new experiences, and we are enthused to be a part of that.”
Burning Man was set up in the 1980s to help create a society where individuals are connected to their creative powers, and participate in community, civic life, and the world of nature.
