In the highly populated Denver metropolitan area, Centennial Airport applies IP-based capture and streaming technologies to minimize regional noise impact – to the benefit of community relations. The Denver-Aurora-Lakewood Colorado metropolitan statistical area comprises 10 counties with a population exceeding 2.8 million. The population continues to be among the fastest growing nationwide;
