PoC Solutions can connect radio systems and smart mobile telephones; extending the range of two-way radio and adding the ability to unify systems, giving you access to all the functionality you expect.
Now Push-to-Talk uses the convenience of WiFi and cellular but still removes the stress of setting up a phone call. A PTT call allows the recipient to hear an in-coming voice right away. The call comes through the PTT device’s speaker or an accessory in a hands-free, eyes-free manner, without any additional action. A PTT call eliminates the need for the recipient to press the answering button in order to take a call and hear the caller’s voice.
Broadband PTT can be used on a wide range of devices including tablets and standard or ruggedised smartphones (with a dedicated PTT button). Users of broadband PTT benefit from sub-second call set-up, high voice quality, lots of advanced features, multimedia applications integrated on the same device, and nationwide cellular network coverage.
This functionality is familiar to generations of radio users and is now set to reach a whole new audience. PTT gives a hands-free experience that’s essential for many industries and invaluable for the rest.
For workers in many industries the user-friendly interface of PTT radio is a major source of relief. You push the button, your colleague hears. That simple functionality is a time saving device; it saves the effort of setting up and making a call and with no hands required to answer an in-coming call; it removes the need to stop working. Current Push to Talk technologies can operate over your own broadband and Wi Fi installations while you are on site and gives you access to the cellular network when you are away from your base installations and locations. This on-site and off-site capability is dependent on your choice of device and has a service area requirement.
The ongoing development of PTT has made it suitable for a broader range of users as well. (MCPTT) standard from 3GPP now offers a Mission Critical Push to Talk allowing access to the same technologies for users whose communication is mission critical and demands a higher grade of service. Those in public safety roles, transport, security and more can now access the convenience of PTT without sacrificing the reliability that they depend upon.
