Push to Talk over Cellular (PoC)

Push to Talk over Cellular (PoC) combines the functionality of radio and smartphone technology in one device.  PoC can be used nationwide and enables users to have one-to-many and one-to-one communication from their smartphone.

PoC has been available for a long time, however, with the availability of 3G, 4G and the release of 5G networks, along with the proliferation of smartphone technology, PoC has become a powerful means of collaboration and safety for mobile teams.

We have two great solutions within our portfolio Atlas PTT and Hytera Hytalk.  More information about Hytera Hytalk can be found by clinking this link.

Atlas PTT, is easy to set up and doesn’t have any of the licensing restrictions that comes with Private Mobile Radio.  It also isn’t limited to an area or site, and can be used globally, wherever there is 3G, 4G/LTE and 5G coverage.

In today’s challenging working environment, teams need to work hard to get things done but the most effective teams will work smartly too.  This means providing mobile workforces with the tools to work together, in order complete each job as quickly as possible. Combined with the use of other mobile applications, Atlas PTT users can draw on the support of their mobile colleagues without having to move from the spot.  They can email colleagues a photo of their task e.g. a machine they need to fix, have a quick group chat using their PoC app on their smartphone, before having  a one-to-one mobile call to assist with the task in hand.

Teams also need to work safely too, which means having robust processes in place for those that work alone so employees can raise an alarm and alert colleagues to accidents or incidents when things go wrong.  This is where lone worker applications like the Atlas SOS lone worker app, that is fully operational on the same smartphone, are a necessity for today’s modern mobile workforce.    

For more information about how Atlas PTT can help your teams work together more effectively and safely please see information detailed below.
