While two-way radios have served as reliable communications devices for decades, we now have a newer technology called Push-to-talk over Cellular (PoC) that’s more efficient and affordable. AND organizations can easily test and scale PoC without making huge financial or organizational change commitments.
Most companies are currently equipped with mobile phones and data plans; all that’s needed is a PTT app subscription to gain PoC capabilities. Essentially a PoC app turns a mobile phone, or tablet, into a two-way radio. (Note that PoC app makers are continuously creating customized solutions for specific industries to take advantage of the many functions a mobile phone offers.)
Advantages to PoC
Unlike regular cell phones that allow 1:1 communication, PoC offers 1: many communication. Using PoC significantly improves inter-and intra-group communications and even allows international group communication through the data network.
Low Risk Testing and Scaling PoC
Realizing that a hard switch from radio to PoC may be too risky for some companies, PTT application providers are investing in PTT apps that integrate PoC into 2-way communications. This allows mobile phone users to communicate on existing radio channels and companies can successfully scale their adoption rate up to a suitable point where 2-way radios are completely replaced by PoC.
