PTT Over Cellular (PoC)

Communication On Another Level

What is Push to Talk Over Cellular (PoC)? 

Nationwide PTT over Cellular (PoC) is a communication technology that allows users to instantly connect with a group or individual at the push of a button using cellular networks. PoC operates over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi networks, unlike traditional two-way radios that rely on specific frequencies, ensuring broader coverage and more reliable connections. 

Ever since the de-construction of the Nextel network in 2012, businesses and municipalities have been searching for a nationwide Push To Talk over Cellular network that allows users to get right through with the push of a button.  Each corporate cellular network has tried to replicate this type of PTT system, but all have been plagued with busies, delays, and missed calls.  Recently several networks have been put in place that combined the existing nationwide cellular coverage of these large carriers with redundant servers that buffer the transmission with proprietary software, which have all but eliminated the previous latency issues and can roam off of complementary Wifi networks to expand on this nationwide coverage.
