Enhancing Communication with Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC)

Push-to-talk over cellular (PoC) revolutionizes communication by enabling radio users to connect instantly via data networks. This innovative technology not only facilitates rapid responses but also ensures connectivity through Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G networks. With the imminent emergence of 5G standards, PoC is poised to transcend geographical limitations, allowing users to engage in push-to-talk conversations with international counterparts. This advancement is particularly beneficial for fleet and team managers operating across continents, providing unparalleled convenience and efficiency.

Today, PoC leverages the cutting-edge LTE cellular infrastructure of leading Mobile Network Operators such as AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, ensuring nationwide coverage and support for unlimited voice and video call groups.

How Push-to-Talk over Cellular Operates

PoC devices seamlessly integrate with the LTE infrastructure of Mobile Network Operators, utilizing SIM cards akin to those found in cell phones. This integration results in a highly dependable network with minimal maintenance requirements and operational costs. A user-friendly app installed on PoC radios grants effortless access to PoC services.

PoC network services are hosted in the cloud, residing on privately owned and operated servers belonging to the PoC platform. Gateway routers establish connectivity between the LTE network and the PoC server. Dispatch Applications, facilitating group calling and GPS location tracking, and the Management Application, used for configuring customer accounts, connect to the PoC cloud server via the internet, ensuring seamless communication and management capabilities.
