IMPULSE Wireless’s technologies overcome the limitations of digital and analogue radio while maintaining the advantages of instant two-way communications.
Any owner or operator in a fleet knows the advantage of instant two-way group communications such as provided by a company two-way radio. Safe and fast voice communications across the entire operation increases productivity, situational awareness, and safety.
But are radios outdated? Can the benefits of instant radio-style communications be seen along with the coverage you expect from your mobile phone? What about integration with smart devices already in use?
Push-to-talk, or PTT, is simply using smart devices and the mobile network to provide two-way communications; like a radio; but with the coverage of the mobile network, better voice quality, more flexibility, powerful features, and reduced costs.
Staff at IMPULSE Wireless are often asked the question, “If you can gain so many advantages and maintain the benefits of a “radio,” without the limitations of traditional radios, does that mean radios will be dead soon?”
We don’t think radios will be dead any time soon. Radios have their place. But for fleet communications, teams, incident response, drivers, work crews, dispatchers and staff in the field, PTT provides unmatched coverage and performance across Australia.
What are the latest developments in two-way communication technology?
IMPULSE Wireless customers have been using PTT since early 2015.
While software developments continually improve services, the latest advancements have been in the devices or hardware. The world’s best two-way communications technology will be on display at AWRE this year, including a number of new devices just released this month.
For some users, we simply replace radios with smart devices, providing vastly superior coverage and features; for others we integrate PTT into existing devices, reducing clutter, lowering total cost of ownership even further, and integrating user-friendly communications seamlessly with existing smart technology.
Because nothing beats the power of your voice when communicating with a team.
