PTToC

Press-To-Talk over Cellular is becoming a popular choice for many 2-way radio users due to a multitude of benefits.

First and foremost is the massive coverage area – essentially Australia-wide – that is afforded to this technology by operating on the existing mobile networks: Telstra, Optus or Vodafone. Provided a user is within cellular range they can enjoy two-way radio-like communications Australia Wide, going away with the need for expensive repeater hardware and infrastructure setup costs.

PTToC devices are fitted with a SIM card and generally run an Android operating system, much like a smartphone. They are specially designed with PTT communications in mind, incorporating purpose-placed keys for PTT, emergency, volume and channel selection – much like a ‘conventional’ two-way radio.

PTToC Devices (Radios) connect to mobile phone towers in the same way mobile phones do, the difference being that a PTToC device communicates with a dedicated PTToC Server rather than the Mobile Phone Carriers Server. These servers can be located anywhere in the world and proximity to the server is critical to ensuring the quickest call setup time with minimal latency and maximum reliability and data security.
