Motorola Solutions Offers Subscription-Based PTT Service in Europe, Mexico
Wednesday, July 15, 2020 | Comments

Motorola Solutions launched WAVE PTX, a subscription-based group communications service that delivers voice and multimedia content via broadband and Wi-Fi. The service is currently available in the U.K., European Union and Mexico.

WAVE PTX allows users to seamlessly communicate across any Android or iOS device with the Mobile App, purpose-built WAVE PTX TLK series devices and PCs and tablets connected via Wi-Fi or cellular network. The cloud-based service is designed to meet the operational needs of various industries.

The solution includes media-rich features such as group text, location sharing, photos and videos. A video streaming capability allows users access to live video, at the push of a button, to provide other relevant users a view of critical events as they unfold. WAVE PTX allows organizations that rely on two-way radio communications, such as Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) and TETRA, to connect their existing system to the broadband service, thus expanding coverage and functionality.

“Today more than ever, organizations are looking for communication solutions to help them stay connected with increasingly mobile workforces,” said Vivienne Francis, EMEA vice president channels at Motorola Solutions. “WAVE PTX brings together the simplicity of PTT communication with the richness of broadband to provide organizations with the ultimate group communications service.”

In addition to the Mobile App and TLK Series devices, the WAVE PTX solution includes WAVE PTX Dispatch, a web-based dispatch software that helps organize and coordinate team communications. This includes precise mapping tools to track the location of people and resources, which helps increase situational awareness and protect workers in times of emergency.

To accompany the WAVE PTX service, Motorola Solutions introduced the TLK 150 mobile two-way radio, designed for use in vehicle, with one-button PTT and hands-free accessories to help avoid driver distraction. The TLK series also includes the TLK 100, a handheld device designed exclusively for broadband PTT.

Recently, Motorola Solutions signed contracts with three major European mobile service providers — Dutch telecom provider KPN, French telecom operator SFR and Swedish carrier Telia — to provide their customers with carrier-integrated mission-critical broadband PTT. KPN and SFR are already providing network-integrated mission-critical broadband PTT service to their customers and have signed contracts with Dutch Rail in the Netherlands and the French National Railway company SNCF in France.

Motorola Solutions’ broadband PTT service is a Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards-compliant and future-ready solution that supports seamless interoperability between users on professional mobile radio (PMR) systems as well as 5G, 4G and 3G cellular networks.
