ESChat partnered with EGC International to launch push-to-talk (PTT) service in Colombia. Service will be managed by EGC subsidiaries EICOM, SAS and EGC Colombia SAS.

The EGC solution will be launched in November 2020 as TalkPlus, powered by ESChat. The TalkPlus service will have the ESChat feature set, which includes encrypted PTT voice, encrypted multimedia group messaging and live location tracking and mapping. The companies have completed a commercial agreement and are now preparing for the commercial launch.

"The TalkPlus service powered by ESChat, provides a fast and organized communication experience, with integrated multimedia group messaging and location-based features to make professional communications secure and reliable for our customers," said Arnaldo González, chairman of the board of EGC, EICOM and SAS. "Through our collaboration with ESChat, we're helping businesses empower their mobile workforces while driving agility, cost savings and a smooth transition for existing iDEN customer and new B2B PoC users.”

Used by all branches of the U.S. Military, as well as federal, state and local public-safety agencies, ESChat is able to operate over and across any wireless network, including all commercial carriers, private 3G/4G/5G networks and Wi-Fi. ESChat supports standards-based interoperability with LMR radio networks, including Project 25 (P25) via the native Inter RF Subsystem Interface (ISSI) protocol and Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) via the native Application Interface Specification (AIS) protocol. ESChat also supports interoperability via radio over IP (RoIP) to all LMR radio networks, regardless of radio technology or operating frequency band.

"EGC International's selection of ESChat to power the TalkPlus Group Communications platform is a great honor,” said ESChat Chief Revenue Officer John Dilley. “EGC is led by a seasoned team of telecom industry professionals. This combined with our industry leading service and technology, TalkPlus is positioned to take command of the PTT market in Colombia. I look forward to a very successful partnership with EGC as we begin a global expansion of our market territories."
