UScellular, Tango Tango Partner on Interoperability
Wednesday, July 21, 2021 | Comments

UScellular and Tango Tango partnered to expand radio reach, enable agency collaboration and extend the life of LMR systems for public-safety officials.

UScellular’s wireless network and the advanced networking, mobile and cloud technologies from Tango Tango, help expand the coverage and capabilities of a traditional LMR system ideal for push-to-talk (PTT) services used by police, fire and emergency operations.

“Agencies who depend on our fast, reliable, wireless network can keep better connected with the addition of Tango Tango’s affordable and simple communication solution,” said Kimberly Green-Kerr, senior vice president (SVP) of enterprise sales and operations at UScellular. “We are pleased to add Tango Tango to our critical connectivity portfolio of solutions. UScellular customers will benefit from more efficient agency operations, improved response times, and the right communications tools to keep teams connected when they need it most.”

By connecting almost any smartphone or tablet via cellular network to radio frequencies used by police, fire and emergency services, first responders from different agencies who use the Tango Tango app are able to work together more easily. Similarly, teams from the same agency are better able to communicate with each other when they are outside of the radio range.

“We’ve been able to expand and strengthen those departments who’ve experienced diminished communication capabilities in the past,” said Beck Mitchell, vice president of sales, Tango Tango. “Our relationship with UScellular will only reinforce this service offering and provide their current customers the opportunity for enhanced interoperability.”

With this collaboration, users are no longer limited by the geographical footprint of their traditional radio system, which can be limited in range and disrupted by rural or hilly landscapes. UScellular critical connectivity solutions offer first responders priority services, PTT, secure private networks and enhanced LMR interoperability that can bundle with unlimited data plans, rugged devices and disaster response to keep teams better connected.
