Wednesday, July 06, 2022 | Comments

Global Beam Telecom, Inmarsat and Cobham Satcom announced the launch of a new push-to-talk (PTT) offering, BGAN PRISM PTT+, in partnership with Hytera. The complete satellite-enhanced connectivity solution, now available through Hytera mobile radios, will help businesses overcome coverage redundancy and operational downtime associated with traditional radio systems.

The new unified network solution combines expertise in satellite connectivity, radio systems and cellular devices (3G/LTE) to create a unique PTT offering that will accelerate advanced connectivity adoption among businesses in the Middle East.

Supported by Inmarsat's BGAN service and powered by the company's global ELERA (L-band) satellite network, the solution provides reliability of 99.9%+ uptime and enables seamless radio over IP capabilities. It will ensure businesses have access to real-time communications and telemetry capabilities, increasing their visibility of operations and the safety of remote workers and assets.

"In this new partnership, Inmarsat is proud to build on our longstanding relationships with Global Beam Telecom and Cobham Satcom, by welcoming Hytera into the fold,” said Inmarsat Enterprise President Mike Carter. “This collaboration will be a game-changer for remote workers in the Middle East. It will combine top-of-the-range hardware and software with the best connectivity to provide a new, unmatched PTT service for customers.”

The solution will transform customer experience across three key areas: coverage, interoperability and capability. Incorporating satellite coverage provides exceptional network resilience, enabling seamless switching between radio and satellite while sustaining constant coverage anywhere in the world. Enhanced interoperability will allow for a range of communication methods to mix and connect effortlessly and encourage cross entity transmission, while digitalization will provide enhanced end-user capabilities such as conversation recall, replay and expanded data-analysis possibilities.

The unique BGAN PRISM PTT+, one of Global Beam Telecom's integrated connectivity solutions, features Inmarsat's highly-reliable ELERA capabilities and brings together hardware components from Cobham's EXPLORER 323 terminal and EXPLORER Mobile Gateway and Hytera's lightweight but robust digital two-way radio (PD505) and professional Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) MD785i. The partnership provides the ultimate offering, supplying real-time GPS, telemetry and PTT capabilities to create a consistent solution for businesses.

"We are looking forward to sharing BGAN PRISM PTT+ with our customers,” said Global Beam Managing Director Shabeer Mohammad. “As the system integrator, configuring the expertise of the four companies, all of which boast years of experience in their respective fields, provided us the perfect opportunity to bring the ultimate flexible connectivity solution to enterprise customers."
