Motorola Solutions Launches PTT Service in Australia
Wednesday, October 09, 2019 | Comments

Motorola Solutions is launching WAVE PTX Government in Australia, a push-to-talk (PTT) service that includes Critical Connect, a feature that connects multiple public-safety agencies to secure, real-time voice and data communications.

The service also provides a set of features based on the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) mission-critical PTT (MCPTT) standard including multimedia messaging, emergency calling and remote monitoring.

The product is hosted within Microsoft’s Azure Australia Central, which provides secure, resilient cloud access within the Australian-owned facilities of Canberra Data Centres.

“Public-safety agencies need reliable voice and multimedia communication to form a clear picture of what’s happening on the ground during major emergencies,” said Motorola Solutions Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand Con Balaskas. “WAVE PTX Government enables first responders working with different agencies to communicate easily, regardless of whether they use a two-way radio, smartphone or other device. This type of capability is invaluable for managing major incidents such as the recent early season bushfires in Queensland and New South Wales.”

Australian government agencies can access the product via subscriptions that enable them to choose the carrier network provider that best suits their needs. Future releases of the service will support real-time video communications. The service with Critical Connect can be interconnected with existing LMR radio networks including Motorola Solutions’ and other Project 25 (P25) networks.
