Walkie Talkies have come a long way since first being developed for the military in the early 20th century. The longevity of walkie-talkie use from both businesses and individuals is a testament to its reliability as a communication tool.
However, in a world where technology is rapidly evolving, where will the walkie talkie go next?
Taking PTT (Push to Talk) further, Motorola WAVE walkie talkies have the capability to instantly connect teams across different devices, locations and even networks. So, what makes them different?
Unlike a traditional walkie talkie that operates over the radio frequency spectrum, Motorola WAVE operates over 4G.
Push-to-talk over cellular or 4G radios, are just two of the names used for radios that operate over cellular networks. Wherever you have signal or access to Wi-Fi, you can seamlessly communicate with team members.
WAVE PTX is Motorola’s independent network. A multimedia communication solution that brings users an affordable broadband push-to-talk solution on a subscription-based service. WAVE PTX instantly connects teams at the push of a button.
With a multi network sim, it will also automatically switch to the strongest network available in the area. Meaning users can even be cross borders, and the device will effortlessly roam as the user travels between countries.
There is also an option to have advanced safeguarding features such as emergency calling, discreet listening, checking on remote users and more.
Motorola Wave Devices
Evolve LTE Handheld
Everything you need in one device. A walkie talkie and android phone ‘hybrid’, the rugged Evolve device is designed with public safety in mind. Combining the user experience to get the best of both, having PTT capabilities and all the functions of an android device. Not only this, but you can also live stream video to other users and dispatchers, providing increased user security and enhanced communication.
Instant, ready to go communication. For those users who simply just need to communicate with other team members. With the appearance of a traditional walkie talkie, the robust radio will withstand everyday wear and tear. Whilst providing broadband push-to-talk that’s easy to use and manage.
Mobile App for Smartphones
Not only does WAVE have walkie talkies available that fulfill user needs, but there is also a mobile app available that will give you all the PTT capabilities from your mobile device. Meaning you can communicate with the other WAVE walkie talkies and vice versa.
All of the available devices and the app are compatible with each other. So, users who require the device can use it for talking with a user communicating via the mobile app.
So what makes Wave PTX different?
This is not to say PTTOC (push-to-talk over cellular) will be the best solution in all scenarios. For example, where users are in a remote location with little access to a network. A traditional walkie talkie system will still be the go-to. However, with internet now readily available in most cases, Motorola WAVE walkie talkies and push-to-talk over cellular are viable solutions for many. Shaping 21st century PTT communication.
