Push-to-talk software is a type of communication technology that works when a user presses a key or button to initiate conversation, and then releases it when done speaking so the other person can respond. Push-to-talk is faster than communicating with text messages since you can continue talking without having to wait for a response, and it’s less disruptive because there is no ringing or other audio alert to initiate a push-to-talk conversation.

Push to Talk Plus can work  for any size organization–from small businesses to  enterprises and public sector agencies that require instant communication. Push to Talk Plus is also beneficial to businesses such as construction, distribution, energy and other industries in which field work and remote sites are critical.

Push to Talk Plus can support up to 3,000 users with Advanced Group, an optional add-on.

The Push to Talk Plus application can work on devices connected to other carrier networks, helping to keep everyone on your team connected. In addition, Push to Talk Plus is interoperable with LMR so that employees with radios can communicate with those that have other devices, such as a smartphone, tablet or even a basic landline.
