Motorola Solutions has acquired Kodiak Networks as part of an agreement to expand its push-to-talk (PTT) offerings.

The acquisition agreement is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close later in 2017.

Kodiak partners with mobile network operators globally to offer its cloud-based PTT solution and management platform, which operates over 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

The acquisition of Kodiak adds a complementary, carrier-integrated PTT-over-cellular solution to Motorola Solutions’ existing WAVE PTT portfolio, which today includes solutions for high-performance PTT and flexible, ‘over-the-top’ broadband PTT. WAVE connects disparate networks to enable communication between smartphones, radios and computers via wireless or wireline broadband.

“In the quickly evolving space of broadband PTT, we expect the Kodiak acquisition to expand our offerings and strengthen our ability to provide solutions to mobile network operators, especially for commercial markets,” said Bruce Brda, executive vice president, Products and Services, Motorola Solutions.

“Kodiak has proven expertise in meeting the demanding security, reliability and performance needs of large mobile network operators that provide communications solutions to commercial customers,” said John Vice, chief executive officer, Kodiak.

Kodiak was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Plano, Texas. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
