Making space for two-way

In partnership with Hytera, Global Beam Telecom, Cobham Satcom and Inmarsat have launched a push-to-talk (PTT) system for businesses in the Middle East.

BGAN PRISM PTT+ will be a satellite connectivity solution available through Hytera mobile radios. It will help businesses overcome coverage redundancy and operational downtime associated with traditional radio systems. The unified network solution combines satellite connectivity, radio systems (LMR/DMR) and cellular devices (3G/LTE) to create the PTT offering.

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

The BGAN PRISM PTT+, one of Global Beam Telecom’s integrated connectivity solutions, features Inmarsat’s ELERA capabilities and brings together hardware components from Cobham’s EXPLORER 323 terminal and EXPLORER mobile gateway, and Hytera’s lightweight, robust, digital two-way radio (PD505) and its digital mobile radio (MD785i).
