Tait, Sonim partner for PTToC

Tait Communications and Sonim Technologies have joined forces to offer the former’s UnifyVoice PTT over cellular solution on the latter’s XP6 and XP7 rugged Android devices.

The companies claim the combination will “deliver highly efficient solutions for customers who want to provide some employees with seamless mobile radio interoperability on rugged cell phones”.

Sonim’s platform running UnifyVoice will enable public safety agencies and industrial enterprises to cost-effectively extend their LMR networks to include non-radio users, freeing up critical radio capacity, the companies said in a press release.

The Android smartphones provide users with a familiar, easy-to-use experience with its built-in dedicated push-to-talk button, emergency key, long battery life, extra-loud audio and overall ruggedness.

“The ability to withstand whatever conditions the job demands is a hallmark of Tait equipment and Sonim has a similarly high standard with its cellular handsets,” said Bruce Mazza, Tait Communications’ VP of Solutions Marketing.

“Through UnifyVoice, customers can supply some of their employees with an appropriate, work-fit cellular phone that interacts seamlessly with their radio network users — perhaps people who would not normally be frontline but who, especially in times of emergency, need to be in communication with those who mainly use the mobile radio network to do their jobs,” he added.

“We’re excited to be able to work with Tait, the clear thought leader in the LMR industry,” said Robert Escalle, Sonim Technologies’ VP of Public Safety and Defence.

“They have really committed to a truly open ecosystem approach to meet the evolving needs of mission-critical communications.”

Tait launched UnifyVoice at IWCE 2016, demonstrating tight integration to its LMR systems, leveraging ESChat software from SLA Corporation, along with P25 ISSI and DMR AIS gateways and unique seamless roaming capabilities.
