PoC Radios – Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Radios

Share This Post

PoC Radios or to give the full title, Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Radios. This is a system of communication that takes its UK history from the Dolphin network. The Dolphin network started in 1999 on a nationwide basis, combining cellular telephony, mobile radio, and interactive messaging in a single handset or in-vehicle terminal.

The Dolphin network was a great concept and introduced the push-to-talk over cellular solution at a time when two-way radio development had largely stood still for 20 years. The cost of the network and the lack of uptake from clients meant that Dolphin went into administration. It is now under new ownership and to this date still the only digital network in the world. That being said Push-to-talk over cellular has taken a slightly different route.

Push-to-Talk Over Cellular in 2022

Push-to-Talk Over Cellular has come a long way and in 2022. The leading manufacturers now focus on integrating multiple devices across different cellular networks. The aim is to provide seamless connectivity to all staff members regardless of their location, network, and device.

PoC Radio Devices

Two-way radios are traditionally very rugged and are used in harsh environments where mobile phones would easily break. For this reason manufacturers such as Motorola Solutions, Icom and Entel have created their own PoC radio devices. The devices are built in the traditional formats of a two-way radio whereby you have a designated push-to-talk button. The handsets come with integrated SIM cards. This enables the devices to connect to cellular networks and enjoy the network coverage that cellular networks offer. In addition, these devices can communicate with mobile phone dispatch systems that have the applicable push-to-talk app. In the case of Motorola Solutions if you have a capacity plus trunked network solution you can also integrate the devices onto that network as well.

PoC Mobile Phones Apps

There are numerous mobile phone networks within the UK, Europe, and the world. By installing the applicable application to your mobile phone you can turn it into a push to talk over a cellular device regardless of the network. In the case of Motorola Solutions, you can now communicate from your mobile phone directly to a radio user on-site or directly with the dispatch operator. this can be in the form of texts or voice. You can also send files to multiple devices.

PoC Radio Dispatch System

A Push-to-talk Over cellular dispatch system can be implemented at a central location and be used to manage all aspects hope you all communications. A PoC dispatch system can allow you to share details with an individual or your entire team via text, photo, video, or file attachment. You can also track your mobile teams on a map and efficiently dispatch based on real-time location.
