Why PTT?

In numerous industries, using push-to-talk is a technology that has become irreplaceable. PTT customers value the convenience and productivity of being able to set up individual or group calls with the push of a button and instantly communicate over the speaker of the recipient’s handset (vs. taking the time to dial, answer, go through greetings, etc., all before getting down to business). For example, a dispatcher can communicate location and delivery instructions over PTT faster than it would take most drivers to answer a ringing phone. For a construction worker, hearing messages burst out of a speaker on their handset is more convenient than putting down tools and removing gloves to answer a standard phone call. Since PTT calls are half-duplex, they are typically more informal, sporadic, and business-focused than a standard phone call.

Characteristics of a PTT Service

Frequent PTT users share the key characteristics of the service:

  • Speed
    Sub-second latency (the time it takes for users to volley back and forth)
  • Simplicity
    Easy to understand, access and use, as simple as pushing a button to initiate a call
  • Call Bursts
    Less than a minute in talk time on average, allowing users to ‘get things done’ quickly without taking the time that is common for typical phone calls
  • Group Calls
    Ability to pull multiple people together into a voice call instantly and simultaneously, without the inefficiencies of scheduling calls, reserving conference bridges, and waiting for participants to join
  • Handsets and Accessories
    Rugged PTT handsets built with military-grade specifications to ensure durability, coupled with special accessories for ease of operation (e.g., Remote Speaker Microphone or FBI Inner Ear Mic)
