The Benefits of Push to Talk Over Cellular (PoC) Systems

In fast-paced working environments, it’s vital that your teams can get things done quickly and on-time. Improving collaboration between employees and departments is an effective way to maximise productivity and improve decision-making, but your staff need the correct tools to communicate instantly and effectively.

Push to Talk Over Cellular (PoC) blends the functionality of smartphone and radio technology in an easy-to-use, portable device, harnessing 3G, 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi networks to deliver effective communication solutions.

Push-to-Talk Over Cellular systems are becoming increasingly popular as businesses recognise the many benefits to their operations:

1) Cost-efficiency

Conventional radio requires considerable investment in infrastructure, such as cabling and repeaters, which increases implementation costs. PoC, however, offers better cost-efficiency, with no additional infrastructure. Once set up, users only need to press the Push-to-Talk button to start a call – it really is that simple!

2) Connect with your team instantly

With Push-to-Talk Over Cellular systems, you benefit from the ability to communicate with colleagues instantly. One press of a button puts you in immediate touch with your entire team over huge distances, without the need to dial a phone number or open an app – a great timesaver when you need to communicate quickly.

3) Crystal-clear sound quality

Perfect sound quality is essential when you’re communicating with colleagues, particularly if you work outdoors or in noisy environments. With PoC systems, you will benefit from superior sound quality, no matter where you are, so you can be confident that your team will hear important messages and instructions every time.

4) Unlimited range

Traditional radios have a limited geographical range, which proves frustrating and problematic if your team is unable to communicate due to poor sound quality, interference, or loss of contact. Push-to-Talk radio enables long-distance communication without the need for repeaters, which expands the network coverage. Like a mobile phone, you can communicate with other users locally, nationally, and internationally, but with a host of additional features to improve the experience.

5) Broadband Data

Because PoC devices and apps operate via broadband networks like 3G, 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi, you can push huge amounts of data through a PoC solution, when compared with a “narrowband” PMR radio system. In practical terms this provides benefits such as a near-limitless number of channels for radio users, greater quantities of data such as GPS flowing through the system and more advanced functionality, such as being able to see the number of radio users on a channel at a given time.
