Iridium® PTT = Fast, Simple, Global. The way Push to Talk (PTT) was meant be…..
G Comm are one of the Iridium® official launch partners to offer the new Iridium® PTT. This new and exciting service is the only truly global, handheld, Satellite Radio Communications system covering pole to pole, from desert to sea. With Iridium’s network of 66 Low Earth Orbiting satellites, it means that secure communications have never been simpler. There is no requirement for ground infrastructure and the transmission is relayed to the satellite network and routed to the correct talk groups and geographical areas. PTT is flexible, configurable on the fly and the ability to rapidly change the network to allow more users or organisations to share the network.
The Iridium® PTT is not just a radio, at the flick of a button, it reverts to a normal Satellite phone, allowing for normal functionality that you would expect of handset, to make and receive calls to and from, landlines, mobiles and other satellite users.
Only Iridium® can deliver push-to-talk the way it was meant to be – fast, easy to use, and adaptable to your needs – all on the world’s largest push-to-talk network.
