Introducing WAVE PTX – Broadband Push To Talk
Seamless communication across radios, mobiles and tablets over 4G & wi-fi
What is Broadband Push To Talk?
Broadband push to talk provides the function of a traditional two-way radio network, but over wi-fi and 4G, rather than UHF or VHF radio frequencies. WAVE PTX is a network-independent subscription service from Motorola Solutions that allows any wi-fi or 4G enabled smartphone to work as a traditional two-way radio. You can run a new network, composed entirely of WAVE PTX devices, or integrate with an existing digital radio network.
How Can WAVE PTX Benefit My Business?
- You can turn your mobile device into a push-to-talk handset using the WAVE PTX mobile app and get instant communication at the touch of a button.
- Very quick and easy to setup – no difficult installations, or infrastructure requirements.
- Use your existing SIM and data plan, so there are no hidden costs.
- The app works on Google Android, iOS or PC so there are no restrictions to enable WAVE PTX to work on your platform of choice.
- Use your wi-fi or a 4G connection to communicate with your team on their existing digital radio network, from anywhere in Europe.
You get the peace of mind to know that you can still be part of the conversation, even when not on site with your team. Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your organisation by reducing the barriers to communication. The subscription based service means that costs are fixed, with no usage-based call charges, allowing you to easily balance your budget.
Mobile App subscriptions are less than £100 per year
WAVE PTX can be used throughout your organisation, using a variety of hardware:
- Front Office: Tablet
- In the field: Smartphone or Hands Free Car Kit
- On site: Digital Radio
- Back Office: Desktop
Both large organisations with multiple communication needs and smaller, more dynamic operations can benefit from the increased efficiency that WAVE PTX will provide.
If GPS location is important to you, the WAVE PTX Despatch client is a browser based application which can display the position of all users on Google maps, show historical positions and allow a despatcher to communicate and message with all users:
WAVE PTX Options
The benefits of WAVE PTX and a rugged two-way radio on a Europe-wide network.
The TLK offers a slim and lightweight form factor that can withstand everyday knocks and drops and combines 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connectivity to provide fast and reliable broadband PTT communications.
You can have a mix of TLK handsets, WAVE PTX apps running on your smartphone and traditional Motorola Solutions handportables, to enable the best possible communication on site.
The TLK 100 can be provided with a purpose built hands free car kit for safe and secure use when in a vehcile.
The TLK 150 can be quickly deployed in your vehicle fleet, allowing you to safely communicate with a single button push. You can even use the TLK 150 with your current compatible MOTOTRBO systems, LMR and smartphones. There’s no costly or time-consuming FCC or spectrum licensing, or manual programming required.
The TLK units come with the WAVE PTX App pre-installed, so your comms network can be up and running in no time.
Connecting WAVE PTX To Your Existing Network
Are you working from home, but need to keep in touch with communications on site? Connect WAVE PTX to your existing MOTOTRBO solution using a ‘WAVE PTX Gateway’. This allows multiple concurrent conversations, across both the existing network and WAVE PTX, through a single gateway. This is supported on both Motorola Solutions Capacity Max and Capacity Plus systems.
