The Benefits of Push-To-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) Radio Systems

The Benefits of Push-To-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) Radio Systems

Push to Talk over Cellular, sometimes called Nationwide PTT or LTE radio systems have become popular in many industries across the globe. The systems are now becoming increasingly popular in the UK and there is a good reason for this due to the number of benefits you can gain from a system which we illustrate below:

Long distance communications
With conventional radios, communicating over a long distance is very difficult. You tend to need equipment like repeaters to expand your radio coverage/network. However, with POC you can now communicate with your team not just locally, but nationally or even internationally.

Low start-up costs
Unlike traditional radio there are no requirements for infrastructure investment. No need to invest in repeaters, cabling, or radio programming. Once set up by us at Icom UK, it's as simple as turning on the unit and starting the call by pushing the PTT (push-to-talk) button.

Instant communication
With just a press of a button, Push-to-talk over cellular (POC) allows you to communicate with individuals within your team or groups over distances instantly. With the Icom LTE radio system, this is over a private closed network using a high level of encryption on a cloud server securing your private data and communications.

Great sound quality
You will be able to experience superior sound quality even in the harshest environments. Thanks to the excellent noise-cancelling features on the Icom IP501H/IP503H handset, you will never need to worry about getting your voice heard.

Range of Features
Good PoC radio systems should have a variety of useful features like an emergency button, Man down and Lone worker function (which the Icom LTE radios have). These features are ideal for environments where employees are working independently and need to be in contact constantly by voice or in the case of an emergency.

Easy to Administer
Radio systems like the Icom LTE radio system can be administered/programmed over the air without the radio needing to be returned to the dealer.

These are just a few of the great benefits the Icom LTE radio system can provide, so, if you are looking for regional or national communication scheme without the hassle or financial commitment of radio infrastructure, the Icom LTE radio system with its excellent audio, full duplex communication and excellent health and safety features is your answer.
