29 WWW.RADIORESOURCE.COM 800-872-3884 WAVE™ WORK GROUP COMMUNICATIONS Push-To-Talk (PTT) is no longer a technology-driven term, it is an enterprise-wide capability. It enables teams to communicate instantly, reliably and productively together to improve business and elevate service. Today, broadband networks and devices are so ubiquitous that any worker can be connected to any device in their pocket or on their desk with real-time communications through PTT. With interoperable broadband PTT, everyone can become part of the conversation without concern about which device or network they use. The revolution is being push-to-talked about. Today, virtually everyone can benefit from push-to-talk (PTT) across their organization. PTT brings the immediacy and spontaneity to connect different personnel together seamlessly. Regardless of their location, the network they’re on and the device they use, PTT makes everyone part of the conversation for truly enterprise-wide communications. PTT affords unlimited opportunities for organizations of every size – from the small police department in a rural community to the large, distributed multinational enterprise that needs supply chain efficiencies across the board. PTT is the pathway that unifies communications and facilitates collaboration for greater operational efficiency. Just as texting and tweets are the conduit for much of social media, PTT is transforming the way enterprises use voice. BENEFIT FROM ENTERPRISE-WIDE COMMUNICATIONS LIKE NEVER BEFORE A secure broadband PTT application like WAVE™ Work Group Communications enables instant, real-time communication and everywhere connectivity. It streamlines collaboration with Land Mobile Radio (LMR) systems and new technologies, such as 4G LTE broadband, plus a complete array of disparate devices – including two-way radios, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers and landline phones. WAVE delivers communication capabilities for agencies, organizations and enterprises like never before. This intuitive suite of software applications helps them create and manage a seamlessly-connected environment by utilizing the technology investments they already have. MAKE LMR INTEROPERABILITY AN EVERYDAY REALITY Communication among people is a critical component of the daily operations of any organization. For many, it can be the difference between success and failure; in dangerous jobs and hazardous environments, between life and death. Yet often those who need to be connected can’t because they are on different systems, devices and networks. WAVE lifts the barriers of communication incompatibility by assuring large-scale interoperability. Adjacent agencies, responders and teams that bring their own LMR systems to an incident can converse easily and seamlessly using WAVE. By leveraging the technologies already in place, WAVE makes incumbent equipment work harder and smarter. EXPERIENCE THE IMMEDIACY OF BROADBAND PTT Broadband-only PTT is perfect for organizations that value the immediacy and spontaneity of group communications but do not need the performance, capacity and reliability of a private LMR network. Because broadband networks are so ubiquitous and so many workers bring their own mobile devices to work, they can benefit from real-time communications through broadband PTT. WAVE facilitates this because it works over any data network, freeing workers to use their own network devices. Plus WAVE enables richer data capabilities such as presence and mapping. EXTEND THE CAPABILITIES OF LMR TO BROADBAND For those who can’t or don’t carry a two-way radio but want to connect to them, WAVE extends the all-important capabilities of LMR networks to mobile devices. So when a city official needs to be updated on an incident, he can use his smartphone to connect to police in the precinct. Or if a utility director must handle an outage on the road, he can use his tablet to be updated by personnel at the power plant. WAVE makes extensibility from two-way radios to other devices seamless.
