Verizon Wireless Offers Integrated PTT and Land Mobile Radio
Today Verizon Wireless announced a new offering for public safety and other agencies that rely on Land Mobile Radio systems for communication. Verizon, by partnering with Catalyst Communications, is offering push-to-talk interoperability with LMR systems. This will provide public safety agencies with a much larger footprint for effective communication by having access to Verizon's network as either a back-up or primary means of communication in addition to the LMR. Verizon is offering a number of different plan options that include combinations of PTT, normal voice, and the LMR systems already in place.
