AT&T Trialing New PTT Service for Business Customers
AT&T today announced a new push-to-talk service that it is trialing with select business customers. The service makes use of Kodiak Network's technology on AT&T's HSPA and LTE networks to deliver walkie-talkie conversations to smartphones, rugged phones, and feature phones. It will work with smartphone apps, support large contact databases, and offer fast call connection times. It is also compatible with existing mobile radio systems, such as Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and Private Mobile Radio (PMR). AT&T made it clear that this program is being used to test the effectiveness of the new service and will rely on user-feedback to tweak the final product offering.
