European carrier Orange today announced plans to deploy Push-To-Talk (PTT) service in 10 European countries this year, starting with the UK and France during the second quarter. Orange will use RTX technology from Kodiak Networks to power its "Talk Now" service. Unlike competing VoIP systems, RTX uses standard voice channels to provide industry-leading setup and latency times. The initial hardware offered will be the Treo 600, with ruggedized and traditional consumer phones from multiple manufacturers to follow. At least one U.S. CDMA carrier is also planning to deploy Kodiak PTT technology.
