Push-to-Talk enables emergency management workers to communicate quickly and efficiently when time is of the essence.
With this product, emergency management teams can be in the know about whatever situation they are currently dealing with, using just the push of a button. The device itself is designed to be durable to endure harsh conditions. Like all satellite technology, it uses the satellite network, which allows users to have access to service virtually anywhere on the planet, even in the most remote locations. The user interface allows you to make voice calls, send SMS, SOS and communicate through push-to-talk.
This device gives users push-to-talk service status, so they know they’re in range to communicate with their crew. Users can set up a talk group so that multiple team members can speak through push-to-talk at the same time. Users know who is talking with whom through the device’s talker ID. They can also see the speaker’s distance and bearing, if they need to find one of their team members. Administrators can keep the push-to-talk line secure through a web-based tool, the Iridium Push-to-Talk Command Center.
Emergency management workers are frequently on the go, traveling wherever they are most needed. This device allows workers to communicate with one another whether they’re on foot, inside a vehicle or inside a building. They can stay in constant communication when they need it most, no matter where they are or what the situation is.
What can reliable, instant communication mean to emergency service providers? Quick communication in emergencies saves lives. These technological advances are allowing teams to better coordinate to deal with all types of situations, from forest fires to auto accidents to active shooter events. Being able to locate their team, knowing who is talking and communicating instantly is allowing emergency services to respond faster than ever, ensuring the safety of these teams and the public at large. This isn’t just about staying in touch – this is about being one step ahead of the threat and keeping the public out of harm’s way. Satellite technology allows the reliable connection to make this happen.
This device is something that has staying power. Users won’t have to replace it in a few years in order to work on the ever-evolving satellite network. Iridium is compatible with the current network and the Iridium NEXT network. Iridium is in the process of launching 66 new next-generation, low-earth satellites to bring you even more reliable connectivity. These devices will continue to work on their network far into the future because of their durability and Iridium’s forward-thinking ingenuity, allowing emergency workers to continue to save lives for years to come.
