MONTREAL, Que. — Bell has launched Bell PTT, the next generation in instant Push-to-talk (PTT) communications.
The company claims its Bell PTT is North America’s first push-to-talk solution leveraging the high-speed data and broad coverage benefits of 4G wireless.
“Bell is proud to be first to introduce the next generation of Push-to-talk service to Canadian business customers. Combining fast data speeds, coverage for 97% of the Canadian population and the latest Push-to-talk phones and features, Bell PTT is a powerful and innovative communications service built to serve in the most demanding business environments now and into the future,” said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. “With the advanced 4G network capabilities offered by Bell PTT, instant communications just got better.”
Canadian industries of all kinds make extensive use of instant-contact PTT services, including transportation, construction, oil and gas, mining, security and a range of other vertical markets. Offering instant communications at the press of a button with one or up to 100 other users, Bell PTT offers a range of communications features, extensive Canadian coverage and US roaming, data speeds of up to 21 Megabits per second, and new cloud services such as Contact Administrative Tool (CAT) that enables business to update and manage their contact lists through an online portal.
Bell PTT is available now on multiple devices, including the BlackBerry® Curve 9360 smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G superphone, and the Sonim XP5520 BOLT from Sonim Technologies.
