Tait, Sonim partner to offer ultra-rugged smartphones with PTToC solution

Sonim Technologies and Tait Communications have partnered to deliver solutions for customers who want to provide some employees with seamless mobile radio interoperability on rugged cellphones, the companies said.

Sonim´s unique ultra-rugged Android smartphones provide a platform for UnifyVoice, Tait´s push-to-talk over cellular (PTToC) solution. Sonim´s XP6 and XP7 devices, with dedicated push-to-talk and emergency buttons, deliver a rugged mobile radio-centric user interface appropriate to the mission-critical sectors Tait serves.

Sonim´s ultra-rugged smartphone platform running Tait UnifyVoice software allows public safety agencies and industrial enterprises to cost effectively extend their LMR networks to include non-radio users, freeing up critical radio capacity.

Tait recently launched UnifyVoice at the IWCE 2016 demonstrating integration to its LMR systems leveraging ESChat software from SLA Corporation, along with P25 ISSI and DMR AIS gateways and unique seamless roaming capabilities.
