Tait Communications and Sonim Technologies partnered to deliver highly efficient solutions for customers who want to provide some employees with seamless mobile radio interoperability on rugged cellphones.
Sonim’s 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 (PTT) and emergency buttons, deliver a mobile radio-centric user interface appropriate to the mission-critical sectors that Tait serves.
“The ability to withstand whatever conditions the job demands is a hallmark of Tait equipment, and Sonim has a similarly high standard with its cellular handsets,” said Bruce Mazza, Tait Communications vice president of solutions marketing. “Sonim’s approach to creating ultra-rugged hardware built around an open Android ecosystem is exactly what is required by many of the LMR sectors Tait serves.”
Sonim’s smartphone platform running Tait software allows public-safety agencies and industrial enterprises to cost effectively extend their LMR networks to include non-radio users, freeing critical radio capacity.
Tait launched UnifyVoice in March, demonstrating integration to its Project 25 (P25) and Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) technology leveraging ESChat software from SLA.
