How does Push to Talk work ?
Push to Talk (PTT) is like turning your mobile into a walkie talkie but with a global range. Instead of transmitting/receiving radio frequencies, Push to Talk uses the GPRS data connection on your mobile to send and receive calls using VOIP technology.
Keep your mobile network
No need to change network as we're plugged straight into the O2, Vodafone and Orange networks. Push to Talk is added to your mobile’s functions without changing your current supplier. We change the configuration of your GPRS settings (namely the APN) so that there’s no delay between your PTT chat because priority is given to our data for voice. Also it means there’s no drain on your battery.
Keep your handset
There’s no need for new equipment as Push to Talk works on most Nokias and HTC handsets. New handsets are constantly being added to the list that will support our Push To Talk service. To see the range of PTT compatible handsets
You will have to pay data charges to your current mobile operator, so you need to check what data package you currently have with them. But we’ve managed to compress the data needed for voice to only 1kbps, And data is only used when you’re speaking but not for any elapsed time during a conversation, so we estimate an average of 20Mb is required per month.
How do I get PTT?
- We text you software that embeds itself into your mobile.
- The software automaticaly links to your contact group and sets up the PTT button.
- Press your PTT button, wait for the beep, then begin to speak.
- Your message can be heard by everyone on your contact list.
- IF you want to speak someone individually, just select that persons name from your contact list and press your PTT button to talk
-Remember, whoever is pushing the button is the speaker
FOR THE TECHIE
The PC client allows office-based staff to stay in touch with field staff direct from their PC. This allows close integration and co-ordination in a way that would not be possible on a traditional RF system.
Internet Packet Radio System (IPRS) Server
The IPRS server handles all the Push to Talk call routing. It manages all the user and groups settings on the PTT service and routes 1:1, group and “ad-hoc” conference calls.
Network Management System (NMS) Server
The NMS is used to control the IPRS server, including the creation of new customers, adding/removing/edit user accounts, and creation of user groups.
Mobile Operator Access Points (APN)
The APNs are gateways between the mobile GPRS (data) networks and Push To Talk Communications Ltd. End-users configure their Push To Talk mobile to use the Push To Talk Communications Ltd APN, which provides an IP path between the PTT back-end infrastructure and the Push To Talk client on the mobile handsets.
Many current GSM handsets are Push to Talk capable and require little or no modification. User’s handsets are provisioning automatically using SMS messages sent from the Push To Talk Communications Ltd PTT provisioning system
