Push-to-Talk (a.k.a PTT or Press-to-Talk/Transmit) is a method of communicating that involves pushing a button and speaking into a receiver in order to transmit a message. Think Walkie-Talkies or CB radios. The overall goal of Push-to-Talk communication is to separate voice transmission and reception. Today’s Push-to-Talk technology operates in much the same way using modern phones and apps like Zello and ESChat.

What is PoC?
Push to talk over cellular (PoC) is a wireless two-way cellular communication allowing instant and global mobile connectivity with the ability to communicate on a push of a key.
Push to talk over cellular; as the name suggests, is an emerging technology that combines the well-known ‘Push to talk’ capability commonly used in two way radios with 4G cellular coverage. Due to utilising 4G the devices have very wide coverage being able to communicate with any device that has 4G coverage.
PTT application providers, realizing that a hard switch from radio to PoC may be too uncertain for many organizations, are investing in software development or acquisitions to provide PTT apps that integrate PoC into two-way radio communication. This allows mobile phone users to communicate on specified radio channels and makes adoption easily scalable. It also makes group tests virtually risk free and allows companies to scale their adoption rate up to a suitable point in the organization, which could be a total replacement of twoway radio communication by POC.
