Description

The Iridium Push-to-Talk (PTT) service allows you to initiate fast, secure and global communications to your entire team.

Unlike traditional PTT solutions that require land based infrastructure (GSM or Radio connectivity), the Iridium PTT service uses the Iridium
satellite network and utilises its truly global coverage footprint, allowing users to communicate with each other with the click of a button,
no matter where their job takes them.

The Iridium PTT service is simple to set up and allows you to make adjustments as your needs change. Using the Iridium PTT Command
Centre, you can define coverage areas and user talk-groups quickly and easily. As situations evolve, you are able to make changes on the run
that are carried out within seconds – it’s the ultimate in adaptability and responsiveness.

Plus, with fixed, semi-fixed, and fully portable solutions available, you can be sure that there is a PTT solution that works for your entire team.

 

How does it work?

The Iridium Push-to-Talk (PTT) service operates using the Iridium satellite network.
The Iridium satellite network provides 100% truly global coverage, meaning the
service will work anywhere on earth.

When signing up to the Iridium Push-to-Talk service, you are provided with a range
of options to determine how large you need your PTT footprint to be, this footprint
will determine where your handsets will operate. The smallest talk-group area is
100,000km2 and the largest is 2,250,000 km2, the talk-group does not have to be
in one location. You can separate the talk-groups into as many areas as you need.
For example, using the small talk-group you could create four 25,000km2 talk
areas. This means you could have three mine sites and one head office all operating
using the same talk-group with unlimited satellite talk time.
