Unlike PTT offerings from other US Carriers, T-Mobile’s Un-Carrier approach allows its Push-to-Talk service to communicate with compatible PTT users on other carriers without the need for hardware gateways or special software versions. T-Mobile PTT users can communicate from anywhere in the world, while using WiFi or while roaming.
T-Mobile’s PTT service supports Android and iOS smartphones, a limited selection of ‘basic’ phones, and Windows PCs. In addition, all other components of the ESChat ecosystem are also available to T-Mobile customers. These components include Land Mobile Radio (LMR) integration using RoIP, ISSI and AIS interfaces, mission critical call recording/logging using SIPREC or span-port interfaces, and CAD and Console interfaces using CSSI and AIS.
“We are very pleased to be T-Mobile’s technology partner as they enter the Push-to-Talk market,” said Judy King, Director of Sales, ESChat. “The combination of ESChat’s experience and widespread adoption throughout North America, along with T-Mobile’s Un-Carrier approach will create a carrier PTT offering that is unique in the US marketplace. T-Mobile has already experienced market success during their soft launch across numerous market verticals, and we look forward to continued growth with general availability”.
