Partner group selects the Mobile Tornado PTT solutions

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mobile Tornado, a leading provider of carrier grade professional end-to-end Push-to-Talk solutions over any IP network, and Partner Group, the leading cellular Company in Israel, announces it has recently signed an agreement under which Mobile Tornado will provide its advanced Push-To-Talk over Cellular (PoC) solutions to Partner customers in Israel.

Mobile Tornado’s carrier-grade PoC platform enables individual users as well as large user groups to use push-to-talk (PTT), push-to-locate (PTL), push-to-alert (PTA) and push-to-message (PTM) services seamlessly. These are critical functions that enterprises, security and public safety organizations depend on every day.

As an integrated part of the solution, Mobile Tornado offers a Dispatch console that enables call center operators to track users in real time on a map, chat with large conference groups of hundreds of users, chat with individual users, send text messages, record calls and take action in cases of emergency after receiving a distress signal from a PTT user.

The service will be implemented through the Partner PTT application, which is adapted for smart devices and for a wide range of rugged devices with dedicated PTT and emergency buttons.

Yakov Truzman, VP Business Division at Partner Group commented ;

“The PTT solution developed by Mobile Tornado enables Partner Group to provide our business customers with the most advanced and reliable product, suitable for use on Partner’s 4G and 4.5G networks with the widest deployment in Israel. This is a combination that is a significant advantage for security and public safety customers, and organizations that use Push to Talk devices on a large scale”.

Avi Tooba, Chief Executive at Mobile Tornado commented ;

“We are proud that Partner Group has chosen our PTT solution for their business customers. PTT over Cellular (POC) offerings are replacing land mobile radio (LMR) systems in many commercial environments, as non-mission-critical customers are increasingly opting for the lower cost and increased functionality associated with PoC. We continue to invest heavily in our advanced PTT platform and signing up another Tier 1 MNO further validates the quality of our offering.”
