What is PoC?

Two-way radios have always been a great form of reliable instant communication, but the world of communication is always evolving, which is why we now have PoC.

What is PoC?

PoC stands for push to talk over cellular, and means exactly that. PoC is an application that can be installed onto mobile devices, allowing them to send messages at the touch of a button, just like two-way radios.

There’s no denying how popular mobile phones are, and they’ve made massive strives in development over the years. However, in terms of fast communication, they take considerably longer than two-way Radios. PoC software combines the two so you don’t have to flip between using your phone and radio.

Of course, many businesses are weary about making the switch from two-way radios to relying solely on mobile phones. However, this isn’t as daunting a step as many may believe.

In today’s society, most people own a smartphone and are familiar on how to use them. To add PoC to your phone, all you need to do is download the app and you’ll be instructed on how to use it. The software requires an internet connection to work, which can be done either over your own phone 4G network, or your own WIFI network.

Also, if you’re considering upgrading your outdated radios, it could be worth giving PoC a try. Rather than spending huge amounts on all new radios, you can simply pay for subscription to a push-to-talk over cellular app; which is definitely going to be the most cost-effective solution.
