IoT/PoC Radio is Poised for Success in the US Broadband PTT Market

Josh Lober  (President/CEO, ESChat)

Location: N260

Date: Monday, March 21

Time: 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm

Track: AI, IoT & Smart-X

Format: Power Session

Vault Recording: TBD

Application specific LTE ‘radios’ designed for broadband Push-to-Talk (PTT) have found success in some international markets over the past few years. Also referred to as IoT or POC radios, these devices can operate using a low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) data plan. Until recently, none of the IoT/POC radio manufacturers had successfully navigated the stringent US carrier requirements for certification. In January 2022, the Siyata SD7 was certified for operation on the AT&T and Verizon networks, and also received FirstNet Ready certification. Carrier certification is expected in the coming months from T-Mobile. The availability of US carrier certified IoT/POC devices that are paired with broadband PTToC applications represents a material change that will shape broadband PTT offerings in the coming years.
In this session, you will:
- Understand the features and benefits of IoT Radio
- Explore the economics of IoT Radio
- Learn about IoT Radio interoperability, including: LMR (RoIP, ISSI, AIS), Dispatch Consoles and Logging Recorders.
