Kodiak, a leading provider of broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solutions, today announced that HOT Mobile Ltd., a leading Israeli wireless service provider, has launched MIRS 4G PTT, a next-generation broadband push-to-talk (PTT) service based on the Kodiak carrier-integrated, standards-based Broadband PTT solution. This new PTT service will enable an advanced level of communication for HOT Mobile customers in the industrial, construction, enterprise, transportation, security, energy, and government sectors.

“We are excited to offer our customers the latest push-to-talk technology with many new features that can be delivered over HOT Mobile 3G/4G/Wi-Fi networks for extended call coverage, while maintaining fast call set-up and high voice quality,” said HOT Mobile CEO Asaf Ofer. “The Kodiak Broadband PTT solution will provide our PTT customers with a new level of communications performance - secure, efficient, and easy to use, increasing their business efficiency and productivity.”

HOT Mobile selected the Kodiak Broadband PTT solution to implement the next generation of iDEN network because it provides carrier-grade scalability, resiliency, and security, as well as a rich set of features as demonstrated in deployments by leading mobile carriers across North America, Latin America and Europe. Key features include secure Push-to-Talk service for group and one-to-one communications, centralized real-time management of groups and contacts to the client devices, industry-leading voice quality, fast call setup, iDEN interoperability, and an integrated Dispatch console. A broad portfolio of the latest models of handsets and accessories support MIRS 4G PTT, from smartphones, which enable a single device for all mobile applications, to rugged and intrinsically safe phones required for specific industries.

Important upcoming features include secure Push-to-X (group and one-to-one encrypted instant messaging with text, picture, file, video, and recorded voice) and location-based features (locating other PTT contacts on a map and geo-fencing). These powerful features improve work outcomes especially in construction, utilities, field service, and transportation, when there is a need to share pictures or group messages with office staff or field colleagues, to help with troubleshooting, or to show completion of work. The ability of a supervisor or group leader to view the location of their group members on a mobile device and receive notifications when group members leave a geo-fenced area provides for greater visibility and employee safety.

“We are proud to have been selected by HOT Mobile for its next-generation broadband PTT service,” said John Vice, CEO, Kodiak. “Kodiak has the largest carrier-integrated PTT network footprint in the world. It provides an ecosystem of devices, accessories and third-party productivity applications on a future-proof PTT platform, and our solutions are backed by the expertise and experience that carriers like HOT Mobile demand.”
