June 10, 2013 - News

AT&T, in launching Enhanced Push-to-Talk for its business customers, says this is the first time a U.S. carrier has offered push-to-talk capabilities on the iPhone. The new app is available for the iPhone 5 and 4S.

In addition, the Dallas-based carrier said, AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk can now be used over Wi-Fi, giving customers improved in-building coverage and access to the service via compatible Wi-Fi networks.

"Across industries such as manufacturing, engineering, hospitality, construction and government, organizations need instant communications in challenging environments," said Mike Troiano, VP, advanced mobility solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. "From the start, AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk was designed specifically for AT&T's speedy 4G LTE networks, and now we are offering even more devices so our business customers can communicate faster and to larger talk groups."

Key features of AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk for iPhone include: larger contact lists and talk groups than competitive push-to-talk solutions; the ability to combine push-to-talk services and mobile applications, with help available from AT&T's team of mobility consulting and integration experts; supervisory override that allows supervisors to communicate important time sensitive messages to their team; and call setup in less than one second.
