What is Push to Talk?
PTT or Push to Talk is a two-way radio communication service that doesn’t need to form
a network connection for data transmission. With both software and hardware solutions, PTT can be
implemented over cellular data, Wi-Fi, or even a private LTE network . It eliminates
any security breach in communication and serves with instant connectivity at the press of a
Previously, the idea of PTT was restricted to walkie-talkies only. Today there is PTT mobile application
that is implementable over any operating system, be it Android or iOS. Even web-apps are available. This
seamless mode of communication forms connections across countries. It has been saving both time and
money for any business.
Why use Push to Talk?
Why use push to talk?-is a common question among the greater mass. Moreover, nowadays people are very
accustomed to using modern social media tools. These platforms have become the key source of
communication for even big enterprises. So why choose push to-talk technology over the
There is quite a simple reason behind this. With the increase in usage of different platforms, the rate
of a data breach has also increased. The main cause behind this is that the enterprises are giving the
authority of their data to a third-party. In that case, an easy one-touch communication, PTT can be a
With PTT, one can have full access to their data and can use their server as the storage facility. It
enables them to record all the messages and so there remains no chance of missing out on any
information. As no time is wasted to establish a connection over the network, it multiplies in the
overall efficiency of the workplace.
How does Push to Talk Work?
Push to talk communication
uses a half-duplex mode where at a time, only one person can speak. The receiver upon receiving the
message will send a reply, and during that time the sender cannot send any further messages. This helps
to form a clear transmission of data over the network line. Recent PTT services use VoIP (Voice over
Internet Protocol). It has made the service faster as here messages are transmitted in the form of
packets over the internet.
With the installation of the PTT application in any smart device, the user can enjoy walkie-talkie-like
functionality. All the information is stored in the cloud. Furthermore, the system can be installed
under an enterprise’s private server. It makes the service affordable for any business. Again, modern
features like- image and video sharing, real-time location tracking, etc. have made PTT even more
fascinating in recent times.

Benefits of Push-to-Talk
The SPTT Application has the potentiality to bring proper regulation in salesforce management, public safety, commercial usage, or any mission-critical communication. To discuss the benefits of the app, the following categories should be highlighted.
With the SPTT app, no time is wasted to form the network connection. Only a single press on a button can ensure instant connection among users residing in different countries.
The modern app built by NybSys is not device-dependent. Rather it is compatible with both Android and iOS. It is possible to access the app on the web as well.
With traditional walkie-talkie devices, only a few people within the range were able to communicate. But the new push to talk technology has enabled to connect multiple users. People can conduct individual to group conversations and all these can be managed by the built-in infrastructure.
There remains no range dependency to create any hindrance in communication with PTT. Devices under different networks can easily communicate whenever the users are available.
One of the major advantages of using PTT for any enterprise is that it can maximize work efficiency by maintaining secured communication. No external interference can be created by outsiders. The enterprises can have full authority over their data and can manage the number of connected devices under their server.
Real-time location sharing helps to track any sales personnel in action. It can also help to analyze the response time for any mission-critical communication.
The SPTT solution is a cost-efficient method of communication for any enterprise. Enterprises with already existing personal servers can install the system at a minimum cost.
NybSys’s Push to Talk solution can help save time by establishing better team communication. It is high time that enterprises started owning their own communication platform. This one-touch mode of conversation serves with end-to-end encryption, making it the ideal medium of contact within the team.
