ToooAir launches cellular ‘two-way’ offering

Push-to-talk communication occurs over Telstra network


Sydney-based communications firm ToooAir says it is supplying one of the first push-to-talk over cellular (PTToC) product range to the Australian market.

The transport industry has a long history of two-way radio communications, so the concept is familiar even if the mode is a tweak towards digital.

ToooAir claims  the technology is an advance over private mobile radio (PMR) and land mobile radio (LMR). 

Using the Telstra network, The Australian company is pledging: nation-wide push-to-talk communications; GPS tracking; dispatching software; instant voice and text messages; and coverage within structures.

Other features include: private calls, voice recording, GPS tracking, group calls, instant voice and text messaging, unlimited coverage, in-building reception, stun function, and an exclusive ToooAir dispatching software, allowing quick and easy visibility of all users across a fleet.

“Unlike traditional LMR/PMR radio networks, ToooAir’s PTToC product provides Australia-wide communication through a simple one-to-one or one-to-many two-way radio style system, but utilising the cellular mobile phone network,” the company says.

“Due to this use of cellular multi-site technology, operational teams across Australia can communicate at the touch of a button, also providing superior in-building, tunnel and basement coverage.”

The three-product range comprises of a compact unit, mobile mounted unit and handheld device, offering two-way, voice over internet protocol (VOIP) communications.

Australia’s workforce is becoming more geographically diverse and this causes issues for dated communications systems which rely on the close proximity of users,” ToooAir GM Peter Langbart says.

“ToooAir’s Push-to-Talk over Cellular technology solves this issue and has added capabilities such as dispatch software and GPS tracking that aren’t provided through other products.”

It has three separate products now available to the Australian market:

  • TA-308, a compact unit weighing only 225 grams with an LCD display indicating calling party, group, signal strength and GPS acquisition. The product also has two quick call buttons for individual and group calls.
  • TA-300, a mountable mobile device with a reversible LCD display, auto power-on sensing and internal antennas “powering strong reception in difficult areas”
  • TA-388, a handheld device with more than two days of battery life, programmable function keys, colour display and easy menu functionality. The product also offers SOS emergency calling and USB charging.
