Telef nica is planning to roll out a push to talk service in its Latin American markets after signing a supply agreement with Conectel Kodiak. Conectel will use Kodiak Networks' solution, and will add their experience in marketing Telecommunications services throughout the region.
This solution works as a "walkie talkie" enabling instant calling to both individuals and predefined groups. With the addition of this service to its regional offer, Telefónica will be the largest provider of "push and talk" services in Latin America.
The new service, now available in Ecuador and Peru, will be implemented today in Mexico and progressively during the coming months in the other Latin America countries where Telefónica is present.
Luis Miguel Gilpérez, Head of Mobile Business Telefónica Latin America, said, "We continue to see growth in all our businesses and believe that Movistar Movitalk will extend our leadership in the mobile market, given the growing popularity of community-oriented applications in the region. Our customers require more choices and advanced functionalities to satisfy their communications needs and this service meets these demands."
