USA based AT&T says that it is to start trials of a push to talk service on its network, powered by Kodiak Networks.
In addition, AT&T is working to integrate traditional private mobile radio (PMR) systems with this enhanced PTT service trial.

"AT&T - with its fast LTE network, rugged device portfolio, business know-how and open approach to application development - is well-positioned to develop enhanced PTT services," said Andrew Seybold, CEO & Principal Consultant, Andrew Seybold, Inc., a consultancy focused on cellular and private mobile radio industries.
"Our customers are looking for a holistic PTT service - one that supports instant calls, numerous devices, dispatch applications and Application Programming Interfaces for developers," said Chris Hill, Vice President, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions.
