Latin America based NII Holdings (which operates the Nextel brand) says that it has launched its next generation network in Mexico. The company said that its new network provides a differentiated Push to Talk (PTT) service and high speed data capabilities, incorporated into Android based smartphones.
The new high performance PTT services are integrated with the mobile broadband data services available on the network and deliver an instant PTT service. In this first phase of the deployment, the next generation offerings will be available in 34 cities in the country, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puebla and Cancun. A second phase expansion expected to cover all of the main cities in Mexico is scheduled to launch in 2013.
"The launch of our next generation network along with the new high performance PTT experience in Mexico is both an exciting and highly anticipated milestone for our employees and our customers," said Peter Foyo, president of Nextel Mexico. "Our customers have come to expect quality and cutting-edge services from us, and we are proud to provide these enhanced offerings, which will allow us to provide more options and benefits for our customers."
The new PTT service is powered by the QChat platform supplied by Qualcomm.
