Motorola Evolves Push-to-Talk over EVDO Rev A

Posted by Kallan Dahn Saturday, August 23, 2008

Motorola has undoubtedly been the king of push-to-tallk services in the world of cellular. Weilding their iDen Walkie-Talkie, and trademark "Chirp" like a virtual weapon of mass destruction throwing down all other services that dare compete with sheer speed. iDen technology is quickly becoming antiquated. Capable of very low network capacity, and even lower network speeds, Motorola went back to the drawing board to reinvent their success. Emerging from the lab with a new Push-To-Talk. The new service know as PoC or Push-to-Talk over Cellular. PoC promises low latency set up times, higher data rates, and better Quality of Service(QOS). PoC will leverage CDMA 1xRTT cellular networks that are equipped with Evolution Data Optimised (EVDO) "Revision A" technology. Motorola promises a wide range of Push-to-X Services. The technology will be available on a wide range of devices, from a wide range of manufacturers. The phones will be equipped with a Push-to-Talk Client. Motorola has a well known stance on working well with developers. I am looking forward to seeing what types of services will start to become available once developers get a hold on this new "toy". Ladies and gentlemen, walkie talkie is not just for business anymore.
