Regardless of our situations or environment, we all need to enjoy a consistent communication experience. However, it can only be made possible by the availability of an intelligent device and a handset. Sonim Technologies (NASDAQ: SONM) has owned up to this possibility by announcing an XP8 ultra-rugged Android handset. The gadget, which offers innovative communication, is an ultra-reliable and ultra-rugged smartphone and has approval for FirstNet® Push-to-Talk (PTT).
Given that FirstNet PTT is built with AT&T, its design enables public safety while using smartphones from Sonia Technologies. To mention, Sonim’s ultra-rugged LTE handsets are purpose-built and with a high-performance calling, which enhances critical communications.
Besides, John Graff, Sonim CMO, adds, “The ability to run the FirstNet PTT solution on the Sonim XP8, gives customers choice and flexibility in implementing a mission-critical communications system.”
What Features Enhance the PTT Experience?
From security and durability to network impacts, FirstNet PTT solution meets most customers’ needs. Thanks to some of the following features;
- A broad range of Ultra-rugged accessories, including wireless mics and remote speaker microphones, addresses the collective needs of first responders.
- Noise suppression capabilities to enhance clear communication in the noisiest conditions.
- Red (Emergency) Button for emergency services and with the ability for customization using the free Sonim SOS application. The application also features FirstNet Certification.
- OneTouch PTT – a dedicated PTT button. This one provides prompt communications. Hence there zero need to launch an app like consumer smartphones.
However, it is worth noting that FirstNet Ready devices are subject to several tests to ensure they meet the suitable parameters. It is also a demonstration of the company’s commitment to delivering safety-critical mobile solutions.
In other news, just recently, Sonim Technologies agreed with Men-Star Rugged. The partnership will fast-track the distribution of Sonim’s ultra-rugged XP8 smartphone in the United Kingdom. This will serve local authorities and public sector enterprises while providing more ultra-rugged options in the industry.
