Curated by: Gert Jan Wolf - Editor-in Chief for The Critical Communications Review

Siyata Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq: SYTA, SYTAW) (" Siyata " or the " Company "), a global developer and vendor of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) handsets and accessories, and Zello today announced that the Zello push-to-talk (PTT) application is now available on Siyata's SD7 push-to-talk handset.

Marc Seelenfreund , CEO of Siyata, commented,

"We are pleased to have the top-ranked Zello app integrated with our handsets and available for use globally. Zello is a highly popular PTT service, particularly within the first responder community, used by millions to enable reliable and clear communications. We anticipate this integration will further expand our addressable market and open new opportunities for increasing sales of our devices."

Alex Gavrilov , Founder and CEO of Zello, commented,

"We are pleased to work with Siyata to better support organizations that require robust, easy-to-use, and cost-efficient modern communication solutions, replacing legacy two-way radios. We anticipate that the rugged and versatile SD7 push-to-talk handset, paired with the highly reliable and scalable Zello platform, will be well received by customers in public safety, security, hospitality, and transportation markets."

Westchester County, NY has recently purchased several hundred Siyata SD7 handsets for use with Zello for operations throughout the county. Lieutenant Brian Hess of Westchester County Police said, "We are pleased that the Siyata SD7 is available with Zello PTT since this handset is what our county needs to keep in touch effectively to provide the level of service that the residents of the County require."

Public safety customer Evan Shegoski , from River Road Rescue Squad in New Jersey, commented;

"We are enthused to be able to deploy the feature rich Zello for Business solution on our SD7 devices. We have long been a proponent of this combined solution which pairs this leading PTT platform with offerings directly comparable to the same features we expect from a traditional LMR solution accessible through the only device on the market that not only acts like a traditional LMR radio, but is also receives regular product development, improvement, and support. This combined solution offers promise as a scalable solution across multiple geographic regions with a truly reasonable price point for deployment in terms of end user device, LMR integrations and PTT network. Siyata and Zello together breaks us free of the bloated costs and bureaucracy that routinely plagues LMR public safety solutions. We cannot wait to see what the future holds as this offering continues to be developed."
