In business sectors, where reliability and security of voice communications can be compromised, PoC is the ideal solution, as it focuses on voice communications and has multimedia applications, dispatching and positioning functions as helpful complements.

PoC technology has been rapidly developing in recent years. It not only meets end-users’ demands for traditional voice services but also facilitates image, text, video and other multimedia data services. The use of public networks enables PoC radio to achieve wide range, long-distance communication without additional networks or the use of repeaters. Hence, PoC radio can be used in a large variety of scenarios and saves additional investments for customers. As a result, 3G/4G-based PoC radios have become increasingly popular across the world.

In 2018, Hytera launched its first PoC radio, the PNC370, attracting wide attention in the industry. Next week at MWC Barcelona, Hytera will debut its PNC550, a smart PoC radio with a 5-inch touchscreen, combining both the features of 4G smartphones and PMR radio.

So far, Hytera PoC solutions have been successfully applied in multiple projects including the Shenzhen Nanshan Urban Management Bureau's Emergency Response Plan for Typhoon Mangkhut, the Nanshan Half Marathon Medical Team for communication support and firefighting communication projects in South Korea, and earned impressive recognition.

 

For many end users who need PTT functionality, PoC is the ideal solution as it focuses on voice communications and has multimedia applications, dispatching and positioning functions as helpful complements.
