Traditional Two-Way Radio vs Push To Talk Over Cellular (PTToC)


The two main options for your core communications are traditional two-way radio or newer 4G cellular radios, often referred to as either PTToC, PoC, LTE or push to talk. The main difference is that radio uses a closed network using repeaters to provide coverage, whilst PTToC uses devices with a SIM card that uses your mobile network or a local WiFi network to provide connectivity. Both have their pros and cons. Below we discuss some of the key considerations when deciding which tech is best for you:

Coverage

 

Two-way radio can work point to point with themselves or for wider area networks will need their own repeater infrastruture. With PTToC the reach could be national and even international, but only if there is network or WiFi coverage.

Single Failure Point

 

Radio repeaters can fail, which then means the whole system is down. Possible failures on PTToC could be mobile coverage or problems with the WiFi network, but you are generally less likely to have a single point of failure.

Major Incidents

 

Radio networks generally stay working, mobile networks can get saturated or shut down by the emergency services, however if you have a WiFi signal this will act as a backup.

Apps

 

PTToC devices do come with the ability to use most Apps your workforce may need to access. This can still be done on a higher tech radio system, but the functionality works particulalrly well with PTToC.

Should I Upgrade?
