Motorola Solutions’ WAVE PTX Platform

Two-way radios

Two-way radios have always been integral for many industries. However, they can play a larger part in your team communications as they become more sophisticated. The Motorola WAVE PTX Platform is a perfect example of how you can take your two-way radio communication to the next level by incorporating a suite of innovative communication solutions. It allows you to turn your smartphone into a communication device, offering all of the functionality of two-way radios without needing physical radios.

WAVE PTX is network independent multimedia communication subscription service that instantly connects your team at the push of a button. Using the WAVE PTX app, you can incorporate push-to-talk  (PTT) communications into every smartphone and allow team members to share multimedia with only the touch of a button. Essentially, WAVE PTX gives you the same functionality and ease for work-based communication while only requiring the installation of an app.

Some of the key benefits of the WAVE PTX platform include:

  • The easy-to-use app interface is available for all Android and iOS phones and tablets.
  • Two client modes to tailor communication – PTT Radio emulates the experience of a traditional two-way radio, and Standard Mode, which offers full client functionality.
  • The push-to-talk features support both group and private calls, ensuring that your team members can communicate to whomever they need to with the push of a button.
  • The ability to instantly communicate by sharing text, photos, video, or file attachments.
  • A broadband push-to-talk service that can connect to your existing professional radio system, allowing your team to communicate with other members over a wide service area.
  • Simple and easy-to-use controls in the app interface make communication instant and managing calls easy.
  • No usage-based call charges, meaning you have a fixed cost, which is easier to manage during budgeting.
  • Bring your own device functionality, allowing team members to use their preferred devices and cost savings in many settings.
  • A real-time presence with ‘Do Not Disturb’ functionality.
  • Multiple communication options, including PTT, voice messaging, text messaging, file sharing, and background calling.
  • Location, mapping, tracking, and geofencing functionality.

This Wave platform also supports the Motorola TLK100 portable and TLK150 mobile radios. While this robust platform offers many benefits just by using the app, additional benefits can be achieved when WAVE PTX combines optional features, other Motorola devices, or communications infrastructure. Your business could also benefit from integrating WAVE PTX with these additional features:

  • WAVE PTX Safeguard: WAVE PTX Safeguard allows you to access additional advanced emergency options to support mission-critical communication.Key features include:

    • Ambient and Discreet Listening features allow you to monitor the safety status of team members.
    • Users may easily enable or disable this option to be available when needed and restricted when it is not required.

  • WAVE PTX Streaming Video: Continuous streaming video allows you to stream live videos to other users or groups of users. This streaming function is also available during a simultaneous call, and users can initiate or receive calls without interrupting the video stream. WAVE PTX Streaming Video can increase the clarity of communication and improve situational awareness. These benefits result in faster, more accurate communication.
  • WAVE PTX Integration with Wireless Service Combined with TLK Series Wave PTX Radios: The WAVE PTX platform allows you to combine the broad coverage of a 3G/4G network with the ease of two-way radio communications. WAVE PTX radios automatically switch to the strongest network available to provide reliable communication, even when roaming across a wide geographical area. The WAVE PTX radios have all of the same benefits as the WAVE PTX platform and additionally come with Over-the-Air device management, a robust and durable design, Wi-Fi connectivity, and multi-network compatibility with optimized cellular to Wi-Fi handovers.
  • WAVE PTX Dispatch: The WAVE PTX Dispatch function allows you to dispatch from anywhere with an internet connection and a standard web browser. This feature makes it easy to respond to incidents, events, and customers that may need immediate attention.
