You are in a team on the run and have to communicate remotely with your colleagues. Not enough time to zoom into a phone call and chit-chat. Get to the point as quickly as possible. That’s when PoC radio is used.
Based on Push-to-talk technology – a half-duplex communication style where only one person speaks and the other one(s) listen(s), they delivers direct voice messages to several receivers at one time.
In a regular phone call, one dials a number and waits for the other person to pick it up:
1) The receiver answers the phone, the caller first introduces themselves.
2) Asking politely if the other person has a moment to talk.
3) Moving over to the question they actually want to ask.
4) Receiving a satisfying answer.
5) Trying to find a polite way to end the conversation soon.
This can take more than a couple of minutes or five. AINA PTT has calculated that by doing simple things with regular phone calls, hundreds of minutes of productive time are wasted every day.
