PRESS RELEASE: Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 18, 2015 — Kodiak, a leading provider of broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solutions, announces today at IWCE software release 7.10 for its Broadband PTT solution. Feature-rich, release 7.10 delivers prioritized scanning and broadcast capabilities comparable to land mobile radio (LMR), a Web based Application Programming Interface (API) that extends PTT functionality to 3rd party applications, and FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliance.
A cornerstone of release 7.10 is a Web-API that makes it possible for 3rd party developers/integrators to add fast, easy push-to-talk voice communication to their applications. The Web-API allows Kodiak to extend Broadband PTT functionality into existing workforce management and productivity applications, increasing productivity by providing real-time voice communication, presence, and alert capabilities within existing workflows.
The addition of talkgroup scanning with priority and broadcast calling to release 7.10 provides Broadband PTT users with a communications experience as easy and efficient as traditional land mobile radio (LMR) devices. Talkgroup scanning with priority allows users to create and scan a list of up to 16 talkgroups, and broadcast calling enables one-way communication to up to 500 users at one time.
