Kodiak Broadband Push-to-Talk

Link Two-Way Radio with Cellular PTT

Bridge together two-way land mobile radio systems and Kodiak-powered Push-to-Talk to extend an existing LMR system for seamless communications.

Expand 2-Way Radio (LMR)

Today’s users of two-way Land Mobile Radio systems (LMR) are faced with a number of limitations in terms of their radio coverage, data capabilities, and device cost and selection. The Kodiak Broadband PTT solution offers PTT over cellular with LMR interoperability, so users can leverage mobile broadband data capabilities over nationwide 4G LTE, 3G, and Wi-Fi networks — without having to carry two separate devices.

Interoperate two-way LMR systems with Kodiak Broadband Push-to-Talk

Kodiak Broadband PTT provides comparable LMR functionality with numerous new features and is much less expensive than an LMR system. Kodiak Broadband PTT is also interoperable with a number of two-way radio technologies including Analog, DMR, P25, NXDN, and TETRA. With Kodiak Broadband PTT, LMR users can dramatically expand the reach and capabilities of an LMR network, with the option of moving all at once or transitioning over time, with substantial benefits that include a much lower total cost of ownership.

LMR Commercial Interoperability

With the pace and demands of today’s business environment, companies need to be able to empower employees with the right communications tools to do their jobs. Most existing two-way radio users are not fully satisfied with LMR coverage or are using older equipment that is approaching end of life. For businesses needing to respond to market dynamics by adding additional workers or new offices in different geographic locations, LMR costs are much higher than cellular PTT, and many users are required to carry two devices to meet their communication needs.

Plug it in, and it Works

Kodiak Broadband PTT extends an existing LMR system via a JPS ACU series interoperability gateway. By connecting a donor two-way radio and a donor Kodiak Broadband PTT device using the appropriate interoperability interface adapter cables to the gateway, the LMR and cellular PTT networks are linked together, bridging cellular PTT devices and LMR radios for seamless communications. Kodiak Broadband PTT with LMR interoperability offers access to nationwide cellular networks, eliminates geographic coverage limitations of LMR radios and allows users to upgrade to the latest technology and current devices.

PTT and LMR Talk Groups

Kodiak Broadband PTT offers LMR users a centralized and dynamic set-up of talk groups to make it easy to connect quickly and easily. Leveraging a Web-based Central Admin Tool, talk groups can be created or updated easily by an administrator, and then automatically synched to devices over the air and in real time, eliminating the need to program individual devices.
