Vodafone introduces PTT, lone worker services

Friday 4 March 2016 | 09:06 CET | News
Vodafone Netherlands is introducing Push To Talk and Lone Worker Protect, two services aimed at improving communication and safety in risky work situations. The cloud service Push To Talk, developed with Ericsson and Kodiak, is linked to Vodafone's 3G or 4G network and offers all the benefits of a mobile phone and walkie-talkie in one. Users don't have to enter a phone number or wait for connection and the address book shows which contacts are available. Direct group calls are also possible. LoneWorker Protect is designed for workers on their own in potentially dangerous work environments.
