SouthernLINC Wireless Announces the Availability of MOTOTALKT, a New Push-To-Talk Application

SouthernLINC Wireless announced the availability of MOTOTALK(TM), a new Push-To-Talk application that connects any domestic wireless carrier's smartphone to the SouthernLINC Wireless network. MOTOTALK enables users to send and receive Push-To-Talk (PTT) calls from SouthernLINC Wireless phones wherever a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi data network is available. Now, people using an iPhone or Android smartphone from another U.S. carrier can download and use MOTOTALK to communicate via PTT with a SouthernLINC Wireless phone. The MOTOTALK app from SouthernLINC Wireless offers users unlimited PTT calling not just to individuals, but to groups as well. Whether trying to communicate with a friend, family member, co-worker or a fleet of workers, MOTOTALK gives to user instant communication at the push of a button using a smartphone's high- speed data service. Other features include a PTT call alert tone, cross-fleet calling functionality, and the ability to import PTT contacts from a phone's directory. The app provides PTT functionality wherever a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi data network is available across the U.S. MOTOTALK can be used with any iPhone or iPad with an iOS 7 or later operating system and with any Android operating system device with version 2.3 or later. The device must have at least 8 MB of available storage. The MOTOTALK app requires 3G/4G or high-speed Wi-Fi network access to work properly. SouthernLINC charges a monthly fee for each line of MOTOTALK service. More details on the service and requirements are available at southernlinc.com/MOTOTALK.

SouthernLINC Wireless Service Contract with State of Alabama Renewed through October 2015

SouthernLINC Wireless announced the renewal of the statewide contract for portable 800 megahertz communication devices with Push To Talk two-way radio (PTT) service with the Alabama Department of Finance's Division of Purchasing. SouthernLINC Wireless has held this contract since 1997. SouthernLINC Wireless is the exclusive multi-state provider of iDEN Push To Talk (PTT) and cellular services in the Southeast. SouthernLINC's highly reliable network is constructed with built-in redundancies, power back-ups, and security features designed to deliver consistent communications especially during severe weather conditions. Network reliability has been proven during and after major weather events including hurricanes Erin, Opal, Ivan, Katrina, the 2011 Tuscaloosa tornadoes, and 2014 Winter Storms Leon and Pax. SouthernLINC Wireless uses Motorola's Integrated Digital Enhanced Network (iDEN) technology to provide the State of Alabama with PTT two-way radio communications. Alabama government users can connect with local municipalities, schools and utilities that use SouthernLINC Wireless PTT service as well. This is a significant advantage in emergencies when critical communications to facilitate recovery efforts need to cross over organizational boundaries.

SouthernLINC Wireless Renews Contract with Georgia Technology Authority for Push to Talk Services Through 2017

SouthernLINC Wireless announced that their contract with the Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) for Push To Talk services has been renewed through 2017. SouthernLINC Wireless is the exclusive provider of multi-state iDEN Push To Talk (PTT) and cellular services in the Southeast. iDEN Push To Talk technology is the original wireless 2-way radio technology that other carriers and applications attempt to duplicate.
