Born on 9/11, with our roots in Cisco

The need for converged, interoperable voice

The events of 9/11 exposed a glaring inability of first responders to communicate across organizational and technical boundaries: push-to-talk (PTT) devices and radio networks were isolated from each other, unable to connect to other devices and networks.

So the engineers at Cisco asked the question: What if all devices could share a common environment that allowed individuals to use virtually any device they wanted, anywhere, to communicate?

Soon after, software was devised to connect audio streams from various networks over IP. The journey towards unified communications had begun.

The platform that makes it all happen today is called Instant Connect. Now, everything and everyone who need to be, can stay connected.

Automated push-to-talk

A new breed of voice

Conventional push-to-talk simply can't keep pace with today's rapidly-evolving communications breakthroughs – innovations that include auto-discovery of voice assets, automatic assembly and disassembly of talk channels, automated workflows triggered by IoT alerts, Smart Geofences™ and more.

Instant Connect – powered by the Dyna™ automation engine – represents a new breed of push-to-talk. Our software connects frontline teams across virtually any device, operating system, and network. So workers never get disconnected and instead, gain the improvements in performance they need to always stay one step ahead of trouble.
