With Push to Talk over cellular, businesses and social groups can keep in touch at the push of a button simply by using a GPRS compatible mobile phone equipped with a Push to Talk 'hotkey'. "Push to Talk is an innovative service for group communication that allows for cost-effective and virtually instantaneous exchanges with groups of people," said Faisal Al Ayyar, Chairman, Wataniya Telecom. "The company continues to provide leading edge, cost-effective technologies and services that enhance the way our customers communicate."

Based on Motorola technology, PoC has achieved tremendous success with operators and customers around the world. PoC allows groups of up to 25 people to communicate simultaneously, which means that customers can now act and react in real time, both increasing efficiency of business communication as well as facilitating communications between social groups. Customers who will derive the greatest benefit from PoC are businessmen, security firms, transportation companies, construction, radio-taxi dispatchers and other industry segments, as well as families and groups of friends that want to keep in contact with individuals or groups.
