Vancouver, BC, May 3, 2022 – Siyata Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: SYTA, SYTAW) (“Siyata” or the “Company”), a global vendor of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) devices and cellular signal booster systems, is pleased to announce that its SD7 ruggedized device is now certified and approved for use on FirstNet®. The SD7 is now FirstNet Ready®, which means first responders can use it to tap into specialized capabilities designed to meet their needs on FirstNet®.
FirstNet®, Built with AT&T is solving long-standing communications challenges faced by public safety entities and those supporting emergency response nationwide. This allows first responders to communicate with one another easily and quickly during everyday situations, big events or emergencies. And FirstNet® is evolving based on the needs of and feedback from the public safety community, driving purposeful innovation to help them stay mission ready. Now, by adding SD7 to the FirstNet® ecosystem, first responders have more access to the critical information they need – every day and in every emergency.
“FirstNet® has been an early collaborator with Siyata, supporting our mission to be the global leader in the rapidly growing Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) industry. Their continued support is a testament to the high-quality products we develop and the clear benefits they provide to first responders,” commented Siyata CEO Marc Seelenfreund. “The SD7 is a next generation cellular technology aimed to disrupt the legacy $12.6 billion LMR industry (Source: ResearchandMarkets.com) and getting certified and approved for use on FirstNet® puts us firmly on the path to do just that.”
The SD7 has been designed from the ground up for primary first responders as well as the extended public safety community. SD7 users can initiate and receive talk-group push-to-talk calls, receive private push-to-talk calls, notify others of emergencies, and report locations, all actions ideally tailored for mission critical purposes.
In addition, Siyata is also launching the VK7 (Vehicle Kit 7), a first-of-its-kind, patent-pending car kit with an integrated 20-watt speaker, a simple slide-in connection sleeve for the SD7, and an external antenna connection for stronger cellular signal for optimal in-vehicle experience for the user that is similar to a traditional LMR mobile device. The VK7 has been uniquely designed to be used with the SD7 and connects directly to the vehicle’s power. It can also connect to a Uniden cellular amplifier for better cellular connectivity and can be equipped with an external remote speaker microphone (RSM) to ensure compliance with hands-free communication legislation.
“FirstNet® devices and modules go through extensive review, so first responders can be confident that Siyata’s SD7 meets our highest standards for reliability, security and performance,” said Scott Agnew, assistant vice president, product marketing, FirstNet® Program at AT&T. “The more tools public safety has access to on their network, the more we can help them achieve their mission.”
Before being certified and approved for use on FirstNet®, devices are subject to hundreds of tests that cover a number of aspects, from security and durability to network impacts. This helps make sure that they can meet the needs of first responders. FirstNet Ready® devices are listed on the FirstNet device page.
The SD7 looks and functions like a land mobile radio, but it has the internals of a 4G/LTE smartphone which provides an easy connection to unified public cellular 4G/LTE networks with a data-only rate plan. This single purpose device is an easy-to-use voice communication tool for mission critical applications. It supports a limited interface (i.e. small 2-line monochrome screen, PTT key, SOS key, volume rockers) that is LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled.
“The SD7 is exactly the device we have been waiting for to replace our radios and we are very excited to roll them out this month,” said Neil Rojas, Security Director at Fantasy Island Amusement Park in Beach Haven, New Jersey.
