Josh Lober, President of ESChat, added, “We are excited to be working with Siyata, which is a fast-growing vendor of innovative PTT devices. ESChat delivers best-of-class PoC software, which coupled with Siyata’s UR7, provides enterprise customers a fantastic PTT experience.”
The integration opens opportunities for Siyata with ESChat’s multiple cellular operator partners and end customers.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO and Chairman of Siyata Mobile, commented, “We are pleased to be working with ESChat, a leading North American PoC software vendor and are confident this will open up large-scale sales opportunities for our UR7 device. Our rugged clamshell, coupled with ESChat Push-to-Talk, is a perfect upgrade for outdated IDEN clamshell devices.”
The UR7 device is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset supporting major North American bands including 4G/LTE and FirstNet (“Band 14”) for the First Responders network.
