SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 14, 2016 /CNW/ -- Sonim Technologies, maker of the world's toughest mobile phones and Novatek, full-service mobility systems integrator have partnered to bring secure push-to-talk (PTT) over LTE to industrial enterprises across Canada.
Nova Talk PTT from Novatek provides for AES-256 encrypted PTT voice and multimedia (text and image) messaging as well as live GPS location and historical (bread crumb) tracking and mapping. The Nova Talk system also allows for one-to-one private PTT calls, one-to-many PTT calls as well as Group Calls.
Over the last year Sonim has launched a wide range of LTE ultra-rugged mobile phones across Canada. These devices meet Sonim's Rugged Performance Standards (RPS), which include Sonim's comprehensive three-year warranty that includes coverage for accidental damage. The XP5 feature phone and the XP7 Android smartphone provide a feature rich PTT experience including a dedicated PTT button, extra-loud audio and the longest lasting batteries available in commercial mobile phones.
Novatek's CEO Victor Darias commented, "Our customers demand a robust solution with a high level of support. At Novatek we pride ourselves in being able to deliver a full Carrier Grade secure turnkey PTT solution. Partnering with a market leader like Sonim provides our enterprise and government customers the complete solution to meet their business needs."
Nova Talk is available to Canadian customers on the full family of Sonim LTE devices. "Sonim has a long history in the push-to-talk space and we have dedicated ourselves to serving PTT customers with devices that exceed their expectations," said Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim. "But the device is just half of the equation. Having solutions like Nova Talk run so well on our devices provide customers the complete solution that they require."

At PipeFlo Contracting Corp we use Nova Talk to contact our crews onsite through the push-to-talk and text messaging features. The ability to group text and call has helped in organizing our crews. Sending photos through text messages allows us to quickly exchange information back and forth to provide details of what is happening in the field in real-time. PC dispatch software allows us to quickly change contact information for each phone ourselves, no IT involvement required. This is a big asset as we are changing out who is assigned to each phone quite often. In addition, the support team at Novatek has been wonderful, getting us up and running right away and addressing all of our questions very quickly.
Our employees are using the Sonim XP7 onsite. Thanks to the high-quality design, we have not had a single issue. The combination of the XP7 and Nova Talk is very easy to use. This solution has made our operations more efficient and our team more productive.

Our forklift operators, warehouse personnel, dispatchers and mechanics are using Nova Talk and Sonim's XP7. The solution works great and is simple to use. Using the built-in mapping features, we have a simple visual of where all of our team is in real-time. This is tremendously valuable, especially when trying to track our mobile mechanics. The Sonim rugged handsets have been great, extremely durable and an all-around excellent device.
