AINA Wireless PTT Smart Button - Communication Made Safe and Simple

Posted on 2018-07-02 by Daniel Hackl

AINA Wireless launches a PTT remote control that complements your PTT application on Android and iOS

PTT buttons are known accessories for PTT applications in an PTT over LTE ecosystem. They provide an easy way to trigger a PTT command even for consumer grade phones that do not provide a dedicated PTT button on the side of the phone. But even for PTT phones, a separate PTT button allows the user to keep the phone tucked away, on a belt or a holster and make PTT functionality more available.

How to Avoid Dubious Accessory Vendors

Posted on 2018-03-07 by Daniel Hackl

The mobile phone market is dominated by mostly reputable companies and even lower cost devices from Huawei are strictly controlled, providing a good level of quality, reliability, and customer support. The rugged device market has to fight with some counterfeit cases and very low cost devices that do not fulfill what they promise but these devices have hardly gained foothold in developed markets. The PTT accessory market on the other hand has a much bigger problem with counterfeit cases. Some end users are complaining about failure rates of 40 percent and higher, bad customer service, and high return shipping costs to mostly East Asia. To avoid this, companies have to put the same amount of focus on sourcing adequate PTT accessories as they do for mobile phones and PTT applications. Here are a few precautions companies can take to avoid significant amounts of communication downtime and administrative work to get devices exchanged.

How Some Bluetooth PTT Accessories Can Pose a Security Risk to Your Organization

Posted on 2018-03-02 by Daniel Hackl

A Crash Course in Bluetooth Security

Since wired devices are connected directly to the mobile device, it is hard to tamper with them unless someone gets very close to the user. Bluetooth devices use waves which can be picked up by anyone. It is important to ensure that anything being communicated through the Bluetooth device (not only voices but commands through button presses) are using secured channels that cannot be intercepted.

Functions and Features of PTT Accessories You Should Know About

Posted on 2018-02-28 by Daniel Hackl

Here is a brief overview of the different features and functions that PTT accessories can provide. When it comes to extending the capabilities of a mobile device or a PTT app, there are not many possibilities to do so with wired accessories regardless of having a light headset or remote speaker microphone (RSM). The reason is the analog connection via the 3.5mm audio connector, which doesn’t allow for more than audio and the PTT signal. Bluetooth accessories provide a digital connection which can theoretically send an almost infinite number of commands to the phone or app matching the feature set provided within the PTT ecosystem.
