Push-to-talk over cellular (PoC) is a telecommunication solution that offers two-way communication using wireless devices. It enables the consumers and subscribers to use their phones as walkie-talkies with an unlimited network range. It includes one-to-many and one-to-one voice communication services for smartphones over a cellular network. PoC also offers advanced functionalities, such as global positioning system (GPS), information protocol (IP)-based interoperability, auto-pairing, mobile workforce management, group messaging and fleet management. It supports digital mobile radios (DMR), emergency notifications and long-distance and instant communications. As a result, it is widely used for applications that require wide geographical coverage, such as public safety and security, manufacturing, construction, travel, hospitality, transportation and logistics.

Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Market Trends:
Significant growth in the telecommunication industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread adoption of the 5G network for push-to-talk (PTT)-related operations, especially in the developing economies, is providing a thrust to the growth of the market. In line with this, the shifting consumer preference from analog land mobile radio (LMR) systems to digital long-term evolution (LTE) networks for mobile communications is also contributing to the market growth. Small, medium and large-scale organizations are using large bandwidth architecture for live-location tracking and secure group multimedia messaging. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of cloud-based PoC solutions and the integration of connected devices with the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These advancements aid in minimizing the transmission gaps and facilitating real-time communications for improved call management and safety. Other factors, including the increasing utilization of rugged and ultra-rugged smartphones, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting infrastructural development, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
