Cisco Instant Connect is used for two-way push-to-talk communications on Android devices using on premises enterprise push to talk IPICS servers. The Instant Connect application is perfect for connecting users with an instant push of a button over corporate Wi-Fi networks on-premises or off-premises networks (carrier networks).
Quick connect numbers - allows Cisco Instant Connect users on supported Sonim devices with a physical keypad to quickly connect to a talkgroup or place a call to a contact
Support for PTT operation by using the side button on the Sonim XP7 phone with the Sonim K50696 headset
A user can now place a point-to-point call to an IDC user in addition to the existing ability to place a point-to-point call to another contact.
New behavior for on Sonim Devices to when Tap and Join Talkgroup is configured for a short press of the Yellow key: If you press this key once, you now connects to the last talkline that is listed in the Talklines screen. If you press this key twice, you now connect to the second-to-last talkline that is listed, and so on
Low costs: Instead of paying a monthly service provider fee for onsite personnel, you deploy an on-premises solution can cost less. The savings from eliminating monthly fees quickly pay back the one-time capital investment. In addition, the Cisco solution is based on open standards, which eliminates the need to purchase, support, and manage proprietary solutions.
High quality experience: Cisco Instant Connect integrates with your existing Cisco Unified Communications and Collaboration services. Quality of service (QoS) and advanced voice codecs help to provide clear voice quality, even when the network is busy.
Scalability: Cisco Instant Connect can support up to a thousand concurrent users. Managing a single system saves time and money compared to managing multiple service provider contracts, and the administrator privilege makes it easy to add and remove talk group users.
Integrates with 2- Way Radios: The Cisco IPICS system can integrate mobile Android users with 2-Way Radio channels, which can reduce subscriber costs.
The Cisco Instant Connect solution integrates Android devices with Land Mobile Radio (LMR) that connected to the Cisco routers in the data center. For more information about Cisco Instant Connect, visit http://www.cisco.com/go/instantconnect or see our YouTube channel at https://goo.gl/wxbIun.
