Nokia Group Communications

For mission- and business-critical communications

Nokia's Group Communications solution compliant with 3GPP based MC-PTx standard, enables industrial and public sector users with a rich set of industry-specific functions such as push-to-talk, push-to-video and alert messaging, improving operational efficiency and enhancing situational awareness in their operations.

Designed for mission-critical communications, the solution supports up to 100,000 PTT and PTV users per network instance, and scales to support regional and national needs such as public safety networks and other wide area network use cases. Via the distributed architecture country wide deployments can be also implemented with more network instances (from 100,000 to even one million users).

Nokia Group Communications is supported by Nokia Industrial and other ruggedized and commercial handsets and tablets, combined with client applications, dispatch console and device management tools 
for optimized ease of use, cost and communication excellence.
