Connect Plus, RadioTrader's Broadband / LTE Cellular Network Platform
We'd like to introduce you to Connect Plus, a solution that provides immediate push-to-talk communication over the 3G/4G LTE cellular network, or using your site's broadband. There are a range of flexible packages that include:
- App Only (bring your own smartphone device, just pay monthly for the app)
- SIM and Service (purchase a compatible two-way radio, smartphone, body camera or tablet device)
- Complete Package (including device, PTT platform and SIM connectivity). Connect Plus is a feature-rich communications and safety platform that provides everything you need in one place, at very competitive prices.
RadioTrader has spent a great deal of time looking at the push-to-talk over cellular market, and evaluating the potential this brings to the two-way radio industry. We have carefully considered various platforms and extensively tested each. Rather than advertise everything available or offer cheap solutions which suffer from poor service levels or bad data, we have waited until the complete solution came along. Now is that time!
Expand your team's communications network, link sites together or keep an eye on lone workers in the field - anything is possible!
Connect Plus is more than just a push-to-talk over cellular platform; it has the ability to expand further, providing communications and features that previously would not have been possible in the two-way radio industry. Using Connect Plus you can create your own private network for multiple purposes, including:
- potentially global group communication
- individual private calling
- video calling
- live GPS mapping
- historical location tracking
- multiple emergency features
- plus a range of other features.
All this can be achieved by using your existing broadband / Wi-Fi infrastructure or by using the cellular LTE 3G / 4G LTE data network.
RadioTrader's Connect Plus system is unrivalled in terms of flexibility, and can be supplied in multiple ways for different contract lengths, whether that be app-only, running for just one month, or the complete package which includes a device, a multi-roaming data sim card and one of our service plans over a 24-month period.
An important point to make is that, unlike other multi-roaming SIM cards, our Connect Plus SIM cards are totally non-steered and will never favour a parent network over stronger carrier signals, a trick often used by other platforms to reduce costs.
