Connect Plus, RadioTrader's Broadband / LTE Cellular Network Platform
We'd like to introduce you to Connect Plus, a complete solution that provides a platform for a Push-To-Talk Over Cellular network, using your site's broadband or the 3G/4G LTE data network. With flexible packages that include the device, the app platform and multi-roaming SIM, Connect Plus provides everything you need in one place, at very competitive prices.
Here at RadioTrader we have 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, we have waited until the complete solution came along. Now is that time!
Expand your communication, create your own network
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 network for multiple purposes, ranging from global group communication, individual private calling, video calling, GPS mapping, historical location tracking and multiple emergency features, plus a range of other features.
Communication can be achieved by using your existing broadband / Wi-Fi infrastructure on site, or by using the cellular LTE 3G / 4G data network.
RadioTrader's Connect Plus platform 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 app, device and multi-roaming SIM card required for a 24-month period. Anything is possible. 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.

APP Only - To Use On Existing Devices
We can also supply an app-only version of the platform. This is an ideal solution if you currently have existing devices or smartphones that you are already comfortable using, or to reduce the costs of rolling out new devices. The app can be downloaded onto your device and then you are able to log in and access the system. Typically there is less training involved with the app-only device, as there is no need to learn how the device operates and the platform is an easy to use, push-to-talk method.
