Thales, in partnership with ESChat, is offering Push-to-Talk (PTT) over satellite for customers across the globe. Thales has expanded its satellite communications footprint by providing a Push-to-Talk service that operates anywhere in the world utilising the ThalesLINK on Iridium Certus L-band product series.

Users that have purchased ThalesLINK solutions, such as Thales MissionLINK or Thales VesseLINK 200 and 700 systems, can now access a reliable low-latency PTT solution.

ThalesLINK solutions operate on the Iridium Certus network of 66 low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites that cover 100% of the globe, providing coverage anywhere in the world regardless of weather or terrain. Combining this technology with the ESChat application, Thales now provides an always-on robust PTT service for users anytime, anywhere.
