February 19 '08: Sprint's Nextel Direct Connect push-to-talk service customers can now communicate using Motorola's MOTOBRIDGE IP solution, Washington Technology reported. "The new connectivity means that now any of the 20 million Direct Connect users can communicate with users of other radio systems, either on a day-to-day basis or during an emergency," WashTech reported.
Scot Smith, Sprint's public sector solutions manager told WashTech, "This solution allows for full control of the Direct Connect Network." Users of the network will be able to place private or group calls as well as creating communications groups of up to 200 people who are all connected by a single click of a button."Rather than using a cellular network, Direct Connect uses a nationwide digital trunked radio network to carry voice communications," WashTech reported. "The handsets can call any other user on the network with the push of a button, either over the network connection or with a direct radio link in a five-mile line of sight," WashTech reported. Public safety agencies can "get a priority-connect service that will move their calls to the head of the queue during emergencies," WashTech wrote.
