Siyata Mobile gets US400k purchase order to equip first responders with Push-to-Talk devices


Canadian global cellular communications systems provider Siyata Mobile has received a US$400,000 purchase order to equip first responders in the North American market with its LTE Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (“PoC”) devices and accessories.

This latest win by Siyata follows the company's announcement - as reported by iTWire earlier this month - that it is set to equip government vehicles in Australia with its CP250 in-vehicle cellular device as part of a Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) pilot program, after receiving a purchase order from an unnamed Australian distributor.

Commenting on the first responder deal, Marc Seelenfreund, CEO and Chairman of Siyata Mobile, said, “Our Push-to-Talk devices continue to grab market share and is a direct result of our growing distribution and sales channels with Tier 1 cellular carriers and specialised LMR and cellular distributors”.

“PoC is delivered over cellular networks, allowing nationwide coverage coupled with data and applications to dramatically reduce costs and increase worker efficiency.

“This paradigm shift is in its infancy and we are strongly positioned to become a leading vendor of next generation PoC devices in our respective markets."
Siyata says it leverages the enterprise sales teams of its multiple cellular-carrier partners and specialised distributors to reach a wide variety of enterprise workforces, commercial fleets and first-responder vehicles.

“The UV350 is now in enterprise sales channels with carrier partners which have a combined market cap in excess of US$300 billion and over 200 million cellular network subscribers,” the company notes.

Siyata cites data from VDC Research showing that the continuous migration from LMR to PTT comes from various influences, including the increasing number of PTT communications users, demand for broadband data applications and the cost of LMR equipment and infrastructure.

And VDC Research forecasts the US population of PoC users to grow from 4.5 million in 2019 to 7.5 million by 2023 - a compound annual growth rate of 13.6%.
