Saudi Telecom Company (STC), a Saudi Arabia-based digital company that offers telecommunications services, has selected Motorola Solutions to deliver a next-generation mission-critical Push-to-Talk (PTT) service to provide its customers with instant communication and collaboration capabilities.

Motorola Solutions will deliver a scalable, highly resilient, network-integrated 3GPP standards-compliant mission-critical system that provides secure connectivity over Specialized by STC's LTE network, claimed a press release.

"The new service will offer enhanced multimedia capabilities including push-to-video and text, file transfer, location, and geofencing services, with seamless connection for users regardless of the type of device they carry. The operator can also expand the service with new mission-critical solutions and applications in the future," it said.

“Our investment will immediately enhance communication for our customers, whilst future-proofing the network for new services in coming years'', said Hesham Almomen, chief technology officer at Specialized by STC. “As the leading telecommunications operator in Saudi Arabia, our network must be secure, reliable, and optimized for safety to support our wide range of customers spanning government agencies, public safety, and enterprise organizations.”

“We look forward to building on our successful partnership with Specialized by STC to offer secure and dynamic communication capabilities that support customers’ operational and security priorities,” said Patrick Fitting, regional vice president of the Middle East and Africa at Motorola Solutions.
