Motorola Inc. has announced the commercial deployment of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) solutions on a general packet radio service (GPRS) network in Asia-Pacific for Taiwan-based Chunghwa Telecom (CHT). With this announcement, CHT will be able to offer easy one-push PoC services to any of its estimated eight million wireless subscribers.

The PoC service is a form of interactive voice messaging that combines walkie-talkie and cellular phone connectivity, allowing users to quickly connect with another person or an entire group of friends and contacts at the quick push of a button on PoC-enabled handsets.

Motorola's PoC solution is in line with the industry consortium phase 1 pre-standards specification and can be upgraded to the OMA PoC standards, which are expected to be ratified next year. Motorola's standards-based PoC client software is available for license to third party GSM/GPRS, UMTS and CDMA handset manufacturers and software developers. Aside from GPRS, the PoC solution also works with cdma2000 1X and WiFi networks.
