Instant Connect v6.0
Instant Connect is used for two-way push-to-talk communications on Apple iOS™ devices using on premises enterprise push to talk IPICS servers. The Instant Connect application is perfect for connecting users with an instant push of a button over corporate Wi-Fi networks on-premises or off-premises networks (carrier networks). WHAT'S NEW• Dial call support• Location mapping for users and talkline participants• Alert notifications, including emergency and man down• Cisco Spark integrationMAJOR BENEFITS• Low costs: Instead of paying a monthly service provider fee for onsite personnel, you deploy an on-premises solution can cost less. The savings from eliminating monthly fees quickly pay back the one-time capital investment. In addition, the solution is based on open standards, which eliminates the need to purchase, support, and manage proprietary solutions.• High quality experience: Instant Connect integrates with your existing Unified Communications and Collaboration services. Quality of service (QoS) and advanced voice codecs help to provide clear voice quality, even when the network is busy. • Scalability: Instant Connect can support up to five thousand concurrent users. Managing a single system saves time and money compared to managing multiple service provider contracts, and the administrator privilege makes it easy to add and remove talk group users.• Integrates with 2- Way Radios: The IPICS system can integrate mobile users with 2-Way Radio channels, which can reduce subscriber costs. Instant Connect solution integrates Apple iOS devices with Land Mobile Radio (LMR) that connected to the Cisco routers in the data center.
