Compliant with the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) standard, Emergency Calling and Alerting from Motorola Solutions makes it possible for those in immediate danger to quickly communicate with the individuals or groups who can provide assistance. With the push of a button, users can declare an emergency to ensure that all broadband PTT communication is immediately routed, with the highest priority, to the designated individual or group. The result is enhanced worker safety, particularly for those working alone. INITIATE AN EMERGENCY CALL Users press a hard or soft dedicated button to initiate an emergency call to an individual or group. For broadband PTT users whose safety is threatened, declaring an emergency is as simple as pressing and holding the emergency button in the application, or dedicated button on the device or accessory, to place the application in an emergency state. The application will display “emergency declared”, and all broadband PTT calls from the device will be treated as emergency calls with the highest priority. After entering the emergency state, the broadband PTT user can manually push the same button to place an emergency call. Alternatively, the administrator can set up the user for automatic emergency calling in which the floor is automatically held by the broadband PTT application for 10 seconds. If during that time there is no user interaction, the floor is released. For both manual and automatic emergency calling, the destination will be the same as the recipient(s) of the emergency alert. Authorized users, such as dispatchers and supervisors, can also originate emergency calls on behalf of specific users, participating in the call in case of a life-threatening situation. Broadband PTT users can cancel their emergency state at any time, or an authorized user (supervisor or dispatcher) can cancel their emergency state for them. In addition to supporting emergency calls initiated by broadband PTT users, Emergency Calling and Alerting makes it possible for emergency alerts originated by P25 land mobile radio (LMR) users to be shared with broadband PTT users. P25 users who are part of an ISSI interoperability talkgroup can have their emergency calls routed to broadband PTT users with the same priority and preemption as those originated on the broadband PTT system. Providing interoperability for P25-originated emergency calls ensures that any worker whose safety is threatened is able to reach the right resource for assistance, regardless of the network they are using.
