Is WAVE PTX the Ultimate Communication Solution for Your Events?

Motorola Solution’s WAVE PTX is a powerful communications solution that enables event organisers to unlock the full potential of LTE communications technology. Let’s explore exactly what WAVE PTX is and how it can benefit service providers of all event sizes. 


WAVE PTX is a subscription-based group communication service that connects teams across different devices, networks, and locations. In practice, this typically involves providing two-way Push-to-talk (PTT) communication over either a private network or Motorola’s independent cloud-based network.

WAVE PTX consists of three core offerings:

  • The WAVE PTX Mobile App — converts smartphones into PTT handsets, with the added ability to share multimedia information like voice recordings, text messages, photos, and videos. 
  • WAVE PTX TLK Radios — these rugged and compact two-way smart radios combine 3G/4G and Wi-Fi® Connectivity to provide fast and reliable broadband PTT communications over a Europe-wide network.
  • WAVE PTX Dispatch — is a dispatching tool that allows users to easily communicate with personnel, regardless of the device they carry. WAVE PTX Dispatch can be operated from anywhere in the world. All it requires is an internet connection and a standard web browser. 


All WAVE PTX offerings come with geolocation mapping, making it easy to track team members, find addresses, set up meeting places, and dispatch workers based on their real-time location. 

The Benefits of WAVE PTX for Events

WAVE PTX is such a powerful solution because it combines the reliable, simple and instant communication of PTT radio with the ability to share details via text, photo, video or file attachment. Along with providing Europe-wide coverage, WAVE PTX can connect multiple device types including smartphones, desktop computers and traditional radio systems. 

SafeGuard, an additional WAVE PTX service, provides users with mission critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) features that include emergency calling, alerting and remote user checks — this allows supervisors to monitor the health of a user’s device including battery, signal, and location. Another SafeGuard feature, location-based grouping adds and removes members to talk groups as they enter or leave pre-defined areas. 

One of WAVE PTX’s greatest strengths is that it offers a complete end-to-end communications solution. And because WAVE PTX is charged at a fixed rate, the service is hired at a predictable cost.
