Network Innovations Introduces Groundbreaking Radio-over-IP Interoperable Mission Critical Push-to-Talk Solution

Agreement with Etherstack paves way for product commercialization with SATRAD HARMONY

Aug. 07, 2023 (Calgary, Canada) — Network Innovations has announced the development of a groundbreaking Radio-over-IP interoperable Mission Critical Push-To-Talk (MCPTT) solution named SATRAD HARMONY.


SATRAD HARMONY is an edge device that enables interoperability across disparate Land Mobile Radio (LMR) technologies and bridges the gap between analog and digital two-way radio, cellular, and satellite, thus ensuring an easy-to-use, device agnostic, interoperable MCPTT emergency communications solution.


Aimed at federal, state, and local public safety agencies and organizations, as well as utilities and entities that rely on MCPTT communications technologies, SATRAD HARMONY helps solve interoperability challenges between multiple agencies and organizations by connecting disparate radio systems and technologies over IP-enabled virtual talkgroups.


Steve Hailey, Product Director of PTT Solutions at Network Innovations, stated, “Network Innovations has provided MCPTT services to federal, state, and local public safety end-users for over 30 years, and stands ready with our device-agnostic approach to interoperability, ensuring seamless communications and supporting mission success. SATRAD HARMONY builds on our proven success in providing reliable MSAT, Iridium, and other satellite-based PTT solutions to address mission-critical requirements now and in the future.” 


Network Innovations has also entered into an evaluation agreement with Etherstack to assess select Etherstack products as key components of SATRAD HARMONY.


Gopinath Ramanan, Chief Technology Officer at Network Innovations, said, “We are pleased to be working with Etherstack as part of our next generation product development utilizing their standards-based 3GPP compliant products to bring true interoperability between LMR, cellular, and satellite for Mission Critical Push-to-Talk. We see great synergies between the two companies.”


Doug Chapman, Senior Vice President/GM Americas at Etherstack, said, “Etherstack envisions a considerable market impact working with Network Innovations, a leading satellite PTT solutions provider, in delivering new interoperable solutions to be built on our tradition of partnering via standards-based license agreements, and both companies’ commitment to the mission critical market demand for interoperation and interoperability across various satellite, cellular, and LMR domains.”


Note: Network Innovations will showcase SATRAD HARMONY at APCO 2023 in Nashville, Tennessee, from August 7th – 9th, 2023, in Booth #2136.
