For the first time smartphone users can use unified Thuraya and cellular networks for mission critical, crisis management, defense and civil protection operations, thanks to the launch of Crypttia.
Crypttia is an IP based command and control platform developed by Eyeonix and launched by Thuraya Telecommunications. It combines terrestrial and satellite voice technologies to bring push-to-talk services for smartphone users.
The portable version, which the company claims is deployable in less than five minutes, can serve as a fully operational command, control and decision support system. It requires less than one day to train mobile users, command and control centre training is completed in three days, and administrator training takes five days.
Bilal Hamoui, Thuraya chief commercial officer, said: “With Crypttia, Thuraya has now added a very powerful turn-key solution to its government and mission critical portfolio. Distributors can increase revenues by adding mission critical data for existing users; and by attracting new government organisations and agencies, who will value the range of services available on Crypttia.”
Andreas Katsigiannis, Eyeonix general manager said: “Through the Crypttia platform, Thuraya will deliver the best solution in the marketplace, offering BYOD in mission critical IoT. Crypttia delivers speechless incident and emergency management.”
Crypttia is a speechless system: command centre executives receive updates and task completion data through a configurable, colour coded status level system. It can send and receive live images, and store and forward videos. When voice or text exchange is required, push to talk (PTT) voice and short message service communications for group and private users are always to hand.
