How much data does the service use for a smartphone / cell phone user?
Chatter PTT uses small data packets to send and receive all calls. This same method is used in regards to Chatter PTT’s data services. The amount of data needed is very small per call, which should not affect a customer’s data usage patterns per months.
An example of data usage per month can be seen below:
- Low monthly Chatter PTT user (10 to 20 Chatter PTT calls per day) = 20-30MB per month.
- High monthly Chatter PTT user (30 to 40 Chatter PTT calls per day) = 100MB per month
What broadband speed do I need if I use Wi-Fi or Internet?
Any standard broadband package that is currently available is more than sufficient to provide the data and speed required to connect and provide an excellent call quality service for customers.

How do you set it up Chatter PTT so that a Smartphone/ Smart Device is part of a particular Two Way Radio Channel Group?
To connect a Smartphone/ Smart device to a Two Way Radio Channel group through Chatter PTT, the users require a RoIP gateway hardware product which will allow the connection to be made. Upon successful connection through the RoIP gateway, you can then transmit calls from Smartphones/ Smart Devices into the Two Way Radio network and or alternatively a Two Way Radio user can make calls back to the Smartphone/ Smart devices.
Additionally, you will require the Chatter PTT licenses on your devices so you can then be part of a Two Way radio group. This will allow you to hear and participate in all group calls.
If the Smartphone/ Smart Device Chatter PTT user is on a cell phone call and a Two Way Radio call is made – what happens?
The Smartphone/ Smart device Chatter PTT user will continue on their current cell phone call without any changes. They will not hear the Two Way Radio call as this will be muted. But by using the Chatter PTT Service, the user can still hear the missed Chatter PTT call by retrieving the voice recording through the Chatter PTT voice messages area. This way, you never miss you a call.
How many Chatter PTT licenses and what hardware do I need if I want to connect 20 Smartphones/ Smart Devices to a Two Way Radio network which connects into a One talk group?
For every Smartphone/ Smart device you need one Chatter PTT License. You also need one Chatter PTT license for the RoIP gateway connected to the Two Way Radio network. So in this set up, a customer will require 21 Chatter PTT user licenses (20 licenses for the smart device users, 1 for the RoIP gateway)

We suggest setting up an emergency user group with all users connected. Under user group settings we suggest that you have ‘Auto-Connect’, ‘Default Group’ and ‘Permanent Group’ all turned on.
