Cellhire, the world leader in short term communications solutions for major global events, has partnered with Mobile Tornado, the market leader in convergent, instant communications to deliver Push to Talk technology.

Mobile Tornado’s Push to Talk technology allows the establishment of half-duplex voice links where one person speaks and the other listens, on a one to one or one to many basis. The technology uses traditional mobile phone networks allowing instant two way conversations between individuals and groups at the touch of a button.

Matt Bennett, Managing Director of Cellhire says, “We’re delighted to be able to offer this innovative technology to our customers. We think this will be incredibly useful for our customers especially during the busy summer we have ahead where traditional walkie-talkie frequencies are limited or unavailable”.

The partnership with Cellhire makes this technology available as a fully serviced rental solution for major events and large-scale corporate use.

Jeremy Fenn, Managing Director at Mobile Tornado said, "We are extremely proud and pleased to announce our partnership with Cellhire. Enterprises throughout the world are demanding ever-increasing efficiencies from their workforce and our Instant Communication solutions provide a more effective way to communicate".

Mobile Tornado’s solution delivers instant, efficient and effective communication and allows users to know the availability status of all the phones in their group. Cellhire have been offering rental solutions since 1987 and the new Push-To-Talk technology marries up with an existing fleet of smartphones, mobile phones, USB modems and mobile Wi-Fi hotspots.
