Sonim Technologies announced that the ultra-rugged XP8 smartphone has integrated with the Walkie Talkie in Microsoft Teams application with a dedicated push-to-talk (PTT) button – delivering a single, secure solution for all frontline worker communications and collaboration.

The XP8 combined with Walkie Talkie in Teams is a powerful solution for frontline workers, employees who run day-to-day operations inside companies. These employees work in a wide variety of conditions, and need instant, clear and secure communication that comes with a push-to-talk (PTT) enabled rugged device. Walkie Talkie in Teams on the XP8 works over Wi-Fi or cellular data, letting employees connect across the enterprise, including employees in the field or those located in different geographic locations.

“Frontline workers in many industries have been pushed to their limits as the result of the pandemic and are in need of technology that reduces friction by saving time, providing reliable communications and improving productivity,” said John Graff, Sonim Chief Marketing Officer. “Walkie Talkie in Teams on the Sonim XP8 meets this challenge by combining all of these capabilities onto one ultra-rugged device that connects users instantly with the push of a button.”
