Hytera 2-Way Radio

HORIZON by Hytera US

What is HORIZON PoC?

HORIZON, a Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) service by Hytera US, revolutionizes communication by leveraging Radio over IP (RoIP) technology. Operating much like Voice over IP (VoIP), RoIP devices—specifically handheld two-way radios—access cloud-based PoC services through internet connections enabled by 4G/5G/LTE and Wi-Fi networks. These devices, equipped with SIM cards akin to those in smartphones, connect to the HORIZON Nationwide PoC cloud controller, hosted on Hytera US Inc’s PoC controllers. This technology allows for expansive and reliable cloud-based communication services without the need for traditional radio network infrastructure.
