Siyata Mobile Inc., a global provider of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) devices and cellular signal booster systems, has announced a new partnership with Esper, the leader in device DevOps. It combines Siyata’s rugged Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) SD7 handsets with Esper’s full-stack Android Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software. Siyata Mobile will integrate Esper’s software onto SD7 handsets running a bespoke version of the Android operating system as part of the agreement.
The integrated solution enables previously unavailable functionality, such as faster device onboarding and provisioning. The SD7 is a one-of-a-kind Android-based gadget with no typical touch-screen display, intended exclusively for the MCPTT use case. As there are no specific installation or setup steps during device onboarding and continuous use, the agreement enables the installation of custom apps and software on SD7 devices, saving end-users a significant amount of time and energy.
Given the considerable chances for communication devices used by enterprise clients and public safety groups such as police and fire departments, Siyata Mobile believes that this relationship has tremendous commercial potential. Due of the nature of this demanding job, communication is best handled by robust devices without touch screens, which are inconvenient and unreliable in many scenarios. Many law enforcement agencies were forced to choose between handset convenience of use and the simplest equipment to manage and maintain at the fleet level.
Esper’s DevOps platform for Android devices is a straightforward Software as a Service (SaaS) product that allows enterprises to remotely scale and manage their mission-critical edge devices. Customers in any industry who are developing app solutions for mission-critical devices can use Esper’s robust cloud infrastructure. Esper simplifies the deployment, security, and management of distributed fleets of mission-critical Android edge devices for users of any Android device form factor.
