Bravo pushes hybrid service

9 Jan 2008

The Saudi iDEN wireless operator Bravo has launched a hybrid account for its corporate users which offers separate business and private billing functions. Bravo’s iDEN network supports push-to-talk (PTT) dispatch radio functionality, which enables businesses to set up walkie talkie-style networks for communications between groups of employees. The networks also support traditional cellular calling and messaging with interconnection to the Kingdom’s GSM systems. Corporate customers can now pre-pay for the PTT connectivity and set a limit on the amount of business cellular calls that will be paid for by the company account; charges for calls above this limit will be transferred to the individual user. Bravo says the new style of account will give companies and their employees greater flexibility with their communications.
