    Default Tango Tango

    Good evening,

    Been seeing a number of articles & ads for this product. Anyone familiar with it that can compare it against some of the other products around?

    Zello, Wave, esChat, beOn, JPS, Kodiak and others.

    Tia,

    We have this product at my job. We have had this for about a year now, and haven’t had any real problems. The only thing I do not like about this product is the cellphone app.

    Tango Tango , "Zello, Wave, esChat, beOn, JPS, Kodiak and others."

    Many others!


    Holy cow, is there no end to the numbers of cloud based ROIP applications??

    Here is an idea for NPTSC and APCO: Lets come up with an standardized interoperable IP protocol for clear and encrypted LMR communications so that the network interoperability can vendor neutral.

    I would love to recommend the product because it works really well, but it is absolutely cost prohibitive especially for the rural department that i volunteer with. They wanted $1800 a year per channel for the system + $75 per user. As well as a $250 initial setup fee.

    As far as how it works. It ties the radio attached to their system in to essentially a talk group. You hold the push to talk button and it transmits to the radio and out to dispatch/ other users. The smartphone app in my opinion is well laid out and user friendly with options to also have private talk groups without the radio so it could be used as just another voice PTT app.

    There are so many proprietary solutions out there and they are mostly cloud based. You really don't own anything. The user community needs to get some standardized solution that is scalable, interoperable, etc.

    Basically done already, by way of the CSSI standard.

    Then, that should be the standard these ROIP products should adopt. Yet where are they?

    Just for cost comparison we use JPS VIA. $975.00 for the radio gateway, 1 time per channel cost. $50.00 yearly gateway fee per gateway and $4.99 a month per user. Excellent local tech support and the VIA app is pretty much ESChat. We have had an excellent experience and no issues to date.

    Most of them seem to have been built from generic PTToC platforms from the cellular industry, such as Kodiak, in the case of WAVE. They're not P25 specific platforms.
