Partnering to equip event personnel and volunteers with turnkey communication solution

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 29, 2024 / Siyata Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq:SYTA, SYTAW) ("Siyata" or the "Company"), a global developer and vendor of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) handsets and accessories, announces it is providing its SD7 handsets for use at the 2024 Special Olympics. The Company has partnered with ESChat, a provider of broadband Push-to-Talk (PTT) services, to provide secure PTT communications for event personnel and volunteers.

The 2024 Special Olympics State Winter Games will be held on and between February 23-24, 2024 in Syracuse, NY.

Siyata CEO, Marc Seelenfreund, commented, "We are honored to support the Special Olympics again this year and renew our partnership with ESChat. ESChat's PTT service integrated with our ruggedized handsets creates a comprehensive, turnkey solution that provides secure communications that will help keep athletes, coaches, volunteers and spectators safe by keeping event personnel reliably connected."

The SD7 enables push-to-talk communications for users in a simple easy-to-use rugged Android based Push-To-Talk (PTT) handset with excellent sound quality that operates over a high bandwidth 4G LTE network to provide consistent connectivity. Its IP68 rating, resistance to water and dust, drop protection, and robust battery make it well suited for use in harsh winter conditions. Users of the SD7 can initiate and receive talk-group calls, receive private calls, notify others of emergencies and report locations.

President of ESChat, Josh Lober, said, "We've seen strong adoption across our markets for ESChat service on the Siyata SD7. EMS communication is a primary focus of our company, so working with the Special Olympics is a natural fit. The 2024 Winter Games in Syracuse will be the sixth Special Olympics event we have served, and we're proud to be recognized as an official sponsor of the Special Olympics of New York (SONY). The combination of the Siyata SD7 and ESChat will once again provide SONY personnel a seamless and secure communications solution that is ready to operate, easy to use and most importantly, supports a safe and successful event."
