The Tactilon Dabat comes fully equipped with Android features and special ergonomics for radio use, which consolidates its position as a smart, strong and secure device offering full critical connectivity.

D-18 of Sheikh  Saeed Hall 3. The company's strong ties with Nedaa is expected to help showcase the significant role of modern devices like the Tactilon Dabat and the importance of public safety mission critical LTE networks--particularly in the continuing move towards smart city transformations.

Sleekly designed with a regular fully rugged smartphone look, the revolutionary device offers special multi-purpose push-to-talk buttons that are familiar fixtures on Airbus TETRA radios. It has a wide touchscreen ideal for sending messages and also has a physical push-to-talk (PTT) button for easy use when talking to other TETRA groups. The unit, which is powered by a 4600 mAh changeable, long lasting and rechargeable battery, is rated both IP65 and IP67.

The GCC region represents a very large and highly strategic market for us, which has expressed a continuously increasing demand for this kind of technology. Being at this year's show will give us the opportunity to network with private and public companies and organizations--exploring potential partnership opportunities and joint cooperation.”
