Mutualink Delivers Video Sharing Push-to-Talk Solution

Chicago, IL – At IACP 2015 today, Mutualink introduced Edge @Team – one of the first-ever Push-to-Talk (PTT) offerings to enable users to securely send and receive streaming video, voice and text in real time.

Mutualink Unveils World's First Wearable Gateway for First Responders Using Intel® Technology

WALLINGFORD, Conn., – Mutualink has developed the world’s first wearable communications gateway that enables first responders to share multimedia information with command posts and other agencies in real time over secure wide area networks.
