SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Sonim Technologies, the leader in push to talk IMS solutions for operators and the global provider of high-performance mobile VoIP applications and devices, today announced that KPN, one of Europe’s leading telecommunications companies, has launched the first standard’s based Push-To-Talk system. Effective today, KPN’s enterprise customers will have access to Sonim’s XP1 “tough phone” mobile telephones as Walkie-Talkies.

Sonim hopes to help wireless operators around the world replicate Nextel’s success in the United States by bringing a comprehensive, OMA standards-based Push-To-Talk system to operators and enterprises in Europe. This open approach to integrated mobile VoIP services utilizing IMS is being embraced by companies and operators across Europe, most notably with KPN, Telefonica Móviles and Dialect, a large value added reseller in Sweden.

"With Sonim’s XP1 handset and robust push-to-talk service, we anticipate a strong launch today, offering businesses an affordable group communications system that supports a uniform standard across different mobile telephones. From KPN’s point of view, Sonim is the ideal partner when it comes to supplying these services to our customers,” explains Eelco Blok, a member of the Board of Management of KPN. “Sonim offers a unique combination of Push to Talk applications and equipment, which means that we are able to offer the best and most comprehensive communications solution that is currently available on the market.”

“We’re breaking ground for OMA Push-To-Talk in Europe and we’re proud to have been an early and aggressive driver of standards-based IMS service to get us where we are today,” said Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim Technologies. “We’re delighted to experience such momentum in Europe with respected operators like KPN and Telefonica Móviles. Sonim is in a unique position to create a unique value in Europe that Nextel captured in the United States and we’re aggressively acting on this strategy.”
