ESPOO, Finland -- Following successful trials over recent months, Turkcell, a GSM operator in Turkey, has begun offering its business customers commercial push to talk service, an easy and instant form of mobile communication. Nokia has provided and deployed the Push to talk over Cellular (PoC) network solution used by Turkcell.

Nokia's solution offers a full feature set and smooth migration to the upcoming Open Mobile Architecture (OMA) standard, and it is compatible with the IP multimedia subsystem as standardized in 3GPP. With more than 30 operator trials ongoing and commercial contracts with 22 operators, Nokia is leading the market for Push to talk over Cellular in GSM.
