“Harris Corp. today announced a radio technology based on voice over IP (VoIP) that can be used globally for instant communications by small or large groups in business, public safety and other organizations. Called BeOn, the system will offer push-to-talk features similar to Nextel’s Direct Connect, but over VoIP instead, said John Vaughan, senior president of global marketing for public safety and professional communications at Harris,” writes Computerworld’s Matt Hamblen.
“BeOn will be provided by at least two wireless carriers, as yet unnamed, one in the U.S. and another abroad, as a service to customers, Vaughan said in an interview. Pricing will be set later by the carriers,” Hamblen writes.
