Unveiled today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the solution integrates Mobile Tornado’s Push To Talk platform with Accel’s ‘Voyager’ connected car smartphone to deliver safe, instant connectivity and communication that is ideal for fleet and commercial vehicles through to taxis and HGVs.

These devices can be deployed across many of our vertical markets, and we look forward to introducing them to our customers and partners across the world.”
