WAVE, TLK & Evolve: 3 Efficient Communications Tools

Though this year’s Motorola Roadshow had to go digital, it did not disappoint. Every session provided insight into the future of two-way radio. Many of the sessions covered new solutions, including two-way radio over LTE (cellular) and broadband networks. Our favourite new solutions from the show are WAVE, Evolve, and TLK series.


WAVE is a carrier independent broadband push-to-talk (PTT) subscription service from Motorola. The service is designed with a Kodiak-based cloud solution to extend two-way radio communications to phones, tablets, and PC’s. This online subscription simplifies day-to-day operations through WAVE Dispatch. Use any device from anywhere to login and access the communication tools you need. WAVE offers text messaging, photo, and video communications, as well as the following features:

  • Voice Dispatching
    • One-to-one and group broadcast PTT, plus talk group scanning with priority and voice message fall back
    • Easier call logging and recording at dispatch centres with instant alerts and supervisory override
  • Location and Mapping
    • Track users through an interactive map built for geofencing and in-map communication to coordinate with your team members
  • Safeguard Feature Set
    • WAVE offers emergency calling features, remote user check-ins, map-based communications, and an enable/disable function if your device is lost
  • Listening features
    • The service is perfect for coaching through discreet listening and ambient-listening with a hot-mic function


Evolve is a purpose-built device that can operate with WAVE through a dedicated Push-To-Talk button. With the data capabilities of an android and the ruggedness of a business-critical push-to-talk device, you can connect with your team through any application with full reliability. While this device has been built to connect to the Nitro LTE Network in the USA, it can still be used as part of a private LTE system on various LTE bands in Canada.
