PTT PoC or Push to Talk over Cellular is a feature similar to walkie-talkie that is provided over a cellular phone network. A typical Push to Talk connection connects almost instantly. One significant advantage of PoC is allowing a single person to reach an active talk group at a button press, thus users no longer need to make several calls to coordinate with a group. Just like Walkie.

Push-to-talk calls are half duplex communications while one person speaks, the other(s) listen(s).

Later versions of Push To Talk are based on 2.5G or 3G packet-switched networks and use SIP and RTP protocols. These particular versions of PTT are called Push to Talk over Cellular, which is abbreviated PoC.

The Open Mobile Alliance is defining PoC as part of the IP Multimedia Subsystem, and a first version of OMA PoC standard was finalized in first half of 2005. There are few full-fledged commercial deployments of OMA PoC. It is very unclear whether OMA PoC will be seriously launched in the European market.

A pre-standard version of PoC is also defined by the industry consortium made up of Motorola, Nokia, Ericsson, Siemens AG and AT&T Mobility with the aim of creating a commercial offering enabling interoperability between vendors
