Smartphone applications company Alea joins TCCA

Alea Srl, an Italian applications and software development house, has joined TCCA, the global representative organisation for the critical communications ecosystem.

Alea, which is based in Pordenone, Italy, specialises in the development of smartphone applications for real-time communication. It has a dedicated Push-to-Talk (PTT) division and earlier this year, it signed an agreement with Leonardo to jointly develop multimedia broadband solutions for the public safety and professional markets. They will develop applications that will leverage 3GPP specifications for mission-critical voice, video and data over LTE and future 5G networks.

“Alea is highly committed to the development of standards based mission-critical solutions,” said Alea CEO Giuseppe Merlino. “Through joining TCCA, Alea is now a contributing member of the mission-critical community.”

“The development of applications for mission-critical users is attracting a huge amount of interest in the market,” said TCCA chief executive Tony Gray. “We extend a very warm welcome to the Alea team and look forward to their expertise enhancing the critical user experience.”
