Critical Communications using Digital Mobile Radio Catalyst Communications Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Radio Control over IP solutions to the Push-to-Talk (PTT) marketplace, has joined the Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Association. The company recently introduced its new Propulsion Console for DMR and has demonstrated it at a variety of trade shows.
