Release Date: 10/16/2006 

Overland Park, KS – Sprint today announced an agreement to use QUALCOMM’s QChat® solution to provide high performance push-to-talk services to its customers.  Sprint, which currently offers the industry-leading Nextel Walkie-Talkie push-to-talk service to its customers on the Nextel National Network, expects to utilize QChat technology to extend high performance push-to-talk services to customers on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network, as well as provide interoperable push-to-talk services between users on both networks.

Sprint selected Mersoft to develop software and infrastructure necessary to enable the new services to utilize a Network Address Book for grouping teams together for push-to-talk calls.
