This is Sonim’s first ultra-rugged2 feature phone that works with both 4G LTE and Wi-Fi networks. The XP5 is optimized for AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk3 so mobile workers can communicate quickly and be productive.

“Our goal is to keep men and women who face unpredictable work environments connected,” said Bob Plaschke, president and CEO, Sonim Technologies. “We listened to the needs of our customers. We built a tool that can be heard over the roar of a diesel engine or a production line stamping machine, and last through long shifts. The XP5 is a durable and reliable tool on a customers’ tool belt.”
“Quick and reliable communication is critical for field workers,” said Igor Glubochansky, executive director, AT&T Mobile & Business Solutions. “AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk on the Sonim XP5 helps keep them connected, whether they’re on a Wi-Fi network or the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network.6 This lets them adapt to the needs of their environment and better serve customers.”
