What is Orion, The Real-Time Data Network™?

Smarter Technologies’ proprietary network, Orion, The Real-time Data Network™, is an end-to-end, low frequency, long range radio solution. The network is a unique low power ultra-narrow band 433 MHz UHF radio system. Orion complements (but is a significant advance upon) existing smart meter systems and asset trackers that rely on GSM, LoRaWAN or Zigbee HAN.

Become digitally transformed

Independent of a customer's own broadband services

Save time, increase efficiency and reduce costs

Immune to Wifi dead-spots or bluetooth range limitations

Unlock your data potential

Avoid GSM data costs

Looking for a wireless, cost-effective, secure and real-time solution to monitor, track, control and communicate with assets?

Smarter Technologies' privately-owned Orion, The Real-Time Data Network™, is the world's first fully end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) low-power network solution. This unique and proven system was developed alongside our long-standing involvement in the tracking and recovery of high-value assets, such as cash in transit.

Chain Background

Reporting on a wealth of data, the orion data network delivers unparalleled real-time asset viability and security solutions.

Offering monitoring, tracking and two-way communication, Orion is perfect for managing high volumes of data transmission in real-time.

How does orion work?

Orion is a plug-and-play solution. Simply power a device and it joins the low-power, long-range digital data network consisting of Orion gateways and tags. Gateways listen, and your tags and sensors report on the location and status of almost any assets—every two minutes when static, every 30 seconds when in motion.

Orion gateways can be mobile or static, and mains, battery or solar powered. Sensors can be retrofitted or integrated into other equipment.

Scale your network without limitations

Orion offers a huge range of application possibilities—almost any asset or application that could benefit from real-time data transmission. The plug-and-play networks can be used with any tags, sensors and applications.

Orion can be deployed anywhere in the world—quickly, simply and cost-effectively.

Example use case: Telecom tower tracking

Battery theft is a real problem for telecom sites around the world. Along with the costs of replacing cell tower batteries, operators are also faced with resource-intensive process of having to quickly find sites where batteries have been stolen.

The problems:

  • Cell towers are often found in remote locations
  • It’s relatively easy to break into these sites
  • The cost of theft runs into the thousands
  • Communication service disruptions
  • Unhappy customers

The solution:

Orion tags can be used to monitor battery theft of cell towers across the world.

  • 24/7, 365 cell battery tower tracking
  • Real-time location data for stolen battery recovery
  • Easy to use and install
  • Instant tampering alerts
  • Track temperature, charging voltage, functionality, and more
  • Extend battery lifetimes and warrantees

All data is transferred in real time to a customised remote battery management platform that can be accessed on any connected device.
