The Orion Data Network

The Orion Data Network provides real-time data with unlimited solutions.

Visionist Consulting

Smarter Technologies’ privately-owned Orion Data Network is the world’s first fully end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) low-power radio 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.

The Orion Data Network combines radio frequency identification (RFID) and GPS asset tracking and security to create a low-power, long-range digital data network consisting of Orion gateways and tags. Gateways listen, and the tags report on the location and status of almost any assets—every two minutes when static, every 30 seconds when in motion.

Reporting on a wealth of data, the Orion Data Network delivers unparalleled real-time asset viability and security solutions.
