Global Data Network

The Orion Network can be deployed anywhere in the world quickly, simply and cost-effectively. From real-time container tracking data analytics, to high value retail tracking and security applications, the Orion network is now the supply chain tracking network of choice for blue chip companies and SMEs.

Unlimited Applications

Orion offers a huge range of application possibilities. Almost any asset or application that requires real-time data can join the Orion network. Both hardware and software can be tailored to meet your company’s specific real-time data requirements.

Unlimitedly Scalable

Orion allows users to scale their network without limitations and create a private data and security network. The Orion Network is currently serving both SMEs and global top ten bluechip companies who have scaled their Orion solution to tailor their organisation’s supply chain requirements.

Smart Technology

Orion hardware is among the smartest technology available on the market today. Orion tags learn their environment by gathering thousands of pieces of data every second. After a short time learning their surroundings, unusual behaviour patterns can be spotted, and preventative measures deployed.

Reduce Commercial Costs

Orion is being deployed around the world at an increasing rate. Joining the network is simple and could save your organisation the cost of comparable technologies. Reducing cost by way of asset utilisation also has a positive corollary effect of reducing carbon emissions in the area in which is being deployed.

Intelligent Data

It’s not only Orion hardware that is packed with technology. Orion’s back-end infrastructure has been developed over the last decade with clients’ user experience of paramount importance in the evolution of the product. The result is a suite of APIs and an online asset management system capable of managing all of your physical assets and billing reports with ease.

The Network in a Box.

Orion, The Real-Time Data Network™ is a low power, ultra-narrow-band radio network. It is a network in a box: base stations (known as gateways) control all software, billing, devices and real-time API interfaces. Orion is already in 37 countries and has been used by governments and blue chips for mission-critical services worldwide.

How Does Orion Work?

Orion delivers real-time data from sensors and assets. The applications then
process the data into useful information.

Whether it’s supply chain management, real-time audits, security or metering, the
key measure of success is continuous, accurate data on every device. Orion delivers
this at a speed and price that are unmatched in the market.

Network Security Handled
through Microsoft Azure.

Orion securely routes the data to the owner via an API, dashboard or app.
It is truly plug-and-play: turn on a device, and it automatically joins the network.

Three Modes of Operation.

Orion is unique because it has three different modes of operation: Burst Mode, Hunt Mode and High Data Rate.

Alternatives to Orion.
