Geelong as a hub of industrial and commercial trades, was a priority focus for the Network with its proximity to Melbourne CBD.

CSE Crosscom, Australia’s leading telecommunications integrator, today announced the expansion of its Orion Network in Geelong, Victoria. Part of a continuous Australia-wide growth strategy, the investment in Victoria focused on developing the Network’s VHF infrastructure to allow for uninterrupted, extended reach into greater Geelong as well as increasing capacity of the existing UHF system.

Geelong as a hub of industrial and commercial trades, was a priority focus for the Network with its proximity to Melbourne CBD.

“We are proud to extend our reach in Geelong and believe the investment will drive positive economic impacts for both large and small business in the region,” commented James Holmes, Innovation Manager - CSE Crosscom and spokesperson for the Orion Network.

The Network’s VHF coverage in Victoria now reaches from Anglesea to Castlemaine in the north, Healesville in the northeast and out to Warragul in the southeast.

“An interoperable platform, the Orion Network is the only commercial communications system to converge both UHF and VHF powered radio technologies on the same network. This is a unique advantage for those operations who require extended coverage in both metropolitan and regional areas, and are vehicle or personnel heavy,” explained Holmes.

Underpinned by Motorola Capacity Max technology, the Orion Network supports tens of thousands of subscriber devices every day. Compliant to DMR Tier 3 standards the Network offers multi-vendor interoperability supporting equipment and infrastructure sourced from a huge range of DMR compliant suppliers. This flexibility is critical to final solution design to meet the specific functional, environmental and budget objectives of the client.

“Because DMR Tier 3 can carry both voice and data, the Orion Network’s unrivalled coverage when combined with countless smart applications is uncovering huge productivity efficiencies and cost improvements for our customers. We’ve already onboarded prominent organisations from across the transport, infrastructure, facilities management, security and construction sectors nationally,” shared Holmes.

“Popular features driving new safety standards include critical push-to-talk voice calls, messaging, man- down and emergency duress, GPS and indoor location tracking, voice recording, telemetry and event automation.”
