Darwin linked into ORION's national network

Darwin has been linked into the national ORION digital radio network, expanding the system from its traditional eastern and southern states’ base.

The nationwide network offers voice communications, messaging, tracking, graphical data display and other capabilities.

“As Australia’s largest commercial radio network operator, ORION is proud to be the first to include Darwin in a national network footprint,” said James Holmes, the ORION Network’s Darwin spokesperson.

The network uses Motorola Capacity Max technology, which is compliant with the DMR Tier III. The network supports a range of devices including handheld and vehicular radios, telematics devices, desktop consoles with TRBOnet, and smartphones with the Motorola WAVE push-to-talk over cellular application.

“The devices enable a range of features such as critical PTT voice calls, messaging, man-down and emergency duress, GPS and indoor location tracking, voice recording, telemetry and event automation,” said Holmes.

In addition to communications, the ORION Network provides almost-immediate data analysis and graphical dashboard display for management across a range industries including aviation, construction, facilities management, security, utilities, transport and logistics.

According to Holmes, the network currently supports 10 million calls per month across Australia.
