A new digital radio network being rolled out in New Zealand is aiming to boost health and safety and productivity.

Modelled on a similar network established in Australia, the advanced Orion Network will also offer trans-Tasman connections by linking with the Orion Network in Australia and will be accessible to all existing Motorola Solutions customers in New Zealand.

“That brings benefits for both countries by, for example, enabling instant and secure connection between businesses operating trans-Tasman without the high cost of cellular rates, ” CSE Genesis manager Logan Caulfield said.

The consortium behind the effort includes long-standing radio and critical communications specialists CSE Genesis, a division of CSE New Zealand, and TL Parker, in association with Motorola Solutions and Orion
Network Australia.

The network will be feature rich and powered by Motorola Solutions’ MOTOTRBO Capacity Max technology providing secure and reliable two-way radio.

CSE New Zealand managing director Harry Singh said the network’s partners expect total investment in the project to be several million dollars once nationwide coverage is complete. 

Caulfield said the Orion Converged Communications Core (OC3) network would provide a suite of converged voice, data and video applications integrated  with cellular networks. 

“The infrastructure for OC3 includes a nationwide trunked radio communications network that creates a bridge between narrowband and broadband data and voice services, unifying work groups across their entire operations - regardless of the device or they carry or where they are located,” he said.

TL Parker director and owner Garry Parker said OC3 is particularly relevant for businesses that have critical operations and infrastructures, including local authorities, utilities, ports and airports, transport and logistics operations, essential government departments and emergency services providers.

Caulfield said the network has already been rolled out in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and will be progressively extended across the nation for completion in 2020.
