MOTOTRBO Network Rolls Out in New Zealand
Tuesday, April 30, 2019 | Comments

A digital communications network based on Motorola Solutions MOTOTRBO technology will benefit New Zealand’s commercial organizations. The Orion Converged Communications Core (OC3) will provide highly secure and reliable voice communications, extensive coverage and access to feature-rich applications.

Modeled on a similar network in Australia, New Zealand’s Orion network is being established by long-standing radio network operators and critical communications specialists CSE Genesis, a division of CSE New Zealand, and TL Parker, in association with Motorola Solutions.

“With New Zealand’s services sector continuing to thrive and strong employment and gross domestic product (GDP) growth forecast in coming years, advanced communications will be essential to securing the country’s long-term prosperity,” said Dan Leppos, Motorola Solutions general manager of radio channel for Australia and New Zealand. “New Zealand’s Orion network and OC3 suite of advanced applications draws on our successful partnership in delivering Australia’s largest commercial digital two-way radio network.”

Motorola invests about US$500 million each year in research and development to deliver technology for mission-critical industries, he said.

The network is designed to meet the needs of any organization with industrial and critical infrastructure. The network will enable users to access a single platform of technologies to unify workgroups across their entire operations, regardless of the device they carry or where they are located.

“The Orion network will provide converged voice, data and video applications that integrate seamlessly with cellular networks,” said CSE New Zealand Managing Director Harry Singh. “The infrastructure includes a nationwide radio communications network that can connect with other public and private broadband LTE (Long Term Evolution) and Wi-Fi networks, creating a bridge between data and voice services.”

The network has already been rolled out in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and will be progressively extended across the nation, with completion expected in 2020.

When complete, the network will also provide trans-Tasman connections, linking the Orion network in New Zealand with all Australian states.
