CSE Crosscom Expands DMR Network in Victoria, Australia
Monday, March 16, 2020 | Comments

CSE Crosscom expanded its Orion network in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. 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 central business district. 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.

“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,” said James Holmes, innovation manager - CSE Crosscom and spokesperson for the Orion network.

Underpinned by Motorola Capacity Max technology, the Orion Network supports tens of thousands of subscriber devices every day. Compliant to Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 3 standards the network offers multivendor 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.

“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,” Holmes said. “This is a unique advantage for those operations who require extended coverage in both metropolitan and regional areas and are vehicle or personnel heavy.”

“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,” said Holmes. “We’ve already onboarded prominent organizations from across the transport, infrastructure, facilities management, security and construction sectors nationally.”

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