ADVANCED COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK FOR NEW ZEALAND

02-05-2019

Motorola Solutions will join local radio and communications specialists to develop a state-of-the-art digital communications network in New Zealand, enabling the country’s commercial organisations to reach new levels of productivity and safety.

The Orion Converged Communications Core (OC3) will be powered by Motorola’s advanced Mototrbo Capacity Max technology, providing extensive coverage, highly secure and reliable voice communication, and access to feature-rich applications.

It is being established in association with long-standing radio network operators and critical communications specialists CSE Genesis, a division of CSE New Zealand, and TL Parker, and is modelled on a similar network in Australia.

Dan Leppos, Motorola Solutions’ General Manager of Radio Channel for Australia and New Zealand, says the new network represents a major advance for the company in New Zealand.

“With New Zealand’s services sector continuing to thrive, and strong employment and GPD growth forecast in coming years, advanced communications will be essential to securing the country’s long-term prosperity,” he says.

“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.

“Each year we invest around US$500 million in research and development to deliver purpose-built technology for mission critical industries. New Zealand’s commercial organisations will benefit from that investment by accessing the Orion network.”

Harry Singh, CSE New Zealand’s Managing Director, says the network is designed to meet the needs of any organisation with industrial and critical infrastructure.

“The Orion network will provide converged voice, data and video applications that integrate seamlessly with cellular networks,” he says. “The infrastructure includes a nationwide radio communications network that can connect with other public and private broadband LTE and Wi-Fi networks, creating a bridge between data and voice services.

“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.”

Garry Parker, TL Parker’s owner and Director, says the network is suitable for a broad range of organisations, from utilities to transport and logistics operations, government departments and beyond.

”Secure and reliable communication between workgroups makes a big difference, especially in times of emergency to keep employees safe and informed as events unfold,” he says.

The network has already been rolled out in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and will be progressively extended into other locations for completion in 2020.

When completed, it will also provide trans-Tasman connections linking it with all Australian states.
