Resources

Orion works with some of the remotest camps on the globe, providing secure end-to-end voice, data and internet services.

I need satellite communications on site

We provide office-like connectivity via satellite technology, with voice and data options for mining operations across Australia, including fixed land-based systems, portable communications systems, voice services and large-scale dedicated satellite solutions.

I need faster access for a mining camp

Whether it is for work or to ensure workers can access social media and entertainment, we provide cost-effective business and recreational communications for mining camps.

I need to communicate with remote operators wherever they are

Orion provides both relocatable and portable satellite communications in various forms to suit short-term camps or exploration teams. This includes solutions for communications on the move, L-Band Products, long-range Wi-Fi, LTE, or relocatable VSAT terminals based on your requirements on the ground.

I need to be able to collaborate online in real time

Orion offers different bandwidth configurations that can accommodate real-time collaboration over your satellite service. More importantly, we offer solutions that improve the speed and reliability of communications between your site and headquarters. Our VSAT solutions deliver connectivity with as little as 700-900 millisecond delay, end to end.

I need a reliable, durable connection

End-to-end ownership of the satellite network (from satellite to earth station to remote site), allows Orion to deliver a highly reliable satellite communications service. Our network provides an uptime of over 99.8%. A dedicated R&D team and the thorough testing undertaken by Orion engineers means we only deploy hardware and solutions that we are confident will provide customers with a reliable and robust internet connection wherever they are. We also deliver redundancy services and can keep track of your hardware to ensure the proactive identification of any issues that could arise.

I need to monitor remote sites

Orion is experienced in providing solutions, premium support, 24/7 monitoring and alerts for some of the most remote locations on the globe. We provide automated network monitoring as a managed service, send email or SMS alerts when identified thresholds are reached, and can employ a Web Portal or API to monitor remote sites. Our helpdesk team is on call 24/7 to respond to any incidents.

I need a secure way to connect to our head office

Using VPNs to encrypt satellite traffic for secure communications with head office can interfere with a modem’s ability to apply acceleration protocols — meaning your data is secure but slow, and reducing user experience.  To counter this, Orion has had great success in developing a number of workarounds for different requirements, all of which take advantage of Orion’s state of the art infrastructure.

I need a scalable set of solutions as we grow

Orion works by working with you — we tailor our service, hardware and solutions to your specific needs, now and into the future. We understand you require communications that can evolve as your project changes, and embed this from the start in all design, whether you are a two-man exploration team or a camp growing to 300.

I need help with optimising the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is revolutionising how we work, and Orion’s engineers are right on the forefront. IoT demands better connectivity across areas and for this to work, you need total ownership of the network, tailored solutions and expert engineers. Our adaptability means we mould an IoT solution to suit your specific network needs.

Agriculture

From the farm gate to the globe, we offer fast, reliable connections that boost your business and improve your lifestyle.

I need internet for my home

We are resellers of government-subsidised nbn™ Sky Muster™ services and can also provide you other satellite service options, right through to business-grade connectivity. We are happy to work with you to see what solution best suits your needs.

I need internet across my farm

Many of our farming customers use long-range Wi-Fi set-ups with multiple VSAT systems. A VSAT is a ‘very small aperture terminal’ that is effectively a two-way satellite ground station with a dish antenna. They can be used for narrowband data (which uses a narrow range of frequencies that are useful for things like voice, GPS signals or radio) or broadband data (which uses a broader range of frequencies and is both faster and more secure). If you let us know your requirements, we can advise on the most efficient and cost-effective solution.

I need a faster connection

There are many ways to boost the speed of your internet connection, such as options to increase your bandwidth, as well as link optimisers and WAN optimisation solutions that can also reduce your operation costs. Give us a call and we can suggest something that will suit your needs.

I need to monitor my network over time

We provide reliable, remote administration and can offer automated network monitoring as a managed service. Our helpdesk team is on call 24/7 to respond to any incidents and we can provide you with email or SMS alerts when identified thresholds are reached. This keeps you in the picture no matter what.

I have internet, but what else can I do with it?

The business of agriculture is changing fast and your connection should mean more than keeping up with news and events. Consider the possibilities: e-learning from home, better commerce and business transactions, automation of your feed lots, irrigation and gates or even constant monitoring and metrics using the Internet of Things. Talk to us to find out what possibilities are yours.

Services in the bush

There’s no such thing as too remote for our clever community, remote and regional connection solutions.

We need better phone services for our community

Orion provides support to remote and regional communities, ensuring the connectivity needed to work, learn, shop, chat and be entertained. This can include telephone services for your community using satellite services and VoIP (voice over IP) telephones, calling cards or internal dialling options. Let us know what you need and we will show you how we can help.

We need internet across our community

Depending on your community’s size and span, we can suggest many ways to deliver better internet connectivity. This can include long-range wireless, microwave links, multiple bundled services, or other solutions. Every community is different, so we will tailor a service just for you — at a highly competitive price.

We need to support our telehealth and education services

With many applications for telehealth and education services out there, a one size fits all solution is rarely appropriate for rural communities. Instead, we work with the requirements of the specific telehealth or education application to ensure we can deliver you a reliable and functional service. If you need help choosing applications we can assist here as well, testing the product you have in mind and producing a service and system that works.

We need support for when networks fail

When the rain comes, the water rises or the wind blows, you still need to connect to the outside world. Orion specialises in providing stand-by or redundancy services that kick in if your primary network fails. We have special plans for redundant links to provide failover communications for critical communications — one major benefit of satellite is that you do not need to rely on infrastructure at the base location. We also back up all our products and services with a 24/7 helpdesk staffed by experts in our systems who can resolve your problem quickly. If for any reason the problem can’t be resolved remotely, in most cases we can be on site within 48 hours to restore your service fast.

We can support you in any way you need.

We need to improve our connectivity

There’s no such thing as too remote when considering satellite communications, which is why Orion is able to support local governments and government agencies in some of the most remote and inaccessible locations in the world. We have a variety of service plans and solutions suitable for hard-to-reach places, including solution subsets such as SCPC (single channel per carrier), which use dedicated frequencies and are suited to constant traffic. We also offer TDMA (time division multiple access) technologies, which have fast become the preferred option for many operators, as they offer a lower cost of ownership for networks requiring satellite backhaul. We can help your community with managed installation, expert engineering for your solutions and the strategic design of a network and system that will meet your needs.

We need better phone and internet across our community

Orion can provide managed phone, data and general internet services via satellite, which can make all the difference to your community members. Whether it is being able to access education materials from home or using PayPass at your community co-op, secure, reliable connectivity is vital for bringing you closer.

We need support for when networks fail

We provide communities, camps and remote locations with redundant links that provide ‘failover’ communications if a primary communications service fails. One major benefit of satellite is that you do not need to rely on infrastructure at the base location. We also back up all our products and services with a 24/7 helpdesk staffed by experts in our systems who can resolve your problem quickly. If for any reason the problem can’t be resolved remotely, in most cases we can be on site within 48 hours to restore your service fast.

We need a back-up for safety

We pride ourselves on only using hardware that we are confident can provide the service you need — which means lower failure rates and better peace of mind. For those applications where constant connectivity is essential, our back-up network support systems can remove any concern by providing a one-to-one auto-redundant system.
