Orion Satellite Systems Communications Systems and Equipment
Orion Satellite Systems has been providing satellite communication systems to the mining and civil construction industries for the past decade. Based in Perth, Australia, with offices in Sydney and Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, Orion provides solutions for companies nationally and internationally, including New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and South-East Asia.
Orion supplies tailored communication systems to mining companies looking for quality, reliable communications between remote sites and head offices. There are a number of technologies we utilise to deploy these services, including portable and land-based very small aperture terminal (VSAT) and single channel per carrier (SCPC). We also supply solutions for redundancy and back-up communications for use in emergencies.
Portable broadband, phone and fax communication system
Ideal for exploration and short-term projects, our portable communications system provides a practical and affordable way for remote projects to connect to the outside world.
Our Hughes-manufactured kit, Roadcase, contains everything you need to provide office-equivalent connectivity in a remote location. The only additional item needed is a power source, and once the kit is set up your camp will have broadband, telephony and fax services all via a low-cost satellite solution. The roadcase can also be supplied with a wireless router to enable the connectivity to be distributed wirelessly.
Fixed land-based remote communication
For longer term projects, Orion provides fixed land-based systems. These use a very small aperture terminal (VSAT) developed by Hughes, and are ideal for remote sites, providing a local area network, quality broadband and up to twelve phone lines supporting extension dialling and prepaid phone cards.
These systems are scalable to your operation, allowing you to tailor the solution design to meet any project’s requirement, be it connectivity or budgetary, at any stage of the project’s life cycle.
Dedicated solutions for business-quality broadband
Larger operations looking for commercial grade connectivity at their remote sites will find our single channel per carrier (SCPC) solutions ideal. This tailored solution is perfect for organisations needing large bandwidth volumes in a low latency environment, enabling video conferencing, fast data transfer, supply chain systems as well as VoIP and SIP services. This system is ideal if you are looking to run heavy web-based applications or provide social connectivity for your remote site staff.
It also features efficient bandwidth management tools including carrier-in-carrier technology, and can be run across the internet or terminated into a customer’s private network.
Companies needing telephone services only can make use of our voice-via-satellite service. This solution provides remote project and operations with PSTN comparable telephony via satellite without the industry-expected price tag, costing only 29c for an untimed national call in Australia.
Orion’s voice services support the common call functionalities such as line hunting, call forwarding, call waiting and prepaid calling cards.
Orion Satellite Systems capabilities
Orion has multiple satellite capabilities, enabling us to deliver quality satellite connections throughout Australia and to areas in the South Pacific and South-East Asia where communication systems are otherwise poor.
Broadband data and robust telephony from a single device makes the Orion offering a truly unique solution to remote site office solutions. With no massive overheads, Orion is able to sell its solutions a lot cheaper than many of its competitors.
Our VSAT hardware is low-cost, and we offer affordable subscription services, meaning the system will not present a worrying financial burden.
Orion is run by a team with significant experience in engineering and technical environments, and also has National Broadband Network (NBN) Retail Service Provider (RSP) accreditation. If you would like to know more about our products and services, please contact us using the details below.
Products and Services
Delivering enterprise-grade broadband services to areas with limited landline infrastructure, or to far-flung operations such as maritime or oil and gas exploration, has always presented challenges. A decade ago, most operators simply could not justify expending the resources to build out networks to serve these remote locations. All that began to change when the Hughes solutions became the affordable answer to delivering high-quality services in smaller networks, enabling both permanent and mobile operators to operate their own systems - no matter how remote the area.Read more
