Your World, Smarter.

Orion Data Network

The Orion Data Network provides real-time data with unlimited solutions.

Reporting on a wealth of data, the Orion Data Network delivers unparalleled real-time asset viability and security solutions.

Smarter Technologies’ privately-owned Orion Data Network is the world’s first fully end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) low-power radio network solution. This unique and proven system was developed alongside our long-standing involvement in the tracking and recovery of high-value assets such as cash in transit.

The Orion Data Network combines radio frequency identification (RFID) and GPS asset tracking and security to create a low-power, long-range digital data network consisting of Orion gateways and tags. Gateways listen, and the tags report on the location and status of almost any assets—every two minutes when static, every 30 seconds when in motion.

Features of The Orion Data Network

Global Data Network

The supply chain tracking network of choice for blue-chip companies and SMEs: the Orion Data Network can be deployed anywhere in the world quickly and cost-effectively.

Unlimited Applications

Almost any asset or application that requires real-time data transmission can join the Orion Data Network. Hardware and software can be tailored to meet companies’ real-time data requirements.


Scale without limitations and create a private data and security network tailored to your organisation’s supply chain requirements.

Smart Technology

Orion GPS RFID tags learn their environment by gathering thousands of pieces of data every second. After a short learning period, unusual behaviour patterns can be identified and preventative measures deployed.

Reduce Commercial Costs

Joining the Orion Data Network could save your organisation up to 75% of the cost of comparable technologies. Reducing cost by way of asset utilisation also has a positive corollary effect of reducing carbon emissions.

Intelligent Data

Orion’s back-end infrastructure has been developed with user experience in mind. The result is a suite of APIs and an online asset management system capable of managing all of your physical assets and billing reports with ease.
