75% Cost Savings for Your Smart City

With our cutting-edge Orion Data Network RFID and GPS technology we can reduce your Smart City costs by up to 75% more than the other GSM\CDMA solutions in the market place.

Our solutions integrate with existing systems and are cost-effective, highly scalable, super-efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable.

The key to our success is working in close collaboration with government organisations and corporates to determine which services are a priority in terms of delivering value to the community, within your budget and time constraints.

IoT, RFID & GPS Technology

Orion brings together IoT powered sensors; a system of RFID, GPS and non-GPS tags and ethernet, mobile and satellite gateways to provide you with real time data feedback, reporting and instant alerts to your mobile devices.

The information is fed back for reporting every 15 seconds in motion and every 2 minutes when equipment and machinery is stationary. It doesn’t rely on a mobile phone network, so you never have to rely on to rely on SIM cards or bear the brunt of hidden or ongoing costs. The system is also self-learning and quickly creates data patterns and notices and alerts you to unusual activity.

Orion’s unique technology increases efficiency by simplifying data communications and reducing operational expenditure.

End-to-end Project & Supply Chain Asset Management

When you use our asset management solutions you can plan the growth of your Smart City much more easily. All assets and personnel can be tracked throughout the design, build, roll out, trial and go live phases. You can share equipment between sites; design predictive and preventative maintenance and asset retirement programs and carry out fast, accurate audits and inventory checks.

NFC Group’s automated asset solutions eradicate the risks associated with manual operations so you can reach your key performance indicator targets and meet your Smart City service level agreements on time and within budget.

Programmable Data Feedback & Reports

You can choose to measure a huge range of variables from temperature and deliberate tampering to accidental damage from rough handling inducing shock, penetration, tilting and container leakage. We also create solutions to optimise the lifecycle and efficacy of smart meters and smart water and waste systems.

Orion’s applications are almost limitless and our devices can be either overt or covert and can weigh in as little as 28 grams when a lightweight solution is required.

Data and Site Security

From a security perspective, Orion’s site management and access control capabilities are second to none. Our security solutions can help to modernise your smart city’s existing infrastructure and also form the backbone of a total digital transformation and creation of completely new sites and solutions.

The network is one of the most secure available as it is impervious to even the most sophisticated jamming techniques that hackers try to use.

Smarter from the Start

All successful Smart City plans incorporate a strong, data-driven Asset Management strategy with innovative solutions powered by the latest, most cost-effective technology. NFC Group will collaborate with you and your partners to implement the concept, design and delivery of your Smart City asset management and security strategy so it’s built into your wider business model, so you can benefit from Orion’s time and cost savings from the outset of your transformation.

Industry Standard SCADA

Regulatory compliance is high in this area so we have ensured that the Orion network enables industry standard SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition).
