ORION® Cellular Endpoints No Infrastructure. Rapid Deployment

ORION® Cellular endpoints are an evolution in AMI technology, strengthened by the Network as a Service (NaaS) approach. The innovative endpoints utilize existing IoT (Internet of Things) cellular infrastructure to efficiently and securely accomplish two-way communication of meter reading data via the LTE-M cellular network.

Innovative, two-way cellular endpoints for smart water applications.

AMI Without the Infrastructure.

NaaS solution utilizes existing IoT (Internet of Things) cellular infrastructure to efficiently and securely deliver meter reading data to the utility via the reliable cellular network, eliminating the need for standard, utility-owned infrastructure.

ORION® Cellular Endpoints

ORION® Migratable Endpoint (ME). Accessible Data. Enhanced Customer Service.

The ORION® Migratable endpoint (ME) is a two-way water endpoint for mobile applications, delivering meter reading data and status information to power the BEACON® Software as a Service (SaaS) mobile solution.

The ORION ME endpoint captures data profile information wirelessly for mobile applications.

Easy Access to Data

Allows users to capture data profile information wirelessly without having to directly access the endpoint

Future Capabilities

Easily capable of migrating to fixed network mode to support future utility AMI goals

Enhanced Customer Service
