ORION Fixed Network (SE) features high-powered meter endpoints and easy-to-use network data collectors to deliver precise daily meter information right to your desktop.
ORION Fixed Network (SE) Endpoints
The ORION Fixed Network (SE) endpoint is a two-way water endpoint for use in fixed network meter reading deployments. ORION Fixed Network (SE) endpoints initially operate in mobile priority mode and automatically transition to fixed network priority mode of operation once ORION network gateway transceivers and BEACON AMA software are deployed. The endpoint automatically transitions back to mobile priority mode if the network is disrupted for an extended period of time
ORION Fixed Network (SE) Network Gateway Transceiver
The ORION Fixed Network (SE) network gateway transceiver receives, stores and sends water metering data from surrounding ORION Fixed Network (SE) meter endpoints to the BEACON AMA cloud-based software via a cellular data network or LAN backhaul. Network gateway transceivers deployed under a BEACON AMA traditional fixed network solution are owned, maintained and supported by the utility.
BEACON AMA is ISO 27001 certified and SOC 2 examined for security, availability and confidentiality.
