Due to technology limitations, utilities today install and manage communications networks that are purpose-built for each application. With the GE MDS™ Orbit Platform, utilities can now capitalize on uniform security to converge disparate applications within one network and reduce personnel training time. MDS Orbit is a highly versatile wireless platform that provides multiple wireless access technologies depending on terrain, customer concentrations and economy.

MDS Orbit Platform supports a diverse portfolio of radios to extend network coverage in various spectrum and geographic conditions, providing 2G/3G/4G LTE cellular solutions for public and private connectivity globally. MDS Orbit platform — both MCR and ECR — comes in 3 application modules: Unlicensed 900MHz, Licensed Narrowband, and Cellular. MDS Orbit’s MCR 900MHz unlicensed Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) radio offers high throughput with low latency while supporting a variety of deployment topologies. MDS Orbit’s Licensed Narrowband (LN) Series radio with QAM and adaptive modulation, offer 6 times increase in speed, cutting edge performance and versatility in the 400 and 900 MHz frequency bands.

MDS Orbit platform is designed with a common operating system, device management tools, and a comprehensive networking and cyber-security framework. These commonalities significantly:

  • Reduce the overall learning time for users
  • Simplifies the set-up and commissioning of communications networks
  • Enables the deployment of a variety of configurations and topologies
