Orion Labs Improves Responsiveness and Productivity in Voice Technology

By

Orion Labs, which is a voice platform for teams in business, enterprise, and government organizations, has unveiled several updates and engagements with industry leaders. These updates are designed to make it easier for organizations to improve responsiveness and productivity through powerful new voice technology. The updates come at a time where enterprises increasingly look to voice as the interface to access and input information and to trigger time saving automated processes.

“There is a massive and profound shift across the real-time voice market,” said Jesse Robbins, CEO and founder, Orion Labs. “Today we are expanding Orion’s constellation of products and integrations that make a new category of voice applications and services available to the entire ecosystem. We’re honored to work with industry leaders like Sonim, Kyocera, JPS Interop, and Mutualink as we build a world powered by voice.”

Orion’s new AppTalk Plus turns select Android phones with dedicated physical push-to-talk (PTT) buttons into smart walkie-talkies. Compatible phones include the Sonim XP7, FirstNet approved Sonim XP8, the Kyocera DuraForce Pro, and the Kyocera DuraForce XD.

By downloading the Orion app from the Google Play Store onto one of these compatible handsets, users will immediately be able to talk with other Orion users, see group members’ real-time location and access features like Orion Translator for real-time language translation and Orion’s IFTTT integration.

The new Orion Radio Bridge allows organizations with traditional land mobile radio (LMR) systems to extend the range and reach of their communications. This happens without requiring additional radios or signal-boosting equipment.

The bridge connects to most existing LMR systems, such as Radio over IP (RoIP). It enables any organization to take advantage of Orion features without overhauling their existing setups. With the Orion Radio Bridge, people who use push-to-talk radio handsets can connect to others on the Orion Voice Platform, whether they’re using Onyx smart walkie-talkies, AppTalk, or AppTalk Plus.

By integrating with the JPS RoIP API, LMR systems that utilize radio gateways from JPS Interoperability Solutions gain access to the Orion Voice Platform. This includes Orion’s advanced voice and virtual assistant technology, including the Orion Panic Bot, in addition to Orion’s award-winning push-to-talk service.
