• Nationwide Communication Network in Sweden

    Energy and Utilities | Case Study

About 15% of Sweden lies north of the Arctic Circle. Temperatures vary greatly from north to south. Southern and central parts of the country have warm summers and cold winters, with average high temperatures of 20 to 25 °C in the summer, and average temperatures of −4 to 2 °C in the winter, while the northern part of the country has shorter, cooler summers and longer, colder and snowier winters, with temperatures that often drop below freezing from September to May.


OrbiGo is a professional mobile radio network operator dedicated to provide safe and reliable wireless communications services for government and business users in Sweden.

The company decided to set up the first national wide DMR communication network in the country which has the signal coverage in the whole Sweden. The vast but sparsely populated areas require large communications coverage with good signalling, even in the Arctic Circle; and the harsh environment requires the products to be highly rugged and reliable.

Some value-added data services are warmly welcomed by his varied business users like Lone worker, GPS positioning and Man down alarm.

“We are impressed about the flexibility and simplicity with Hytera and OrbiGo. Through OrbiGo we have got a state-of-the-art communication network that helps us being on top. Very important for us is also that the radios are small and discrete and that the talks cannot be intercepted.”
