The pilot was executed in collaboration with a Malaysian fleet operator KR Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd. Orion was installed on the entire fleet of the LTCP (long-term car park) shuttle bus, consisting of 6 active buses owned by KR Travel. The free shuttle service is provided at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport at both airports, KLIA 1 & KLIA 2.
Asia Mobiliti is claiming Orion as the first Malaysian-made device in the transportation and mobility industry to feature dual LTE and Sigfox connectivity in a single device. The high-bandwidth 4G LTE connectivity is enabled via an embedded SIM (eSIM), replacing the physical SIM card.
This improves the manageability of devices on large transport fleets as the operators can easily provision network connections wirelessly without the need to replace physical SIM cards in their vehicles. Physical SIM cards also run the risk of being dislodged and damaged after prolonged usage.
This technological innovation is made possible with the partnership between Asia Mobiliti and its telecommunications network partners, Digi and Xperanti. “We’re pleased to have partnered with Asia Mobiliti on their pilot project, powering one of the first adoptions of eSIM in industrial IoT devices, such as Orion,” said Digi’s Chief Digital Officer Praveen Rajan.
“ESIM is indeed the next-gen connectivity enabler and is set to be a key growth driver for all types of IoT devices. There are many use cases of eSIM with clear merits in terms of scalability, convenience, and ultra-reliability among others. We look forward to supporting Asia Mobiliti in their smart mobility agen."

Orion’s Sigfox module that enables a low power wide area network (LPWAN) for asset tracking in non-powered states, including when vehicles are in workshops and service depots for long periods. Orion is able to report the vehicle’s location for periods beyond 12 months utilizing the battery-powered Sigfox module.
