Introducing Ground Control to Rock Seven Customers

Welcome Rock Seven customers! Hopefully you’ll have seen our emails and social media posts about this change, but if not, don’t worry, you’re in the right place. In this blog post we’ll explain why we have a new name and website, and hopefully, get you as excited about our journey as we are.

In 2018, leading M2M communications provider Wireless Innovation purchased Rock Seven, and followed that up by purchasing Ground Control in 2019, whose Toughsat mobile satellite system is world-renowned, as is the auto-pointing, portable, satellite internet hotspot fondly known as “The Football”.

With best-in-class products and a huge amount of combined industry expertise, we knew that if we brought these together under one roof, we would be in a position to offer our global customers unrivalled technology, satellite and IoT services.

We also wanted to reconnect with our mission and purpose; nothing less than to provide customers with complete connectivity and control. Of our three brands, we felt Ground Control best reflected this ambition, and so Rock Seven Mobile Services Ltd is now trading as Ground Control.

Finally, we took the opportunity to explore and better express our values.

You can read more about what these mean in our About Us section.

Our new site has all of the Rock Seven products you’re familiar with; you can search by the product code or name using the search feature at the top right of the site, or access them through the Products navigation dropdown. You’ll also find Wireless Innovation and Ground Control products too.

If you’re not sure of the best combination of products and services for your needs, get in touch! We have offices in both the USA and UK, so there’ll usually be someone available to speak to, whatever the hour.

The legal entity is still Rock Seven Mobile Services Ltd, so the company number, VAT number, bank details etc. all still remain the same; invoices and contracts will be rebranded Rock Seven Mobile Services Ltd t/a Ground Control but all terms and conditions remain the same. Our previous telephone numbers and email addresses also still work, but you’ll predominantly hear from us using the Ground Control name going forwards.

Please let us know what you think of the new site and branding; we continue to work hard to enhance our customers’ experience, and your feedback is incredibly valuable in this respect.

And thank you for being a Rock Seven / Ground Control customer!
