RockREMOTE for Harsh Environments

Equipped with a range of physical serial, digital and LAN connectivity options, RockREMOTE Rugged is designed to enable connectivity of a wide range of measuring and monitoring sensor devices. Using Iridium’s truly global Certus 100 service and an omni-directional antenna, it’s perfect for critical communication in remote and mobile situations.

With no requirement for antenna-pointing and a constellation of 66 rapidly moving satellites, RockREMOTE Rugged can reliably transfer your data in close to real time, even with a poor or changing view of the sky. It’s intended for permanent outdoor installation in harsh environments.

The powerful Linux-based operating system offers containerized hosting for edge-computing applications. Comprehensive remote management (including diagnostics and firmware updates) is provided by Cloudloop.

RockREMOTE Rugged Use Cases

  • Used in data buoys and USVs to increase the amount of sensor data transmitted
  • Remote camera traps to transmit images of potential poachers in real-time
  • To monitor and manage heavy machinery in agriculture, construction and mining
  • To transmit SCADA system data from remote utilities and renewables sites
  • Pipeline monitoring for safety, leak detection, and to reduce unplanned maintenance costs
  • Monitoring and managing valuable remote assets such as mobile generators
