The RockREMOTE Series
Customers select between Ethernet, Wi-Fi or Serial RS232/485 for their communications interface requirements. Both devices also support the new Iridium Messaging Transport (IMT) service.
Iridium Certus 100 Information
- Pole to pole coverage with no ‘line of sight’ challenges
- Leverages the L-Band frequency – stable and resilient, not susceptible to ‘rain fade’
- L-Band antennas are small and lightweight, ideal for portable and mobile use
- Omni-directional antennas with no moving parts
- IP data speeds of up to 88 Kbps, ideal for SCADA applications
- Lower latency and less signal attenuation than BGAN M2M
- Low power, small form factor equipment
- Easy to deploy with no satellite pointing required.
Benefits of Certus 100 Service
IP-Based for Easy Integration
It's easy to get going with the RockREMOTE device. It "takes the work out of the comms side for us which can be difficult between Arduino and Raspberry Pi equipment." The RockREMOTE offers dual-mode satellite and cellular airtime, too, so it's highly cost effective.
Satellites in Low Earth Orbit
Certus 100 utilizes Iridium’s low earth orbit (LEO) network, which provides pole-to-pole coverage, and has the benefit of lower latency (<1 second). Additionally, antennas do not have to be pointed to pick up Iridium satellites, which makes this service ideal for mountainous or wooded areas.
Supported by Industry Experts
Ground Control's support team are available to help you at any stage of your IoT connectivity project, from device and airtime selection through to installation, testing and lifetime support. No device leaves our premises without being thoroughly tested, and with the latest firmware installed.
Cost Effective and Flexible Airtime
We can offer great flexibility in our airtime plans, which saves you money. Rather than you paying for data you're not using, or incurring expensive overage fees, we tailor our plans to your usage. We have very competitive rates thanks to our long-standing relationship with Iridium.
Cloudloop Platform and Applications
The Cloudloop platform can be accessed online, or the data retrieved via our fully-featured API. It delivers subscription management, device management, network monitoring and tracking functionality. Cloudloop supports Iridium and Inmarsat airtime.
