Infographic: How to Expand Your IoT Application with the RockREMOTE Rugged

Only a small fraction of the Earth’s surface is covered by traditional networks, estimated to be around 15-20%. These networks primarily cater to populated areas where cell towers are abundant. If your IoT application is located in or near a populated region, you have various options like cellular, LPWAN, WiFi, BLE, and more to connect your devices.

However, when your application operates in remote areas or moves in and out of such locations, terrestrial networks may not be available or reliable. This limitation often affects industries such as oil and gas pipelines, farms, mining operations, offshore activities, sea-based installations, reservoirs, solar plants, forestry, and many others.

Satellite IoT connectivity, once considered a last resort due to its high cost, has undergone significant advancements. The market has seen the emergence of numerous new players, leading to diversified offerings and reduced prices from established providers. One notable example is the Iridium Certus 100 service, specifically designed for IoT applications. The RockREMOTE Rugged satellite IoT device utilizes this service, offering both IP-based connectivity and Iridium Messaging Transport (IMT). IMT enables the transmission of relatively large amounts of data (for IoT purposes) using the MQTT protocol.

Our infographic highlights the key advantages of the new RockREMOTE Rugged device. If you would like more information, feel free to reach out to us, and we’ll be glad to assist you.
