RockREMOTE Rugged

SKU: FP-RRR-9770

RockREMOTE Rugged is the waterproof, reliable solution to your remote IoT challenges, keeping your data flowing no matter what.

Securely connecting remote IoT assets using IP or message-based protocols, and providing diverse connectivity through Iridium Satellite or LTE networks, RockREMOTE is ideal for fixed or mobile environments anywhere in the world.


RockREMOTE for Harsh Environments

RockREMOTE Rugged is designed for permanent outdoor installation in harsh environments. Using Iridium’s truly global Certus 100 service and an omni-directional antenna, it is perfect for critical communication in remote and mobile situations.

With no requirement for antenna-pointing and a constellation of 66 rapidly moving satellites, RockREMOTE can reliably transfer your data even with a poor or changing view of the sky.

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


Iridium Messaging Transport (IMT) Compatible

Taking full advantage of IMT, the latest Iridium network service evolution, Ground Control has developed a Satellite IoT delivery network. It’s designed to deliver large message payloads for a wide range of IoT applications in a highly cost effective way.

It provides an end-to-end solution comprised of:

  1. An MQTT application deployed on the RockREMOTE terminal; this provides the interface for your remote application to submit and receive data payloads
  2. The Iridium IMT satellite service
  3. An MQTT server application, delivered via Ground Control’s Cloudloop platform, which enables your IoT service application to submit and receive data payloads.

The RockREMOTE is designed to connect your remote IoT assets using IP or message-based protocols. It uses LTE networks where available, and the Iridium satellite network when your device is out of cellular coverage.

The new rugged form factor is in response to customer feedback and will be available from February 2023 (the current form factor is available now). It's designed for permanent outdoor installation in harsh environments, whether fixed or mobile. If you'd like to know more, call or email us, or complete the form.
