Precise positioning made easy

High-precision navigation applications are expanding more than ever before. Millions of IoT devices will expect precise positioning  solutions that are robust, scalable, and simple to use. ‘Making it easy’ means a silicon-to-cloud solution that uses an open data format and industry-standard MQTT and NTRIP protocols to make integration easy and cost effective, and an intuitive cloud interface that give you the autonomy to scale quickly and manage entire device fleets. Made simple by PointPerfect GNSS correction service, and natively supported by u-blox F9, an established performance leader in high precision GNSS multi-band RTK receivers.

Today’s high-precision GNSS receivers are multi-frequency, multi-constellation, utilize high-quality phase measurements, and are optimized for size and power consumption. The evolution of multi-GNSS RTK receivers is enabling a range of solutions for mass-market applications that take advantage of high precision positioning capabilities. Leading the way is the ZED-F9: a proven multi-band RTK receiver that covers all four satellite constellations, and delivers centimeter-level accuracy in a robust, energy-efficient package, all with u-blox technology at its core.

Adding PointPerfect PPP-RTK corrections with the RTK receiver, the combination work together as a precise positioning solution designed to be accessible and effortless to use. ZED-F9 offers native support for PointPerfect, simplifying integration so you can get started right away, go to market faster, and realize mass market scale.

With uniform coverage on a continental scale and 99.9% uptime availability via internet and L-band satellite, you can rely on F9 and PointPerfect for mission-critical applications. This bandwidth optimized solution reduces your data cost significantly, by using efficient SPARTN open data format and scalable, simple to integrate MQTT messaging protocol. NTRIP delivery is now also available for those applications requiring the NTRIP protocol. Contact us for more details.

PointPerfect’s Localized Distribution transmits significantly less data than continental streams, reducing the bandwidth by up to 70% to significantly drop user data costs.

And it is easy to use, with an intuitive cloud interface that gives you the autonomy to manage entire device fleets, monitor events, and have complete API control of functionality. Provisioning at scale is one of the major challenges in the deployment of large fleets of devices. Eliminate the difficulties of provisioning at manufacturing and the headaches of managing digital certificates. With Zero Touch Provisioning, devices on-board themselves automatically the first time they access PointPerfect, making large deployments simple to scale.

Typical RTK services are too expensive to be practical, that is why PointPerfect offers a range of flexible service pricing plans tailored to suit your specific use cases. Pay-as-you-go, subscription or hourly-based plans, by-device or pooled plan: all options designed to offer a better value for your current and future business needs.
