High accuracy and fast convergence

PointPerfect is a PPP-RTK GNSS correction data service that delivers 3-6 centimeter¹ positioning accuracy with a convergence of just seconds.

The service answers the fast-growing demand for precise positioning GNSS solutions including autonomous machines such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), service robots, machinery automation, micro-mobility, and other advanced navigation applications. Emerging automotive applications include lane-accurate navigation and telematics.

Easy to use. Seamless integration

PointPerfect is ready to use because it is already pre-integrated with u-blox F9 and D9 high precision GNSS modules. Our industry-leading high precision multi-band GNSS receiver modules and connectivity hardware can now work seamlessly in combination with our PPP-RTK GNSS correction services to provide a one-stop-shop solution from silicon-to-cloud. Non-native SPARTN receivers are supported by the PointPerfect SDK.

You asked. We answered: PointPerfect is now delivered using NTRIP protocol for those applications that require NTRIP. Find out more about delivery via NTRIP.

Lower bandwidth to reduce user data costs

PointPerfect adopts the industry-driven SPARTN data format. SPARTN enables the highly efficient transfer of GNSS correction data. It is transparent, and open to any integration partner. This, combined with the lightweight, scalable, and simple to integrate MQTT protocol, results in a real-time, bandwidth-optimized solution that reduces user data costs and is ideally suited for mass-market applications.

Mobile data costs

PointPerfect’s Localized Distribution transmits 70% less data than the continental streams, to significantly reducing user data costs. With the localized approach, a device subscribes to the localized node topic based on its location. The data transmitted through each node is optimized based on that location, filtering out unnecessary data that is not relevant to the user, which greatly reduces the required bandwidth. As with the continental stream, the location of the rover is not needed to use the localized distribution stream, ensuring privacy and security. 

Continental coverage. High reliability, availability

PointPerfect is delivered via mobile internet or L-band satellite signals to any number of end-devices. The broadcast provides uniform coverage on a continental scale, including up to 12 nautical miles (roughly 22 kilometers) off coastlines. With 99.9% uptime availability, you can rely on PointPerfect 24/7 for your most critical applications. The service is backed by our full warranty and expert support team.

Intuitive platform and flexible price plans

PointPerfect is delivered via our enterprise-grade cloud platform, utilizes auto-scaling technology, and is proven to support billions of messages. The intuitive interface provides a self-serve environment from which users have autonomy to manage IoT device fleets, manage billing, monitor events, and have complete API control of functionality. 

Without an automated mechanism, the provisioning process involves installing the device credentials at manufacturing. This process is tedious and can slow down the production line, increasing manufacturing costs. Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) makes it easy to deploy huge device fleets, eliminating the headaches of managing digital certificates. ZTP enables devices to provision themselves automatically in the field, the first time they access PointPerfect.

In addition to a traditional subscription-based approach, we offer flexible pay-as-you-go service plans to address various customers, use cases, and applications. PointPerfect eliminates complexities and allows users to engage more efficiently and reduce time-to-market.
