PointPerfect offers verified GNSS correction data for several GNSS constellations and all large-scale environmental effects that impact GNSS signals to deliver an augmentation service that can be trusted. The service is available via our easy-to-use Thingstream IoT service delivery platform, which eliminates complexities and allows users to engage more efficiently, reducing time to market. This combination lowers barriers to adoption and supports scaled-up high precision positioning solutions, even in segments where such solutions would previously have been considered impractical.

Reduced transmission costs with the SPARTN data format
Modern positioning systems require a combination of low bandwidth, high accuracy, availability, reliability, and integrity of communication between service providers and end users. The SPARTN format is an industry-driven messaging standard designed to meet these requirements. SPARTN is an evolution that combines the advantages of the state representation with modernized communication protocol fundamentals, resulting in a bandwidth-optimized solution that reduces transmitting costs for end users.
Highly efficient message delivery via MQTT
The highly reliable, lightweight MQTT protocol is vastly more efficient than HTTP when transmitting many messages on a single connection. Lower overhead and simplified messaging transport mean less data and lower transmission cost. MQTT protocol is scalable: it is as easy to broadcast a message to a million devices as it is to send to just one. Because MQTT clients are embedded in many connectivity products, there is no need to integrate a dedicated or proprietary client, which is a common requirement when the NTRIP protocol is used to stream GNSS correction data.
Frictionless for your business
PointPerfect is delivered through Thingstream IoT service delivery platform, a cloud-based delivery platform and administration interface for enterprise IoT services. Pressure tested and proven to support the delivery of 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.
In addition to a traditional subscription-based approach, we offer flexible, "pay as you go" service plans tuned to address various customers, use cases, and applications. Thingstream enables a frictionless business experience, eliminating complexities and allowing users to engage more efficiently and reduce time to market. The combination serves as an inflection point in the market evolution of high precision GNSS solutions.
Homogeneous and continental coverage
PointPerfect is available with seamless coverage across the contiguous USA, Canada, Europe, South Korea, and Australia regions, including up to 12 nautical miles (22 kilometers) off coastlines. The reference network is being continuously expanded in response to market demand.
99.9% assured availability
Delivered redundantly via both mobile internet and satellite L-band communication, PointPerfect offers 99.9% uptime availability, backed by a warranty and expert support.
PointPerfect integrates seamlessly into u-blox’s comprehensive silicon-to-cloud set of solutions and offerings. These include industry-leading, high precision, multi-band GNSS receiver modules, connectivity hardware, and advanced GNSS augmentation services. All technology building blocks are sourced in house, giving us full span of control without the external dependencies that can be barriers to responsiveness or call longevity into question.
Because PointPerfect is based on open SPARTN format, its use is not restricted to a single hardware manufacturer. In this way, customers have the flexibility to make hardware and services selections that optimize overall return on investment.
