Delivered via mobile internet or L-band satellite signals, PointPerfect broadcasts on a continental scale with homogeneous coverage in Europe and the contiguous USA, including up to 12 nautical miles (roughly 22 kilometres) off coastlines to any number of end-devices, delivering sub-10-centimetre positioning accuracy and convergence of just seconds. Furthermore, the SPARTN messaging format combined with the lightweight and secure MQTT IoT delivery protocol results in a real-time, bandwidth-optimised, cost-efficient solution ideally suited for mass-market applications. 

Seamless integration and easy to use

PointPerfect cooperates smoothly with u-blox’s positioning and connectivity hardware. Because it is based on the open SPARTN GNSS correction data format, its use is not restricted to a single hardware provider, allowing customers the flexibility to optimise solutions. 

PointPerfect is delivered via the intuitive Thingstream IoT service delivery platform, a cloud platform that supports billions of messages. Thingstream provides a self-serve environment where users can manage their device fleet, optimising cost and performance through flexible and predictable pricing plans. The service is backed by a full warranty, 99.9% uptime availability and 24×7 reliability. Expert technical support is offered while eliminating any external dependencies that could otherwise lead to delays. 

“Designed for increased flexibility, PointPerfect lowers barriers to adoption and supports scaled-up high precision positioning solutions, even in segments where such solutions would previously have been considered impractical. Moreover, innovative delivery options fully integrated into our easy-to-use Thingstream IoT service delivery platform eliminate complexities and allow users to engage more efficiently, reducing time-to-market,” says Franco de Lorenzo, Principal Product Manager Services, u-blox.
