Know your gear

Get affordable communications and asset information from the field. A family of Rocket mobile communications appliances provides utility and first responder vehicles with fast and secure broadband Internet, and WiFi host connectivity. More than just a rugged WiFi hot spot, the broadband appliance is a universal communications platform for a vehicle, leveraging one cellular data plan for all vehicle information communications needs.

Utility understands the operational, safety, service, regulatory and financial challenges that arise from managing field-force workers and mobile assets. Thousands of Rocket broadband communications appliances are being used by large and small first responders and utilities to support mission-critical business operations every day.

The Rocket's internal SirfSTAR III 20-channel GPS chipset provides very accurate location reporting, even under tree canopies and in Manhattan urban canyons. In addition, the Rocket multicasts GPS data over the WiFi host connection to provide real-time location data to any WiFi-enabled device in or around the vehicle. The Rocket is hard-wired to vehicle power. The vehicle driver does not have to remember to boot up the laptop, logon, or start-up and manage a cellular data connection. The Rocket is an always-on WiFi hotspot and reports location, engine operating data, and reads active WiFi RFID badges and asset tags whenever the vehicle is operating, and for a set time after the vehicle is turned off with the power timer in the Rocket Locker. In contrast to a laptop, field crews in the vehicle cannot turn it off.

Mobile appliances have to withstand the hard knocks and harsh conditions in the field. Flimsy plastic, office-based communications gear with a narrow temperature operating range and a DC converter won't work reliably in a vehicle. The solid-state MIL-STD-810F certified appliance provides reliable communications in all field operating environments - from the first call to the last.
