Say Goodbye to Raspberry Pi

Cascade Bluetooth gateways are cloud-managed & easy to install with built-in security that scales

Features and Specs

IT-Friendly Connectivity for Every Enterprise Application

  • Rigado Cascade can be deployed in a variety of settings and fully configured and monitored from Edge Direct.
  • Data collection frequency, sensor behavior, and security policies are easy to modify on the fly.

Ethernet Power & Data

WiFi & Cellular Backhaul Options

BLE and Wirepas Mesh

Your Data, Your Destination

  • Collect, process, and deliver real-time Bluetooth sensor data via MQTT or HTTPS.
  • Aggregate, filter, and pre-process data to minimize LTE bandwidth and cloud storage costs.
  • Send data to multiple endpoints from a variety of sensor devices concurrently
  • Add new devices and modify behavior using Rigado Edge Direct.

Enhanced Bluetooth Performance

We combine the Nordic nRF52840 SoC and include a Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) and Power Amplifier (PA) to maximize range in any environment – achieving 2-4 times the range of a typical BLE collector. A single Cascade gateway can manage hundreds or even thousands of Bluetooth end devices.

That means increased signal reliability compared to typical IoT gateways and better and more consistent coverage with fewer gateways, minimizing development and deployment time and cost.
