The Cascade IoT Gateway is included as part of our Edge-as-a-Service solution and offers a powerful and cost-effective edge network for large-scale, low-power wireless deployments. It provides Enterprise IoT project and product teams with flexible edge computing power, a robust containerized application environment, and a wide variety of wireless device connectivity options, including Bluetooth 5, LTE, & Wi-Fi.

Intelligent Data Processing

Cascade is a fully-managed, enterprise-grade IoT gateway that utilizes the Rigado Edge Connect Platform to:

  • Collect, process, and deliver real-time Bluetooth sensor or monitoring device data to cloud (or on-premise) systems and applications – typically via MQTT or HTTPS.
  • Aggregate, filter, and pre-process data to minimize LTE bandwidth and cloud storage costs.
  • Collect performance monitoring metrics about the Gateways via a separate MQTT connection, which does not include customer data.

New applications can be deployed in the field as new use cases emerge. Rigado Edge Direct ensures reliability and security of the complete solution.




Enhanced Bluetooth Performance

Cascade gateways utilize 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.

Ready for Deployment

Cascade gateways make it easy to get to a reliable, production-ready pilot:

  • Cloud-ready: Securely deliver data to any cloud wired or wirelessly using MQTT or HTTP. Cascade gateways are Azure IoT Plug n’ Play Certified and AWS IoT Greengrass Certified, making it easy for IoT solutions teams to integrate and deploy with any application.
  • Flexible: As requirements change, so can the Cascade gateway. Adding and managing new devices, changing cloud data reporting intervals, even modifying gateway connectivity can be done remotely post-install, across an entire fleet.
  • Secure: Leveraging Ubuntu Core OS and a unique manufacturing and fulfillment process, every Cascade gateway is secured when it leaves the factory, ensuring data privacy and integrity once deployed.
