New developments in IoT for Hospitality promise to improve guest and employee experiences, as well as enable new use-cases for operational efficiency and employee safety. In environments ranging from restaurants & hotels to music venues & casinos, companies are looking to delight guests and streamline operations.
However, deploying a secure edge infrastructure to support the wide range of sensors, devices and applications required to serve both front-of-house and back-of-house applications can often be complicated.
That’s where Rigado comes in.
We provide edge infrastructure for connected hospitality solutions.
Build your Connected Hospitality solution on Rigado’s Cascade Edge-as-a-Service platform and create a secure data pipeline to your cloud.
|Example Sensors Types:||Typical Edge Applications:|
|Presence Sensor||Guest & Employee Presence & Optimization|
|Maintenance Sensor||Supply & Clean-up Notification|
|Comfort Sensor||Building Controls Integration|
|Table Location Sensor||Table Delivery Service|
Radius Networks is a location technology company, with a mission to improve the guest and employee experience, increase order throughput, and streamline service and delivery options for hospitality clients.Their Customer Location Platform provides proximity-as-a-service to over 30,000 locations across 60 countries.
Radius needed a secure and reliable edge gateway solution to power their table delivery service solution for quick serve restaurants. The gateways needed to be high-performance, cost-effective and efficient to install – enabling them roll-out to restaurants around the globe.
Radius chose Rigado gateways for their restaurant solution edge infrastructure, leveraging Rigado’s high- performance Bluetooth gateways for their BLE-based location service. Customers can order from a kiosk or their phone, and have their food delivered right to their table.
The Radius table service solution, powered by Rigado gateways, has been successfully deployed to over 30,000 locations across the globe. Their customers report significant increases in customer satisfaction and spending as a result.

Reliable and secure edge connectivity is often challenging – and expensive – for building technology solution providers and systems integrators to design, develop and deploy. Integrating a secure, low-power wireless (e.g. BLE) solution into an existing building system can be complex and often requires a custom architecture. Additionally, creating an IoT solution from scratch is both time and resource-intensive and often requires substantial up-front capital, unnecessarily lengthening time to ROI.
For these reasons, Connected Hospitality solution providers choose to partner with Rigado, leveraging our Cascade infrastructure as the foundation of their edge connectivity and computing.
Watch our product overview video to see how Cascade Edge-as-a-Service provides System Integrators and Solution Providers with secure edge computing, a containerized application environment, scalable management tools and a variety of connectivity options.
All in a simple ‘Edge-as-a-Service’ monthly subscription.
Our Cascade Edge-as-a-Service offering provides all the elements required for a secure and scalable edge infrastructure for Connected Hospitality solutions, including:
Flexible IoT Connectivity – wide range of options for both building end-devices (Bluetooth, Thread, Zigbee) and upstream cloud data connections (Ethernet with PoE, Wi-Fi, LTE).
Edge Computing – Our gateways run Ubuntu Core for simple container management and the ability to easily deploy, run and update multiple smart office applications on a single gateway.
Simple monitoring and management – Monitor connectivity and performance of your gateways, and easily deploy edge application updates via our cloud interface, or use the included API with your DevOps tools.
Security at Scale – Certified security that starts at the point of manufacturing and extends to in-the-field patches as new threats and exploits emerge, keeping building facilities secure.
Cascade combines flexible connectivity and edge computing to bring key benefits to our partners building commercial IoT solutions:
