Wirepas and Rigado offer a unique, configurable IoT gateway solution for wide area mesh

Wirepas has partnered with US-based Rigado, who offers a ready-to-run Gateway for Wirepas Connectivity. Rigado’s configurable IoT Gateway allows customers to customize a gateway solution with the exact wireless protocols, edge compute and connectivity options their use case requires. The Rigado gateway options include low power wireless routing and packet forwarding to the cloud as well as onboard processing capabilities.  Utilizing the local storage and Linux-based edge applications – with built-in support for many popular cloud services – customers can quickly adapt the software on the gateway for their own IoT application.

  • Large-scale industrial and commercial IoT applications are gaining significant momentum, especially in terms of connected devices. As companies begin adopting scalable mesh networking for smart lighting, asset tracking, and more, it is truly exciting to be able to offer Wirepas Connectivity on our IoT Gateway, extending the possibilities and reach of Rigado’s low-power wireless solutions, Ben Corrado, CEO of Rigado says.

Rigado IoT Gateway

Wirepas and Rigado are focused on industrial and commercial scale Smart Lighting and Asset Management applications where flexible connectivity requirements are paramount. Together, the Wirepas wide area mesh connectivity and Rigado’s customizable Gateway are able to meet the scale and reliability demands of Industrial IoT deployments.



  • Rigado is a very important addition to our growing ecosystem. IoT, even industrial IoT, is a combination of many different use cases with totally different requirements for connectivity. That is exactly why a customizable gateway makes perfect sense. For our partners and customers, Rigado’s IoT Gateway enables an easy-to-deploy solution, Wirepas CEO, Teppo Hemiä says.

Rigado’s IoT Gateway includes a robust development environment to make creating and deploying applications easy. Gateways are pre-loaded with Node-RED, and developers can also deploy node.js, python, Java, or compiled applications.  Using the Rigado cloud based software deployment tool, DeviceOps, and the Wirepas mesh management platform, customers can manage their system deployments remotely.

Rigado offers multiple branding and enclosure options depending on the application. Gateways can be customized with customer’s own brand identity in the standard indoor and waterproof IP67 rated enclosures – or built into custom enclosures.
