Sonim RPS – Rugged Performance Standards

31/03/2021 Off By Andy Ptyushkin


In mission-critical situations, communication failure is not an option. So every Sonim device is designed and built to meet the most punishing, demanding, exacting standards in the industry. Thanks to RPS, Sonim sets the standard that all rugged devices must live up to.

When Sonim set out to build phones, there were no standards for ultra-rugged mobile devices – so they created them. Based on over ten years of feedback from customer usage in the world’s most extreme environments, Sonim Rugged Performance Standards (RPS) consist of 12 benchmarks of endurance and durability.
