Sonim Rugged Performance Standards (RPS)

A Higher, More Rigorous Set Of Standards

When Sonim set out to build Sonim 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, the Sonim Rugged Performance Standards (RPS) consist of 12 benchmarks of endurance and durability.

Why? Because 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. Sonim RPS. Sonim set the standard that all rugged devices must live up to.
