Ingenu Inc.™, the pioneer in delivering connectivity exclusively to machines, today announced availability of its Machine Network™ in Phoenix. With a coverage area of more than 1,850 square miles, the network provides Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to the sixth-largest city in the United States, serving a population of over 3.1 million.
Ingenu’s Machine Network is powered by the company’s patented RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology, which provides robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments. While the topology of Phoenix is vast, the urban and remote areas are served by only 10 RPMA access points, which is significantly less infrastructure than would be required with comparable cellular coverage.
“Adding this type of smart city technology is a real advantage for our economy,” said Greg Stanton, Mayor of Phoenix. “Private networks and machine-to-machine connectivity will help Phoenix, and other cities working to become more sustainable to find new efficiencies and cost savings.”
“Ingenu is laying the groundwork for development of smart applications and devices to serve the needs of the Phoenix metropolitan area,” said Tom Gregor, Ingenu’s president and GM, Machine Network. “The company’s proven expertise in delivering smart city solutions and the immediate availability of Machine Network connectivity in the area will support the city’s IoT initiatives for many years to come.”
The Machine Network build-out is now underway across the United States, and will serve more than 30 major metropolitan areas by the end of 2016. The Machine Network currently provides more than 100,000 square miles of wireless coverage for a host of IoT applications.
