Ingenu to roll out IoT connectivity to 30 US cities by 2017

Ingenu has announced the initial rollout of its Machine Network that will rise in Phoenix and cover 30 US cities by the end of 2016.

In the first phase it will target the Southwestern metropolitan areas of Arizona and Texas. The network in Phoenix in Arizona will serve around 3.1 million consumers of M2M technology and covers 1,800 square miles. In the metropolitan areas of Dallas and Fort Worth in Texas it will connect approximately 4.5 million consumers across an area of over 2,000 square miles.

Eventually, the Ingenu-built Machine Network will, it claims, be the nation’s largest exclusive IoT and M2M network, serving 100 million users across an area of the United States comprising nearly 100,000 square miles.

Ingenu’s Machine Network will be the first dedicated to IoT/M2M connectivity, it claims. It will be powered by the company’s Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) technology, which runs on 38 private networks across the globe. The Machine Network is to use RPMA as a public network connectivity option however.

The rollout of the Machine Network will continue through 2016 as it expands from its South West USA beginnings to provide two-way communications at over 600 national sites.

There is a prevalence of IoT applications already operating in Phoenix and Texas as a result of the presence of oil and gas fields and pipelines, and the associated transport and industrial monitoring that goes with these heavy industries in a wide geographical area, said Tom Gregor, Ingenu’s general manager for public networks.

“The Machine Network provides an ideal alternative to devices and applications that are currently connected via 2G cellular networks,” he said.

These will be ‘refarmed’ in the coming months to make way for higher bandwidth cellular technologies, said Gregor.

“Ingenu’s RPMA network is ready for virtually any M2M application,” said John Horn, Ingenu’s CEO, “we anticipate that developers and technology partners alike will take advantage of all the benefits that the technology offers such as unprecedented coverage, greater capacity and system longevity.”
