Ingenu Inc., the pioneer in delivering connectivity exclusively to machines, has announced the availability of its Machine Network in Tampa Bay, Florida. The purpose-built IoT network serves a population of nearly 3 million and provides connectivity across the state’s third largest metropolitan area. The Machine Network will serve a diverse set of IoT applications, including environmental monitoring, logistics and transportation, as well as smart city and smart grid.
Ingenu’s patented RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology powers the Machine Network, which provides robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments. With just 16 RPMA access points, the Tampa Bay network serves over 2,500 square miles of area, with each access point covering an average of 159 square miles, thus utilizing considerably less infrastructure than other low-power, wide-area or cellular options.
“Tampa is the gateway to Florida’s High Tech Corridor, which provides the resources and innovation to create a variety of useful IoT applications,” said Tom Gregor, Ingenu’s president and general manager, Machine Network. “There are many opportunities for IoT solutions in the Tampa region and Ingenu’s Machine Network will power the development and connectivity of these solutions.”
Ingenu’s Machine Network build-out is now underway across the United States, and is targeted to serve 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.
