Purpose-built IoT network to enable access to a host of applications for smart energy, agriculture and other sustainability solutions
SAN DIEGO – August 10, 2016 – 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. Although 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.

Ingenu will be collaborating with the developer community in the Phoenix area through its sponsorship of Phoenix Mobile and IoT Festival 2016, taking place September 24, 2016. For detailed information on the event, visit www.meetup.com/phxmobi/events/233021842/.
Utilizing globally available spectrum, Ingenu’s RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) technology is purpose-built for M2M/IoT connectivity, offering unparalleled range, coverage and capacity with extremely low power requirements and longer-lasting battery life. It uniquely enables devices to connect more efficiently and cost-effectively in both the uplink and downlink. Requiring fewer towers to provide coverage to large areas (1:10 to 1:30 radio towers needed for RPMA vs. cellular), RPMA is rapidly becoming a global standard for IoT communication.
