Back in Part One of my blog series, I set an Arduino Yún to take readings from a DHT11 temperature + humidity sensor and shared the Arduino sketch I threw together to make it all work. First thing’s first, I knew I would have to configure the RPMA DevKit board to receive/transmit serial transmissions and forward those on to Intellect. The files & scripts included in the Starter Pack downloadable make this a pretty easy process.
RCR Wireless – August 19, 2016 – As the internet of things (IoT) continues to evolve, a wealth of connectivity options—utilizing a variety of different spectrum options—are emerging. The 2.4 GHz band—also called unlicensed spectrum—has thrown its hat into the ring as a legitimate option. There are three key reasons 2.4 GHz has a rightful place as an IoT connectivity contender.

RCR Wireless – August 19, 2016 – Low-power, wide-area networks (LPWAN) are the response to the need for reliable, efficient, easy to deploy connectivity to help unlock the potential of the internet of things. According to Ingenu, which licenses RPMA, 86% of all current IoT devices use less than 3 MB of data per month, so the need for a network that can sustain devices with such low requirements is necessary to sustain the billions of anticipated IoT devices.

Smart Cities World – August 18, 2016 – Ingenu has expanded its machine network footprint to Austin, San Antonio and Houston in the state of Texas. According to the company, which self-proclaims that it is “dedicated to connecting machines”, the addition of these markets to the previously announced Dallas-Fort Worth area network will provide Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to more than half the Texas state population.

Internet of Things Institute – August 18, 2016 – San Diego-based Ingenu is busily expanding its machine network across the United States. In this interview with Landon Garner, the company’s Chief Marketing Officer sheds light on the company’s roots and its plan. Read more>>
Over the past several years, wireless and telecom businesses have looked forward to CTIA as the sign that summer is officially over and business is back in full swing. This year, CTIA 2016 will in many ways give its last independent hurrah before moving its tent from Las Vegas to San Francisco in 2017, with the help of the GSMA.
Announced several weeks ago, CTIA will be joining forces in 2017 and beyond with the GSMA to form a new event named “GSMA Mobile World Congress Americas, in partnership with CTIA”. Reportedly, both organizations will have an equal part to play.
It seems that the aim of this newly formed alliance will be to bring the type of scale and visibility to the wireless industry that events like Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress tend to do in early spring each year. The last Mobile World Congress event held in Barcelona is said to have attracted more than 100,000 guests.; whereas, CTIA 2016 is expected to see less than half of that total.
While this isn’t the first merger involving CTIA in the last few years, this one does seem to have a clearer path to an eventual eclipse, and ultimate dismissal, of the CTIA namesake.
IoT Evolution Expo – August 17, 2016 – In this IoT Evolution Keynote, John Horn, CEO, Ingenu, asked attendees: When considering wireless solutions, are their alternatives to LTE? Understanding the total cost of a service is more than the wireless modules. The ability to deploy once and maintain battery life without additional truck rolls is a key value of Ingenu RPMA solutions. Link to video
