WIDER RELIABLE COVERAGE

IoT connectivity that works the whole world over, and where you are.

Where you need it, when you need it.

Reliable coverage means your devices are covered where the network says they are, and the messages are acknowledged each time, not just a fraction of the time. Either the coverage is there, or it isn’t. This should be obvious, but not every LPWA technology plays by these rules.

Random Phase Multiple Access, or RPMA®’s reliable coverage stems from the combination of its 100% message acknowledgement with its best-in-class coverage per access point. What happens when you try to serve only one of these two essential features? Reliable message transmission without good coverage is a local area network. Wide coverage area without reliable message transmission gets you a “network” that expects its devices to operate on a wish and a prayer that the data will make it to the end user, at some point, maybe. Phrases like, “at some point, maybe” are hardly the foundation of a solid business for application developers, and thus for the network operators.

Other rules that coverage reliability plays by are the terrain a network is deployed in. Open spaces without obstructions like deserts and many rural areas are easy to cover large swathes of land. This is why some of our access points in Texas oil fields that our partner WellAware serves have 450 square miles of coverage a piece.

But urban areas with tall buildings, trees, and homes are more challenging for radio waves to travel through, so more access points are required for any network coverage provider. Even so, our coverage per access point (AP) is phenomenal.

When rolling out the Machine Network in Dallas/Ft. Worth, it took us only 17 towers to cover 2,000 square miles of both metropolitan areas.

With this kind of wide, reliable coverage it’s easy to see how it will only take Ingenu a small fraction of what it will take others to cover the US.

More than just range. Reliable.

Early in 2016, the power supply to one of our access points near Santiago, Chile was cut off when a nearby retaining wall gave way due to an adjacent construction site. Telephone pole leaning, our AP automatically switched over to backup battery power and continued to serve the electric meters that were connected to it. Once the backup power failed, the meters automatically connected to new access points. A few of those meters connected to an AP that was 48 KM away (30 miles)! That’s reliable coverage.

Global Coverage.

Not only does RPMA have the best coverage per access point, we are building out coverage worldwide because we utilize the 2.4 GHz band which is available everywhere in the world. So when you travel from Australia to the USA, your luggage tracker app can keep up even when your luggage goes to the UAE instead.
