Company Attains 200 Percent Annual Growth Driven by Ground-Breaking, Low-Power, Long-Range RPMA Network Technology
SAN DIEGO – April 14, 2015 – On-Ramp Wireless, the leading provider of long-range connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced several key 2014 milestones in the adoption of low-power, wide-area communications. Driven by critical infrastructure applications such as smart grid, intelligent lighting, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and oil and gas automation, the company’s customers and partners substantially accelerated network deployments — reaching 30 deployed networks in 2014, a 200 percent increase over year-end 2013.
Deployments of the On-Ramp Wireless RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) network are driven by the need for a cost-effective solution which provides reliable, secure, two-way connections for sensors and devices in the most demanding environments. RPMA serves as an alternative to existing cellular, Wi-Fi and mesh networks that lack the coverage, cost-effectiveness or low-power capabilities required by the exploding number of smart sensors and machines that need to be connected.
In addition to increasing global network deployments in 2014, the Connected by RPMA ecosystem expanded dramatically throughout the year. Highlights included announced application integration activities from EDMI, Energate and Meterlinq — adding to the wide range of applications available immediately for deployment on RPMA Networks.
“The year 2014 was critical for low-power, wide-area networking as the industry has begun to realize that enabling the promise of the Internet of Things will require new wireless technologies such as On-Ramp’s RPMA network to connect the billions of smart devices expected online over the coming years — particularly in major industrial sectors,” said Kevin Hell, President and Chief Executive Officer, On-Ramp Wireless. “Our customers and partners have proven the value of low-cost, reliable connectivity with breakthrough coverage and capacity — deploying systems that will provide the foundation for future IoT applications.”
On-Ramp Wireless has grown its presence internationally to support these growing deployments, adding sales and support resources for Latin America, South Africa and Japan in 2014.
