Ingenu Launches “Smarter City” Program for IoT Applications
Company’s RPMA network and best-in-class partner solutions provide turnkey solutions for smart city environments
Smart Cities Week, WASHINGTON – September 29, 2016 – Ingenu Inc.™, the pioneer in delivering connectivity exclusively to machines, today announced the launch of the Ingenu Smarter City program. The program features a turnkey, end-to-end smart city platform based on Ingenu’s patented RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology and innovations from Ingenu’s diverse partner ecosystem. The Smarter City program will provide access to municipal applications, delivering an all-in-one solution for the simplest deployment of smart parking, street lighting, water and electricity metering and management, proactive infrastructure management and environmental monitoring.
Ingenu has partnered with best-in-class solutions providers to support the Smarter City program infrastructure. Each company has extensive IoT industry expertise and offers a rich set of features to support the program. The initial partners include:
Libelium – Designers and manufacturers of hardware and software development kits for wireless sensor networks that enable integration of reliable IoT and Smart Cities devices with minimum time to market.
PTC – The PTC ThingWorx® platform is an enterprise-ready technology platform that enables innovators to rapidly develop and deploy smart, connected solutions for the IoT.
“The Smarter City program will offer governments and municipalities a simple, reliable and cost-effective IoT network based on RPMA, while immediately delivering functionality and services for a host of smart city applications,” said John Horn, CEO, Ingenu. “Ingenu has a history of success with smart city deployments and these partners will further enhance the capabilities that we can offer to the market.”
Through the Smarter City program, cities quickly gain access to turnkey solutions that commonly provide a double digit return on investment within the first year of deployment. Unlike other collaborative projects and groups, the Smarter City program delivers ready-to-deploy applications that are built to support long-term smart city growth initiatives.
The reach of the RPMA network is quickly growing as Ingenu continues its buildout of the Machine NetworkÔ in the U.S., and further expands its Global Licensing Strategy across the globe. Ingenu’s vast partner ecosystem also offers RPMA-enabled devices and software on the network to monitor and manage applications from agriculture to waste management.

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.
