Public machine-centric network to serve smart city, mining, energy and IoT applications
SAN DIEGO – October 11, 2016 – Ingenu Inc., the pioneer in delivering connectivity exclusively to machines, today announced the availability of its Machine Network™ in the Greater Salt Lake City area. With a coverage area of over 650 square miles, the network provides Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to Utah’s most populous metropolitan area, serving more than 99 percent of the population of over 1.6 million. The public machine-centric network will deliver connectivity to a variety of IoT applications, including smart city, smart grid, mining and others.
Ingenu’s patented RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology powers the Machine Network, which provides robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments. Although the topology of the Salt Lake City area is diverse, the range and capacity attributes of RPMA enable reliable coverage over the metro area, utilizing just nine access points.
“The greater Salt Lake area has become one of the hottest technology hubs in the country and we’re thrilled to bring RPMA technology to the area in support of its rapid growth,” said Tom Gregor, president and general manager of the Machine Network, Ingenu.
Ingenu’s Machine Network build-out is now underway across the United States, and is targeted to serve 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.

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.
