Ingenu Announces Machine Network Availability in Jacksonville, Florida
Latest network deployment to connect industrial IoT applications for logistics, transportation and manufacturing
SAN DIEGO – November 2, 2016 – Ingenu Inc.™, the company that delivers purpose-built IoT connectivity, today announced the availability of its Machine Network™ in the greater Jacksonville area. The latest in the company’s nationwide network expansion, the Jacksonville Machine Network will support the region’s IoT (Internet of Things) applications for logistics, transportation and manufacturing, among others. Jacksonville follows the recent network deployment in Tampa Bay, with continued expansion in Florida throughout 2016/2017.
Jacksonville is home to one of the nation’s busiest transportation hubs, ranking in the top two for vehicle handling. Logistics and manufacturing are also important industries to the region and are well positioned to utilize IoT applications to increase productivity and enhance operational efficiencies.
“As the Machine Network continues to grow, its robust, reliable and powerful connectivity is spurring the development of state-of-the-art IoT solutions,” said Tom Gregor, president and general manager, Machine Network at Ingenu. “We are seeing an increased focus on telematics, connected car and transportation applications, and the Jacksonville region is ideally positioned to serve those innovative industries.”
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. The range and capacity attributes of RPMA enable reliable coverage across diverse topologies, and as such, the Jacksonville Machine Network will cover an area of more than 1,000 square miles, and will serve a population of nearly one million, utilizing only eight access points.
The nationwide 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.
