Imagine a toll-free highway that travels straight around the world, oceans and all.
Who wouldn’t want to use it?
Imagine the savings commercial trucking lines would achieve! In the wireless world, an analogous highway exists: the 2.4 GHz frequency band.
RPMA’s designers strategically chose to use the 2.4 GHz frequency band not just because it is globally available and cost free. It also offers 80 MHz of bandwidth to work with and favorable regulations for those technologies using direct-sequence spread spectrum. But Ingenu isn’t the only organization that sees these features and has leveraged them for its wireless technology. Bluetooth, WiFi, cordless phones, and even baby monitors utilize the 2.4 GHz band. It’s no secret, then, that the 2.4 GHz band has some traffic on it. This was no surprise to the inventors of RPMA and has been dealt with on every level of the technology stack. But Ingenu also believes in being good neighbors and has designed RPMA to minimally affect fellow 2.4 GHz band users.
This white paper will describe how RPMA robustly operates in the 2.4 GHz band while minimally interfering with others in the same space.
