The first nationwide network for machines is now available in Virginia.

The entire Richmond metropolitan area is now covered by the Machine Network™. Purpose-built for supporting M2M/IoT applications, the Machine Network brings wireless data connectivity exclusively to Machines. Powered by Ingenu’s RPMA® technology, the Machine Network is the first such public network dedicated entirely to connecting the Internet of Things.

The Machine Network enables devices, sensors, and machines to communicate with great efficiency, over great distances, more reliably than any other wireless technology. With the deployment of RPMA in Richmond, municipalities, government agencies and businesses are able to tap into its always-available, ubiquitous coverage to build IoT solutions.

The Machine Network is rapidly being deployed across the country. To find out when the network is coming to your area, check out our nationwide coverage map.



Data Sheet for the Machine Network in Richmond

Bringing the Internet of Things


Ingenu’s Machine Network is powered by the company’s patented RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology, which provides robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments.  In its entirety, Richmond and its surrounding area is served by eleven RPMA access points, which is significantly less infrastructure than would be required with comparable cellular coverage.


English settlers named Jamestown their capital in 1607. They then moved it to Williamsburg in 1699 after a fire destroyed the Jamestown Statehouse. Finally in 1780, the capital was moved to Richmond, where it now resides. At the time, it was thought that Richmond was better equipped to withstand attack from British Forces. Regardless, Richmond has long been a hub for trade and commerce in the region, now home to some of the most successful businesses in the nation.


Every good success story starts with an idea. Putting pen to paper is one thing; prototyping, manufacturing and launching a killer app takes real grit and determination. With the Machine Network, Ingenu aims to make your IoT experience simple. Whether you’re working solo out of a garage or working for a multinational corporation, getting started with the Internet of Things has never been easier.

RPMA Machine Network Case Studies

The Machine Network

Brings IoT
to Richmond

The Internet of Things (IoT) is supposed to have billions of devices connected that will bring greater efficiencies and savings. But how exactly is that done? The IoT requires well placed sensors that transmit information wirelessly back to the cloud or other storage medium. That information is either used live for things like monitoring or control or is analyzed later to optimize and automate processes. In this document, we will show you ways in which this vision has already been achieved around the globe using Ingenu’s wireless technology, RPMA.

The IoT requires wireless technology to connect devices that collect information. Ingenu is a wireless connectivity provider dedicated exclusively to machine connectivity. Ingenu’s Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) technology provides wireless connectivity to devices allowing them to communicate back to their owners. RPMA has connected smart devices for years. RPMA is a thoroughly proven technology enabling dozens of private networks including verticals such as the smart city, smart grid, asset tracking, and oil and gas since 2008.

In this collection of case studies, we’ll explore ways in which RPMA has brought value to citizens, cities, governments, businesses and enterprises. While some of these case studies are specific to a particular vertical, many may be generalized across other industries. The value of the IoT is real today, and RPMA makes that value real.
