SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ingenu Inc.™, the pioneer in delivering connectivity exclusively to machines, today announced that it has been named to the FierceWireless “Fierce 15” for 2016. The award recognizes the most innovative startups in the industry across segments of the broad wireless market, from hardware manufacturers and software companies to telecom equipment vendors, technology developers and others.
Ingenu was selected as a Fierce 15 company as a result of the significant market traction it has made since re-branding the company from On-Ramp Wireless more than a year ago. It has enjoyed immense success, despite the highly competitive LPWAN market in which it operates. The attributes of the company’s patented technology, RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access), its prominent leadership team, and impressive customer deployments were also cited as factors in the selection process.
“We are honored to have been named to the Fierce 15 list for 2016 by one of the wireless industry’s most influential publications,” said John Horn, chief executive officer of Ingenu. “The team at Ingenu has put forth enormous effort over the past year to significantly expand the company’s worldwide prominence, and this prestigious accolade recognizes those efforts.”
Each company on the Fierce 15 is selected by the FierceWireless editors that track countless potential candidates over the course of the year, and ultimately choose the top 15 companies that have made the greatest impact on the wireless market. To qualify, a company must be privately held, well-funded, emerging, and have the potential to be a major player in the industry. Candidates must also be based in the U.S. or conduct a significant amount of business there, as that is where the majority of the FierceWireless readership operates.
Ingenu is building the first wireless Machine Network, the world’s largest IoT network dedicated to LPWA (low-power, wide-area) connectivity for machines only. Operating on universal spectrum, the company’s RPMA® technology is a proven standard for connecting Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices around the world, with 38 private networks deployed over seven years.
