SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ingenu Inc.™, the company that delivers purpose-built IoT connectivity, today announced the launch of the New Orleans Machine Network™, adding another market in the Southern US to its national coverage map for machine connectivity. In addition to smart city applications, the New Orleans network will support oil & gas, logistics and transportation applications, which are leading industries in the region utilizing IoT (Internet of Things) technology.
The New Orleans metropolitan area supports a thriving shipping and logistics industry, which is a major driver in emerging industrial IoT applications. The oil and gas industry is also taking advantage of the technology for monitoring and pipeline usage analysis. The New Orleans Machine Network will provide coverage to the state’s largest metropolitan area, reaching 240 square miles and serving a population of nearly one million.
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. 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.

“The Southern US is an important region for the Machine Network as it is where most of the country’s goods are manufactured, transported and delivered,” said Tom Gregor, president and general manager, Machine Network, Ingenu. “We are excited to bring the power of RPMA connectivity to the New Orleans metro area to further enhance the capabilities this thriving industrial market has to offer.”
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.
