Ingenu has announced the availability of its Machine Network to the greater San Diego metropolitan area in the US.


The Internet of Things (IoT) network, which is powered by Ingenu’s Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) technology, will drive applications related to municipal sustainability and clean energy. The network covers more than 800 square miles and covers a population of over 2.6 million people.


San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the US and has been recognised for its Climate Action Plan, enabling sustainability initiatives while improving public health and air quality, conserving water and more efficiently using resources host.


The Machine Network will further bolster its strategies in this area with the range of applications including smart grid, environmental and water monitoring, smart street lighting, waste management, parking and others.


“Through the Climate Action Plan, San Diego is executing on its strategy to reduce greenhouse emissions, enhance renewable energy and provide a better environment for its citizens,” said David Graham, deputy chief operating officer, City of San Diego. “Innovations in the areas of smart technology powered by IoT networks such as Ingenu’s RPMA will assist in delivering actionable data to align with these important environmental initiatives.”


San Diego-based Ingenu has a history of providing smart city solutions to the region with its RPMA technology which is currently deployed by San Diego Gas & Electric on a private smart grid network.


The public San Diego Machine Network will serve the greater metropolitan area with its purpose-built machine connectivity, offering unparalleled range, coverage and capacity with extremely low power and long-lasting battery life.


“The San Diego region is leading the country in fostering the development of clean technology solutions,” said Tom Gregor, president and general manager, Machine Network at Ingenu. “We are excited about the opportunity to extend our network connectivity throughout this innovative city and look forward to working with our ecosystem to bring smart, sustainable innovations to life.”


The nationwide Machine Network build-out is now underway across the United States, and is targeted to serve over 100 major metropolitan areas by the end of 2017. It currently provides more than 100,000 square miles of wireless coverage for a host of IoT applications.


In a separate announcement, Ingenu has entered a strategic global agreement with Arrow Electronics to provide its wireless machine-to-machine connectivity and certified modules to Arrow’s global customer base.


“Adding Ingenu’s RPMA technology to Arrow’s growing suite of IoT services will provide our customers with additional options to bring smart, connected solutions to market,” said Aiden Mitchell, vice president of global IoT sales at Arrow. “Arrow’s vast expertise in taking innovation from inception to production will enhance the development of RPMA-enabled devices for operation on a global scale.”


Ingenu will feature its RPMA technology and smart solutions from its ecosystem partners at the DistribuTECH Conference and Expo, taking place until 2 February 2017 at the San Diego Convention Centre.
