Ingenu is introducing the Smarter City programme, which it claims will help cities more easily deploy a range of smart applications. It features a turnkey, end-to-end platform based on its patented Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) communication technology along with technologies from its diverse partner ecosystem.


The programme will provide access to municipal applications, delivering an all-in-one solution for the deployment of smart parking, street lighting, water and electricity metering and management, proactive infrastructure management and environmental monitoring.


Ingenu has partnered with best-in-class solutions providers to support the Smarter City programme infrastructure. Each company has extensive Internet of Things (IoT) industry expertise and offers a rich set of features to support the programme. The initial partners include:


Libelium: designers and manufacturers of hardware and software development kits for wireless sensor networks that enable integration of reliable IoT and smart cities devices with minimum time to market.


PTC: The PTC ThingWorx platform is an enterprise-ready technology platform that enables innovators to rapidly develop and deploy smart, connected solutions for the IoT.


“The Smarter City programme will offer governments and municipalities a simple, reliable and cost-effective IoT network based on RPMA, while immediately delivering functionality and services for a host of smart city applications,” said John Horn, CEO, Ingenu. “Ingenu has a history of success with smart city deployments and these partners will further enhance the capabilities that we can offer to the market.”


Through the Smarter City programme, cities quickly gain access to turnkey solutions that commonly provide a double digit return on investment within the first year of deployment. Unlike other collaborative projects and groups, the Smarter City programme delivers ready-to-deploy applications that are built to support long-term smart city growth initiatives.


The reach of the RPMA network is quickly growing as Ingenu continues its build-out of the Machine Network in the US and further expands its global licensing strategy across the globe. Ingenu’s partner ecosystem also offers RPMA-enabled devices and software on the network to monitor and manage applications from agriculture to waste management.


Ingenu’s RPMA technology is purpose-built for machine to machine/IoT connectivity, offering range, coverage and capacity with extremely low power requirements and longer-lasting battery life. It enables devices to connect more efficiently and cost-effectively in both the uplink and downlink.
