Ingenu Inc. announced Monday a global agreement with Arrow Electronics to provide Ingenu’s wireless machine-to-machine connectivity and certified modules to Arrow’s global customer base.
Ingenu’s RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access) network operates on the globally available 2.4 GHz ISM band. One radio module can serve applications throughout the world, providing the scale and cost benefits to enable partners with a profitable connectivity option.
The patented RPMA technology is also purpose-built exclusively for machines, offering unparalleled range, coverage and capacity with extremely low power requirements and longer-lasting battery life.
Ingenu is building the Machine Network, an IoT network dedicated to LPWA (low-power, wide-area) connectivity for machines. Operating on universal spectrum, the company’s RPMA technology is a proven standard for connecting Internet of Things (IoT) devices around the world, with 38 private networks deployed.
The Machine Network will have further reach, global range and longer lasting battery life than any existing network. Ingenu is led by a highly experienced team, including from Verizon, T-Mobile, and Qualcomm.
“Arrow’s innovation and expertise with IoT solution development will spur further expansion of our ecosystem of devices for RPMA,” said Joshua Builta, vice president of product management, Ingenu. “We can now offer customers the ability to start with an idea and develop it to fruition, simply by using the services provided by Arrow. Our extensive network of RPMA developers is excited about the opportunities this agreement brings to the market.”
“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.”
