Ingenu Inc. launched Thursday the Ingenu Smarter City program that features a turnkey, end-to-end smart city platform based on Ingenu’s patented RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology and innovations from Ingenu’s diverse partner ecosystem.
The Smarter City program will provide access to municipal applications, delivering an all-in-one solution for the simplest deployment of smart parking, street lighting, water and electricity metering and management, proactive infrastructure management and environmental monitoring.
The Smarter City solution by RPMA offers the future of the smart city, while enabling a stable platform to meet future needs as well. It gives users the ability to use their phone to reserve a parking spot for next week’s concert based on recent purchase and then self-driving vehicle automatically navigates directly to spot at the right time.
The RPMA solution has proven ROI with cities worldwide. Whether it is street lighting that reduces greenhouse gas emission, a city managed power grid management system that pays for itself about 30 times over, or an water management system that takes the mystery out of water leakage, Ingenu improve services for citizens, with a solution that pays for itself.
Through the Smarter City program, cities 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 program delivers ready-to-deploy applications that are built to support long-term smart city growth initiatives.
The reach of the RPMA network is growing as Ingenu continues its buildout of the Machine Network in the U.S., and further expands its Global Licensing Strategy across the globe. Ingenu’s vast partner ecosystem also offers RPMA-enabled devices and software on the network to monitor and manage applications from agriculture to waste management.
Ingenu has partnered with solutions providers to support the Smarter City program infrastructure. Each company has extensive IoT industry expertise and offers a rich set of features to support the program. The initial partners include Libelium so that designers and manufacturers of hardware and software development kits for wireless sensor networks can enable integration of reliable IoT and Smart Cities devices with minimum time to market; and PTC whose 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 program 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.”
