Ingenu Inc., provider of purpose-built IoT connectivity, and Upland Global Wireless Technology Ltd., provider of technology management and strategy services, have deployed the Machine Network in the country of Nigeria, the company said.
The Internet of Things (IoT) network, powered by Ingenu´s RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access) technology, will serve Nigeria´s population of approximately 184 million, providing reliable connectivity for IoT/M2M applications including, oil and gas, smart city, smart grid, agriculture and asset tracking.
The Nigerian Machine Network rollout has begun in Lagos, and will continue through the Niger Delta, initially monitoring key oil and gas assets in the petroleum-rich region of the country. The remainder of the network rollout is due for completion by late 2017, which will enable ubiquitous IoT connectivity across Nigeria´s more than 356,000 square miles of area.
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.
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. 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 veterans from Verizon, T-Mobile, and Qualcomm.
