The area has become one of the hottest tech hubs in the country and the network will support its rapid growth
Ingenu is rolling out its Machine Network to the Greater Salt Lake City area in the US. It will provide Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity across 650 square miles of Utah’s most populous metropolitan area, serving more than 99 per cent of the 1.6 million-plus population.
The public machine-centric network will deliver connectivity to a variety of IoT applications, including smart city, smart grid, mining and others. It represents the next stage in Ingenu’s plan to build the first wireless Machine Network in the US which, it claims will be the world’s largest IoT network dedicated to LPWA (low-power, wide-area) connectivity for machines only.
The build-out is underway across the United States and is targeted to serve 30 major metropolitan areas by the end of 2016. Earlier this month it announced the availability of the Machine Network to the greater Indianapolis market, with a coverage area of nearly 700 square miles. In total, its Machine Network currently provides more than 100,000 square miles of wireless coverage for a host of IoT applications.
The network is powered by Ingenu’s patented Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) communication technology, which provides robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments. Although the topology of the Salt Lake City area is diverse, the range and capacity attributes of RPMA enable reliable coverage over the metro area, utilising just nine access points.
“The greater Salt Lake area has become one of the hottest technology hubs in the country and we’re thrilled to bring RPMA technology to the area in support of its rapid growth,” said Tom Gregor, president and general manager of the Machine Network, Ingenu.
