Launch of the Machine Network

On March 9th, I attended an interesting event at the University of Texas at Dallas which was presented by Ingenu. The smart folks from Ingenu were there to talk about the “Machine Network”.

Dallas-Ft. Worth is about to receive a cutting edge network that will change the way the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications will be delivered. The network will be called the “Machine Network” and will be a public network that is totally dedicated to machine-only communications.

The Machine Network will be much like a cellular network but will not have any Smartphone or voice traffic on it. It will be optimized for communications with devices/objects/equipment only, operate on a battery that will last at least 10 years and be a low cost network. Ingenu have been perfecting the technology since 2008 with utilities and oil & gas companies customers guiding their focus and improvements (35+ private networks worldwide).

The Machine Network is comprised of:

  1. Access points that broadcast RPMA wireless signal
  2. Modules that receive the signal from the access points
  3. The RPMA signal itself

Ingenu is expecting that the Machine Network will be the world’s largest IoT-dedicated network by the end of 2016.
