In a major boost to the world of internet of things, Ingenu, a company specialising in providing connectivity to machines, and Compal Electronics, a gloabl ODM of IT products, forged a partnership to create a robust IoT device ecosystem. With this partnership, Ingenu would its RPMA (random phase multiple access) hardware to millions of IoT products.
On the other hand, Compal will launch an array of RPMA enabled devices to cater to multiple business verticals like asset management, transportation and logistics. The devices will include the next-generation RPMA module: the picoNode – a full-featured RPMA-enabled module that is less than the size of a quarter, allowing for increased development within smaller form factors.
“The global demand for RPMA solutions is skyrocketing and Compal is a key strategic partner in helping Ingenu scale quickly to meet this demand,” said Ingenu CEO John Horn.
“Having a robust ecosystem is key to the widespread adoption of RPMA technology, and with Compal’s strategic partnership, we are primed as a company to quickly scale to address the device needs of the IoT market. The collaborative efforts in improving the design of our technology will offer a wider range of device options to our current and future customers,” he added.
RPMA uses 2.4 GHz ISM band and is fast becoming an appealing connectivity option for IoT application providers looking to deploy a solution with adequate bandwidth and global coverage, without the threat of ever-shifting network standards.
Ingenu has seen tremendous global demand for its RPMA technology and solutions since announcing its global licensing strategy in February, and rolling out the first cities on its U.S.-based Machine Network this spring.
