Inc.™, the company that delivers purpose-built IoT
connectivity, and Datorá Telecomunicações Ltda. ("Datora"), today
announced the launch of the Machine
Network™ in the country of Brazil. The Internet of Things (IoT)
network, powered by Ingenu's RPMA®
(Random Phase Multiple Access) technology, will serve Brazil's
population of over 200 million, providing reliable connectivity for
IoT/M2M applications such as agriculture, environmental monitoring,
logistics and smart city.
Datora will deploy the Machine Network throughout Brazil, with expected
completion in late 2018. The network will be integrated with its IoT
Connectivity Abstraction Layer Solution (IoT CAL Solution), which allows
different types of seamless connectivity for its clients. The initial
RPMA rollout will be in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil's
third-largest state in terms of GDP and home of the headquarters of
CODEMIG (Companhia de Desenvolvimento de Minas Gerais), a company
responsible for significant economic development in the State and a
Datora Mobile shareholder.
"The Brazilian market is rapidly expanding its focus on IoT connectivity
to bring useful new applications to the region," said Tomas Fuchs, CEO
of Datora Group. "Datora's vast experience in providig IoT/M2M
connectivity and Ingenu's robust, reliable RPMA technology will provide
unprecedented network availability for a host of IoT solutions and
flexibility of integration with our IoT CAL Solution."
Ingenu is currently building out its Machine Network in the U.S. and is
on pace to have over 100 major metropolitan areas covered by the end of
2017. The company is also partnering with global strategic companies,
like Datora, to build country-wide public networks specifically for IoT
traffic in their respective countries.
"Ingenu's partnership with Datora is the company's largest deployment in
the Latin American market to date," said John Horn, CEO, Ingenu. "We are
excited to align our global expansion with Datora, an established and
profitable Brazilian company, to support the connectivity needs of this
growing nation, and to extend the reach of our RPMA technology in
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. It uniquely enables
devices to connect more efficiently and cost-effectively in both the
uplink and downlink. Requiring fewer towers to provide coverage to large
areas (1:10 to 1:30 radio towers needed for RPMA vs. cellular), RPMA is
rapidly becoming a global standard for IoT communication. For more
