Reliable, secure IoT network to provide machine connectivity to largest market in Latin America.
Ingenu Inc. 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 providing 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 Brazil.”
