The first nationwide network for machines is now available in Ohio.

The Biggest Small Town in America is home to the most advanced wireless network in the world: Ingenu’s Machine Network. Columbus is one of the largest cities in the Midwest, but Ingenu was able to deploy a network covering all 493 sq. miles with just five RPMA access points. RPMA, or Random Phase Multiple Access, was designed from the ground up to provide data connectivity for IoT applications.

RPMA technology enables machines and devices to communicate more efficiently and reliably than ever before. With the launch of the Machine Network in Columbus, municipalities, agencies, and local businesses will be able to leverage its always-available, ubiquitous coverage to build Internet of Things applications.

The Machine Network is rapidly being deployed across the country. To find out when the network is coming to your area, check out our coverage tracker.

Bringing the Internet of Things


The US Department of Transportation recently named Columbus as the $40 million winner of the national ‘Smart City Challenge’ as they look to pioneer the future of transportation. The Machine Network will allow Columbus-based businesses and entrepreneurs to quickly and easily design and deploy connected devices throughout the United States and across the globe.


The Internet of Things will likely find applications across each and every sector of the economy, and the Machine Network will make that all possible. Columbus features an incredibly diverse economy that spans across a huge variety of industries. Pair that fact with the city’s centralized location (it’s located within 500 miles of 48% of the US population), and you have yourself an ideal environment for innovation. The future Smart Columbus will be powered by RPMA.


Every good success story starts with an idea. Putting pen to paper is one thing; prototyping, manufacturing and launching a killer app takes real grit and determination. With the Machine Network, Ingenu aims to make your IoT experience simple. Whether you’re working solo out of a garage or working for a multinational corporation, getting started with the Internet of Things has never been easier.

Columbus Machine Network Case Studies
The Internet of Things (IoT) is supposed to have billions of devices connected that will bring greater efficiencies and savings. But how exactly is that done? The IoT requires well placed sensors that transmit information wirelessly back to the cloud or other storage medium. That information is either used live for things like monitoring or control or is analyzed later to optimize and automate processes. In this document, we will show you ways in which this vision has already been achieved around the globe using Ingenu’s wireless technology, RPMA.

The IoT requires wireless technology to connect devices that collect information. Ingenu is a wireless connectivity provider dedicated exclusively to machine connectivity. Ingenu’s Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) technology provides wireless connectivity to devices allowing them to communicate back to their owners. RPMA has connected smart devices for years. RPMA is a thoroughly proven technology enabling dozens of private networks including verticals such as the smart city, smart grid, asset tracking, and oil and gas since 2008.

In this collection of case studies, we’ll explore ways in which RPMA has brought value to citizens, cities, governments, businesses and enterprises. While some of these case studies are specific to a particular vertical, many may be generalized across other industries. The value of the IoT is real today, and RPMA makes that value real.
