Ingenu partners with Taiwanese ODM Compal to deliver ‘robust’ IoT device ecosystem

John Horn, CEO, Ingenu

Ingenu™, a US-based company delivering connectivity exclusively to machines, and Compal Electronics, an original design manufacturer (ODM) of IT products, have announced a strategic partnership that will bring the next generation of Ingenu’s patented RPMAÒ (Random Phase Multiple Access) hardware to the market to meet growing demand for IoT connectivity worldwide.

Ingenu has reportedly 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 US-based Machine Network™ this spring.

Compal will leverage its global scale to quickly launch a rich offering of RPMA-enabled devices serving a variety of vertical industries, including asset management, transportation and logistics. The devices will include the next-generation RPMA module: the picoNodeÔ – a full-featured RPMA-enabled module that is less than the size of a quarter, allowing for increased development within smaller form factors.

Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, Compal Electronics has manufactured products for a variety of global consumer electronics brands. The company’s annual revenues are in excess of US$26 billion.

“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.”

Utilising the globally available 2.4 GHz ISM band, RPMA is “fast becoming an appealing connectivity option”, said Ingenu for IoT application providers looking to deploy a solution with adequate bandwidth and global coverage, without the threat of ever-shifting network standards.

“Ingenu is a very attractive technology partner for Compal’s global IoT strategy,” added Martin Wong, executive vice president, Compal. “The ability to leverage our manufacturing and engineering capabilities aligns well with the growth of RPMA networks and customers all over the world. The next generation of RPMA devices is sure to lead the way in the overall growth of the broader IoT market, and we’re pleased to partner in that effort.”
