US-based Ingenu has partnered with Vula Telematix, a leading provider of network solutions for South Africa’s telecommunications and energy markets, to launch its Internet-of-Things(IoT), Machine Network in the Western Cape region of South Africa.

This public IoT (Internet of Things) network is powered by Ingenu’s patented RPMA communication technology, which is designed to provide robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments. The cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria will utilize the RPMA network to deliver smart grid and smart city services. RPMA services will expand to additional cities in the near future.

Vula Telematix, an Ingenu Global Licensing Partner, is the exclusive provider of the Machine Network in South Africa and will be building out the nationwide RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) network to serve the country’s population of over 52 million.

Agnat Max Makgoale, CEO of Vula Telematix
The availability of the Machine Network to the Drakenstein Municipality in Paarl, Cape Town, will provide a multitude of smart energy services to its customers and will enable limitless opportunities for future smart city initiatives. Following the initial roll-out, we will expand the network to provide truly ubiquitous IoT coverage throughout South Africa to support the region’s sustainability and technology initiatives.

John Horn, CEO of Ingenu
The powerful RPMA network is uniquely designed to support existing IoT applications, with the longevity and capacity to accommodate growth. This enables IoT providers such as Vula Telematix to leverage the network and expand its customer ecosystem without the need for additional infrastructure investment.
