Microsoft Azure signs up another global IoT network

By Nick Flaherty

Microsoft has picked up another potentially large Internet of Things (IoT) deployment for its Azure cloud service in a deal with Ingenue.

Ingenue will use the Azure IoT Hub for its end-to-end IoT networks using its Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) low power network technology. This uses globally available spectrum for M2Mand IoT long range links. It enables devices to connect more efficiently and cost-effectively in both the uplink and downlink and requires less towers to provide coverage to large areas (1:10 to 1:30 radio towers for RPMA vs. cellular) and has been used in 38 networks so far.
Azure IoT Hub supports a broad set of operating systems and protocols, giving IoT solution developers the ability to quickly connect, monitor and manage IoT assets. Ingenu’s Intellect RPMA device management platform, will integrate with the Azure IoT Hub to provide secure bi-directional communication between RPMA-enabled devices and web applications. The solution will further enhance the processing of collected IoT data using Azure services such as Stream Analytics, SQL Database, Event Hubs, App Service, and Power BI Embedded.

“The inherent characteristics of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform spurred the seamless development of this innovative solution,” said Joshua Builta, vice president, product management at Ingenu. “The Microsoft and Ingenu application teams collaborated to create an extremely simple and useful tool which extends the capabilities of the Intellect platform.”

“This integration enables complete network visibility and an end-to-end robust data management solution,” said Sam George, Director, Microsoft Azure IoT at Microsoft.
