U-blox has announced SARA-S200, one of the smallest modules for the Machine Network, based on RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access), a LPWA technology. The Machine Network is a wireless network built by Ingenu, the creators of RPMA technology, exclusively for M2M and IoT applications. Operating in the globally license-free 2.4GHz ISM band, RPMA is at the heart of secure wireless networks operating in over 20 countries around the world. The company has successfully ported the proven technology used in its first-generation RPMA modules and made it 65% smaller. The device delivers significant cost and size optimizations ideal for application in the smart meter, smart building, gas and oil, asset/personnel tracking and agricultural industries. Andreas Thiel, executive vice president and co-founder of U-blox, commented: “Ingenu’s patented RPMA technology offers significant advantages to a great variety of IoT applications, such as excellent in-building range and AES 128bit security encryption. With autonomous adaptation, the Machine Network delivers interference-free operation and the best performance and reliability in real-world applications. By bringing the SARA-S200 to market we can now deliver these outstanding features in the SARA footprint; our most popular form-factor.”
