Ingenu and WellAware have announced the collaborative expansion of the Machine Network™ that will provide approximately 55 000 square miles of coverage to the network's rapidly growing nationwide footprint.
Covering the greater Texas geographic area, the public network will be powered by Ingenu's RPMA® communications technology.
The expanded network will provide coverage for the most active US oil and gas fields, representing more than 50% of total US production. Additionally, with the scalable architecture of Ingenu's RPMA technology, myriad IoT and M2M devices can be added without the need for further network investment, spurring new application opportunities in the coverage area.
"The solid partnership with WellAware has enabled Ingenu to accelerate its Machine Network build-out strategy in the Southern US," commented Ingenu CEO, John Horn. "WellAware has developed extremely innovative, secure and reliable solutions based on our RPMA technology, and we will continue to collaborate and extend the Machine Network as they expand application services in the oil and gas market."
"The expansion of the Machine Network will provide our customers and prospects with seamless network coverage and management options for monitoring and data collection of their oilfield assets, even in the most remote areas of the oilfield," said Matt Harrison, president and CEO, WellAware. "The RPMA technology has been proven in the most challenging of network environments, and we are looking forward to bringing new applications to market which will enable our customers to dramatically to reduce operating expenses and enhance oilfield intelligence."
The Ingenu/WellAware Machine Network build-out is currently in progress and will continue expansion of additional oil and gas fields throughout 2016.
