Smart communications platforms Trilliant will buy machine connectivity company Ingenu's smart grid application business.
As a result, Trilliant will assume Ingenu's smart grid customers as well as its advanced metering infrastructure management software. Trilliant will also license Ingenu's random phase multiple access network technology to integrate into its Smart Communications Platform.
Purpose-built for machine-to-machine connectivity, Ingenu's RPMA technology has been deployed on more than 35 networks across the globe, enabling a host of smart utility and smart city applications in the most demanding of environments.
The addition of RPMA technology to the Trilliant Smart Communications Platform ideally complements the company's multi-tier RF mesh and cellular solutions.
This multi-technology approach enables utilities to choose the right combination of technologies today, and allows for the evolution of communications systems in the future — all with consistent business processes.
Under the terms of the agreement, Ingenu will continue to develop and support the network infrastructure based on its RPMA technology. The transition of the company's Smart Grid business to Trilliant will enable Ingenu to enhance its network ecosystem partnerships and focus on the implementation of its recently announced Machine Network strategy.
