The Machine Network is a wireless network built by Ingenu, the creators of RPMA technology, exclusively for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Operating in the license-free 2.4 GHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) band, RPMA is operating in over 20 countries around the world.


u-blox has adapted the technology used in its first-generation RPMA modules and made it 65% smaller. SARA-S200 significant cost and size optimizations ideal for application in the smart meter, smart building, gas & oil, asset/personnel tracking and agricultural industries.


u-blox comments, “Ingenu’s 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… we can now deliver these outstanding features in the SARA footprint; our most popular form-factor.”


Measuring 16 x 26 x 2.3 mm in a Land Grid Array (LGA) package, SARA-S200 provides a migration path between other u-blox form factors and cellular technologies thanks to nested design. Its low-power design (50 µW average power consumption in sleep mode) means it can operate for 10 years or longer from a single battery.


The modules will be manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified facilities with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) and a secure design that meets NERC CIP and other industry-mandated critical infrastructure requirements. The SARA-S200 has been designed for industrial applications and offers an extended operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C.
