Our story

Using Internet Protocols on IoT networks

The story begins at the IMT Atlantique, a major French institute with significant scientific contributions to network architecture, security and protocols - notably running the first IPv6 network in the late 1990s. It is in 2012 that our co-founders, Laurent Toutain and Alexander Pelov, started exploring the emerging low-power wide area networks (LPWANs), and demonstrated in 2014 the feasibility of applying them to standard Internet Architecture and Protocols.

For a better connected world, open and trustworthy

At Acklio, we develop and leverage standards and technologies to enable IoT networks and devices to achieve interoperability, security and energy efficiency with no tradeoffs.
