Developer Program: IPv6 over LoRaWAN

Learn, test, prototype and showcase IPv6 over LoRaWAN® with Acklio SCHC: the new SCHC Developer Program includes the complete documentation, SCHC embedded library and Acklio Cloud platform you need. 

IPv6 over LoRaWAN with SCHC

Easily develop rich, efficient and secure solutions over LoRaWAN® in an IP environment. The SCHC compression and fragmentation standard for LPWAN (RFC 8724, RFC 9011, RFC 8824) is now available off-the-shelf for LoRaWAN.

Retrofit legacy device with LoRaWAN

Densify or upgrade existing M2M network with LoRaWAN.

Protocol adaptation

Address legacy IP-based use cases with LoRaWAN.

Unified service Interface

Achieve seamless interoperability with IP.

How SCHC handles IPv6 over LoRaWAN? 

Everything you need to start with IP over LoRaWAN

Exclusive access to:
Acklio SCHC Library

Delivered with configurable compression profile, enabling straightforward adjustment to local communications, regulatory and project requirements

Acklio Cloud Platform

A community edition of Acklio SCHC IP Core delivered with 3 connectors (Actility, Chirpstack, The Things network)

Open Source Examples

Easy onboarding with documented step-by-step configuration to inspire bespoke integrations. Reference designs for growing number of target environments

  • Fully compliant with standards: IETF standards RFC 8724 (SCHC), RFC 9011 (SCHC over LoRaWAN), LoRaWAN standard specifications, and DLMS UA communication profile for LPWAN (Blue Book Ed.14).
  • Support from Acklio available on demand for new design requirements. 
“Thanks to Acklio Developer Program, we enjoyed a fast learning curve on SCHC, and we can now provide IPv6 packets over LoRaWAN. The custom embedded firmware package for our new SiP (iMCP HTLRBL32L) was successfully developed in record time. Thus, Acklio SCHC will be offered pre-integrated to our customers at launch.

Open source demo applications provided:

UDP communications with AT Modem client

Test uplink and downlink transmission of IPv6/UDP packets between a device and a server via LoRaWAN with SCHC compression and fragmentation.

We provide reference designs for:

B-L072Z-LRWAN1 board

Semtech LR1110DVK1TBKS dev kit

NUCLEO-L476RG board with sx1261 extension shield


UDP communications with standalone FreeRTOS device

The example demonstrates a compact implementation of SCHC on FreeRTOS for UDP/IPv6 packet exchange over LoRaWAN. The IP stack used on device side is uIP.

We provide reference designs for:

STM32L476RG-Nucleo board with sx1261 extension shield

(New releases soon)

DLMS communications over LoRaWAN

The example setup illustrates the exchange of DLMS/UDP/IPv6 frames between HES and DLMS meter on a LoRaWAN link thanks to Acklio SCHC implementation. By compressing IPv6, UDP and DLMS wrapper headers, SCHC allows an economy of 56 bytes per message. And SCHC fragmentation  is applied in an "ack-on-error mode" when the compressed messages exceed Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU).

The demo comes with a device application (the DLMS server) simulating the DLMS meter and a DLMS client simulating the Head-End System (HES).

We provide reference designs for:

B-L072Z-LRWAN1 board

Semtech LR1110DVK1TBKS development kit

STM32L476RG-Nucleo board with sx1261 extension shield

SCHC, the new IETF standard for LPWAN (RFC 8724, 9011, 8824)

The compression technology used to transport the TCP/IP stack over LPWAN networks is the new IETF standard: Static Context Header Compression, SCHC (pronounced “chic”).
Our team pioneered the technology and is still strongly committed to the standardization process. The Acklio software suite is the first to integrate this technology for industrial deployments.
