The history behind Acklio
Acklio comes from the meeting between Alexander Pelov and Laurent Toutain in 2010, while they were both researchers at Télécom Bretagne. First focussed on the evolution of the Internet architecture, historically with IPv6, they laid their interest on the optimization of protocols for the Internet of Things, notably with the creation of a pico-IPv6 stack. In 2013, they push this concept with a project called “Open Energy Data”, aimed at monitoring and sharing of electricity consumption among individuals. They identify a lack of tools for managing both the collection network and the equipment fleet. They also anticipate issues of interoperability for these constrained networks.
That’s the trigger! Acklio was founded in 2016. A few weeks after the IETF LPWAN working group was launched and we began developing industrialized products for the IoT market.
