Activate a LoRaWAN backup link for IP Devices
Acklio LPWAN Backup Connectivity Kit allows secured SSH communications over LPWAN with network routers and switches. It addresses the worst-case outage scenarios by offering a. redundancy solution for network administrator to connect, diagnose and fix problems remotely.
Out-of-the-box LoRaWAN redundancy link
Acklio LPWAN backup connectivity kit allows setup an additional “virtual wire” to your Cisco IOx network devices. It works out-of-the-box and provides full end-to-end security to routers and switches. Plus, contrary to 3G/4G mobile networks, LPWAN allow deploying dedicated private networks on industrial sites, smart grid areas or datacenters without license requirements.
“As the global leader in IP networking, Cisco is delighted to have developed alongside Acklio a turnkey backup connectivity kit which offers IPv6 reachability across LPWAN in case of a major primary network outage.
By integrating LPWAN and IP, this solution provides value to our customers with critical infrastructure in remote locations today, while setting the stage for additional solutions that combine the power of IP networking with the unique capabilities of LPWAN tomorrow.”

SCHC, the new IETF standard
Acklio LPWAN Backup connectivity kit the very first industrial implementation of the IETF SCHC compression-decompression technology. This innovation of Acklio enables interoperable use of the IP protocol suite across LPWAN. It drastically facilitates building rich energy efficient services without the constraints related to proprietary technologies. IP over LPWAN finally allows to easily switching from arduous bespoke device development to large-scale device and service developments.
How it works?
To connect the IP equipment via LoRaWAN, a dongle ensures the compression/decompression of IP messages to send them over the radio link. These messages are interpreted by the Acklio LPWAN IP Core before being transmitted to your third-party applications. We ensure a full end-to-end SSH communication between the IP equipment and the application.
