Build a multi-connectivity IoT architecture

Extend the capabilities of your network architecture by integrating Low-Power Wide-Area coverage. With Acklio software, integration with your existing solutions is now native and seamless thanks to IP-based convergence.

What to expect?

At Acklio, we consider the different connectivity technologies to be complementary, not competitive. Our software transforms LPWAN network communications (LoRa, Sigfox, 5G IoT) into IP to remove all the most critical current barriers to multi-connectivity.

Multiply connectivities

Do you currently use a mix of Ethernet, short distance connectivity, and industrial automation protocols?

Broaden your current architecture and densify your network at a lower cost with one or more LPWAN connectivities. Acklio software bring these into the IP sphere for seamless interoperability and ease of operation today and tomorrow.

Integration made easy

Forget about proprietary APIs and the burden of specific data formats. The TCP/IP stack provides a standard and unique interface to build your network.

As a result, native integration between your current, new and upcoming tools. Your development teams work with a framework they are used to. And network management is simplified and sustainable over time.

No vendor lock-in

No longer worry about being locked out by a technology or platform provider.

Reduce your technical debt with IP convergence. You gain the flexibility to evolve towards network solutions that make sense for operational needs and constraints.

Acklio’s software implements IETF standards that will soon be used by many competitive players.

How it works?

Acklio enables IP end-to-end communication between the device and the application over LPWAN. This functionality is supported by two software components, an IP Device SDK and an IP Core Network.

Acklio IP Device SDK

The Acklio SDK device enriches the most constrained end devices with the ability to use the TCP/IP stack. This allows real end-to-end communication over IP between the device and the application.

Soon available

Acklio LPWAN IP Core

Acklio’s IP network core allows seamless integration of LPWANs within the IP sphere. Thanks to the SCHC header compression, it transports the 6LowPan/UDP/COAP stack on constrained networks for end-to-end IP communication from the object to the application.

SCHC, the new IETF standard

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.

A technology breakthrough for a true interoperable IoT

The interoperability products available on the market todayoffersshort-term solutions only. They act as gateways by converting between protocols, specifications, data formats and middlewares. Such solutions work okay on small projects, but they do not scale properly. In particular, when the number of elements in the network increases, the task of developing specific connectors, but also brokering, becomes fare more complex. Consequences include: escalating unplanned integration costs, vulnerability to platform version updates, and increased exposure to cyber attacks.

At Acklio, to achieve an IoT without compromise, we advocate for the massive use of the standard protocols that have ensured the success of the Internet.
