Efficient IP services on LPWAN devices

Acklio SCHC Library

Acklio brings the best-in-class features to port efficient IP services to an LPWAN connected IoT device: retrofit IP-based services, densify legacy M2M network with new LPWAN devices, or simply reduce the volume of traffic exchanged over the LPWAN network.

Best in class IoT Devices

Protocol adaptation via IP

Acklio's SCHC library allows to port IP-based services (ex. DLMS, LwM2M, Modbus) with minimum engineering effort. Acklio's SCHC implementation offers a standard adaptation layer for accelerated time-to-market and reduced TCO.

Unrivaled Energy Efficiency

Compressing a bit requires 500 times less energy than transmitting it! SCHC compression drastically reduces the volume of traffic transported over networks, which translates in improved energy efficiency for the device, and higher network capacity. 

Universal device development

Develop or adapt your device application to any LPWAN technology (LoRaWAN, Sigfox, NB-IoT, LTE Cat-M, satellite, etc. ). Built on top of our Acklio SCHC library, it remains compatible with the different underlying connectivities.

Acklio, the worldwide reference SCHC implementation

Pioneer and international leader of the SCHC compression and fragmentation (RFC 8724), Acklio's software allows best-in-class IoT deployments. By drastically reducing the volume of traffic transported over networks, it reconciles: efficient IP services over LPWAN, state-of-the-art end-to-end security, and extreme energy-energy efficiency.
End-to-end implementation requires 2 software components provided by Acklio: a SCHC library embedded in the device and an IP Core platform.
Acklio SCHC library

Empowering your IoT devices. 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.

Acklio IP Core

Acklio’s IP network core allows seamless integration of LPWANs within the IP sphere. In addition to the mirroring compression/fragmentation applications operated with the SCHC library, it allows IP-binding in standalone deployment.

SCHC, the new IETF standard for IoT (RFC 8724)

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.
