LoRaWAN® is now available as a low-power and cost-efficient connectivity option to roll out smart electricity meters. Acklio SCHC header compression and fragmentation enables the DLMS/COSEM over LoRaWAN without specific adaptation to the protocol. This stack leveraging SCHC is now promoted as the best practice by both the LoRa Alliance and the DLMS user association.
Acklio provides the reference toolbox for both device and connectivity providers:
Acklio SCHC SDK and reference design including DLMS over LoRaWAN® SCHC profile. The firmware can run either directly on the communication module or as a middleware on the device.
The provider's LoRaWAN network server is connected to the Acklio IP core. The solution is proposed in the cloud or on-premise and communicates in native DLMS/COSEM with the application server.
