Solution

Protocol adaptation for LPWAN

Convert your wired services or densify a network of devices with LPWAN connectivity and still keep the original legacy applications and communication protocols. Acklio's solution adapts legacy application protocols (ex. DLMS, LwM2M for device management, Modbus) with minimum engineering effort. Acklio's SCHC implementation offers standard adaptation stack for accelerated time-to-market and reduced TCO. 

Plug & Play interoperability

Use original protocols on LPWAN. The adaptation requires no trade-off on the protocols capabilities.

SCHC Standard

Using IETF SCHC adaptation solution ensures accelerated time-to-market and reduced TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Consistent architecture

Adaptation at lower layer for greater scalability, efficiency and security than translation by application gateways.

Seamless adaptation using SCHC

Acklio adaptation solution leverages the SCHC header compression and fragmentation mechanism standardized by the IETF. The principle is to transport legacy protocol data in IPv6/UDP packets, which are compressed and fragmented with SCHC to make them transportable over the LPWAN radio link. Acklio provides the software components to enable these features both in the device and behind the LPWAN core network.  

Acklio provides the reference toolbox for both device makers and connectivity providers:

Acklio SCHC SDK

Acklio SCHC firmware is delivered with the SCHC profile(s) for the target protocol(s) and LPWAN connectivities. This library can be implemented either as a middleware on the device, on the LPWAN communication module or on an external dongle. 

Acklio IP Core

The LPWAN network server is connected to the Acklio IP core. The solution is proposed in the cloud or on-premise and exposes varied APIs and connectors for easy integration to your IoT platform or application server.
