Traditional Internet protocol stacks (TCP-based) include regular keep-alives that fit to "always on" network models. However, being very greedy in terms of number and volume of messages exchanged, they quickly wipe out the benefits of technologies dedicated to IoT like NB-IoT and LTE-M. Get best-in class efficient cellular IoT solutions with SCHC.
Acklio SCHC enables secure deployments on NB-IoT & LTE-M with +60% measured gains on live deployments.
With SCHC, the radio is always used as efficiently as possible, which is particularly crucial for devices in suboptimal radio conditions.
"Once deployed at large scale, SCHC will unlock a technical barrier that has threatened to stall Internet of Things (IoT) traction by directly addressing the inherent limited throughput and capacity of NB-IoT and lack of Internet Protocol (IP) interoperability of some LPWANs."
With Nordic Semiconductor and Deutsche Telekom live NB-IoT network by IoTCreators, achieved over 60%reduction in traffic when using SCHC. Scaling up to a commercial network of 1M devices like smart meters, the traffic reduction equals more than 365 GB of data every year. Learn more.
SCHC improves energy efficiency and network load by reducing the volume of data exchanged. SCHC makes end-to-end security support efficient!
➡️ 20% efficiency gain on LwM2M/CoAP while enabling IP Convergence
➡️ 60% gain on LwM2M / OSCORE / CoAP / UDP / IP.

SCHC enables an efficient TCP/IP that fits NB-IoT operations. Indeed, TCP, designed for "always on" connectivity models with keep alive, is at scale way too overly talkative for NB-IoT. Alternatively, Acklio SCHC carries the most optimized and reliable version of UDP/IP, with services equivalent to TCP.
