Actility and Octonion announce a commercial partnership to accelerate the industrialisation of LoRaWAN IoT projects
Actility, the global leader in LPWA networks for the IoT, is pleased to announce a partnership with Octonion, the end-to-end IoT software platform. Octonion will join the ThingPark ecosystem, providing its platform to IoT developers and clients, accelerating time to market by up to four times.
For the IoT to deliver on its potential, there is a clear demand for tools to enable the easy and swift delivery of IoT solutions. The Actility/Octonion solution meets those requirements with a modular approach, delivering fast time-to-market, and focusing on the user experience.
A modular approach
The Octonion platform is comprehensive and unique in today’s market, managing the end to end experience from the device or sensor, to the gateway, to cloud-based frameworks. Because each layer of the platform is device-agnostic and compatible with any hosting solution, it allows customers to address any vertical or horizontal use-case, developing and operating their own IoT solution.
Octonion’s expertise allows clients to deploy a connected project in 6 months, as opposed to the 18 to 24 months currently needed with most other IoT platforms. The Octonion platform has a track record of quickly delivering big projects to big-brand names such as Everlast, Babolat, and Rossignol. Today, the Octonion platform already manages millions of sport data points. From today, Actility’s clients can also benefit from that expertise.
A user-centric approach
Today, most LoRaWAN projects are currently focused on machine-to-cloud scenarios without human interaction. Octonion brings a user-centric perspective – in the design of interfaces that provide an unparalleled experience to the end-user on various platforms (iOS, Android, Tablet, PC…).
Mike Mulica, Actility’s CEO, comments “Actility is thrilled to be collaborating with Octonion to provide developers with a flexible and modular IoT framework that enables them to build the IoT solution they need. Thanks to its user-centric approach, the Octonion platform will enhance Actility’s total value proposition.”
Empowering the ThingPark community
Octonion is joining the ThingPark program, the one-stop-shop for any IoT deployment. Developers within the ThingPark ecosystem can take full ownership of their projects and will be able to use the Octonion platform as a base to tailor their projects as they see fit. They will have access to a full IoT end-to-end experience combining devkit (device+sensors), a network server (ThingPark), and an application server (Octonion platform) to create solutions based on LoRaWAN technology powered by ThingPark.
Cédric Mangaud, CEO of Octonion concludes “We’re incredibly proud to have earned the trust of a world leader and its clients. I’m confident our modular platform will help Actility’s developers and clients massively speed up the deployment time of their IoT projects.”
