Octonion platform manages the end to end experience from device or sensor, to the gateway, to cloud-based frameworks
Actility, a leader in LPWA networks for the Internet of Things (IoT) has teamed up with Octonion, the end-to-end IoT software platform with a view to accelerating the industrialisation of LoRaWAN IoT projects.
Octonion will join the ThingPark ecosystem, providing its platform to IoT developers and clients, which the partners claim will help speed time to market by up to four times.
“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,” said Mike Mulica, CEO, Actility.
“Thanks to its user-centric approach, the Octonion platform will enhance Actility’s total value proposition.”
Octonion said its platform manages the end to end experience from the device or sensor, to the gateway, to cloud-based frameworks. As 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 claims clients can deploy a connected project in six months, as opposed to the 18- to 24 months currently needed with most other IoT platforms. According to Octonion its platform has a track record of quickly delivering big projects to big-brand names.
“We’re incredibly proud to have earned the trust of a world leader and its clients,” Cédric Mangaud, CEO of Octonion. “I’m confident our modular platform will help Actility’s developers and clients massively speed up the deployment time of their IoT projects.”
Octonion was created in 2014 in Switzerland and has since raised €16m from Taiwanese Foxconn (FIH Mobile), Ginko Ventures, Orkos Capital, Swisscom, and Almaz Capital.
Its team includes 50 engineers to tackle all use-cases and provide new entrants in IoT (smart cities, transport, insurance, security and home) with a plug and play IoT software offering.
