Actility and Octonion announce a commercial partnership to accelerate the industrialisation of LoRaWAN™ IoT projects

· Paris, France – 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.

Speedier implementation
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 ¬¬¬ massively speed up the deployment time of their IoT projects.”
