ThingPark X IoTFlow (TPX) Service

Actility believes in a radically more efficient and sustainable world through ubiquitous digital-twin technology. Digital twins are software representation of physical devices. ThingPark X is the cornerstone of Actility’s vision to make digital twins common place. Positioned at the edge of the LoRaWAN® network, ThingPark X simplifies the interface between LPWAN-connected sensors and IoT application, transforming sensors raw data into application-friendly actionable information, that can be fed into digital twins object of various IoT Platforms.

Actility ThingPark X IoTFlow -in short TPX- is the dataflow module of the ThingPark platform. It processes both uplinks (sensor to network) and downlink (commands to sensors and actuators).

  • In the uplink direction TPX decodes the binary payload to JSON format (using a standard library of CoDecs or custom ones), it optionally reformats or normalizes the data to a uniform ontlogy, and finally can feed the uplink data to 3rd party services (e.g. a MQTT broker) or platforms (e.g. Azure IoThub).
  • In the downlink direction it can encore REST commands to the proper binary payload format, and manage the secure connection with the Network Server for transmission.
    TPX is continuously expanding and provides many other services, for more informatin refer to TPX documentation portal.
