Advanced Connectivity platform for vertical segments (ACTIV8)

IoT accelerator - a unified approach with applications and services


ACTIV8, the Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segments High Impact Initiative provides a unified approach for developers and industry to support the widespread growth in IoT.

ACTIV8 addresses the Internet-of-Things market, which currently is in its early stages, and dominated by domain-specific platforms, proprietary architectures and vertically divided technology silos. ACTIV8 enables crossing these divisions by offering a unified approach consisting of end-to-end components and solutions.

A special focus is set on connectivity, middleware, device management and privacy & security, which are provided as a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

The Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segments is the sum of the following tasks:

  • Connectivity
  • Middleware layer and APIs
  • Management of devices and gateway
  • Security and privacy modules and APIs
  • Vertical Applications

The High Impact Initiative has active collaboration with and between the leading European companies, universities, research institutes, and startup, such as Aalto University, Bittium/SafeMove, Engineering, Ericsson, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Politecnico di Milano, RISE SICS and Tampere University of Technology.
