Founded in 2010, Actility is developing ThingPark®, a next-generation M2M (machine-to-machine) communication platform designed for massively scalable deployments of mission-critical applications. By leveraging this infrastructure, Actility designs applications targeting key areas of the smartgrid, such as demand management and demand shifting. These applications help limit consumption peaks and reduce the carbon footprint per kilowatt-hour. Actility’s admission control technology also reduces the incremental investments in the distribution network required to serve the needs of electric vehicle charging.
Truffle Capital’s investment in Actility in October 2010 will allow the first release of ThingPark®.
