See how connected lighting transformed life for workers and facility managers at Cisco’s Toronto headquarters.
Partnering with Vodafone has allowed us to create an M2M-based municipal connected lighting system that lets city authorities monitor and control street lighting via our cloud-based management system, CityTouch.
Philips CityTouch collects accurate location and lighting status data in real time via Vodafone M2M SIM cards embedded in the streetlights. City authorities can use this information to expedite maintenance troubleshooting street light outages remotely, reducing cost and improving operations.
Together with SAP SE, we are delivering on our vision for smarter cities by harnessing the Internet of Things and integrating information from Philips connected street lights with data from other city ERM systems in a single integrated city dashboard. By linking Philips CityTouch street lighting management system with real-time situational awareness based on the SAP HANA® platform, city authorities have a 360-degree view of data such as street lighting, parking and traffic controls.
Using data visualization and analytics tools, city authorities can plan more efficiently and manage costs, while historical data can provide insights into trends and improve long-term planning.
See how we helped Buenos Aires save 50% on operational costs while unlocking insights from 91,000 street lights.
Our partnership with Ericsson brings smart cities closer through a connected street lighting model that offers city officials an innovative way to afford energy efficient LED lighting to meet sustainability goals, and enables network operators to offer improved city-wide mobile broadband and app coverage.
Philips SmartPoles are equipped with small cell LTE technology from Ericsson, enabling 4G/LTE connectivity. This lets city authorities control street lighting systems wirelessly to meet changing resident needs and urban conditions. And citizens benefit from improved mobile network coverage for data communications and enhanced safety with brighter, well-lit streets.
