Silver Spring Networks, a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, has entered into a strategic partnership with Streetlight.Vision to deliver its Smart City solution.
The campaign would enable operators to efficiently operate their lighting networks while creating a city-wide IPv6-based communications and monitoring network for any other city equipment.
“Our proven IPv6 networking platform and extensive experience designing and operating massive-scale outdoor networks under the most demanding conditions allows us to expand support for any number of applications. As we move towards the ‘Everything Network,’ smart street lighting, traffic control, and the broader range of Smart City infrastructure is a perfect fit with that experience,” Eric Dresselhuys, executive vice president of global development, Silver Spring Networks, said in a statement.
Dresselhuys said that by partnering with market leaders such as Streetlight.Vision, the company is establishing an open, interoperable foundation for infrastructure operators to provide smarter, more intelligent and more cost-effective services to citizens.
“As the leader in managing smart lighting software, we know the challenging environments, high standards required and customer’s expectations in many countries. We are delighted to partner with Silver Spring and have long appreciated their pioneering solutions,” said Christophe Orceau, general manager of Streetlight.Vision.
Streetlight.Vision is a major player in streetlight control and monitoring software.
Silver Spring’s IPv6 city-wide network and industry-leading innovation, according to Oceau, will not only enable municipalities to save energy and increase outdoor lighting maintenance efficiency, but foster a new generation of smart street applications not effectively served by legacy solutions.
Back in December, Silver Spring Networks announced that it was expanding the capabilities of its Smart Energy Platform to support commercial and industrial natural gas users.
The new Silver Spring Commercial and Industrial Gas IMU (Interface Management Unit) supports a broad array of C&I natural gas endpoint devices, and is specifically designed for the needs of C&I customers.
Silver Spring is also offering a new version of its existing residential gas IMU solution to support additional communications options and more cost-effective alternatives.
