Silver Spring Networks is collaborating with EVESA to deploy a citywide network in Paris that connects above- and below-ground cabinet-based controllers for street and traffic lights.
Scott Lang, Silver Spring Networks chairman, president, and chief executive officer, says, “With more than two million citizens and 16 million annual visitors, modernizing the public lighting infrastructure for the City of Lights while preserving its world-renowned aesthetic is a crucial undertaking. We are excited to now complete the first phase of our project and extend our relationship with EVESA to deploy a smart city canopy network across Paris. EVESA’s diligent planning and intense technology testing help ensure the citizens of Paris receive a globally proven, highly reliable, and secure smart city solution.”
Silver Spring’s smart city platform enables municipalities to deploy intelligent lighting systems that significantly improve system reliability, increase energy efficiency, reduce operational costs, lengthen equipment life, and improve safety. According to Silver Spring, “The open, standards-based solution also enables cities to establish a platform for future smart city applications and services such as traffic management, environmental sensors, smart parking, electric vehicle charging, electricity metering, water conservation, and many others.”
Silver Spring has also been selected by Florida Power & Light for what is touted as the world’s largest connected lighting project consisting of approximately 500,000 networked street lights across South Florida. Currently, the company has delivered more than 20 million IPv6-networked devices for critical infrastructure networks to countries around the world.
