Orange Business Services And Streetline Join Forces To Develop Smart Parking Services In France

PARIS, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In France, parking availability and management is one of the main concerns of cities. To support cities and parking stakeholders, Orange has teamed up with Streetline, a U.S.-based company that provides smart parking solutions.

"Our partnership with Streetline meshes with our strategic programme Smart Cities, which aims to use information and communication technologies to help cities solve their urban challenges . Among major elements of the programme, we are developing a set of connected services embedded in the vehicle or dedicated to drivers. We believe that by combining our expertise in connectivity and integration with innovative solutions created by Streetline, we can help cities enable the use of digital services for citizens and visitors. With 1,300,000 regulated parking places in France, the smart parking market is very promising," said Nathalie Leboucher, Head of the Smart Cities Programme at Orange.

Streetline brings its smartest parking solution, for the first time in France. This solution is based on sensors which detect the presence of vehicles in on-street and off-street parking areas, identify and signal open spaces to the data management system. Drivers can find the spaces using a mobile application which provides vocal directions to guide them to nearby open spaces and offers additional information, including hours, prices, and other policy information. In addition to reducing congestion and improving service quality for users, Streetline offers a solution designed for city leaders to help them manage and analyze the use of parking via a suite of real-time and historical analytics applications.

Orange Business Services is responsible for commercializing, deploying, and providing support for the solution to cities and parking management companies. Orange Business Services relies on its expertise as a network operator to provide the connections which the sensors use to signal available spaces to the management platform. Cities can enjoy an all-inclusive solution and service package, including the technical solution, the service and the connectivity.
