To capitalize on this trend, the Lumewave by Echelon® platform is architected to allow cities to integrate a growing range of IoT applications so municipal systems like crosswalk flashers, emergency call boxes, traffic analysis and human-centric street lighting can work together seamlessly, while improving public safety and creating a more comfortable environment. The Northeast Group report highlights Echelon customer success stories including the following:Dongguan, China - Echelon and the LONWORKS open protocol platform were selected as the integration and communication system for the city which set out to retrofit alley and streetlights with an IoT infrastructure. It created a system capable of failure alarms, intelligent dimming and energy consumption tracking, as well as the future potential to integrate other smart city applications such as road environment monitoring, crime surveillance and air quality sensors. Quebec, Canada - Echelon architected a smart streetlight solution that used the existing powerline communications (PLC) technology to manage the city's bus control system. This strategy is a prime example of leveraging existing infrastructures to create efficiencies with time and cost savings for municipalities. "The Northeast Group study offers keen insight into the smart streetlight market which appears to be accelerating, driven by the promise of sustainability, security and livability enhancements," said Ron Sege, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Echelon.
