Telensa has announced a partnership with Yotta to bring together its PLANet Central Management System with Yotta’s Alloy platform, enabling users to control groups of streetlights and other wirelessly connected sensors.
With more than 1.8 million lights connected, PLANet is the world’s most popular connected streetlight system, Telensa said.
It described it as is an end-to-end intelligent street lighting system, consisting of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, a dedicated wireless network and a central management system.
Yotta’s Alloy asset management platform is scalable across multiple asset types and integrates with all systems through powerful APIs (Application Programming Interface).
Telensa CEO Brent Hudson said: ‘For over 15 years Telensa has been working with cities to make millions of streetlights smart, and create a platform for further smart city sensing. We’re delighted to integrate with Yotta’s next-generation Alloy solution, to make cities a smarter, more efficient and joined-up place for citizens to live.’
Yotta CEO Nick Smee said: ‘Since Alloy was launched, Yotta has been focused on laying the foundation for the future of smart cities and a new world of connectivity. Telensa shares that vision. We are confident that by working together in tandem, we will be taking further steps to realise it.’
Telensa makes wireless smart city applications and is based in Cambridge in the UK, with regional operations in the USA and Australia.
It said that with urban authorities increasingly looking for pragmatic ways to manage and develop their smart cities, ‘this is a great first step to providing an integrated and accessible solution’.
