Smart move as street lighting kings share Asia Pacific crown
Telensa in Cambridge and global group LIGMAN are combining leading aesthetic LED luminaires and wireless controls to provide smart street lighting and smart city sensing technology to the Asia Pacific market.
With energy and carbon reduction increasingly in the forefront of many cities’ agendas, switching lighting to LED is an obvious next step.
Including wireless controls maximises the benefits of LEDs, generating further energy and maintenance cost-savings, and future-proofing further smart city sensing.
The alliance combines LIGMAN’s highly efficient architectural street and area lighting with Telensa’s market leading smart street lighting and smart city sensing.
Will Gibson, chief commercial officer at Telensa, said: “Cities across Asia Pacific are increasingly adopting wireless controls. Over the past couple of years Telensa has deployed smart street lighting in Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere.
“Partnering with LIGMAN will satisfy the industry’s need for high-end luminaires and wireless controls in a market where true commitment is being shown to the promise of smart city technologies.”
Telensa makes wireless smart city applications, helping cities around the world save energy, work smarter and deliver more joined-up services for their citizens.
Telensa PLANet is the world’s most deployed smart streetlight solution, with a footprint of 1.8 million lights. Urban IQ builds on the compelling business case for smart street lighting to provide cities and utilities with an open, low-cost platform to add multiple sensor applications.
Working with Microsoft and Samsung in the Urban Data Project, Telensa is helping cities to build future-proof operations driven by data intelligence, trust and transparency.
Telensa is based in Cambridge in the UK, with regional operations in the US and Australia.
LIGMAN has global HQs in the Czech Republic (Europe), Oregon (US) and Thailand (APAC).
