Silver Spring Networks et Streetlight.Vision s'associent pour produire une solution de ville intelligente

Silver Spring Networks, fournisseur de premier plan de plateformes et de solutions réseau dans le domaine de l'énergie intelligente, a annoncé aujourd'hui un partenariat stratégique avec Streetlight.Vision, chef de file des logiciels de contrôle et de surveillance du domaine de l'éclairage, afin de produire une solution de ville intelligente qui permette aux opérateurs d'exploiter leurs réseaux d'éclairage de manière plus efficace et rentable, tout en créant un réseau IPv6 de communications et de surveillance dans l'ensemble de la ville qui s'étende aux autres équipements citadins, tels que les feux de signalisation, les parcmètres, les capteurs environnementaux et la surveillance des infrastructures. L'éclairage des réverbères représente jusqu'à 40 % des dépenses énergétiques des villes. Les réseaux intelligents d'éclairage public peuvent réduire les coûts d'éclairage citadin de plus de 40 % et ceux de l'ensemble du système de 30 %. Silver Spring et Streetlight.Vision ont déjà démontré l'efficacité de leurs solutions sur site et ciblent les opérateurs du secteur de l'éclairage à l'échelle mondiale qui cherchent à améliorer la gestion de leurs infrastructures d'éclairage public et à réduire la consommation d'énergie des réverbères.

« Notre plateforme réseau IPv6 éprouvée et notre longue expérience en termes de conception et d'exploitation de réseaux extérieurs de grande envergure, dans des conditions extrêmement rigoureuses, nous permettent d'étendre notre prise en charge à un grand nombre d'applications. Dans le cadre de notre objectif du « Everything Network™ », l'éclairage des rues, les feux de circulation intelligents et l'élargissement aux infrastructures de la ville intelligente correspondent parfaitement », a déclaré Eric Dresselhuys, vice-président exécutif des développements internationaux chez Silver Spring Networks. « En nous associant avec des chefs de file du marché comme Streetlight.Vision, nous asseyons un fondement ouvert et exploitable par toutes les parties pour permettre aux opérateurs d'infrastructures de fournir des services plus intelligents, plus efficaces et plus rentables aux citoyens. »

« En qualité de leader dans le domaine de la gestion des logiciels d'éclairage intelligent, nous sommes conscients de l'âpreté de l'environnement, de la rigidité des normes exigées et des attentes des clients de nombreux pays. Nous sommes ravis de ce partenariat avec Silver Spring, dont nous apprécions depuis longtemps déjà les solutions pionnières », s'est réjoui Christophe Orceau, directeur général de Streetlight.Vision. « Le réseau IPv6 de Silver Spring et son innovation dans ce secteur permettront aux municipalités d'économiser l'énergie et d'optimiser la maintenance de l'éclairage extérieur, tout en créant une nouvelle génération d'applications de ville intelligentes servies par des solutions héritées efficaces. »

La société énergétique et d'éclairage citadin Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E), qui opère dans le centre des États-Unis, reconnaît la valeur de cette solution combinée. « À notre connaissance, cette solution est la seule réponse techniquement valide pour la surveillance et le contrôle de l'éclairage public, qui sont des aspects cruciaux d'une gestion efficace », a affirmé Ken Grant, Directeur d'OG&E. « Nous sommes impatients de travailler avec Silver Spring et Streetlight.Vision pour tester cette solution, qui pourra améliorer la qualité et réduire les coûts des clients. »

Silver Spring est la seule entreprise à proposer un réseau IPv6 hautes performances qui pose les fondations des communications pour l'ensemble des équipements de ville, quelle que soit la topologie de leur distribution. Ses capacités large bande lui permettent de prendre en charge une foule d'applications, notamment les systèmes intelligents de mesure de la consommation énergétique, l'éclairage citadin intelligent, les capteurs environnementaux, les feux de signalisation, les véhicules électriques, les panneaux d'information et les parcmètres, entre autres. La solution logicielle et de réseau unifiée de Silver Spring offre un bien meilleur rapport point d'extrémité sur concentrateur, est beaucoup plus fiable, assure une plus grande couverture géographique et s'avère plus rentable que les solutions existantes.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.
