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.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
