Silver Spring Networks y Streetlight.Vision se Unen para Entregar la Solución Smart City (ciudad inteligente)

Silver Spring Networks, proveedor líder de plataformas de interconexión y soluciones para redes de energía inteligente, anunció hoy una alianza estratégica con Streetlight.Vision, líder en software de control y monitoreo de iluminación en vías públicas, para entregar una solución de Ciudad inteligente que permita a los operadores una operación más eficiente y fiable de sus redes de iluminación, mientras crea una red de comunicaciones y monitoreo en toda la ciudad basada en IPv6 para cualquier otro equipo de la ciudad, que incluye semáforos, medidores de estacionamiento, sensores ambientales y monitoreo de infraestructura. Hasta el 40 % de los gastos en energía de la municipalidad se deben a la iluminación de las vías públicas. Las redes inteligentes de iluminación pública pueden impulsar reducciones de más del 40 % en el consumo de energía por la iluminación de las vías públicas y puede reducir los costos de todo el sistema en un 30 %. Silver Spring y Streetlight.Vision ya demostraron la eficacia de las soluciones en el campo y están dirigidas a operaciones mundiales de iluminación que buscan gestionar de manera más eficiente su infraestructura de iluminación pública y reducir el consumo de energía en la iluminación pública.

“Nuestra plataforma de interconexión IPv6 y vasta experiencia comprada en el diseño y la operación de redes para exteriores a escala masiva bajo las condiciones más exigentes nos permite expandir el soporte a cualquier número de aplicaciones. A medida que avanzamos hacia ‘Everything Network™,’ el control de tráfico, la iluminación inteligente de las vías públicas, y la gama más amplia de infraestructura de Ciudad Inteligente, constituye un ajuste perfecto de esa experiencia”, manifestó Eric Dresselhuys, Vicepresidente Ejecutivo de Desarrollo Global, Silver Spring Networks. “Al aliarnos con líderes del mercado como Streetlight.Vision estamos estableciendo cimientos abiertos e interoperables para que operadores de infraestructura proporcionen servicios más inteligentes y más rentables a los ciudadanos”.

“Como líder en gestión de software de iluminación inteligente, conocemos los ambientes desafiantes, los elevados estándares requeridos y las expectativas de los clientes en muchos países. Nos complace aliarnos con Silver Spring y hemos valorado sus soluciones de vanguardia por mucho tiempo”, manifestó Christophe Orceau, Gerente General de Streetlight.Vision. “La red para toda la ciudad IPv6 y la innovación líder en la industria de Silver Spring no solo permitirá a las municipalidades ahorrar energía y aumentar la eficiencia en el mantenimiento de la iluminación en exteriores, sino que también permitirá una nueva generación de aplicaciones inteligentes para las vías públicas no atendidas eficazmente por las soluciones tradicionales”.

El proveedor de energía y el operador de iluminación en la vía pública Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E), con operaciones en el centro de los Estados Unidos, reconoce el valor de esta solución combinada. “Esta solución es la única respuesta técnicamente eficaz que ofrece el monitoreo y control tan críticos para la gestión eficiente de la iluminación pública”, manifestó Ken Grant, Director Gerente de OG&E. “Esperamos trabajar con Silver Spring y Streetlight.Vision para evaluar esta solución que podría mejorar la calidad y reducir los costos para nuestros clientes”.

Silver Spring es única en su capacidad de proporcionar una red IPv6 de alto desempeño que establece los cimientos de comunicación para todos los bienes de una ciudad, independientemente de la topología de distribución. Sus funcionalidades de gran ancho de banda brindan soporte a una enorme variedad de aplicaciones que incluyen medidores de energía inteligentes, iluminación inteligente de las vías públicas, sensores ambientales, semáforos, vehículos eléctricos, tableros de información y medidores de estacionamiento, entre otros. La solución de interconexión y software unificada de Silver Spring proporciona un criterio de valoración muy superior con respecto a la relación del concentrador, asegura niveles mayores de fiabilidad, permite una cobertura geográfica más amplia y es más rentable que las soluciones existentes.

In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
