California-based Silver Spring Networks has announced a new go-to-market partner, Rongwen, for its rapidly growing Smart Cities and smart street lighting business.
Rongwen is one of the largest smart LED street light providers and operators in China, and has deployed more than 250,000 controllable LED street lights in its home country under the Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) business model.
Rongwen is also active in emerging markets across Asia and South America. It will integrate the open standards-based Silver Spring IPv6 platform in order to deliver solutions including lighting, Smart City management services such as environment sensing and road monitoring applications, and advanced energy saving applications.
Silver Spring Networks’ world patented technology can allows integration of various sensors and controlling devices for city management, traffic control, environmental monitoring and efficient control and management of new energy infrastructure.
Streetlight.Vision 6 (SLV6) bundled solutions allow cities and lighting operators to receive the benefits of a broad based Smart City platform without having to build and manage the network themselves, thus reducing their capital outlay and IT knowledge requirements.
