With hundreds of existing projects deployed worldwide, InteliLIGHT’s smart street lighting remote management solution is a proven concept employing a range of communication protocols. Having identified NB‑IoT as strategically important, InteliLIGHT chose to partner with u‑blox on the development of its FRE 220 NB range of NB‑IoT compatible luminaire controllers.
IoT deployments need connectivity and data communication solutions, that much is clear. What type of connectivity solution fits best for which application depends on the nature and context of the application and a long list of possible considerations.
Future Electronics has strengthened its position in the lighting sector by signing a distribution agreement covering EMEA with Flashnet for distributing Flashnet’s inteliLIGHT, a LoRaWAN-compatible smart street lighting solution.
