communication technology

Whether using radio or wired connections, communication technologies act as a binder for smart street lighting systems. Everything is connected (lights, streetlight controllers, control software etc.) and communicates like a neural network.

Depending on landscape features, urban density, city’s requirements and future plans, inteliLIGHT® smart street lighting solution has the ability to use, separately or combined, a wide range of communication technologies, making connected street lighting more accessible than ever.

PLC (power line communication)

The LonWorks® (by Echelon) is a powerful power-line communication technology for advanced street light systems. Power Line Communication (PLC) is a technology that enables sending data over existing power cables. This means that, with just power cables running to an electronic device (for example) one can both power it up and at the same time control/retrieve data from it in a half-duplex manner.

RF (radio frequency)

LoRaWAN™ is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification. LoRaWAN™ targets key requirements of Internet of Things such as secure bi-directional communication, mobility and localization services. It provides seamless interoperability among smart things without the need of complex local installations and gives back the freedom to the user, developer and businesses, enabling the rollout of Internet of Things. Find out more …

Sigfox is a cellular style communication technology that provides low power, low data rate and low communication costs for Internet of Things and M2M applications. Sigfox employs Ultra-Narrow Band (UNB) technology, which enables very low transmitter power levels to be used while still being able to maintain a robust data connection, using unlicensed ISM radio bands. The network topology has been designed to provide a scalable, high-capacity network, with very low energy consumption, while maintaining a simple and easy to rollout star-based cell infrastructure. Find out more …

GSM

Narrow-Band IoT (NB-IoT) is a narrowband RF communication technology specially designed for the Internet of Things (IoT). It connects devices more simply and effciently on already established mobile networks, and handles small amounts of infrequent 2-way data, securely and reliably. The special focus of this standard is on very low power consumption, excellent penetration coverage and lower component costs, deployed in GSM and LTE regulated frequencies. Find out more …

LTE-M is a low power wide area (LPWA) technology standard published by 3GPP. It supports IoT through lower device complexity and extended coverage, while allowing the reuse of the LTE installed base. Supported by all major mobile equipment, chipset and module manufacturers, LTE-M networks will co-exist with 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile networks and benefit from all the security and privacy features of carrier-grade networks. Find out more …
