Telensa and Streetlight.Vision Partner to Deliver Integrated Best-of-breed 'Smart' Solution to Street Lighting Industry

Aug 09, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- CAMBRIDGE, England & PARIS, France - Telensa ( www.telensa.com ), the market-leading 'smart' wireless street lighting technology company and Streetlight.Vision ( www.streetlightvision.com ), the leading central management software provider for 'smart' street light and 'smart' street solutions, have announced a strategic partnership to integrate their best-of-breed hardware and software systems.

The strategic collaboration will see the two companies' engineering teams working together to interface Telensa's PLANet (Public Lighting Active Network) system seamlessly with Streetlight.Vision's central management software platform.

According to the companies, this partnership will provide street lighting and 'smart' grid operators with a compelling, cost-effective and interoperable street lighting management solution designed to significantly reduce energy bills and help meet government carbon emission targets.

Telensa is the UK's leading 'smart' street light control company and its systems have been sold to over 25 UK local authorities to control and monitor over 600,000 street lights. Streetlight.Vision's industry-leading software is the most widely adopted in the market and used by many cities across 15 countries, including Europe, China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and South America.

Christophe Orceau, general manager, Streetlight.Vision, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with the UK's leading 'smart' street lighting company to enable Streetlight.Vision end-users to control, command and monitor any luminaire equipped with a Telensa telecell.

"We believe Telensa's PLANet wireless system is an extremely reliable and cost-effective solution. Together, Telensa and Streetlight.Vision offer a compelling street light control system for any city wanting to drastically save energy and reduce maintenance costs on their street light networks." Will Gibson, managing director, Telensa, said: "This partnership effectively brings together the best-of-breed in hardware and software for the street lighting controls industry. Furthermore, giving customers the option to use our radio products and infrastructure with Streetlight.Vision's software is a positive commercial step for Telensa as Streetlight.Vision has a large installed worldwide customer base." Telensa's PLANet system uses advanced ultra-narrow band wireless technology which differentiates it from other solutions on the market. Its telecells and dimming modules are fitted to street lights and these connect wirelessly to a base station which accommodates up to 5,000 telecells over a range of 2-3km (urban) and 5-8km (rural).

Many base stations can be deployed in a cellular architecture providing wide area coverage of a region supporting up to 150,000 lights in total. Base stations connect over a regular IP network to Telensa's own central system server and user interface software, or to a third party such as Streetlight.Vision's platform.

Streetlight.Vision's open and interoperable central management software platform controls several powerline and radio-frequency technologies and provides the end-user with a unified web interface to control and monitor heterogeneous devices. Features include: automatic data collection, equipment inventory, user profile and access rights management, data mart, easy configuration and commissioning, alerts about street light failures including their identification and analysis, central alarm management, scheduling manager, real time control on maps and operating reports.

"We are looking forward to working with Streetlight.Vision and to having an integrated system in the near future," added Will Gibson. "Interoperability is important to some of our customers and so our ability to interface with the market-leading central management software platform is vital, as is our on-going involvement in standards bodies such as the TALQ Consortium." Telensa and Streetlight.Vision are both members of the TALQ Consortium ( www.talq-consortium.org ), which is working for the standardisation of a management software interface for outdoor lighting networks.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
