Smart street lighting network leverages existing smart metering network to serve as platform for other smart city applications, positioning SHTP as a regional smart city role model
RALEIGH, North Carolina, Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Trilliant, a global provider of IoT and smart energy communications solutions, signed a deal on August 15 with Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) to deploy Southeast Asia's first smart city project.
Trilliant will install light-emitting diode (LED) lights, together with controls and a smart city management platform. The smart lighting system will communicate over the existing AMI network owned by the electric utility EVN Ho Chi Minh City, demonstrating the network's capability to host multiple smart city applications. With the addition of the smart street lights on the AMI network, the platform will be able to deliver a range of innovative smart solutions, providing SHTP with increased efficiency, additional revenue, improved sustainability, greater safety for residents and a draw for new residents and businesses.
According to Navigant Research, sensors and other technologies are being added to smart street lighting networks, offering a multitude of new city services, including public safety applications, air quality monitoring, EV charging, traffic management and smart parking.
"The deployment of SHTP's smart street lighting network allows the platform to host numerous other smart city applications, resulting in increased energy and maintenance savings," said Bryan Spear, Trilliant managing director Asia Pacific.
The street lighting deal marks the region's first smart city project and was signed at an event attended by Dr. Le Hoai Quoc, President, People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City's Saigon Hi-Tech Park and Douglas Jacobson, Principal Commercial Officer, United States Commercial Service.
The deal is another milestone in Trilliant's achievements as the leading smart communications provider in Southeast Asia. It comes only five months after Trilliant and EVN completed the successful pilot of the nation's first AMI smart communications network at SHTP, a foundational step in EVN's commitment to advancing the efficiency, reliability and affordability of energy for their customers.
"Trilliant looks forward to continuing our support of Vietnam's smart city strategy," said Andy White, president and CEO of Trilliant. "We aim for this deployment to serve as a template for the government's future deployments."
