Telensa Joins Smart Cities Council to Drive Connected Street Lighting and Smart City Applications

Telensa, the global leader in connected street lighting and Smart City applications, announced that it has joined the Smart Cities Council, the world’s premier consortium of smart city practitioners and experts, with more than 120 members who have to date contributed to more than 10,000 projects. Telensa joins the Council as a North America Lead Partner and will work with the industry coalition sharing its experiences and expertise to advance development and innovation.

Telensa’s PLANet is the market-leading Central Management System (CMS) for streetlights, with over 50 city and regional networks deployed in 8 countries and a project footprint covering over 1 million streetlights, including the world’s largest deployment in the US. Based on a city-owned low power radio system that allows state-wide control and monitoring of street lighting, the PLANet application also future-proofs investments in LED street lighting. It enables localized customization of lighting levels and provides a city-wide platform for low-cost sensor applications.

Industry analyst Northeast Group has named Telensa as the clear global market share leader in smart connected street lighting systems. Telensa’s success is built on a robust end-to-end solution, with a proven business case built on energy and maintenance cost savings for city and utility customers.

“Telensa brings a huge amount of real-world experience in creating Smart Cities, gained through deploying commercial streetlighting networks at mass scale across the globe,” said Jesse Berst, Chairman of the Smart Cities Council. “This experience is a significant addition to our community and we are delighted to welcome Telensa’s expertise which will help accelerate initiatives with municipalities across North America.”

“We are delighted to be joining the Council alongside such an illustrious group of companies leading the move to embed technology into the heart of cities,” said Jack Hanley, VP Sales North America at Telensa. “We look forward to sharing our real-world experiences from deploying and operating networks to drive collaboration and co-operation in the development of Smart Cities around the world.”
