Smart city outdoor lighting provider CIMCON said the city of Philadelphia has selected a connected lighting solution from CDW-G, featuring CIMCON’s NearSky™ smart city platform and lighting controllers as part of a pilot program for the city’s SmartCityPHL Initiative.
The city has deployed a suite of smart city small cell technologies, including intelligent streetlight controls, air quality monitors, and vehicle and people traffic counters, to better understand the benefits of these solutions on the efficiency of city operations and the quality of city services for citizens, businesses and visitors.
“We are looking at technology that allows us to leverage our existing streetlight infrastructure to evaluate and deploy smart city technologies,” said Richard Montanez, Deputy Streets Commissioner for Transportation with the Philadelphia Streets Department. “This technology gives us the flexibility to deploy the solutions we need now and address future requirements as our City’s needs evolve.”
In addition to CIMCON’s NearSky platform and lighting controllers, the smart city solution deployed in Philadelphia includes air quality sensors, digital surveillance cameras, video analytics software and networking technology from Cisco. CDW-G will provide integration services and local support.
