City of London project completed
The City of London has completed a three-year project to deploy a City-wide street lighting network supported by Wi-SUN FAN technology. The City partnered with Wi-SUN member Itron, smart city solutions company, Urban Control, and exterior lighting specialists, DW Windsor, to meet requirements to deliver good in-field performance based on open standards communications technology. The City of London plans to use the Wi-SUN FAN wireless mesh network to integrate additional third-party devices and sensors over the next few years, including traffic and parking monitoring, occupancy sensing and environmental monitoring.
Giles Radford, Head of Highway Construction and Infrastructure, City of London, says: “The smart lighting project had to overcome a number of communications challenges unique within an historical area such as the City of London. Narrow streets and high-rise buildings create urban canyons, which more traditional communications technology like cellular systems struggle to cope with. Wi-SUN FAN was very impressive as it allowed us to penetrate even the narrowest of streets in and around steel and glass structures. We were very impressed with the self-healing functionality of the mesh network – you don’t have to worry about connectivity, it just does the work for you.”
According to Guidehouse Insights there are approximately 100 million Wi-SUN-capable devices deployed globally.
