Samsung SDS, Together With Telensa, Develops Intelligent Street Lamp Project

- May 10, 2019-

According to foreign media reports, Samsung's digital Department SDS and Telensa, the developer of Intelligent Street Lamp and Internet of Things (IoT) data acquisition system in the United Kingdom, announced that they are cooperating on the Smart City project. This is the first cooperation between Samsung SDS and Telensa.

The two companies are working together to develop smart street lamps, and the two giants in the field of smart city lighting will work together to promote wider application of the technology worldwide. The first cooperation will be carried out in the Korean urban project, followed by deployment in the Asia-Pacific region and the United States.

By combining the Telensa PLANet street lamp control system with the Brightics IoT platform of Samsung SDS, cities will be able to save energy and access more and more sensor applications.

Telensa is a leader in intelligent street lighting, with more than 1.7 million street lights deployed worldwide. Telensa PLANet is an end-to-end intelligent street lamp system, which consists of a wireless node connected to a single light bulb, a dedicated wireless network owned by the city, and a central management application. The system can effectively reduce the cost of urban energy and maintenance, and improve the quality of service through automatic fault reporting. Street lamp pole sensors can be used as information transmission tools to build a safer, energy-saving and intelligent city. In addition to the UK market, Telensa is also actively looking for overseas markets and selling its products in many countries (regions), including China, Russia, the Middle East and the United States. This time, Telensa has entered the Korean market.

Samsung SDS will provide its Brightics IoT, an AI-supported data collection platform dedicated to retrieving and analyzing large data. Telensa will also take advantage of Samsung SDS's deep expertise in other areas, such as 5G technology and block chains, which require street lights for ubiquitous deployment.

Samsung SDS will also work with Telensa on the Urban Data Project, which aims to create a trust infrastructure for urban data, enabling cities to collect and use data to facilitate citizens.
