Huawei debuted its Connected City Lighting Solution at CeBIT 2016, the industry’s first Internet of Things (IoT) lighting solution with multi-level intelligent control. 

Huawei Connected City Lighting Solution connects street lamps to the IoT and adopts a GIS-based management system, enabling cities to enhance the control and performance of every street lamp.

The solution provides municipal managers with status information on each lamp, in every street and enables precise control of on-off switches and brightness of individual street lamps.

This allows for on-demand lighting and a reduction in energy consumption by up to 80%.

According to The Climate Group, there are approximately 304 million street lamps around the world, and the number is expected to reach 352 million by 2025.

Street lamps are almost ubiquitous in cities, and while these lamps bring convenience to people’s lives, they also consume a vast amount of energy and increase management costs for municipalities.

Huawei Connected City Lighting Solution is designed to address these issues, offering:

  • Integrated smart lighting policies to ensure high energy efficiency
  • Visible management and online inspection to prevent failures
  • Multi-level smart control for enhanced protection and reliability
  • All-layer openness to build a smart city

“Since the launch of Huawei Agile IoT Solution in May 2015, we have delivered several successful applications, including the power IoT solution, smart building solution, and smart stockbreeding solution,” said Wu Chou, CTO of Huawei Switch and Enterprise Communications Product Line.

“Huawei Connected City Lighting Solution is another powerful application of Huawei Agile IoT Solution, and an important advancement towards a truly Smart City.

“Lighting IoT lays a solid foundation for the integration of a variety of sensors, to facilitate functions such as environmental and transportation monitoring, and installation of smart charging facilities and intelligent rubbish bins, providing Smart City development with valuable big data and integrated interaction to improve citizens’ lives.”
