Yotta and CIMCON Lighting sign collaboration agreement to help drive smart city asset management

Yotta and CIMCON Lighting have signed a collaboration agreement to provide smart city customers with the opportunity to further maximise their streetlight infrastructure with integrated solutions from both companies.

The collaboration agreement will enable the integration of CIMCON’s LightingGale smart lighting Central Management System (CMS) and its NearSky smart city platform with Alloy, Yotta’s connected asset management platform. This will provide cities with enhanced data collection, data processing and asset management capabilities through an end-to-end solution that solves the problem of simplifying data collection in digital cities. CIMCON will be able to efficiently push data from both its LightingGale CMS and NearSky software into the Alloy Management System.

CIMCON’s NearSky smart city edge platform transforms a city’s existing streetlights into a smart city infrastructure by providing the “3Ps”: Power, Permitting and Processing in a single device, removing the barriers that cities traditionally face when implementing new sensors, devices and applications. The NearSky platform provides a fiscally neutral path to improving municipal operations, enhancing public services, and generating new revenues for partners across the “Pole Economy” ecosystem, including data analysts, system integrators, app developers, urban surface providers, municipalities, device providers, financial institutions and network companies.

Yotta’s Alloy platform seamlessly connects people, systems and assets, is scalable across a myriad of asset types and integrates with all systems through powerful APIs.

“Yotta’s Alloy platform is the perfect fit for our LightingGale and NearSky solutions,” said Mark Cullum, Associate Director, CIMCON Lighting. “Yotta’s asset management capabilities will serve as a vital component that will help cities become smarter through fast, accurate and effective access to data from sensors and applications that monitor traffic and air pollutants, measure air quality, monitor for floods, and detect threats from existing streetlamps. In addition, Alloy will enable us to offer an end-to-end platform including live asset management that will provide cities and councils with a single system for monitoring and tracking of sensors, lighting node and driver faults, issuing tickets and reporting on these issues in a paper free environment.

Anique Bravenboer, Alliance Manager, Yotta said: “We’ve been aware of CIMCON’s pioneering work in the Pole Economy for some time and we’re delighted to be collaborating. The collaboration is testament to both CIMCON and Yotta’s cutting edge underlying technologies which allow our solutions to integrate quickly and easily. Together we can provide an instant solution for a market that is becoming increasingly aware of the value of multi-service hybrid networks.”
