The cost of electric energy is a growing concern for city authorities and worldwide. The deployment of IoT management platforms for automated monitoring and management platforms for control of the pole-lights, and management of light-related failures enables cost-effective and efficient streetlights' operation. As a result, these platforms can provide a solution for safer roads and public areas and enhanced security for citizens and city visitors.
The IoT platforms for intelligent street light control are equipped with the following features a) cloud-based or on-prem installations, b) real time analytics, c) IoT device management, d) connectivity management and e) cyber secured operation.
This paper covers management of end point IoT devices, a separate layer process conducted by a 3rd party vendor agnostic to the type of the lighting element, the controller and the communication network.
