gridComm, a provider of power line communication solutions that enable the transformation of traditional power grid into a smart grid, signed a partnership agreement with an LED manufacturer in Indonesia, PT Siklon Energy Nusantara, to jointly provide a cloud-based Street Light Management Solution to the Indonesian market.
gridComm’s Intelligent Street Lighting Solution serves as a cornerstone of a smart city with a reduced carbon footprint. Based on the company’s GC2200, the next-generation Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access PLC transceiver, gridComm’s Intelligent Street Lighting Solution transforms traditional street lighting into energy-aware, remotely managed and monitored web-based networks.
Smart city is the latest buzzword in urban planning around the world. Smart cities encourage the use of technology to improve governance and enhance citizen well being, while at the same time reducing costs by increasing productivity.
Jakarta has already launched the smart city blueprint, which connects citizens and government agencies through the cloud. The natural next step for the city will be to transform its 350,000 streetlights into smart street lights.
gridComm provides power line communications semiconductors, devices and systems that enable the transformation of the electricity grid into a smart grid. By connecting utilities to their customers, gridComm’s semiconductors, modules and DIN Rail PLC modems help to transform meters, streetlights, homes, and industrial buildings and other appliances into energy-aware “smart devices” that react to conditions on the grid, thus implementing a worldwide communications network or Internet of Things (IoT) based on the existing power grid. gridComm is headquartered in Singapore.
